When refreshing your bedroom for the Summer, the right window treatments can make all the difference. Not only can they keep your room cool and dark for a good night’s sleep, but they can also enhance the overall aesthetic of your space. Here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect blinds or curtains for your bedroom this Summer.
Choose the Right Fabric
Fabric is key, if you’re easily disturbed by light, blackout blinds and curtains are the ideal choice. Made with a thick, tightly woven fabric that effectively blocks out sunlight during the day and streetlights at night, blackout blinds come in various styles, including roller blinds, roman blinds, vertical blinds, pleated blinds and roof blinds.
If you’re looking for something that can regulate the temperature of your bedroom so you’re not tossing and turning in the hot, stuffy Summer heat, consider thermal-lined blinds and curtains. They work by trapping the hot air between the window and the fabric, effectively keeping it out of your sleeping sanctuary. Plus, they can save you money on your energy bills by reducing the need for air conditioning. Our made-to-measure roman blinds and curtains are optimal for bedrooms because their thermal lining is also totally blackout. There’s no better option for creating the perfect sleeping conditions in Summer and all year round.
If you prefer the look of wooden or aluminium venetian blinds, these can still be used in the bedroom, but they are less superior at blocking out light compared to our blackout blinds. Therefore, we recommend pairing them with a blackout curtain to help you sleep undisturbed.
Consider Electric Blinds
Why not take it up a level with electric blackout blinds? These blinds create the perfect dark environment for a good night’s sleep and can also be set on timers to enhance your sleeping routine. Imagine waking up to the gentle flow of natural light instead of a jarring alarm clock. It’s like waking up in a luxury hotel every day. Electric blinds can be controlled with your smartphone from anywhere, meaning you can open and close them during the hottest and coolest parts of the day to regulate your bedroom’s temperature.
Think About the Style of Your Bedroom
Of course, when you’re choosing window treatments for your bedroom, you’ll also want to think about the overall style of your space. If you have a modern, minimalist bedroom, you may want to choose a sleek, simple blind that can blend seamlessly with your decor. On the other hand, if you have a more traditional bedroom, a lovely textured blind or set of curtains would pair well, or for an eclectic bedroom, you may want to choose a bold colour or pattern for your window treatments.
