Light from the sun is always welcome in your home, but it’s not exactly pleasing when it hits your eye when you’re still catching those Z’s. On top of disturbing your restful slumber, too much daylighting also increases the heat entering your windows, which can induce light sensitivity and even early morning headaches.
In this post, your window replacement experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Philadelphia shares the different window treatments that ensure a restful sleep.
These are the go-to window treatments and, depending on the size, can cover the entire window completely to block out the light. You can think of these as blankets for your window and are a great choice if you want to completely shut out the light coming from your windows.
There is a downside though to using drapes. These are usually made of heavier fabric that, while blocking the light coming from the windows, can heat up quickly from prolonged exposure. The drapes themselves are very thick and can make a room feel stuffier than usual.
Roller shades are a great alternative to drapes if you’re looking for something more economical and easier to install. They have a sleeker design that allows them to fin into any window frame and even match their style! What makes it a better option than drapes is they don’t add unnecessary crowding in the bedroom and don’t contribute to any heating through prolonged use.
