Room Darkening Blackout Curtains for Blocking the Sun and Noise in Your Bedroom

Blackout curtains are as popular for blocking the sunlight in a teen girl's bedroom and master bedrooms as they are in a nursery where their room darkening qualities help baby to nap better. More people than ever are forced by their profession to keep odd hours which leaves them no choice but to sleep during the day when the sun is out in full force making sun blocking window treatments a necessity.

Some solve the problem with sleep masks but most guys don’t like that idea. And why should they be forced to sleep with a mask covering their eyes when they can sleep in a comfortable bedroom?

Sun Blocking Curtains Add Insulation

They block the heat of the sun in summer and their thick material holds the warmth in while keeping chilly breezes out during the winter months. When shopping look for drapes marked as both room darkening and insulated to save on your utility bill!

Another benefit of blackout shades and curtains is that the same fabric that blocks light also muffles street noise helping adults and kids to sleep better longer regardless of the time of day.
