Who Needs Blackout Shades?

A nourishing deep sleep is mandatory to keep our bodies healthy and our minds clear. All of us need restful sleep as our bodies automatically reset every 24 hours; triggered by our exposure to light and dark. When our bodies get out of sync with our environmental clock – they go haywire. We are meant to follow the boost of our sleep hormone, which increases as darkness falls and signals our body to power down to rest. Unfortunately, our exposure to light is being driven away by many reasons; technology or nature.

It has been proven that creating a darker and calmer ambiance in your bedroom helps you in achieving the proper amount of sleep. Window treatments help you to achieve this ambiance.

Day and Night Shades

Did you know you can get two shades in one? It’s true! With Blinds To Go’s light-filtering/blackout shades, you can get both a light-filtering shade and a blackout shade, all in one install!
How It Works
The Day/Night cellular shade consists of a very long shade, half being light-filtering and half
being blackout. This allows you to switch between the two. When the shade is completely
raised, the light filtering section is stacked on top of the blackout shade. If you want light filtering, simply pull down on the light filtering handle. It will condense the blackout shade at the very bottom. If you want the blackout shade pull up the handle and push the light filtering section to the top of the shade. You don’t have to choose from light filtering and blackout, however. You can use both at the same time. Customize your light blockage by adjusting the sections of the shade however you want.
Best Places to Use Them
You can use the day/night shade in every room of your house, but they are particularly
beneficial in these spaces:
Bedrooms: Just because you like to sleep in complete darkness doesn’t mean you want it that way when you’re not sleeping. With this cell shade, you can use the blackout section at night and the light filtering in the day that way, your room is still bathed with beneficial natural light when it counts the most.
Media Room: No one likes a glare on the television when trying to enjoy a movie. While the
light filtering shade does help reduce the glare, just having light in the room can make it just as annoying. So, why not lower the blackout shade while you’re enjoying your favorite movie? Then when you want to have a family get-together, just use the light-filtering shade to retain your privacy but also give your home that beautiful light.
