Everyone loves getting a good night’s sleep. Getting a full eight hours of sleep at night is one of the best ways to feel healthy and ready to take on the day. However, many people struggle to fall asleep. Even if people feel tired, they can struggle to fall asleep due to the abundant artificial lighting in society. Every person functions on a natural circadian rhythm, which helps us feel alert and awake at the right time while helping us to feel ready for sleep at nighttime. Our circadian rhythm largely depends on light. Since our ancestors slept in almost total darkness, our bodies still sleep best in total darkness.

It can be hard to get your home totally dark unless you get quality blackout shades for your bedroom. Luckily, Hunter Douglas offers various collections of shades that have available additions and customizations that make for effective blackout shades. At Beginning to End Interiors, we can help with choosing blackout shades for homes.

Hunter Douglas Shade Liners

Many collections of Hunter Douglas shades are available with both attached liners and independent liner options. The Vignette® Modern Roman Shades collection is a great choice to use as your base for blackout shades. By attaching a sewn-in liner, you can enjoy both a significant reduction in light and noise pollution. The soft surface of the Roman Shades works well to dampen sounds, making your bedroom a perfect environment for sleeping.

These Roman Shades, among other shades, are available with the Duolite® independent liner system. This creative feature lowers behind your main shades independently while maintaining a sleek look by operating on the same headrail. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of having two opacities in one shade. You can have a low opacity Roman shade to let in soft, diffused natural light for a gentle glow in your bedroom and daytime privacy while at the same time having the option to lower the liner system to sleep better at night.

The Designer Roller Shades are another great choice for a window treatment that will help you sleep more soundly. You can add both an independent or attached liner to this stylish roller shade. Additionally, these shades are designed to have the smallest light gap in the industry, meaning you can count on achieving almost complete darkness in your bedroom at night.

Duette® Honeycomb Cellular Shades

Not only will you sleep soundly knowing these insulating shades are helping to save you money on your energy bills, but you will also benefit from the available LightLock™ feature. Using an innovative design featuring overlapping side panels with micro-ridges, this system boasts an industry first with the fact that it blocks 100% of the light from outside. The design of the cellular shades will also help dampen sounds, adding to the perfect sleeping environment.
