Help your child sleep better

All parents know the importance of a good night's sleep for their children. Apart from obvious steps like a regular wind-down routine, and decorating the bedroom in restful, muted tones, you can also make the wise decision to invest in Blackout curtains. These will reduce the amount of light and hopefully result in a longer night's sleep.

Block out the light

All of our curtains are lined as standard. Alternatively, you can choose a Blackout lining.

This heavy lining significantly reduces the amount of light coming into a room, helping to create a dark and cosy environment for sleep.

Blackout curtains really are an all-year round solution.

Close them in summer to block out the light when early morning and late evening sun can cause havoc with sleeping routines.

In winter, keep them drawn to help your room feel snug and warm, and reduce heat loss through your windows.

Choose calming colours

Calm, soothing colours will work better to create a restful environment for your child than bold, stimulating colours.

These speckled pastel pink curtains are an ideal choice. You could also choose fun animal prints, dots and pastel prints, all with Blackout linings.

Layer with a blind

While Blackout curtains do dramatically reduce the light filtering into a room, there may be some light seepage around the top and the edges of the curtains. Layering your curtains with a Blackout blind to help reduce the light even further.

All our blinds either have a cord-free mechanism, or come with a safety device in line with the latest European regulations. This safety feature will be installed by your local advisor at the time of fitting.
