Window Treatments for Better Sleep

Sleep is essential for your brain and body to function at their best each day. Sleep boosts your immune system and helps your mind and body recharge. Studies have shown that up to 30% of American adults suffer from chronic insomnia, and one of the best ways to ensure a great night’s sleep is to have your room 100% dark. Any incoming light from neighbors' homes, passing traffic, or streetlights can trigger your body to wake up, as your brain will sense the light. Let the professionals at Advanced Window Fashions help you choose the best room-darkening window treatments for your style and your budget.

Vignette® Roman Shades near Mount Pleasant, South Carolina (SC) Hunter Douglas window treatments, cellular shades

Blackout Shades

Opaque fabric window treatments, like Roman shades, are a great choice for room darkening. They’re elegant and available in a range of opacities so you can get just the right amount of room-darkening needed for great sleep. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades from Hunter Douglas have optional Duolite® technology. This innovative feature has a sheer or light-filtering shade and a blackout liner on a single roller. A Roman shade will make your room classically stylish by day, and dark enough for great sleep by night.

Lights Out with de-Light

Blinds offer a variety of colors, styles, and finishes which make them a solid choice for any room. The problem with blinds is the light that sneaks in through the cord holes. The de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas eliminates cord holes to block up to 50% more incoming light than traditional blinds.

Vertical Blinds

You likely wouldn’t think of vertical blinds as your first choice for room darkening, but they are superb for large expanses of windows, and sliding doors. Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds from Hunter Douglas have curved vanes that mimic the appearance of elegant drapery folds. The wide, 3.5-inch louvers create fewer gaps for light to come in, and the vertical blinds feature a patented headrail that reduces gaps.

Cellular Honeycomb Shades

Duette® Honeycomb Shades from Hunter Douglas provides a layer of resource-saving insulation in addition to their room-darkening capacity. A bonus of the unique cellular structure is the shades’ ability to reduce sound, as well. Incoming noise will be reduced by up to 70% for a more peaceful sleeping environment.
