What Are the Benefits of Blackout Curtains?

Niche by Eastern Accents Tonkin Renae Breeze Curtain PanelCurtains are probably not the foremost topic on your mind, but there’s actually a specific kind of curtain that’s better for your bedroom than any other curtain: the blackout curtain.

What is a blackout curtain, you ask? It’s a window covering that has coating or lining across the back to block light. Depending on the number of times it has been coated, a curtain can block from 50% to even 100% of light from a direct source.

You can probably see why a blackout curtain is the ideal curtain for your bedroom. Even if you’re typically up before the sun, they’re an excellent investment if you live in an area with a lot of light pollution, such as a busy city. Blackout curtains are especially beneficial if you’re a new parent, if you travel a lot, or if you’re sensitive to light.

We’re not the only ones who support the use of blackout curtains. The National Sleep Foundation asked Alison Vinciguerra of longdistanceloving to participate in their #GoodNights Challenge, and she specifically mentioned the usefulness of her blackout curtains.

If you’re considering adding blackout curtains to your bedroom décor, you’ll find that they’re definitely worth the investment. Check out our selection at linensforliving.com, and you’ll find the best prices — so your investment doesn’t break the bank. Sweet dreams!
