If you’ve ever worked the night shift, you know how hard it is to get a good night’s sleep in the daytime. Aeroplanes, cars, children, deliveries – it seems everything is conspiring against you. With the best blinds for night-shift workers, at least one thing won’t be; the sun. Use thermal, blackout and UV blinds to their best benefit by hanging them in your bedroom to enable much-needed slumber.
Blackout blinds for night-shift workers
With a blackout blind, you want to eliminate as much ambient light as possible. Now, most people instantly think of dark-coloured blinds for this purpose. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Blackout blinds are now made with clever light-blocking backings in a similar colour to the front-facing side so that you can have them in nearly every colour or pattern you want. Here’s one of our favourites:
We love how the bright yellow just pops against a plain or textured wall. Since it does have that blackout backing, get a good night’s sleep without sacrificing your style. It’s easy to fit and ideal for bedrooms with morning sun.
Thermal blinds for night-shift workers
Maybe you don’t have a problem with the light in your room. That could be true if your room only gets the afternoon sun or is shaded all day. Then you need to think about losing heat in the winter. There’s nothing worse than waking up, shivering and then struggling to fall back to sleep. But if you invest in thermal blinds, you’ll find them ideal for reducing the heat loss from your windows. Not only is this good for your wallet, but it’s also better for the planet as we waste less energy heating our homes. Here’s one that we love:
In striking teal, this motorised blind is ideal for working into a wake-up routine with your home assistant. All at once, this blind is thermal, flame retardant and blackout for the best sleep of your life. And with a huge range of colours to choose from, you won’t need to compromise on design.
UV block blinds for night-shift workers
Perhaps your issue is maintaining a steady temperature in your room year-round. If it’s too hot in summer and too cold in the winter, it’s likely you need to look at UV block blinds. While many types of cloth can be treated to serve this function, aluminium blinds are the most popular option. Lightweight and available in a range of styles and patterns, we love this funky and striped piece:
Black and white has a new lease on life with this near-optical illusion blind in classic aluminium. Protect your soft furnishings from light bleaching and get a better night’s sleep with the UV blocking from these modern blinds. These are ideal to add some intrigue to your bedroom space while helping you sleep uninterrupted by temperature changes.
