Why You Need Blackout Shades for Homes

November 05, 2019 2 min read

These beautiful blackout shades and other window treatments are available at JC Licht locations

How many times has this happened to you? You finally settle into bed after a long day and are just starting to get comfortable and drift off to sleep, when a car drives down your street and the headlights shine right into your window snapping you awake. Even once is too many times, especially with something so preventable. Your sleep is too important to let a little extra light interrupt if you can help it. JC Licht is here to tell you why you need blackout shades for homes near Chicago, IL.

Blackout window shades can help provide you with a better night’s sleep by keeping excess light out of your bedroom. Even a little bit of artificial light can really mess with your circadian rhythm and keep you from getting the proper amount of deep sleep. At JC Licht, we offer several amazing Hunter Douglas shade styles that provide unprecedented light control. The Duette® Honeycomb Shades have recently been innovated with the LightLock™ system that adds special side channels to the shade and keeps out more light than other blackout shades have been able to.

Because blackout shades are often made of thicker materials to keep light out, they also usually provide added window insulation to your bedroom. This can make your bedroom more comfortable which can also help you sleep better at night, but you can also lower your energy bills because you won’t have to rely so heavily on your thermostat. Solera® Soft Roman Shades and Sonnette™ Cellular Roman Shades, along with the aforementioned Duette® shades are great options for blackout shades that can also increase your home’s energy efficiency.

It’s recommended that people spend about one-third of their life sleeping. Losing out on any of this precious time can be super harmful to both your mental and physical well-being. The lack of sleep has been tied to numerous issues like depression, weight gain, and more. To learn more about how blackout window treatments can help you reclaim your nights and enjoy better sleep, contact the experts at JC Licht today.
