Get More Sleep with Blackout Window Treatments

Get More Sleep with Blackout Window Treatments

The Well Dressed Window in Kelowna wants you to help you maximize your restful sleep with our expansive selection of high-quality blackout window treatments. Imagine waking up feeling refreshed and ready to take on what the day has in store for you! Controlling the amount of light your brain acknowledges once your eyes are closed can positively influence how you feel. Melatonin is a hormone released by the Pineal Gland in our brain, responsible for regulating our sleeping and waking patterns. Darkness enhances melatonin production while light exposure inhibits its’ release into our bloodstream. If you are inundated with excessive light at night, your melatonin levels can fall out of their natural rhythms, costing you precious Zzzz’s.

If brain fog, forgetfulness, irritation and feeling unwell are causing you concentration and focus issues at work and robbing you from being your best at home…lack of quality sleep could be the culprit. Thankfully, The Well Dressed Window has plenty of stylish solutions on hand that can pair well with your current window coverings. Perhaps, it’s time to start fresh and make each window a focal point in every room. Either way, we can help!

Quality Sleep Is Directly Related To Your Health and Wellbeing

When you retire for the evening and close your eyes, open them again and take a peek…how much light is seeping into your refuge? Alarm clocks, night-lights, electronics and the street light shining in from your bedroom window all contribute to disruptive sleep patterns and can have disastrous effects on your overall health. Sleep allows our body’s numerous healing processes kick into high gear. However, if you are not spending enough of the night surrounded by the blissful dark, your body is not capable of functioning at its’ highest level. Blackout window treatments that are correctly fit and installed can make a world of difference for every member of your family. Children especially can suffer from consequences, leading to difficult mornings and less than optimum academic performance

Artificial Light is a Detriment to Sleep Patterns

Sleep is powerful medicine. It is commonly something we take for granted and figure we can “catch up later on.” Science is discovering that lost sleep cannot be recovered and it is vital to ensure your nighttime environment (or daytime if you are on shift work) is conducive to a relaxing and non-stimulating atmosphere. The Well Dressed Window has worked with many Okanagan clients over the years. We love to hear how much better they feel once their custom window treatments with quality blackout curtains or Hunter Douglas blinds are installed. Our shift working clientele especially notices a huge difference in how much healthier and vibrant life feels after a great sleep. Set yourself and your family up for success. Artificial light and blue light is everywhere. Fall and winter is the perfect time to re-evaluate your natural hibernation schedule and create a sleep cave you can’t wait to cozy up in! We would love to help you maximize your potential for looking and feeling your very best. Call The Well Dressed Window today to schedule your consultation. We take pride in helping clients transform their space one window at a time!
