Getting children used to a bedtime routine can be difficult at the best of times but is especially so when parents have little control over the amount of natural light seeping into their child’s bedroom. Not only can incoming light sources make it difficult for young children to sleep, but the intrusion can also increase their reluctance to go bed in the first place as many children associate light with the daytime.
Consequently, it is beneficial for both children and parents to be able to limit the amount of light entering the bedroom at bedtime, especially in built-up areas where street lamps or cars often cause even more light pollution. If you’re looking to stop external light from entering your child’s bedroom, a skylight blackout blind could provide the perfect solution. Here at Skylight Blinds, we offer a wide range of skylight blackout blinds that could benefit your child’s bedroom in a multiplicity of ways:
Light and Heat Protective
Having a skylight blind made from thermal blackout fabric will not only block out 100% of incoming light sources, but it will also help to insulate your child’s bedroom as the result of its tightly woven material. Additionally, brush clip features will also stop any thin strips of light from seeping in as well as reducing any further heat loss that may have occurred, all in all, providing a tough barrier against outside light and cooler temperatures.
Safety should be a top priority when it comes to blinds in children’s bedrooms, so purchasing a blind that complies with child safety regulations is incredibly important. Not only do our skylight blinds meet European regulatory standards but they also have no additional features such as chains or cords that could pose any additional risk to your child’s safety. Furthermore, while the majority of our blinds are spring operated, motorised skylight blinds are also a great option for children’s bedrooms as they can be controlled from below using a remote, meaning your child will never be put at risk of having an accident when trying to reach the blind to open or close it.
Variation of Colours and Patterns
Many envision blackout thermal blinds to have little aesthetic appeal due to their overtly practical purpose; however, this is usually not the case. Many blackout blinds come in a range of colours and patterns that are specifically designed for children’s bedrooms while remaining functional. From pastel pinks and blues to dots, dinosaurs and starry night prints, here at Skylight Blinds Direct, we’ve got a blind to suit every children’s bedroom, no matter what the style!
So, if you’re having trouble getting your little ones to sleep at night as the result of light pollution, a blackout blind could significantly reduce incoming light sources, making the bedtime routine that little bit easier for both you and the kids!
