As a parent you probably have experienced the problem of putting your child to sleep during the day. It’s quite a common problem that most parents face and one main reason for the child not going to sleep during the day is insufficient darkness in the sleeping room. Whatever means you may adapt to block sunlight through blinds or shades prove to be insufficient for creating complete darkness.
The solution to above problem is to have some cellular blackout shades or blinds to cover the area. This is something that is proven to be helpful for putting the child to sleep in the afternoons. If there is no light coming into the room it’s perfect for kids to sleep.
Are you aware that cellular blinds can really help you save money? It’s their constructional design that really keeps away the sunrays. Some of the users with only three of such blackout shades realized a saving on electricity bills over a period of one year. A double sized window opening covered in at least 3 areas saves at least 75 dollars.
Now, don’t jump to the conclusion that they may not be worth investing, as they certainly are. But, we like to bring to your notice that as far as material is concerned, these blinds are not as strong as you might imagine them to be. You should understand that as they need to be clipped into the upper edge of window opening, a specialist be entrusted for their installation, else you may damage them or tear their edges. Likewise, large blackout shades tend to get bent in the middle, if not secured properly. That is because of the weight of the fabric. Many a time the metallic rail at the head of the blind may bend on having to support too much of weight or pressure in the middle.
Yet, if you want to have blackout shades, why not entrust the job to a specialist and save yourself from unheeded troubles.
Apart from the blackout blinds another type of blinds are matchstick blinds. The outstanding feature of these blinds is the homely look they present. They may not block the sun or its heat as effectively as the blackout variety, but they are preferred for their naturalness still.
Should you be contemplating of having these blinds for your home, you should not ignore the fact that they go hand in hand with the Oriental decor. You may want to have them if your room has modern look but has some elements of bamboo therein.
Matchstick blinds have a shortcoming! These are more delicate than any other kind of blackout blinds or shades and thus get damaged very easily. But, if you want that exclusive look, then perhaps this is the best choice.
Another thing you would better know before hand is that they very closely follow Roman style of blinds and are thus quite expensive too. This is not to discourage you from going in for those, but just a bit of information lest the high quote floors you when you receive that from your chosen vendor.
