Colour can do many things. And yes, helping you sleep is on the list.
It’s down to psychology. Different hues have different effects on our minds: some are calming while others are invigorating.
Combine chilled colours with blackout blinds that help stop sunlight from entering through windows and you’ll reap the rewards at bedtime. Take a look at a few of our sleep-friendly suggestions.
Blue is best
Blue = serene: most of us associate the shade with the soothing sea and the sky. But there’s more to this than a notional connection.
When you see blue, your body produces calming chemicals. So it makes sense to go for a design like our Tenby Navy Roller blind in the bedroom, as this is where chilling out is a hot priority.
Yellow is big and bright – it’s also surprisingly soothing. A study found people sleeping in yellow bedrooms clocked up an average of 7 hours 40 minutes shut-eye.
Go for our Tweedy Straw Roman blind fitted with a blackout lining. It’s sunny and sleepy at the same time!*
Go green and sleep better
Green is the natural colour. And what could be more relaxing than the lush landscapes of the countryside?
Take a leaf from nature: go for our Luna Green Skylight blind in a blackout fabric.
Silver is stylishly sleep-friendly
On the one hand, silver is about wealth and prestige. On the other, the colour is connected to the moon and stars; it’s this hand that makes the shade a great choice for the bedroom.
Check out our Ecopleat Graphite Pleated blind. As well as being blackout and a sleepy shade, this style benefits from a special fabric that can help insulate your home, keeping you cosy at bedtime.
*All of our Roman blinds can be fitted with a blackout fabric.
