Did you know that humans can last longer without food then they can without sleep? This explains how regular sleep is a fundamental human need. Without sleep our brain loses its ability to function properly.
We lose our ability to plan, our sense of time, and the ability to use out part of the brain that controls language and memory. Essentially, humans need sleep to recharge our proverbial batteries. So to ensure consistent sleeping patterns, the dressing of your bedroom window is not something to be chosen lightly. Window shutters are something that can be generally overlooked but here’s why they should be your top choice to ensure you get the best night’s sleep possible.
The primary function of dressing your window is not just to keep away prying neighbors eyes but to also keep out sunlight, so you can remain asleep after the sun rises. Drapes and curtains can all too easily let sunlight seep through if you haven’t closed them properly. There is nothing more frustrating then been woken by a stray shining beam, sneaking through an unnoticed gap in the fabric. This is an unlikely occurrence with window shutters. Once shut, the sun doesn’t get a look in until you decide to reopen them.
Shutters are particular great for urban dwellers. The orange hew spewing from the street lamps is sometimes undeterred by your curtains, as mentioned above. Not only are street lamps a nuisance but also is the noise that comes with living in a highly populated area. Window shutters solve both these issues. They not only keep out sunlight securely, they can also greatly reduce outside noise.
Light issues and noise pollution aside, window shutters are easily maintainable. They are easy to keep clean meaning less dust and pollution, which helps prevent allergies, thus enhancing your sleep quality. I think it’s pretty clear that window shutters tick all the boxes when it comes to ensuring all your sleeping requirements are met.
As well as directly increasing the quality of your sleep, window shutters have other added benefits. Blinds, drapes and curtains follow a trends or interior fashions in comparison to the classic window shutter, which stands the test of time and can also be easily and inexpensively updated. Window shutters are seen as protecting your house against intruders. Window shutters increase the worth of your house, reduce your home insurance bill and prevent window dressings fast becoming a sight for sore eyes. All sure fire reasons to help you get the right shut eye!
