Why Sound Blocking Curtains Are Good For Sleep

Soundproof Curtains – Do They Really Work? — urdesignmag

The average person spends nearly one-third of their life sleeping, and sound blocking curtains have been shown to be good for sleep. To improve the overall quality of sleep, it is important to create an environment that encourages relaxation and blocks out distractions. If you are looking for a way to block outside noise, soundproof curtains may be the perfect solution for your home or business.

There are many benefits to using blackout curtains in place of traditional drapes. As well as blocking out ambient light, they can help reduce disturbances caused by traffic, barking dogs, noisy neighbours etc.; resulting in better sleep. With so many places now accommodating working schedules around normal sleeping times (taking into account daylight savings) finding deep dark quiet time isn’t always easy. Whether you choose lined curtains or blackout curtains, soundproof curtains will help you get a better night’s sleep.

If you are currently using traditional curtains, it’s simply a matter of replacing them with blackout or lined soundproof curtains. Blackout curtains reduce exterior light exposure, helping the body to produce more melatonin (a natural hormone that promotes sleep). They also prevent disruption from ambient noise and block out draughts.

If your bedroom tends to be cold at night, consider adding thermal lining inside the new soundproof curtains. This traps warm air within creating a warmer sleeping environment. With our range of fabrics engineered for quality and featuring both thermal and acoustic insulation, our Sound Blocking Curtains will help make it easier to get some shut-eye.

Our sound blocking curtains are made with 100% blackout fabric that is specially treated to reduce light and sound transfer. The fabric has a special carbon coating on the back, which contains millions of tiny pores. These pores capture noise-causing particles, so you can rest easy knowing little disturbances won’t bother you while you sleep!

Blackout Curtains vs Soundproof Curtains

Though they are very similar in function, it’s important to note that there is a difference between blackout curtains and soundproof curtains. In simple terms: ‘soundproof’ means the total level of noise reduction whereas ‘blackout’ means reducing the amount of incoming light. While both types work well together when combined into one product, depending on your requirements either option could be a better choice.

Soundproof Curtains: These curtains absorb sound. They reduce noise transmission by trapping the sound waves which are created by movements and the environment.

The reason why we love blackout window treatments is that they block light and are also great at keeping the noise outside. With their opaque, dense structure, sound blocking curtains are both effective in retaining heat during winter months, while also helping to insulate air conditioners against heat loss during summer. This makes them cost-effective in more ways than one. The ability to reduce noise pollution will greatly improve your chances of falling asleep naturally, without the aid of medication. There are many options available when it comes to sound control, but blackout window treatments provide all benefits in one simple easy to use package!
