Get a Better Night’s Sleep with Shutters

Imagine, it’s been a long hard day and you’re more than ready to hit the hay to finally get some sleep. You’re drifting off peacefully, only to be rudely awakened by yet another outside disturbance. From a group of too loud kids parading down the Manchester streets, to that pesky streetlamp light that continues to filter through the curtains. Whatever it is we’ve all been there, and we’ve all lost our precious sleep over it. However, when you look after your windows, they can in turn look after you. Choosing to purchase a set of shutters could be just the answer you’ve been looking for…

When you purchase your shutters from us here at Shutters Manchester, there is a choice between solid panel and louvred shutters. Luckily both are fantastic when it comes to blocking out unwanted outside light when it’s time to get some rest. A solid shutter provides a thick natural barrier against your windows, and when closed stops any light from getting in, giving you a blackout effect. Which means no matter what time of day you can snooze to your heart’s content! Louvred shutters can be adjusted so that in the daytime gorgeous natural light can come into your home, but when closed also block out the light. So that no matter the style of shutter, the control over the light entering your home is in your hands. Perfect for every light sleeper out there.

Not only is it important to have a healthy amount of sleep, but it is important to have an undisturbed night’s sleep, as this can affect your overall mood in general. Thankfully alongside light control, shutters do an amazing job at blocking out any outside noise that could potentially wake you from your slumber. Removing the chance of any outside factors waking you up! The thickness of either the wood or PVC, depending on the material of your shutters, acts as a barrier protecting your peaceful room from any annoying loud noises coming from the outside world. With louvred shutters, simply adjusting the slats to close them helps block out the outside world allowing you to rest easy.

Lastly the temperature of your bedroom can also really influence the quality of your sleep, with warmer weather making it more uncomfortable and difficult to fall asleep. Shutters provide a barrier against your windows and when choosing full height or tier on tier shutters the whole window is covered. This can help to cool your bedroom by blocking out any harsh summer sunlight. Keeping a room darker during the day can help to keep it cooler and easier to sleep in at night-time. Alternatively keeping your windows open and angling your shutters slightly means that air can easily filter through at night whilst keeping the room dark – a huge bonus in the summertime.

Any style of shutter is a great benefit to any bedroom, especially for those who struggle getting to sleep. You’ll be shocked at just how much of a difference they can make to your sleep schedule!
