3 Reasons You’ll Love Drapery in Your Bedroom

The bedroom is arguably the most important room in your home. Your quality of sleep is deeply tied to your physical health, mental health, and reactions. Everything from your risk of heart attack to your ability to focus during the day is linked to the quality of sleep the previous night. It follows that the features of your bedroom are essential, both for your contentment in that room and your wellness outside of it.

That’s why we believe drapery, such as Design Studio™ Drapery and Side Panels from Hunter Douglas, are ideal for bedroom settings. They offer not only a beautiful style but also some serious benefits for your quality of sleep. We’ve rounded up three of the reasons we believe you’ll love adding drapery to your bedroom windows.

1. Light Control

Too much light can impact your quality of sleep, even if you don’t realize it. Those exposed to bright lights during the night tend to sleep lighter and wake up more often. Draperies with a blackout liner are ideal for covering windows at night – especially if they’re layered over another window treatment for maximum light control. During the day, you can have a light-filtering shade temper the light coming into your bedroom for a soft, natural look. At night, you can draw the draperies closed and gain a new level of light control. If your primary window treatment already has room-darkening properties, drapery is useful in covering up the edges and any cord holes that might exist, reducing light leakage.

2. Energy Efficiency

Windows are notorious for being inefficient for energy usage in your home. Although they are necessary for natural light and safety reasons, windows heat your home in the summer and leach warm air out of your home in the winter – exactly the opposite of what you want to happen. Your HVAC system has to work much harder if your windows are uncovered, putting unnecessary stress on both your equipment and your wallet. A thick window covering such as drapery can reduce that strain significantly by insulating your windows. Less heat during the summer means your air conditioning will work better, and less heat out in the winter means your heater doesn’t have to work so hard. Since temperature is also an important factor in getting a good night’s sleep, you can rest easier for multiple reasons when your windows are protected by drapery.

3. Sound Insulation

Another reason to love the drapery in the bedroom is the additional sound insulation they provide. Especially when paired with another window treatment layer such as roller shades or honeycomb shades, drapery can drastically reduce the level of noise pollution entering your home through the windows. This is especially important for homes located on busy roads. The sound dampening quality can help your bedroom become your sanctuary and keep your nights uninterrupted by honking cars and squealing tires.
