Window Treatment Options For A Sunny Bedroom

Home & Garden Blog

If you have just moved into a new house and you are designing your bedroom interior design, and have a particularly sunny bedroom, then you understand the importance of good window treatments. The morning sun might be nice if you're out in the livingroom, but if it is blasting into your bedroom and waking you up every morning, then something needs to be done. You can't just resign yourself to letting yourself be woken by a blast of sunshine every single day. It's just too much of a nuisance and can actually make you less productive at work.

Venetian Blinds

One of the best ways to cover the windows is to install Venetian blinds. These are classic blinds that originate in Italy, but have become popular the world over. They are great because they can be adjusted and you can let in more or less light depending on your style. The blinds have long rods at the corner that can adjust the blinds. The blinds can be opened up during the day to let in light and closed at night if you plan on sleeping in. You can get these style blinds in metal, glass, wood, or a vinyl design.

Roman Shades

If you want a bit more of a soft design, then you should look into getting Roman shades. These are perfect for people who like cloth drapes, but don't want the long, sweeping design of regular drapes. Roman shades pull up vertically, like blinds, except that they are made of a softer material and are not individual. They are one long piece and when they pull up they fold in on one another. The cool thing about these shades is that they come in lots of different colors and patterns. This is perfect if you want to get the drapes to match a colorful pattern that you have on the wall (they are excellent for wall paper rooms) and they are also perfect to dull the sun without completely blocking it out. You can get a soft Roman blind material that is not heavy enough to black out the sun, but is enough to dull the brightness so that you are able to get a good nights sleep.

Blackout Blinds

If you are the type who really hates the sun, and you want to get some peace and quiet while you sleep, then you have to get something called blackout blinds. These will work to prevent any sun from leaking into your room. They can be lowered at night before you go to sleep and completely darken the room. They are absolutely essential if you are someone who works the evening shift and need to sleep during the day.
