If you are like me, and many others, you may find it difficult to maintain a good, sound sleep when there is too much ambient light in the room. This can be especially problematic in rooms that have windows facing parking lots, main streets or other well-lit areas. In addition, those people that have work or other schedules that require sleeping during daylight hours may find it difficult to stay asleep when there is so much light coming in the room.
Fortunately, there are some products on the market that can help. When we had our custom curtains made for the entire house, we had the fabricator using an extra thick insulating panel in our bedroom curtains to help block the excess light when the curtains are closed.
For those who are not planning to purchase custom curtains, or frequent travelers that stay in bright hotel rooms, Blackout Curtain ToGo has a solution for you. You can order their affordable curtains direct, from their website. Here is some additional information about their product-line:
Blackout Curtain ToGo© AKA Blackout ToGo© is a unique sleep assistant that all light sensitive travelers should take with them.
Blackout ToGo© is a kit of multiple sized Blackout Curtains that block light from LED lamps, alarm clocks, any electronic device that emits light when off and light from outside your room.
Blackout ToGo© will take a light polluted hotel room or home environment and in a few minutes convert it into a darkened room that is easy to fall asleep in.
