Sleep better with Hunter Douglas Blackout Blinds

We all know the struggle of trying to put kids down for a nap, getting a restful sleep before your night shift, or achieve the movie theater experience in your living room. Unfortunately eliminating light pollution from sunlight, streetlamps, cars and other outdoor lights is hard to achieve without the right blackout window treatment. Here is an explanation why blackout blinds are beneficial and Barrydowne Paint’s recommendation of products to help you blackout any room in style.


Nap time, anytime

Don’t let the sun tell you when you can sleep. Want a nap at two in the afternoon? Go for it with Blackout Blinds!

Bedtime, anytime

Trying to put kids to bed ontime is a stressful time. Make it easier by eliminating outside light to give them no excuse to stay awake.

Get the movie theatre experience

Going to the movies would not be the same if there was a glare on the screen from outside light. Now have movie night at home without the glare from outside light!

Night shift

Got stuck with the night shift or just a natural nighthawk? Make sure you still get the rest you deserve by making it night in your room, during the day!

Keep Harmful UV Rays Out

The sun’s UV rays can be harmful to your furniture, fading wall colours and can dry out soft materials. With motorized blinds you can set a schedule to keep out UV rays when they are strongest keeping your room cool and dark.

Sleep Better, Feel Better

Your body produces a hormone called melatonin which makes you sleepy and helps you get a restful sleep. Studies show that sleeping with light pollution can cause depression and unrestful sleep by producing lower melatonin levels which is reversible if you eliminate light pollution. Another good reason to use blackout blinds!


Hunter Douglas Duette & Applause Honeycomb Shades

The Duette Honeycomb is one product that can help you blackout a room while also being energy efficient. The honeycomb design of the shade traps air within the cell and insulates the room. This resists heat flow which results in lower heat loss in the winter months, while the summer heat is kept out in the summer months!

Hunter Douglas Vignette Roman Shades

The Vignette design has an attractive shape and style that makes it decorative and can enhance the look of a space while still allowing you to eliminate outside light pollution. Who said blackout shades had to be boring?

Hunter Douglas Roller Shades

Roller shades have the classic, simple, timeless look while doing what they do best, keeping outside light out. They can easily be enhanced by curtain panels and decorative drapes to spruce up any space.

Get the rest you deserve! You can thank us later after you have the best nap of your life.
