LET THE LIGHT SHINE IN
We admit it. We look for curtain tracks everywhere we go, especially when we stay in hotels. On a recent visit to Las Vegas, a team member stayed in a hotel that was located right on the strip. The flashing lights and sounds are 24 hours a day because, you know, it's the city that never sleeps. Well, our team member happens to enjoy sleep and was sorely disappointed when she discovered the room she was staying in did not have curtains (let alone curtain tracks). This hotel instead chose to use plantation shutters on every window. While shutters LOOK nice, they aren't the most effective when it comes to blocking out light or sound. Perhaps in Vegas, that's the whole idea... they'd rather you DIDN'T sleep.
CAN I GET SOME ZZZZZs...
For a solid night's sleep, we always recommend using eclipse curtains, also known as black out curtains. They block 98% of light and are sound absorbing. They are extremely effective in creating a darkened, quieter room when installed using a ceiling mount curtain track, as they cover the entire window. Many hotels (but not this particular one in Las Vegas) use eclipse curtains and ceiling mount curtain tracks because they want their guests to get a good night's sleep. For this very reason, we hear from customers who want to replicate this look for their very own home.
If you are interested in creating a dark, quiet sanctuary in your bedroom, our eclipse light blocking curtains will certainly help. These curtains are custom made to your exact specifications so you can be sure they are perfect for your project. Contact us and we can walk you through your project. In the meantime, if you visit Las Vegas, we recommend a sleep mask and earplugs if you want to actually sleep.
