If you have a young child in the home, you know all too well what naptimes and bedtimes are like. Though every parent hopes that their child will be one of the lucky ones that goes to bed on demand, this is a very rare scenario. But, there are things you can do to help your child fall asleep and stay asleep. Sometimes, there are obvious reasons why young children aren’t sleeping well such as noise from the neighbors, sunlight coming through and an overall lack of privacy. Solar window film can alleviate these problems and help baby sleep through the night so you can, too.
Here are five great reasons why you should install window film in your baby’s nursery.
- It darkens the room.
It’s difficult for babies to fall asleep when it’s the middle of the day and the sun is still going strong. It helps to have a room that is quiet and dark. Sure, you can purchase blackout blinds or drapes, but these aren’t always good options. (More on that later.) The easiest, safest and most effective way to darken the room is with a set of privacy window films.
- It creates more privacy.
Adding more privacy to your child’s room is another benefit of window films. If you opt for privacy film, you can darken baby’s room and prevent people from being able to see into the nursery. This is especially helpful if you live in close quarters and don’t have a lot of personal space around your home.
- It protects baby from UV rays.
All window films block most UV rays from the home, but some block more than others. Ideally, the films should keep 99% of UV rays out of the room, allowing baby to sleep comfortably without getting exposure from the sun. If there are large windows in your child’s room, window film will surely make it safer and more comfortable.
- It’s much safer than blinds and curtains.
Blackout blinds and curtains are typically a parent’s first option, but these can be dangerous. If your child sleeps underneath a window, hanging blinds or curtains becomes a choking hazard. Plus, you have to go through the trouble of installing them and possibly putting holes in the wall. Window film is easy to install and has no cords or pull chains.
- It spruces up the nursery.
Window film is available in many styles so you can choose a color or pattern that matches the nursery. Check out decorative window films from SOLYX and you’re bound to see something that you like. Also, you don’t have to worry about the window films fading over time like blinds and drapes will do. Solar film even prevents fading in the home, keeping baby’s nursery furniture and linens in mint condition.
