Blackout shades for good sleep is important. Sleeping at its best at sea is no exaggeration. Relaxing and holiday in combination and being slowly cradled to sleep cannot be wrong. Unfortunately, it can be wrong. It gets bright early in the morning and it is warm in the boat. The sun often rises 4 – 5 in the morning and it is earlier than most people want to get up in the morning. There are few blackout shades that today can offer a darkness for the best sleep that you deserve. Blackout blinds with ventilation for small hatches from Waterline Design offer a practical solution..
Darkness is essential to sleep. The absence of light sends a critical signal to the body that it is time to rest. Light exposure at the wrong times alters the body’s internal “sleep clock”—the biological mechanism that also regulates sleep-wake cycles—in ways that interfere with both the quantity and quality of sleep..
Managing your exposure to light in your boat and in your cabin is fundamental to creating a healthy sleep environment. With awareness, attention, and some simple planning, you can create a boat berth that guards against unwanted light at night and protects the quality of your sleep until you are ready to wake. Blackout blinds and shades on hatches keep outside light from disturbing your sleep. Make sure window coverings are heavy enough to fully block light, and are well fitted to avoid slivers of streetlight or early morning sunlight from filtering in. Even brief exposure to light can interfere with sleep. Our blackout shades / blinds from Waterline Design are designed to help you have a better sleep when you have small hatches. Remember that some hulls also lets through a lot of light..
You can also have an open hatch, dark inside in your cabin and still have some ventilation air / in the boat. We have designed the blind with double layer of material that overlaps each other. It will create an air gap. The air is small so air will not run fully but it will create ventilation. If you want to have greater air quantity, you can put something (like a sponge) between the layers to force it open. All to have a good sleep with blackout shades..
