Imagine falling perfectly to sleep; pillow, atmosphere, sound, temperature, and the amount of light are just as you like it. Now imagine a state of lighting perfection for two people sleeping in the same room. Did your happy thoughts just crash?
For most of us, sleep time is made up of less sleep than it once was so the stakes for a night of good sleep are high. If, for example, you sleep more successfully in darkness with a background of white noise instead of moonlight and silence, your habitual brain will protest that change.

What happens when the person sharing your bedroom likes moonlight and silence while sleeping? A happy middle ground, especially when sleep-partners prefer different light control, is incremental compromise while allowing for each person’s version of sleep happiness.
You can fix it! There are shades and blinds for both of you. No matter your personal light control preference, if your window-covering investment shows consideration for the other person’s light needs, it’s money saved that you would otherwise spend in couple’s therapy.
We have collected five shades that have far-reaching charm, diversity of styling and crucially, relationship-saving light control options; from complete darkness to the soft ambience of a moonlit night.
