The Best Blackout Shades for Night Shift Workers
With the new house it was definitely time for upgrading our window coverings. In our old home the master bedroom faced North and a few fabric blackout shades were fairly effective at keeping the home dark most of the day. Additionally at the time Drew was working swing shift, so total darkness was not really necessary to ensure he had a good night sleep.
In the new house our master bedroom faces west. During the mid afternoon the sun coming throughout the windows is BRUTAL. From about 11 am on, the sun streams directly through the front window into headboard. Imagine trying to sleep with all that going on. Right after moving into the new house Drew’s shift moved from swings to graves. One of the top things that make being married to a police officer challenging is learning how to balance his unorthodox work hours against my regular 9 to 5.
