Competition Time: #DesignedByKids

Bedtime can be the most stressful part of the day for some parents, and this was highlighted from a recent survey completed with parents; children not settling and going to sleep being one of the many challenges during bedtime. 

A further study looked at how the environment we sleep in affected sleep patterns, and factors including a cool, dark room were examined. Surprisingly this study identified that the colour the room was decorated in played a role in how well people slept. According to the study, if you want to ensure you have a good night’s sleep then it’s best to make sure you’re picking cooler colours. Some people, i.e. kids, find cool, plain bedroom walls boring, especially with the recent popularity in bold feature walls. However, a benefit of keeping the wall colour simple is that you can really take advantage and add character to the bedroom with the features and fittings, especially when it comes to the windows.

My middle son has recently asked me if we can get him a blind for his bedroom window, as too much light is getting through, thus he is struggling to get off to sleep. It's little things like this that affect him overall, i.e. he doesn't get off to sleep well enough, late night, equals harder day at school for him - and to think he goes off to school tired, is not only nice for him, but also worrying to me.

With the recent research in mind, Blind 2 Go launched their new digital print Children’s Blinds. The range has 24 playful designs to choose from, all immaculately printed onto blackout roller blinds, making them a fun, and a wise addition to your child’s bedroom. And they are giving you the chance to win your very own custom designed blind, in their new #DesignedByKids competition.

To enter simply upload your child’s drawing (hand drawn or digitally created), to Blind 2 Go's




 and don't forget to include the competition hashtag #DesignedByKids.

The competition ends on the 31st March, so what you waiting for!  Get your child drawing, let their imagination run wild, have fun and submit your design.

The winner's entry will then be made into a real blind designed to fit in your home along with an additional £250 to spend at Blinds 2 Go.

Good luck.
