Tips Tuesday Mounting Options

Inside vs. Outside Mount? What’s the Difference?

Mounting Options 

Inside or Outside Mount? What’s the difference?

If you’re having trouble deciding between the two, we’ve got a simple explanation that will help you better determine which window treatment mounting option is right for you!

Outside Mount

The outside mount is the most common mounting option for drapery. The decorative hardware is attached to the outside of the window frame and you get to decide exactly how much of the curtain rod you want to be visible. 3 Day Blinds offers a variety of different decorative hardware options! You’ll enjoy choosing between Custom Wrought Iron, Adjustable Metal, and Custom Wood. Your design consultant will help you decide how exactly you want to hang your window treatments.

Check out our Custom Drapery!

Inside Mount

The inside mount is ideal for Cafe curtains and is also great when using Rod Pocket top and bottom panels. This type of mount attaches to the inside of the window frame. Choose an inside mount for areas where you want to allow light in from above, or minimize the distraction of a beautiful decorative hardware piece.

 It’s finally the summertime! The beach is the best place to be this time of year.  Smelling like sun block as you enjoy the sand, surf, breeze and simply taking pleasure in relaxing along the shore. The coastal design helps bring that feeling home. The pattern Barrier Reef | Sea Breeze is a beautiful fabric that is both fun with the reef pattern and sophisticated with the embroidery. By adding a Roller Shade in Calceta | Driftwood, you’ll have all the elements you need to complete that beach feel.

Greys and Neutrals from 3 Day Blinds

Souce: Buzznet, 3 Day Blinds

Don’t limit your silver to just jewelry and kitchenware! Being easy on the eyes, grays are the neutral of the season. Grays are everywhere and offer a bit of sophistication to soften the environment. Most shades of gray are absorbent colors that change with the light, so it’s easy to match with your current decor. With an intricate pattern, Eminence | Silver adds the visual interest you need to intrigue your guests with your elegant style.  In addition, metallic colors such as copper are playing an increasingly important role in modern design. Eminence | Russet embraces the copper tone with highlights of yellow and a subtle hint of clay. Aren’t these modern metals marvelous!

3.       To Expose or Not to Expose?… Ex Marks | Snow

We love what we do and we are so thrilled to help Jaclyn Cashman and other customers like her find the right window treatments for their space.

Jaclyn Cashman contacted 3 Day Blinds after I had a really good experience with you guys and said you should be advertising on Herald Radio. More people should know about you. I will endorse your brand. I’m very happy.”

Get your baby to sleep during Daylight savings

Kids, Sleep and Daylight Saving Time

Get your baby to sleep during Daylight savings

Today, over 70 countries worldwide use Daylight Savings Time and over one billion people every year set their clocks one hour ahead when DST starts.

For most of us the time change means getting off of work during daylight hours and waking up before the sun rises, but for parents everywhere, it could mean spending another hour coaxing your little ones to sleep. There are plenty of positives to daylight savings, but the hassle of adjusting their sleeping pattern isn’t one of them. The early-to-bed, early-to-wake routine will be especially hard to sell to your kids.

The “spring forward/fall back” switch messes with everyone’s internal clock, but there are some steps you can take to ensure you all get a good night’s sleep.

Preparing for the Time Change

Sleep tips for Daylight Savings

Carycitizen.com

   1. Control the Lights

Layering drapery panels over blinds or shades can reduce the amount of light in your child’s room and help them fall asleep during daylight hours. Many window treatments, such as 3 Day Blinds’ Woven Wood Shades, can also be paired with blackout liners. It will take some adjusting, but extra layers will help you fool your child’s internal clock and ensure you all get a good night’s rest.

   2. Tire them out – Preferably in the Sun

Mealtonin is a hormone that helps control your sleep and wake cycles. According to sleep consultant, Karen Schwarzback, “Daylight sun exposure stimulates corisol, and actually helps improve Melatonin levels at the end of the day.” Exposing children to sunlight in the early afternoon will boost their Melatonin production.

Let your children play in the sun. It will help them sleep in the evening.

3.  Shift their Schedule Slowly

In the days leading up to the time change, try making your child’s bedtime 15 minutes earlier each night. By making the adjustment slowly over a few days, it will be easier to get your child’s internal clock on track and have them sleeping soundly at bedtime.

4. Be Mindful of the Foods You Serve Before Bedtime

Sugar is a stimulant and you will want to cut out all sugar before bedtime avoid carbohydrates that will turn into sugar. For snacks before bedtime, choose instead, foods with complex carbs with protein and calcium. Serve some of these foods on the list that will encourage sleep.

  •  Fish
  • Jasmine Rise
  • Tart Cherry Juice
  • Yogurt
  • Almonds
  • Walnuts
  • Whole Grains
  • Kale
  • Bananas
  •  Chickpeas
  • Fortified Cereal

eatingwell.com has an extensive list of foods that will promote sleep and can help you prepare your little ones for bedtime.

Daylight savings takes some adjusting for everyone, but especially children who have  a routine bedtime. Help your family get back on track with their sleeping habits by being mindful of the foods they eat, dimming the lights, and giving them plenty of time outdoors. These recommendations will help make daylight savings easier for everyone.
