If you have problems with to much sun light in your home, you can get rid of this problem quite easy. All you need to do is to purchase and install some blackout curtains and that’s it. This is the easiest way to block the sunlight and get even more privacy for your rooms. Most people search for sun blocking curtains because that is the cheapest and easiest option to use.
I know I have problems to rest and take a nap if there is sun light coming from the windows in my bedroom. And this is even more a problem if you want to take a rest in your living room. These rooms are usually built to have the most sunlight, which is a good thing. But what happens when you want to get away from it? This is why blackout drapes are a good solution.
Another problem you might have is the glare on your TV. Most people have experience with this and it can be very bothersome sometimes. Especially when we are watching a TV show we love, we don’t want any problems why we are having our fun time, right? And when there are soime darker scenes on TV, the glare is just too strong to bear. You wish to have complete blackout at that exact time. And easiest thing to do then is to use your window treatments. And draperies are easiest to use. You just need to pull them off and on, nothing easier.
It’s important to say that these curtains are made out of thick material. The fabric that is being used here is different from all others since these drapes have protective purpose, more than decorative one. You need to choose the fabric carefully because some of them are harder to maintain. You can’t use washing machine to clean them all, so make sure to check what you are buying.
When it comes to price, these are not expensive at all. They will be priced as other draperies are so you won’t have to break the bank at all. And if you find some time to look for a sale, you can get great discount drapes that will block out the sun. You can also find new cheap curtains from the retail stores that get them in bulk. Like I said, invest some time into this, and you can really get a great deal.
There are other types of window treatments that serve the same purpose as these products. You can use shutters, blinds or shades to shut off from the outside world. But these will be pricier and are harder to install. They will require more time to setup and to maintain. You should consider your options here, but I suggest you go with the one that suits you best. At the end of the day, it is your taste that will prevail. It’s never a bad thing to check out what choices you have and what competition offers. Once you have all the information, you will make much better decision. This is not the case with curtains and blinds only, but about everything else in life.
Here is an intresting video of how you actually get rid of that annoying sun.

It seems that people from Lisbon, Portugal, have a lot of experience with taking a nap and creating some dark with the help of window treatments.
You need to put in a lot of effort to make you home a peaceful and quiet place for relaxation. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to hire a consultant to realize that blackout curtains can help you achieving what you are looking for. Though there are many homeowners who like to keep their windows open to let the sunlight enter their rooms, an equal number don’t favor having so much of sunlight. Some people get uncomfortable if the room is too bright or warm and feel more at peace if the place becomes darker. Blackout curtains allow you to kill two birds with one stone.
My profession as a registered nurse has had the compulsion of working from seven in the evening to seven of the next morning for the last so many years. We call it as a graveyard shift as we have to work while the rest of the city is having sweet dreams. On reaching home the only thing I like to do is to just ignore everything else and go to sleep. Sleeping at that time of the day is no pleasure as one gets disturbed due sunlight, noise and heat coming through the windows. As a result I remained stressed out and didn’t feel refreshed after waking up in the evenings. I almost decided to request the authorities to put me to a different shift when some friend mentioned of special curtains that helped sleeping during the day.
Though I was a bit apprehensive, I had reached a stage where I was willing to try anything that helped me sleep undisturbed and peacefully during the day. All over the week I spent a lot of time arranging things in my room to make it more comfortable and installing blackout curtains. At end of all that exercise I felt this might work after all. Soon, my bedroom acquired a cool and relaxed atmosphere. It became very quiet and dark. On a Monday, on reaching home I went to bed after having had a shower. Believe me, I felt as if in another world and I could feel stress parting my body and mind! Before I realized, the alarm went off and it was time to get up. I could sleep like a baby and woke up fresh.
Blackout curtains changed my life. Now I get complete rest everyday, whatever time I reach home. That’s how I got exposed to using blackout curtain. Moreover, I didn’t have to leave the air conditioner on all the while; I would set the timer for two hours of working at the end of which the room remained cold enough for the entire time I was sleeping. Similarly, during winters too I could save a lot of energy, while the room remained warm. In fact my energy bills became low. I’m so happy and satisfied that I intend having all the windows covered with blackout curtains as soon as I can manage some time and money.
