Think about how you use the room you’re shopping for and factor in the answers to these questions when making your choices. Is it a bedroom, an office, a family room, your kitchen, a kid’s room or a nursery? What about the time of day it’s used – nighttime, daytime or around the clock?
Are you looking for total darkness so you can get some deep sleep? Maybe you need to keep the sun’s glare off your computer screen in your office or off your TV in your family room. How about in a nursery when you’re trying to get your baby to take a nap in the middle of a sunny day? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, blackout panels are for you.
In the other hand, if you’re looking for coverings thatlet a little sunlight in, but still want your privacy, choose something in a sheer or lightweight fabric. Lighter curtains are excellent atmaintaining a room’s brightness, even when closed. You get the daylight you crave and the privacy you want. For more light controlling options, you can use a double curtain rod to layer your windows by adding a light-blocking curtain behind more transparent panels. And of course it’s easier to do this when you get great deals on your curtains and accessories!
