If you need to sleep during the day, you need to check out Blackout EZ Blinds by Daysleeper Products.
I work nights and was always tired and crabby because of the lack of sleep. I tried hanging blankets, pull down shades even cardboard to block out the sun so I could sleep. I am so glad I found these Black out window shades.
Now I wake up every morning rested and refreshed.
I installed them myself! All you need is a pair of scissors. They come in various sizes, even for patio doors!
Just cut to fit. They attach to your window with hook and loop tape. The fabric is 2-sided, black for inside and white faces outside to reflect the light. They also come white on white.
These blinds are great to the kid's room too! They will sleep better at naptime.
Have a Home Theater room? Try these shades, it will feel like you are at the Movies, 100% dark and no distracting light peeking through.
I can't wait until the summer months, I am sure these sun blockers will save on the airconditioning/electric bill!
