How Do Blackout Curtains Work
It’s dark outside, and you want to keep the lights off in your room so you can get some sleep. What do you do? You might try to cover up the light with a curtain, but what if the curtains are too heavy or too bright? Or what if someone accidentally opens the curtain while you’re sleeping and lets all the light in?
Blackout curtains are a great solution for people who want to keep the lights off but want to see what’s happening in their room. They work by blocking out all of the light from outside so you can sleep. Blackout curtains come in different sizes and shapes, so they can fit almost any window.
All you need to do is measure your window and buy blackout curtains that fit those measurements.
- First, use blackout curtains to ensure that your windows are closed and locked. Then, open each window about two inches so that air can flow freely through the windows.
- Next, put one end of each blackout curtain over one of your open windows, ensuring that it covers both sides of your window evenly. Then close each window until it clicks into place.
- Finally, ensure all your curtains are the same length, and tie them together at the top with a simple knot.
Blackout curtains can be used in any room in your house. They’re especially good for bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen windows.
They can also be used to block out light while you’re sleeping or working on your computer.
If you want to make blackout curtains yourself, there are a few simple steps that you need to follow.
- First, measure the width and height of your window openings.
- Next, find a curtain material that matches your window size and style. You can buy pre-made blackout curtains or sew them yourself using blackout fabric tape or Velcro.
- Finally, make sure to install security lights on either side of your open windows so that people outside don’t see in when it’s dark outside.
