curtains - slightly off-topic


OK, I don't want to actually make my own curtains, can be arsed, but what I need are curtains made of quite a thick material - so many curtains these days are thin and let too much street lights through at night. What shops sell decent curtains?

I got a decent pair not long ago from debamhams on sale in the blue cross sale. They were quite thick lined and do a good job of keeping the light out and of good quality too. It was a touch expensive but I really liked the curtains and couldn't find any others in smaller shops I liked to my size requirements and didn't fancy paying for alterations, added it up and would've cost more than the curtains I got in total. So I went for them.
Worth having a look in the highstreet stores I guess.

Ask around or look in local paper, shop window advert cards etc for curtain making people. They cost much less than you might think. Then find your ideal material in - er - a material shop. You'll get exactly what you want, at little or no extra cost (IMHE) - and they'll fit perfectly!

Just get a black out roller blind as well, then you can have the curtains you want and sleep until lunchtime :-)

Hi Group I had the same problem when I worked nights. The curtains were fairly thick but did not keep out the daylight. These curtains had plain separate backing material, I simply put black polytheen sheet in between the two. No light, less noise and kept the temperature down as well. I rescued the polytheen sheet from a builder's skip. All together now say "tight bastard" Alan

I work nights.
I have a black roller blind at my window plus a set of very dark blue curtains.
Perfect!
