Before I invest any more money into window coverings, I'd like to get some opinions. What keeps the early morning sunlight out the best: shades or blinds. My bedroom faces due east, so I get ALOT of early morning sunshine.

I know there are several options, and options within these options. But overall, What Do You Feel is the Best Option to Keep My Bedroom Dark so I can sleep in longer (and avoid all the other home repairs!). The most cost effective the better, too!

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Shades are solid, blinds have louvers. Therefore, shades give better darkness. Also, dark shades allow less light penetration than light shades.

Cool Matinee Shades

I feel that the best way to keep out unwanted sunlight is Room-Darkening Matinee Cellular Shades. They can block out as much as 97% of natural light.

They are affordable and come with a variety of styles including cordless and duo-fold options.

Please feel free to stop by for more information on these Matinee shades. I think this may be just what you are looking for!

Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions,
