There was once a time back in Britain where a ‘blackout’ was mandatory. Residents were forced to hang thick dark curtains over their windows at night so that no light could escape.
Of course, during those times some people grew to like the peace that came from this and some people still black out their windows even today. However, currently this is being done with a new twist and it is fantastic. These dark drapes now are being used to block out light and UV rays. This helps them to even trap heat in your home during cold months.
That being said you could even save a little money on heating costs. They now come in these really interesting cut-out designs that are interesting because they literally turn your window into a city skyline. Check out the best ones I have found below. I am really considering adding a few of these to my room, isn’t this fantastic?!
