lindsay.n.harman:We ordered black out curtains from www.babybedding.com and they are really cute. We chose a chevron orange and white print, and they have all colors, patterns, and designs available. You have the ability to design them yourself.
This is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks! I just ordered the taupe chevron with the lining. :)
Thanks everyone for the ideas!
They won't make our room totally dark, because we have a stationary window at the peak of the roof that doesn't have a curtain, but hopefully it will help soften the light dramatically in the room.
TheyCalledHerKate:We did blackout because the window is really huge. Ours are from RH Baby amp; Child. They are white/off white and they look really nice in the room. nbsp;I guess they are "boring" in the sense that they are just off white, but they are a very heavy, nice quality fabric and we put them high above the window to create even more of an illusion that the window is even larger. I am not really into busy curtains though...so I may not be the right person to talk to. One option is to buy whatever curtains you want and then put a blackout panel behind them.
I have black out blinds in every room.
Love them. That way curtains are not limited.
wcvsb3b5:We have blinds and valences. The windows aren't anywhere near where LO will be so I'm not worried about the blinds being a hazard.
That's what we have too. If it turns out to be a problem, we'll reevaluate.
JohnsonShmonson:I found cute pink black out curtains in the baby section at Ross for super cheap. I was quite pleased with my find.
elmoali:Just an FYI - you can buy black out liners (we got ours from Target) and hang a double curtain rod so that you can use both the cute curtains and the blackouts :)
This is what we did too. Well, will do once I finish the "pretty" curtains I am sewing.
watermelon mom:Never had them for DS. He sleeps just fine in the afternoons without. I wouldn't want to condition them to need darkness top sleep.
The great thing is that you don't have to condition them any one way. You can tie the curtains back during the day if darkness to sleep is an issue.
