I have beautiful white curtains in the living room but it is oh so bright when the sun is shining in. Can I make the room darker without adding another set of curtains and or blinds.

    Why not put a layer of plastic film on the glass in a frosted finish?

      OMGoodness! I just replied to another member with the exact same thought. Did not see your suggestion until now. Thanks. I was thinking about doing half the window so I can still see out.

    We‘d love to see a photo. The answer partly depends on your windows and how the curtains are arranged, as in tiebacks or whatever.

      Thank you very much. My walls are already pretty dark as blue. Time to really change the colour as way too much blue. LOL. Maybe I shall put some window film on half the window so I can still see out. Do you think that could work?

    Apply Low-E coating to the windows. You'll save on heat and cooling, too!

    Great minds think alike LOL! Half the window sounds perfect!!!!

    Or curtains from the half window down (to the floor.). Pure white, sheerer than what you’ve got. I’m not a window film fan myself.

    You can add shades of some kind behind your curtains.
