Try Some Curtains

I strongly believe that "blinds" are one of the worst things you can do to your house. You know what I'm talking about - the plastic vertical ones with a chain to pull them open. Yes, I'm talking about your condo, Mom. (I even hate roller blinds and the bamboo type of blinds, unless there are curtains or drapes over them.) They just don't look attractive. That said, try some fabric curtains. Not only will they help block out noise and sunlight, they're a lot prettier, and come in a lot more options. Not to mention they improve your decor instead of detracting from it. Martha Stewart has a well priced line of curtain rods at Home Depot.

  1. A while back I came across a post on facebook showing how a designer used simple painters dropcloths as cute trendy curtains.
