  • I prefer both. I like the look of curtains, and the light and privacy control of blinds, plus having both helps on air conditioning and heating bills. The blinds keep the curtains from sun damage as well.

  • I prefer both, but We can't put curtains up in Our house..so We just use the crappy blinds it has (We rent).

  • The house came with the blinds that slide left and right, not up and down, so I have those. In the living room I have sheer curtains on the sides of the windows for decorations. Upstairs I have the blinds and blackout curtains because there is a streetlamp right outside my window. In my Ds room there is a curtain also. In the summer a big tree blocks the back light from getting to his room, but in the winter the light shines through

  • Both. It will block out more light and save on heating and cooling costs.

  • both. We have curtains and blinds in the bedrooms. The heavier ones in my sons room to block out the son. Downstairs we have the ones that slide from left to right as well over our back door.

  • We have both. The blinds are for privacy while still letting in light & the curtains are darker & heavier for insulation against heat loss in the winter & to keep the heat out in the summer.
