  • We have blinds and draperies. During the day I pull the downstairs blinds up so they don't show beneath the valances.

  • we have blinds on all the windows and curtains.. the front room has blinds and the rest of the house has plain curtains. I open the blinds half way during the day but as for opening the window or the curtains around the house, no. it's too hot right now for either and everyone pretty much stays in the main part of the house during the day

  • Blinds on everything but our front windows but that will change when we can get some good sun blockers. We do open them up unless we need to block out sun for cooling purposes.

  • We have blinds on the main floor and curtains upstairs in the bedrooms.  Yes I always open them in the morning because I love the house flooded with sunlight.

  • I just installed new cloth Levelors that open both at the top and bottom. We live in a wooded, hilly area and are surrounded by Redwood trees, so the top openings provide a nice visual. They are cream colored in the formal areas and bedrooms and white in our main bathroom. I have topped the windows in the formal area with mahogany cornices that match our Bamboo flooring- Our house is tall and skinny (beach house, premium land) and we are in tight quarters, so ambient lighting is important-
