I live in Louisiana and also needed to cover my window over the summer. I bought these and they work perfectly, just in case this might help anyone:

u/chaosisbeautiful · 34 pointsr/howto

I've used something like this before and it really helped and adding a small fan or air purifier helped, too!

Amazon! And they are so cheap:

Norbi Willow Voile Tulle Room Window Curtain Sheer Voile Panel Drapes Curtain 39.4'' x 78.8" L (Green B)

u/tunersharkbitten · 14 pointsr/Greyhounds

one thing i would recommend, assuming there is no vertical shaft and it is just a little nook, is to put soundproofing foam on the walls and ceiling of that little alcove. make a little drape to go across the outside and get some sound deadening cloth and make a little "anti-boom" box for when there is thunder or fireworks or she just wants a nice safe quiet place. i have built a few of them for people in my neighborhood, we live close enough to disneyland and doggos FREAK THE FUCK OUT every night when they launch the fireworks. you can make a pretty nice "anti-boom" box for less than 100 dollars.

Yes, Bay area! Good guess.

Sheer curtains can be yours for only $15 on Amazon! 😛 I had to get them because it was too much sun and it was burning all my plants.

u/kilamumster · 8 pointsr/Frugal

Those halogen lamps must be super hot and eating up energy. Can they be swapped out for fixtures that can use LEDs or at least CFLs? Habitat ReStore probably has tones of boob lights, I'm trying to figure out if we can stand to leave them open (remove glass shade) to use LEDs. Ugly but efficient. I can always put them back on if we have houseguests.

Check the energy usage of your water heater and refrig, maybe your oven. Compare to current energy-efficient models. I'd be surprised if your refrig, at least, isn't worth replacing.

As /u/mrbigshot says, check the water heater. Insulate it (water heater blanket) and the hot water pipe going out (black split-foam insulation). Draining and flushing build-up can help. Build-up is like gravel insulating the heating coil, which causes it to overwork ($) and in time will damage it ($$). Be sure to check for rust, corrosion, and leaks-- 20 years is an old water heater and a leak can be catastrophic.

Our home energy inspector mentioned that newer furnaces are much more energy efficient. 20 years old for all of that sounds like a big investment is inevitable... check with your power company for rebates.

Those windows sound amazing. Hate to block the view, but I'd try thermal blocking curtains. We used them in the tropics and they drop the temp a few degrees immediately. If you buy from WalMart, you can probably try them and return them if they don't work for you.

You can also make your own: DIY version. Be careful on insulated windows, if it traps heat in the window, it can damage the seal. In the winter, reversing (shiny-side in) them may help retain warmth in the house.

If you have wind and sliders, can you cool and ventilate naturally instead of using AC? I'm thinking of growing corn or tomatoes next year on the south side of our new home, not so much for the food, just want some fast shade!

u/zebradust · 7 pointsr/InteriorDesign

I use blackout curtains in addition to my wooden blinds. They block out more light and heat (when closed of course), help with energy bills, and still come in a variety of patterns/colors (depending on where you get them). They run more pricy than regular curtains but they're definitely worth it to me. They are a bit heavier, too, so make sure you use the rod recommended on the box. I've gotten them at Walmart, but here's an Amazon page to check them out. I have navy ones but I don't think colors matter as long as they have the special backing on them for the heat.

u/ctishman · 6 pointsr/SeattleWA

Try Blackout curtains like these. As a night-shift worker, they're a lifesaver, and could probably help you.

u/Quorum_Sensing · 6 pointsr/nursing

Congratulations! All units are different, so I'll just say ask questions. Don't let yourself become a jaded judgemental asshole. You get to go home. No matter what they did to themselves, there is a human in that bed having the worst time of their life. That's punishment enough.

As to joining the under world:

Sleep hygine. Do all 3 shifts in a row. Get home before the sunlight gets on top of you and you get the dreaded second wind. Eat, drink, shower and sack out fast. Splurge on a nice bed and linens. Pack lunches and eat clean. You can and will pork out fast on night shift living on pizza and donuts.

Black out window covers
These are better than any shades or curtains. No light gets in. Meth house level coverage. I could never sleep with a mask on, so these were a must.

White noise machine There are tons of options for this. Most are some recorded loop which your brain fixates on the pattern of, and does the opposite of making you sleepy. This is truly white noise from a fan and you can adjust the volume and pitch by twisting it and adjusting the venturi's. They've been made sine the 70's and I also used them in my kids room, have seen them in doctors offices, etc. No need for ear plugs with one of these.

Deconovo Room Darkening Thermal Insulated Blackout Grommet Window Curtain for Bedroom, Black,42x84-inch,1 Panel

u/octobereighth · 4 pointsr/legaladvice

I live in a HOA that has a rule that only "white-backed curtains" may be visible in a window. I also have a fucking floodlight pointing directly into my bedroom window.

It took trying out several different brands, but we were eventually able to find curtains that block almost all of the light. It'll never be pitch black in that room, but it's much better now than before. They also make light-blocking curtains that have thermal insulation. Sleep like the dead has a list of their top picks. I'm pretty sure these are the ones we ended up with in the end, but again we tried out a bunch of different ones so I could be wrong.

Good luck!

  4. Butterflies purchased on our honeymoon in Key West at

  5. Baby Unisex Dragon Mobile for Crib Room Decor Nursery Baby Shower Gift

    Edit: just realized you can’t even see the dresser so I’ll add a 6

Here you go! They come in more colors too!

u/derrick81787 · 3 pointsr/preppers

There's propane and/or kerosene heaters. Just be sure to crack a nearby window just in case.

Warm clothes, blankets, and sleeping bags will do alright. It would have to be very cold for a long time before you were really in danger of freezing.

Lighting a few candles in a small bedroom will keep you warmer than you would think.

If you are asking then I'm assuming that you probably don't have one of these, but a wood stove is great. If all you have is a fireplace, it will heat the area directly in front of it but not much more. Just hang out in front of the fireplace for a few days.

No matter what you do, you want to cover up the doors and windows with a heavy blanket or curtain or something. In fact, in general it is good to have some thermal curtains like these (many different brands out there) on all your windows. We added some this year, and it has made a huge difference in our gas bill.

u/sethgoose · 3 pointsr/hometheater

I got these from another recommendation either here or AVSForums and couldn’t be happier. Previously had some from Target and these blew them away. I have a double window close to my screen and these block pretty much all light. Not showing on sale on the exact listing I previously purchased on, but sure you could find them through another search.

Best Home Fashion Thermal Insulated Blackout Curtains - Back Tab/ Rod Pocket - Black - 52"W x 84"L - (Set of 2 Panels)

u/frozenottsel · 3 pointsr/AnimeFigures

Direct sunlight will probably fade the paint over time.

Putting them in a spot out of direct sunlight and/or using some sheer curtains will be a big help to preventing any major sunlight related fading.

u/weisshaupt · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

I’m on break from my night shift job right now so I’ll share some quick ideas!

A lot of folks here have recommended melatonin as a natural sleep aid. I take 6 mg, it takes about half an hour to kick in. It helps me fall asleep but doesn’t necessarily help me stay asleep. Some people have bad reactions to it (grogginess, weird dreams) so be aware of that.

In terms of sleep quality, blackout curtains are a necessity. You could also try these panels that velcro around the window frame to stop light peeking through the edges. A white noise machine can help filter out annoying daytime sounds; I just use a free app on my phone.

As for the gym, do you get a scheduled break/lunch hour at your job? Maybe you could look into 24 hour gyms that might better fit your schedule? That wasn’t a possibility for me, and eventually I just accepted I wasn’t going to make it to the gym on days I had to work. I started looking into workouts I could complete at home — some bodyweight fitness, a lot of kettlebells (which I still love). Eventually I went all in and started piecing together a home gym, though I get this isn’t an option for everyone.

Hang in there!

u/thenaturalo7 · 3 pointsr/firstworldproblems

I have the same problem. Once the sun comes up, and the light enters my windows I can't stay asleep. Then I bought black out curtains. They block out almost all light making your bedroom pitch black regardless of the time of day and are worth every penny. Now, my only problem is when I'm on vacation and the hotel I'm staying at doesn't have them.

u/sixam · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

We bought these from Amazon. Absolutely no light gets through them. The only light in the room comes from around the edges where they aren't flush against the walls.

u/sk00ter21 · 2 pointsr/hometheater

I second those. I also got these recently, which I like even better. The darker colors block out everything.

u/LeftItACode · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Sure! I will say they were out of stock 3 different times and I encourage you to order them sooner than later. We bought double curtain rods to put a sheet curtain behind them though.

Deconovo Room Darkening Thermal Insulated Blackout Grommet Window Curtain for Living Room, Black,42x63-inch,1 Panel

These are wonderful curtains they’re highly rated, down side is they sell them 1 curtain, but price point is very affordable

u/incompetentdesigner · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Came in to say this. I've been looking for thick blackout curtains on a small budget lately and the best I've been able to come up with are liners like the ones above. You can find them on Amazon as well. It's even better than having a black/dark curtain because it will absorb even less heat from the sun as white will bounce back a LOT of IR light.

Edit: There are also curtain rods that come with two rails, to hang sheer curtains between the window and the thicker curtains. You can use that to have two sets. White curtains and the whatever other color you want.

Insulated curtains maybe? I have something similar to these. They work pretty well keeping the winter cold out against out sliding glass door.

u/antilumin · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

Here you go

Edit: you would need a rod too, which comes with mounting hardware, but you also need to measure your windows to get the right size.

u/Purpalilylady · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Student, not designer! Just some of my thoughts!

First thing's first, just give it a good cleaning. Move everything and organize. Right now there's tons of clutter and trash. It will be easier to move things around once the floor and all the surfaces are clean.

My next recommendation is to get some curtains they will add visual weight to your windows and give the room a sense of balance. They don't have to be heavy or thick just to bring you eye around the wall and make it feel more complete. I think something similar to this might be nice and inexpensive.

On the mirrors, they are not helping much where they are. Being so close to the left side draws your eye and leaves it there without something to balance on the right. Those I would play around with. Maybe try turning them sideways and hanging them over the bed, or separating them and putting one on either side. Also, center your bed between the windows.

From a design perspective I would move your dresser to be adjacent to your bed. Again, achieving a sense of balance. You have a large room, maybe get a fun chair or a larger rug to help you take up some of the negative space. You can find good pieces of furniture at thrift stores/garage sales that are pretty inexpensive, and of good quality.

I think what you have done with the lighting and the color is a very good interpretation of your inspiration pictures. Your room will always benefit from personal and unique art!

Anyway those are just somethings that stand out. Good luck with your room!

No worries, I know what that’s like!

Also, I was recently helping a client in a very similar situation and from a bit of online research I found these curtains to be rated quite highly for acoustics. Can’t vouch for them personally yet, but worth a look and fairly cheap.

I just bought some for my own bedroom, these specifically: and have IKEA roller shades:

OMG. It's 7pm and the sun is beaming directly in to my master bedroom but the room is pitch black with both of these closed. It's glorious. I hung the curtains and immediately took a nap in broad daylight.

I have these...blocks out all light except on the sides like nsfw_ever was saying...and helps insulate your windows..

u/Unspoken · 1 pointr/InteriorDesign

Would something like this or this work? I do not need blackout curtains though because all of the houses around here have rolladens. So if there were something cheaper it would be fine.

u/TheSlimOne · 1 pointr/homelab

I mean, It does say "Thermal Insulated".. For 9 bucks it seems to work well :)

u/Pertinaxed · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Vitamin D helps to govern the circadian rhythm by signalling to the body that it's morning, so make sure you're taking it as early in the day as you possibly can. I take it with breakfast. To anyone supplementing with D3, I would also recommend taking supplemental vitamin K2.

Once I got into my early twenties I also lost my ability to sleep in late, and it pissed me off to no end. The eventual solution was combining blackout curtains with an eye mask. Now that the ambient morning light in my room has been dramatically reduced, I can sleep in again without any problems.

Do you exercise? I had terrible insomnia, depression, anxiety and fucked around with nootropics, antidepressants and therapy for a year. Then I started going to the gym for a 30-40 minute 600 calorie aerobic burn, twice a day every day, and it all cleared up in a matter of weeks. Not only do I sleep more soundly, but I also require less sleep than I did before.

The downsides? Nothing surprising: it's time-consuming, physically painful, and aesthetically repulsive (because you spend time in gyms). But after the first few weeks it becomes a routine, and even with all this, the benefits so dramatically outweigh the costs that I can't see myself ever stopping.

I'm not saying this will necessarily be the solution for you but if you haven't tried it yet, please make sure you do. I feel like a fucking moron for not figuring it out sooner. Part of the reason I stayed away from aerobics is that I was stuck on the Paleo bandwagon, and bought wholesale into the idea "chronic cardio" necessarily leads to "overtraining." Getting over that prejudice, and eating more carbs to support my training was the best thing I ever did for my health.

u/throwthrowthrowfuck · 1 pointr/DIY

So my friend and I are moving into our first apartment together and my first apartment outside of college EVER! It's super exciting but also nerve wracking! We found an awesome temporary space. The only issue is that my friends room and my room would share a wall with a door in between. I wouldn't use this door to go in and out of the apartment rooms because it'll cross through my friends room and also because I have my own separate door into the hallway I can use. My friends room technically has 3 doorways but two don't have actual doors in them. She doesn't mind because she'll just put curtains in.

I, on the other hand, do mind that although my room is fully enclosed by two doors, the one that is shared with my friends room has gaps in it and doesn't touch the floor totally. I get anxious thinking about sound pouring through which I know will happen regardless because the walls are thin. Also because I have a boyfriend and my friend is 100% okay with him spending time and we're not going to awkwardly fuck while she's in the other room if we can help it but I do like talking to him into the night and I just want to be a respectful roomate.

How can I close the gaps in the door and sound proof it more. Right now my thoughts are to put towels into the gaps, maybe a sound proofing curtain like the one in the link below and I could also put a tiny dresser in front of the door to just block it more?

Again, I don't need this door because I have my own separate door that lead into the hallway and not to my friends room directly. I hope this makes sense!

We are subletting this place and my guy is cool with us putting doors in for my friends room but I obviously felt weird asking if I could replace his door. That's way to over the top. Any other ideas on what I can do?

Here's a pic of the door:

Sorry for the shit picture but essentially the pic of of my friends room and that red door leads to my room as well. Again I won't use it because there is a separate door in my room that leads to the main hallway. You can just see those gaps though and I tested out the noise and you can easily hear what one another is doing. Thoughts? Apologies in advance if this is confusing.

u/OkamiRyu · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Blackout Curtains for when you have to sleep during the day. Trust me they work amazingly! And in plenty of colors so you can pick what goes with your room...or doesn't!

you're a big girl now!

u/lyridsreign · 1 pointr/AskMen


Don't delay. The second you have money get those damn things. If you have to skip a meal to afford them. Do it. I spent the first two weeks of my job without them and was miserable. I would go to bed late and wake up throughout the day non damn stop. The first day I hung them up and slept, I felt so refreshed. They are worth every penny. Get these and a rod to hang them up. Then tape them to the sides so no light can slip through. After that get yourself an alarm to wake you up. Your eyes rely on light to fully wake you. So either get a smart lightbulb that turns on when you wake up or get a lamp that you can turn on easily.

You get off at 6 which is perfect. Go to sleep right when you get home and shoot to wake up at 4 pm. This gives you ample time to run errands and be there for your partner of they work day shift. On your off days you don't have to follow your sleep schedule strictly but find hobbies you can do that won't wake everyone up while also keeping you awake for a good bit of the night.

The biggest hurdle for you is going to be morning activities. Early appointments or social gatherings will be rough. But take power naps when you can and invest in energy drinks or coffee if you are going to be up for a while.

Night shift is great but you need to make adjustments. When it comes to the dating scene, he open and honest about your work schedule. Depending on your area, you might not have to worry too much but that all depends.

Last but not least, if you start a family get off night shift. This shift is not designed for families. I have seen and heard stories about guys on this shift destroying their marriage/getting distant with their kids because they were too stubborn to admit this shift isn't designed for the family man. If you are worried about a paycut talk with your supervisor. At my work you just lose your shift premium but can still keep your seniority. It could be different. But docking your pay to keep your family is worth it in my opinion.

u/jaimystery · 1 pointr/DIY

A cheap solution:

Buy six Command hooks - the sturdier variety. Buy a thicker dowel rod and either sand or paint it to make it smooth. Buy tab top black out panel.

Use a level and put three hooks on either side of the door close together but you want to put 1 up - 1 down - 1 up. You'll probably have to finagle putting on the curtain with threading it on the hooks. (The 2 up 1 down hook assembly should help keep your dowel in place as you move the curtain).

It would actually be easier if you used two panels (or take 1 longer panel and split it - a cheaper option).

Another solution would be buying foam core (comes in 4x8ft panels about $15), cutting it to size and just sliding it back and forth. If you want fancy it up - get a cheap twin size duvet cover & use as envelope for the foam.

u/imawitchbitch · 1 pointr/DesignMyRoom

You can get blackout curtains in different colors. You can also make your own by attaching something like THIS to the back.

Right now those curtains are such a heavy block of dark color in an otherwise light room.

Congratulations, how exciting to live on your own!

I would recommend black out curtains, unless you don't have a problem sleeping with light. I just bought some myself as they're multi-purpose.

  1. They keep the sun out....seriously like 98% of it. Which is nice if it's hot or you're trying to sleep.

  2. They help increase energy efficiency by keeping the cold air out.

    I have a ton of other ideas as to things you should have, if you're interested!

You're a big girl now!

These are very useful for someone who needs to sleep during the day. They're also good for keeping the heat in/out of your apartment which can help on heating bills. If you get them, make sure to choose the right size and style.

A cheaper option would be a sleep mask set, but that doesn't seem to fit in the 'for my apartment' theme and some people aren't comfortable with them.

Yo! I totally get what you're saying, I live in an apartment complex that's plagued with young children [I don't hate children only find it annoying because i record YouTube videos and need the environment to be quiet]

Try these out:

  • Soundproofing - For my windows I bought an Acoustic Curtain (Soundproof) $22 CAD [Really good to block noisy children screams, cars and motor bikes]
  • Mic - I use a Blue Snowball Mic [May not be as sensitive as your Blue Yeti] but I made a DIY Soundbox [I found this video that uses the Blue Yeti so you can compare it to yours]
  • Technique - you can be good with your technique but if you're in an loud environment it really won't work not unless you have a really expensive mic that blocks noise like the senheisser mk series.
  • Post Editing/editing software - You can always edit out the noise profile from your videos.
    • I use VoiceMeeter Banana when im recording to enchance my audio its like a preamp or interface for your mic if you don't already have one. Its FREE however, you can always donate or something.
    • HOW TO: Use & Setup VoiceMeeter Banana - 10mins Video, he's straight to the point
    • HOW TO : Remove Noise in post - 5mins Video, quick and easy [keep in mind that he's using a BLUE Snowball Mic and not a Blue Yeti but i'm assuming this would work too?]

      Sorry for the long post! I hope you got something out of this long reply!

      Also, if any of you has any suggestions for better or and better alternative please let me know!

      Audio Proof: To prove that this actually works, you can go to my reddit profile and check my youtube link there and you can decide whether my audio is good enough for you.

Is that your tv reflecting off the window?

There must be a dog/cat/raccoon/whatever triggering the motion detection. Maybe brushing up against the tire swing and setting it in motion which then turns on the motion-light sensor by your window.

I’d get a blackout curtain like this one.

Blackout curtains are even noted for thermal protection.
