The blind guy came today (no more dust about, it’s nice outside now despite the wind) and installed blinds on 4 rooms of the house. We went for a combination of blinds, full block-out in the lounge room for bad daytime TV when sick or extremely hung over (or both) and some dual block-out and semi-transparent ones in the bedroom so we can let the light in yet still have our privacy.
Bedroom retreat, left side shows semi-blockout and the right window shows what full block-out looks like.
Detail of dual blinds (literally 2 lots of blinds/operating chains).
Lounge room 100% block-out.
