    Question blinds vs curtains in the sewing room

    Which do you prefer? I was all set to get blinds (2" white fake wood) but now I'm not sure.

    I prefer blinds. They give more options for controlling how much direct sunlight shines through the window.

    In the sewing room, definitely blinds!

    I would think that would be dependent on your room ... what works BEST for you????
    How much sunlight comes into your room? How much privacy you want in the room?

    For me ... I get very little direct sunlight in my sewing room, so when I am there, I throw open the curtains on the patio door and windows, so it can be open and bright and so that I can enjoy the view! When I am not there, they are shut to keep any outside eyes from peering in. (and that's not a problem, just a precaution!)

    I have roller shades and valances in my sewing room. Much easier to clean than blinds (which I have in some other rooms until I get "a good mind" to lose them once and for all).

    It depends on so much more that what others are using.

    I have a NNW window in my basement sewing room. The window is just above ground level and there is a fence about 5 feet from the house.

    I do not have to worry about light damage or privacy.

    I found some butter yellow curtains that a local Thrift Shop which fit the window nicely. The yellow is bright, but not too bright and makes me think of diluted sunlight. The curtains are usually open.

    I have cats that love window sills and blinds do not work for them.
