|Valances add additional sun blocking|
For individuals who must, or choose to, sleep while the sun is shining, curtains that stop the sunlight are an essential part of their good nights. Even the occasional late early morning sleep-in seems to be better with a good blackout curtain. If you are making your own drapes, adding the blackout features that best suit your needs is not difficult. First choose what you need, and make your curtains accordingly.
