Article Summary


To make your room pitch black during the day, tape foil over your windows to block sunlight. Then, close your blinds or curtains over the foil to get rid of any light that’s still coming through. You could also purchase blackout curtains from a home improvement store, which are thick curtains with a lining designed to keep out all light. Once you’ve stopped light coming through your window, remember to turn off lights in other parts of the house, since light could squeeze through a crack in your bedroom door. Additionally, place a rolled-up blanket at the bottom of your bedroom door to prevent any daylight from coming through the crack at the bottom. Remember to unplug unused electronic devices so they don’t light up in your room. For tips on how to sew your own blackout curtains, keep reading!
