Curtains Closed, Curtains Open?

:icon3wyl:
3wyl Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Simply put, when you go to bed, do you like to keep your curtains closed or your curtains open?

Or blinds, if that is what you have. Maybe you have no curtains? If so, how does that work for you?

My roommate likes to keep the curtains closed. I suppose it has the advantage that, at night, no one can peep in on us, but I hate waking up to darkness. I don't mind if it's nature's darkness, but the darkness created by our curtains is one that is pretty suffocating.

At home, I like to keep my curtains open all the time. Fuck anyone who looks in. :dummy:

You? :la:

I keep them closed, often even during the day. I'm a bit paranoid about my privacy. :paranoid: I also don't like waking up in darkness however, but these days the curtains don't make much difference in that anyway. :hmm:

It is too dark. I don't mind it in the evening, gives me opportunity to light candles and stuff, but I hate it in the morning. I already have so much trouble getting out of bed in time and darkness makes it worse. I should have one of those daylight alarm clock things. :dummy:

Soon? :noes:

it irritates me when curtains are open, if I wanted to be outside I'd go there :shrug: lol unless I had a skylight in my room, then I'd keep that open all night and gaze at the stars!

Closed. I'd love to wake up to natural light, but at the same time I can't sleep with light from the streets streaming in. :/

I hate any sort of light coming in, and there's a floodlight that shines right into my apartment, so closed blinds.

Well I live on a property and I doubt there'd be any peeping toms out here. :meow: So the only faces I'd see is the PeeWee that pecks at his own reflection or maybe a rogue cow that found its way into the yard. :D haha Curtains Open!!

In my room i closed the blinds and drape the curtain, even though you can't see in my room? i'm not sure why i just cant handle the thought of looking out and seeing a face (too many horror movies), but when i sleep in the living room i think "fuck it" and leave it open.

That's quite intriguing, though. You'd think it was the other way around there. :nod:

Closed. I have a really hard time sleeping in a room with the curtains/blinds open. Just feels too vulnerable.

I like to keep the curtain closed with the window open, but only when it's cold outside.

I want the room completely dark when I go to bed. Any hint of light and I will get up like a raving lunatic to block it because I sleep better when it's dark.

blinds must be closed. My mind is very imaginative and i'm as well afraid of the dark, thus i need someone with me, my dogs or someone from my family, with me when i'm outside, otherwise my mind will drive me to insanity.

Until recently I strung an old dressing gown over my window to keep out the light. Then the tag tore so I gave up and resort to keeping my duvet over my head

Always closed. I NEED complete darkness to sleep. My eyes are so sensitive that even the tiniest speck of light bothers me like crazy. I often sleep with my eyes open (via lucid dreaming) so I've got to block out light to avoid seeing objects from the room within my dreams, and the temptation to interact with them.

My strategy is heavy curtains and little pieces of electrical tape on any battery charger or whatever is in the room. No alarm clock light either. The only accepted light is the fire alarm battery light outside the bedroom door.

The lack of light however, annoys the hell out of my partner whose night vision is no where near as good. :XD:

Wow.. that's intense. :O

I'm half blind, so I don't mind the light, as such, but.. yeah, I get what you mean there. :O

That's pretty strong. o.O

Aww...

But your partner makes the sacrifice anyway? :la:

Sorry to hear about your partial blindness. :(

Yeah my eyes are light grey/green so they take in UV super easy. Sunny days I can barely navigate basic shapes (doors, people) without sunglasses - even with them I still get headaches. :/

My partner's okay with the darkness as long as he's prepared. Sometimes we keep glow sticks about so he can crack one and carry with for the night (and tuck away for sleep). Though occasionally he leaves the hallway light on for a bio break, so I inevitably wake up and turn it off for him. :)

Brown is one of my fav colors! I wonder how it'd feel with such dark irises. Nearly everyone in my family had brown eyes, save for my father with blue. I guess I was the freak. :)

Glad you found it interesting. Cheers.^^

It is yeah. I'm all for nature colors. Much of my clothing is warm brown, green and occasional black/greys (great with my skin tone, and zodiac apparently).

I guess 'cause you're used to yours, you feel it's boring - but for me it'd be a new experience. I'd def trade my light eyes for a while just to experience some pain-free sunny days with vibrant colors. :D

Hmm..

I'd gladly do the trade there, except I'm half blind, but still. :D
