Neutral Bedroom with Black Curtains

Use blackout curtains.

Natural light is lovely for creating a warm, inviting environment, but when you're ready for some shut-eye, those rays need to be controlled, says Flanigan. In addition to framing window openings with color and texture, drapery allows you to have direct control over your lighting experience. Invest in high-quality drapery and line your panels with blackout material. This ensures you get sleep at any hour of the day while also protecting your furniture, rugs and art from damaging UV rays.
