Hello there. In my bedroom, I have one window that has venetian blinds and one window that has nothing. The window that has nothing faces the sunset and tends to get hot in the afternoons. Plus, as the sun goes down, it shines on my figures. The window that has the blinds, still gets sunlight shinning through the blinds even when the blinds are in their closed position. We get "lines". So my question is which is better? Blinds, or curtains? I wish to darken and cool my bedroom and protect my figures. One thing that's hesitating me about curtains is my cat. I have no doubt she will climb on them and I'm not sure how to keep her off. What do you think?
