Hello AT,

This bedroom window gets an insane amount of morning sunlight.

What type of curtains work best on a ceiling mounted rod - tab top or clips?

Also, does anyone have an affordable source for curtains that block light?

We're looking at Pottery Barn b/c they are on sale, but we're not sure about the fabric quality and the light filtering...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

Shade Store with blackout fabric is a little too $$$.

We don't need a cave, but we also don't want to wear sunglasses in bed.

(P.S. - apartment issue blinds "cannot" be removed, ceiling is cement and ceiling mount hardware appears to involve the fewest number of drilled holes, span is too long for tension rod but height is standard 84".)

Thanks! Cathy
