Q: I'm hoping the AT readers can help solve a friendly debate between my husband and I. :-) We have a lovely East-facing bedroom with big windows, but need some kind of light-blocking curtains to keep us from getting up at the crack of dawn (or staying awake because of the street lights). Thankfully, there is a double curtain rod already in place. So, here's the question: Are the thick, light-blocking curtains hung inside, closest to the window, or on the outside, closest to the room?I've searched thru' the Archives and found only a few comments regarding this and folks seem to do it either way. Is there even a "right" or "wrong" way?
