I live in a flat and have a big bay window. The curtains I have are terrible, they're abit seethrough. Because of this I tend to keep the curtains shut when it gets dark and have a habit of leaving them closed when I'm in during the day.
I wondered if there is anything I can buy to block out the lower half of the windows? Maybe like those chinese screens people use to get dressed behind? That would be great as then I can have the curtains open but not feel like people can peer through the curtains and I won't be bothered about leaving the curtains open.
I could get some backing for the curtains but I've been told this will cost at least £50 and as I'm only renting the flat from a private landlord, I can't justify the cost.
