Research has shown over the years that people simply sleep better in rooms that are dark. Black curtains can help shut the light out of a room and make sleeping possible, even if lights outside are bright. If you have to sleep during the day, or have a bright streetlamp outside your room, black curtains can be the most important addition to your bedroom. They are also put to good use in children’s bedrooms. If the room is dark during the day, the child may be better able to take an afternoon nap.

Black curtains can also help reduce the heat in your home during the summer months. If you keep the curtains closed during the day, it will reduce the amount of warm air from entering the room as well as sunlight that seeps through the windows.

Also keep the design of your room in mind so the curtains will go along with your walls, furniture and fixtures.

There are plenty of different sizes, designs, and styles of black curtains on the market. Black curtains can even help drown out noise that may come into your home from the outside. They can also save you on your energy costs, block out light, and take care of noise distractions.
