    Following on from the thread about when you turn your lights on.

    Do you close your curtains when you turn your light on?
    and do you close them first or turn the light on first?

    I generally close the curtains before I turn the light on, the exeption being in the kitchen where I dont close the curtains at all and I dont even have curtains on the bathroom window, it is frosted glass.

    Light goes on but the blinds are only shut when its really dark outside. The conifer trees give us a certain amount of privacy anyway.

    Unless its really hot or cold and they stay drawn until the room is occupied.

    I close mine generally after the light is turned on, but I have voiles at the front. I'd just feel like I was fumbling about unnecessarily otherwise

    We have blinds, voiles and curtains. Previously we lived in a maisonette so were overlooked by no one although I still shut the kitchen blind at night (as people could see in when they walked past the front) and our bedroom curtains, much to hubby's amusement. Now we're in a house, which came with roller blinds, I just close the blinds but we have voiles up so no one can see in. Generally the living room blind stays down when we're out as it's a big window, we have a light on a security timer so if the blind isn't down it's glaringly obvious if we're not in, but also so that the dog doesn't get wound up by people (or the neighbourhood kids) coming to the door, etc. Our curtains are purely for decoration.
