My flat in Nottingham has really large windows and I’ve been wanting to buy blackout blinds for a while now, but never got round to it.

I currently have curtains that I want to keep, as well as having black out blinds fitted. I don’t want to just have blinds as I feel the bedroom would look naked without curtains.

My flat is rented and the landlord will not pay for the blinds in Nottingham, as he is too tight, every time there is a problem with the flat he always tries and fobs you off. I can’t wait for the tenancy agreement to be up so I can move in somewhere else. I find it really difficult to sleep at night, as the room never goes dark due to strong lighting outside the apartment.

I have been looking at various window blinds in Nottingham and there are so many to choose from. They are not expensive either so I can’t understand why the landlord wont pay for them, it’s not like they cost hundreds of pounds.

The apartment is great otherwise, I love the spacious rooms and large bay windows, the flat has a really nice garden with an apple and pear tree. It’s great in the summer, but the only problem is the light in the room in the evening especially the bedroom. I think I am going to have to pay for the window blinds myself to get a goodnight kip.
