The lack of window treatment/drapery in a bedroom is the best recipe for a bad sleep. Bedrooms should be as close to black out as possible for the best sleep. The more light outdoors, the heavier the drapery treatment should be. Skylights are the absolute worst when positioned in a bedroom.

fupge2013, I do not like draperies (nobody washes them frequently enough for allergic people), and I actually love waking up more naturally with the light of day. No draperies for me in the bedroom!

Some of us also need enough space for at least two dog beds! ;)
