Not dark enough!  I would love to have it pitch black but I don’t have any curtains at the moment.  I think I might need to look into those!  Also DH needs to stop leaving his laptop open and recording DVD’s in the corner of the room.

Ugh not dark enough.  I have to sleep with an eye mask on.  At first FI teased me but then he quickly realized I wouldn’t be able to sleep and would in turn keep him up all night so he likes it now.

I feel bad because my SO is one of those people who likes pitch black, but I always like having the bathroom light on so I’m not tripping around in the dark if I have to get up in the middle of the night. We’ve also been having a lot of problems with house centipedes and they are nocturnal, so if you keep a few lights on at night, it keeps them from coming out.

Pitch black! We have a black out roller blind to cover the window and black curtains hanging at the sides to cover the peek-a-boo light coming in from the sides!!!

it’s about pitchblack with a little moonlight getting in the windows.  I can sleep with all the lights on (and sometimes prefer to if I’m alone LoL) but FI likes it all dark.

Pitch black.  I keep it that way with a black sheet over the window because I work overnights.

Really dark, it helps us sleep. We even painted the walls a darker color.

My dream is a pitch black room with white noise..I don’t think I’d ever wake up 😉

Ours is fairly dark, but we turn a light post lamp to light the front house which brings in some light and if the moon is really bright, the whole room glows a cool blue lunar color! I should probably invest in some black out curtains !

I used to be able to sleep with light in the room but lately I can’t stand it. We have vertical blinds (horrible, awful builder blinds what I have been trying to replace) and they always let some light in. I just bury my face between the pillows so I can sleep.

As dark as possible.  I need to get one of those curtains!

I “complained” to my FI that the water cooler’s red, yellow and blue light lights up the room like it’s daytime!  We have macktack on the window to keep it super dark but that light defeats the purpose! Then we have the fan lights, and the “heater” lights that tells us what temperature the room is at. We have a Christmas tree in the room without the tree.

I wish I didn’t have to put the blanket over my head. It gets kind of hot under there. And I like to breathe…

SIGH – Anyways, he is going to put black electrical tape over the lights, tonight.

NOT pitch black!  I seem to be one of the few.  SO likes blackout curtains, but I prefer a little light to help me wake up in the morning.  It’s always easier for me to wake up when it’s not 100% dark in a room.
