DEAR ABBY: "In the Dark in Texas" was wondering about the correct way to tilt blinds. Light coming in through a window should not be the deciding factor for which way the blinds close. Privacy should be of highest importance.
After years of living in apartments, I have learned the direction of a blind's slats should change depending on the location of the window.
If the window is on the ground floor, the blind should be closed slats up. Otherwise, people can see in from the floors above. This information is particularly useful in multistory neighborhoods and apartment complexes.
