Street light shines directly into top floor window

The street light shines directly into my bedroom window, even blackout blinds cannot stop the light. The room is so bright all night even eye masks do not work. It would be great if the bulb could be changed to a less bright colour to limit the glare.

  • Sorry to hear of this issue, we are happy to have a look into this one. Could I ask if its the front or the rear of the lantern causing the issue ? Due to the road we have specific requirements we have to adhere to but if its the rear we can look to shield it for you
