I ordered these for my son's room and they are great. They are one peice (not layered with other fabrics) and smooth and beautiful. Stars are shinny. Fabric is not "thermal" it is smooth, I think they say thermal because they keep in heat. They do black out light as promised. Nice curtains.
I've tried blackout shades/curtains before, but these are by far the best. The fabric drapes very nicely, without the tacky foam backing so many blackout drapes have. I've been a night nurse for 35 years, and finally- a decent day's sleep.
Not complete blackout drapes. We have a 3 layered blind (to keep out cold- they aren't blackout) with these drapes and during the day it is darker without direct light but not completely dark. Would have liked them to make the room darker. Our daughter is a short napper and we were hoping a real dark room during the day would get her to sleep longer but these drapes cut out about 50% of light during the day so we still don't know if a truly dark room would help her.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate- the beige is a soft beige with silver stars
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice. Soft, wrinkles come right out after a day or two hung. No need to iron.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not complete blackout drapes.
Note: 3-inch rod pocket, so they look a bit weak on my son's skinny rod. But great at blocking the light and open/close fairly easily (a concern for kids room where they will yank on the curtains and end up pulling the rod down). Stars are foil-material, very shiny and fun.

I have been buying & returning "blackout" curtains for a few months now...these actually block out the light like they say!!! They look very nice, I got 1 pair of Pink for my 3 & 6 year olds room (1 panel per window so we can open them during the day & let the sun in). They do not have the rubber like backing like most do, which when that material is washed will eventually fall apart, so I'm thinking that these will wash nicely. Very Happy with these. Happy Happy Happy

My husband and I ordered these curtains for our home office/ music room, which needs to be temperature controlled. The curtains are great at keeping the room cool on hot days. I am certain that they would do an equally fine job at keeping the room warm on cool days, if that's what we were looking for. I highly recommend them.

I have plain versions of these for my sons room, and finally pulled the trigger on these for my daughters room (she needed two pairs and I was being cheap about spending money on two pairs of curtains) but they are fantastic quality, and are not like some black out curtains, that have a plasticy back to them so they don't flow properly. These are incredibly soft and the stars are printed on nicely too. I was reluctant to buy them in case they were not the same manufacturer as the other ones I have, but they were. I hate buying curtains and having to return them, not to mention the blindness of buying curtains online, but these are great! The pocket ones also have loops on the back too, so I initially used the pockets but then decided to use the loops so I could hang them one loop on the other side of the curtain rail for extra coverage. They also come with tie backs which I don't think is listed!
These curtains drape beautifully and are lovely fabric. The beige are pretty good at room darkening for a light color, but I also purchased the navy which really is more of a true blackout curtain. Received compliments on all of these curtains as they are such a rich looking fabric.
I live in a RV, I ordered the Star Struck Black Out Curtains . In the Color Black . BLACK OUT 100%!!!!!! The Little Stars are so much Fun!!!! Be sure to go with the Color Black , like I did and you can be happy to hurry up why wait!!!!♥
Our next door neighbor has a light on the side of their house that is too bright through our light filtering cellular blinds. I found these whimsical but not radical design blackout curtains @ Overstock. They are high quality and drape very nicely. They are 100 inches wide, too wide for my 23 inch wide windows so I bought one pair and put one panel per window and use the matching tie backs to pull each window back to one side. Very stylish looking this way. Very pleased!
Definitely blackout.... yet soft and lightweight. Hung 63" beige panels on tension rod... no problem. Great for bedrooms to create a slight whimsical feeling. For fun I thought about Navy (so cute), but that might be too dramatic. Great option for plain blackout curtains.
