nice quality, looks great. doesn't block as much light as I'd hoped; light comes around from all edges and even some through the actual curtain. I hung very high above the top of window, and oversized around the edges. Am a night worker, day sleeper, so will likely also need one of those roll-up black shades if I really want it dark.
I got these drapes and sent them back. from the pictures I thought I could make them work, but could not. My issues were not with the drapes themselves, but with the inadequate description on the site. Perhaps O.CO requires it's customers to be expert before shopping. There was one photo of the center part of the curtain. No photo of the tabs, none of the back, and no enlargement of the color selection. The package arrived quickly enough. I just would have liked a better description and better pictures before I bought them. I ended up sending them back. O.CO charged me a $** return fee. While I am sure O.CO has zillions of happy customers, I will not be one of them. I went to **** and found exactly what I was looking for for considerably less money than I would have spent at O.Co So all I can say is O.Co is not for me. I will shop elsewhere

Do they keep the light out? Yup! Do they keep the cold wind out? Yup! But are they sorta ugly? Yup. I'm used to natural fibers so the shiny look weirds me out but all in all I am happy with my purchase (I needed 12!) and the price. Thanks Overstock! I couldn't find these anywhere else.
the fabric does block out all the light, which i really need with my too-close neighbors that leave the lights on all night. but... the fabric is the most 70's matte polyester i've ever seen. i thought they would look a little more like taffeta, jaquard, or silk, but no. i ordered the gray, hoping for more of a silvery look, but it's darker than the swatch and so ugly and flat. i hope i can send them back.
These drapes really block the light and insulate against cold air leakage around doors and windows. They hang nicely and look crisp (after you iron them). I ordered several sets for several windows and doors. But one of the panels, right out of the package, had a round, oily stain about 2" in diameter. It would not come out with any kind of spot remover I tried. Fortunately, I was able to position it in the folds where it doesn't show very much, but the company really should watch their quality control.
These curtains are terrific...The curtains have exquisite noise and light blocking properties. They are a nice midweight. They hang nicely. I purchased them because my summer drapes are lightweight, and installed them to mitigate the bitter cold of this winter in a mountain state. What a marvelous comfort level,now: both rooms in which I hung them have grown noticeably warmer. I used a set for each window with a center panel that contrasts and allows in light...when it is not bitter cold, and when i want the room lighter, I just part the insulated drapes (which look to be just very pretty and expensive looking "regular" drapery) more widely to showcase the contrasting panel. They look very lovely this way.
The black out drapes I received certainly keep the sun out of my great room. My back yard faces west and the sun blasts through the house in the afternoon. These drapes are a good solution. It would have been nice to know the measurement of the tabs so I could determine if the length would be correct. Also, each drape was a slightly different length. I am planning on buying a few more panels for the bedrooms.

These drapes add a lot of style, as well as function; they block out almost all the light for day sleepers. The fabric is outstanding and hangs beautifully!

These drapes are very soft and hang nicely. Not stiff like some other blackout drapes I have gotten. They are machine wash which is great since they are at my patio door. They do an excellent job of keeping the light and especially heat from pouring in the sliding glass door. Shipped and arrived very promptly. Didn't realize the tie backs came with them - they are wide and nice. Also got a ceiling mount rod and it is very nice and was easy to install. Very satisfied with a very professional look.
One star bc they aren't as bad looking as other reviewers; just simple, nice feel. HOWEVER, they DO NOT block cold air... not at all. Not even a little. I have a small room with a glass wall out to a balcony; it's been understandably cold in here. But these didn't make even the slightest dent in the temperature. I was hoping for a rise of only a few degrees at worst. Nothing. Bupkis! Lame... also, they DO NOT block enough light to call them blackout. I would call them dimmer curtains. I didn't need them for this purpose, but I'm already complaining, so I may as well be as informative as possible. So there you have it. 1 star. Boo! NOTE: Props to Overstock on shipping. Fast and cheap..., hmm, just like me, I guess.
I just recieved these curtains in maroon and they are beautiful. The fabric is thick and blocks out quiet a bit of light. I didn't realize it had tabs up top (which I'm not a fan off), but they fold over on each other when you pull the curtains back and it looks nice. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
Our offices were recently moved to a space with old large windows (single paned) that is known for being cold and drafty... I found these on Overstock... the beige was a perfect match for the instiutional color our walls are. These curtains made all the difference...the space looks great... it stays warm as the weather cools down. I am curious if they will help keep the room cool when the sun streams in come summer. The fabric has a great feel to it. I am not a big fan of tab-tops, but they were considerably less expensive - so I went for it.
We bought the turquoise color and they are just beautiful. I wouldn't say they are very turquoise, but more a blue color. We have all browns in our living room and it just livens up the room! Keeps the sun out great! :) I would highly recommend!
