I fluffed these drapes in the dryer for a few minutes....to remove the wrinkles before hanging them. They went up as easy as can be. They look fabulous in my living room and look exactly as pictured on the website. These drapes look much more expensive than what they cost. They are bold...but not too bold - they make a statement.
They look gorgeous on the website picture, but when they arrived they looked like cheap hotel curtains. They are thick enough to block out light, but definitely not the look I was going for. The color was off - I ordered the blue ones. Think about a cheap hotel you've been in and the plastic rod to open and close the curtains? That's where these belong.
I was hesitant to purchase these as I am always in a beige world. always going for the safe colors. they are perfect, they are in my formal living room. they look great with my antiques. I are no considered room darkening, but they darken pretty good. perfect for me.
I received the curtains yesterday and hung them this afternoon. I was disappointed in the quality of material plus the bottoms of the curtains appear to be a little uneven. For the price of $** per pair (I needed two pairs to cover the width of the window), I expected a little better quality for the panels.
These curtains seem to be very well made. They are very sturdy. They are made out of polyester, but they have a little more of a cotton feel to them. I got them in the blue, which is a darker blue, but not quite a navy. The other wavy line is kind of a silver color. It looks good together. I expected the background color to be white or an off white, but it's a light gray. I think I would have liked them better if the background color had been more of a white. But, I like them as they are. I think they are a good quality and I really like the fact that they are machine washable!
I received the order quickly, free shipping a bonus! First off, the packaging was easy to unzip and remove the curtains, no difficulty there which I appreciate. The curtains are a bright modern update to my bedroom and do block out the light quite well while brightening it due to the color scheme. Easy to hang, easy to close and open. Plus the length is just perfect and no longer hang on the floor and block the air vent like the 84" ones did, 63" is perfect! Only thing I notice is there is a fray in the polyester material when I opened them. I think I can fix it or cut it off without jeopardizing the rest of the curtain but very irritating to get something new and have that straight out of the package.
Yet again I have bought something that doesn't work where I originally wanted it but it is perfect elsewhere. These drapes are lovely but too casual for my dining area. I have them in the family room and they add the color and brightness I was hoping for.
