Maybe it's the color that keeps it from being completely blackout (I do have other blackout curtains that completely block light), but the quality is very nice. The grommets are silver. The color is like celery, and looks very nice with a white chunky curtain rod. They aren't heavy and oppressive looking, like other dark colors. They feel like a spring color.
The drapes arrived within a few days. We've received many compliments on these drapes. They really dress up the room. I do wonder why they call the color forest green when clearly they are closer to a celery. Pic represents color well. I wish they had these same drapes in more colors. I would buy for every room! Love these drapes!
Overall, satisfied with the curtains. We've had them up for a couple weeks now. They block out a significant amount of light but not completely. Due to the grommets and the curtains coming off the wall a bit, light shines out the top. We also close the blinds behind the curtains to help as well but it definitely suits our needs and improved the sleeping conditions in our master bedroom. The denser the curtains are, the darker the room is so if you prefer darker, add more panels. A nice color, accurate sizing, the grommets are high quality and I don't foresee any issues.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is very close to picture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The curtains are heavy duty but there was a snag on one of them.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate size and description though not entirely blackout.
Fabulous answer to our problem of heat from floor to ceiling south windows in room with 17' ceilings! We are able to keep the house 10-15 degrees cooler when the sun is at its most intense. In fact, we rarely use the A/C now that we have these. Cannot recommend highly enough. We love them.
Was very pleased with the quality of the fabric, heavy weight and just what I was looking for but it was not the color I expected. It is a bit darker in person than it is in the photo. I really wished it would have matched because they were of great quality and would have hung nicely.
True to color, the length is great and the price is nice. There was one caveat, however; the stitching was undone on part of the drape. This is easy to notice as the drapes block all light, except for the places where the stitching is loose or nonexistent. Not a huge deal, really. I wasn't expecting top-notch drapes in this price range. Functionally speaking, they do the job and look great. Definitely a total block of light, and some thermal and noise reduction as well.
I ordered these drapes expecting them to not truely block out the light but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and that they do a great job of blocking out light. In addition to that they are lovely and drape beautifully. These drapes are on very tall windows and I had been having trouble finding anything long enough and was resigned to having to pay for custom drapes but Overstock.com carried the length I needed at a very resonable price and shipped them quickly. Thank you so much, my room looks beautiful.
