These curtains to a great job and I have received compliments on them. They were too long for my windows, so I cut them off and re-hemed them and they are great. They come with tie-backs in the matching fabric, but in our theater, we want dark, so I don't even use the tie-backs.
I purchased these for my Mother (her living room was getting hammered by the sun). She says that the heat has been greatly reduced. They look pretty in her house. I did not inspect the workmanship up close, but she said they were well made.
I purchased the Hotel Striped curtin panels for my bedroom. They turned out to be much better than I expected. I was expecting a rod pocket style only, however these have tabs sewn behind the rod pocket that allow for them to hang like pleated curtains verses being bunched up like a rod pocket curtain would be. Although, if that is what you are looking for, these have a full rod pocket that you can use instead of the tabs. I really like the flexibility of these curtains, and they do block out virtually all of the light without having a "white" blackout panel on the back, which is what I was expecting. Based on the price they are a great buy for the quality.
These curtains really do keep out the light. The only reason I did not give them 5 stars is because they were shorter on the ends than in the middle. I am a seamstress, so this is a pet peeve of mine. The hem was not straight. More like rounded with the ends being shorter. I kept them because when the curtains are open it is hard to tell.
I bought these for my bedroom and living room. The only negative is that the curtains for my living room arrived a couple of days ago, but the ones for my bedroom won't be here for another full week (even though they only shipped 1 day apart). I have put them up in my living room and they look nice, feel nice and heavy and do keep out the light.
They arrived very quickly --- very heavy fabric but drapes nicely. Fantastic insulated curtains that will save a lot on heating bills this year ! If I put my hand between the drapes and the window, the temperature difference is amazing --- wish I had bought these sooner !
I was initially very pleased by the color and appearance of the curtains, particularly the hotel stripe design. However, I was very disappointed that they do not live up to the claim of being blackout curtains - while they darken the room, they DO NOT block out 99.9% of light as claimed. Also, I doubt the claim that they are thermal curtains as there is no thermal backing which I wanted since I live in the Northeast. If I keep them, I will have to get a shade to go behind the curtains. One of the panels will have to be returned anyway since there is a defect running through it. For the price I paid, these curtains were very disappointing.
Received these just days after I ordered - they work wonderfully - keep the cold and the bright sunlight out. It's a good thing I set these up on the weekend, because we slept until 10AM because it was sooooo dark!!! When I opened them, there was frost on the windows and you could feel the cool air 'stuck' between the drapes and the windows, so hopefully, as the weather gets colder outside, these curtains help keep the heat inside! I wish I could hang them on my walls too!!
I bought these curtains for a room my husband sleeps in during the day... It has saved him from being overheated in the room and it has darkened it in there so he can sleep during the day... These were the highest quality curtains I have ever purchased... Just like all of your products, there is quality like no other... Thank you, Tami
