I purchased the curtains for my college aged daughter's redecorated bedroom. The curtains are lined and the material adds a bit of elegance. It does not block out all sunlight but the material is by no means see through. It provides appropriate privacy for a bedroom. The curtains come folded I ironed them after reading the reviews of how hard the wrinkles were to remove, but the wrinkles ironed right out. The curtains hang well. The colors are consistent with the picture. They are very nice curtains and everyone was shocked by how little I paid for them. I was able to appropriately cover a single window and a double window for under a $100. Another great purchase from Overstock.com!
These have a very nice feel and the colors are really beautiful. My only gripe is that the seams are not sewed flat on the back of the curtain so when you iron them there's is a crease that won't come out. But nobody else will notice that so I'm pleased.
I bought these to go with the Melanie comforter set. The brown tone in the drapes was too red and did not work with the comforter and I was going to return them. Instead, I decided to use them in my living room. They are a bit thin but since I have bamboo shades on the windows, these are OK. They do have a bit of shine to them.
