I ordered these panels in Expresso and am very, very pleased with the color, texture, weight and construction of them. The thermal lining is not extremely heavy so not sure about the insulating quality; however, it adds just enough weight to make them hang very nicely. I ordered another set to get the fullness needed on my larger window but that was my mistake not a problem of the curtains. Packaging wrinkles were easily removed by using a steam iron.
I ordered the teal and it is much brighter than appears on my screen. It's a personal preference, we wanted something a bit more muted. If you google pantone color PMS 321 that is about what it looks like. We are going to try the steel blue instead.
I bought these in lime for my bedroom hoping the color would blend well with new bedding and accessories for my bedroom. I had shopped everywhere from the big box stores to most all online sites and could not find these in pairs versus having to buy panels separately. The prices were so much higher elsewhere plus I could never find a shade of green I really liked. I am so pleased with the style,fabric and color of these. They look like real silk but are washable. Very satisfied with my purchase. In the future I will look at Overstock first and save myself time and money.
These curtains are not complete "black out"; they are "thermal" curtains. That is, they are insulated with a thin, white, microfoam backing applied to the backside of the fabric. They do block quite a bit of light, but not all. Although the description says that they are machine washable, I would not do so, as the foam backing is fairly delicate. I went for the Almond color as it seemed very neutral, but when they arrived I could see what other reviewers have said is true: the color is more of a gold, than a plain dark beige or light brown. I tried to like them, but once hung up, the color just looks wrong. I'm returning them for the Espresso version. Also worth noting: the curtains arrive with deep, resistant wrinkles from being folded in their packaging.
These curtains are really lovely, elegant and the silky material is gorgeous. I am delighted with the very reasonable price, the way they hang and how great they look. They really do block out the Florida sunlight. The double wide panels fit sliding glass doors and you only need 2 panels , one for each side.
This products color is NOTHING like pictured. I purchased one in steel blue and one in viridian grey. The steal blue one's real color is more like the viridian grey's colored pictured. They are pretty colors but not the ones I wanted or needed. Also, the viridian grey one is more of a flat gold color. Also, I have tried washing, hang drying, and even ironing to get the packed creases out and they just won't come out. Another thing is the material is obviously cheap (despite the price) and there is no possible way it can keep out heat. They say this is a black out curtain but it isn't.
