These Curtains are exactly as described. They are very dense and completely block out light. i ordered one pair to cover a 71" wide window. It makes the stretch, but if you like them gathered quite a bit, recommend 2 pair for that width. The material is almost like satin. They have a sheen and luster to them that i did not expect. It is not a bad thing, just not what I expected. You defiantly need that style to be in the rest of the room. These were for a makeover in my tween daughters room. She loves them. The grommets are a rust color that matched our rod. They are not lined, but are of thick material. I am happy with the quality for the price I paid. It is hard to find 108" drapes.
These curtains keep out the light. They look very nice and I love that they are washable. The fabric is smooth and doesn't pickup the dog hair that accummulates on the floor. Very nice product. I got it tor the living room and the bedroom. Im happy with this product

i've purchased the color black drapes for most of the windows in my house. i suffer from migraines and these are truely blackout. They also block the sun during the summer and cold during the winter. I didn't have to iron them before hanging and they hang beautifully. They look great. I highly recommend these drapes. They are better quality and provide better blackout and block the cold more than more expensive drapes I previously purchased elsewhere.
Everything we expected! We bought these in beige, sky blue, taupe-green, and red for my daughter's townhouse and for my parents' independent living apartment. Gorgeous deep vibrant colors in a soft texture. These curtains add a bounce of color to the walls, a great backdrop to the decor. The blackout feature is a welcome treat, with surprising light control. The thermal feature is a great bonus and we feel it cushioning us already during this harsh weather. The rooms are much more cozy. The grommets: Yes! The grommets make the curtains move easily and look modern. These are NOT your Grandmother's curtains! A bonus is that with the grommets I didn't have to buy curtain rings. A note on the "olive" green color. My parents asked for "green for money" for their home office. I reluctantly got this but it turns out the green is quite fine. It is an on-trend soft taupe-green, not the ugly 1970s olive. Now that we have improved my daughter's home and my parents' home, I'm going to order some for our home. It is good enough for fussy-me! Advice to others: we purchased good rods (Target/Levalor); there are also some GOOD ones on overstock. Bottom line: RECOMMENDED
I ordered these drapes after reading the many shining reviews. As reviewed, these drapes are beautiful and look more expensive than they are. After receiving them I decided that the color did not give me the overall look I want ( in the photo they appear lighter and more ivory but they are actually a tan/beige). While the tan color was a nice color, i decided tht I need an ivory color instead and so I returned them to Overstock. Overstock quickly refunded my money. Overall, I would say that if you need a beige drape these are fantastic and don't hesitate to order them.

I bought these, in navy, for a massage room. They go along one wall (no windows) covering our extra pillows that hang from clips on the wall. I bought them for their color and the grommet top for easy sliding back and forth, not for the blackout aspect, per se. Plus the price was right. Well, the blackout feature has resulted in some much-needed sound-proofing (weight room on other side of curtained wall). Even better, these are beautiful, wrinkle resistant, machine-washable. The material is such that I can tell it'd be resistant to dog hair. Not an issue here at work, but at home that and the other features mentioned would be perfect. So I'm considering buying them for my home for to cover windows for the blackout and insulation features as well. Lastly, they get many compliments from clients. So I give these my highest recommendation. The shipping was super-fast too.
This is the second time I have purchased these curtains. They come right out of the package nearly ready to hang. A little 'steaming" in the dryer and they're perfect. the sizing is exact. I will say that a little light sneaks in around the grommets at the top, so they don't totally block the light, but with blinds behind them they do a pretty good job. One of the darker colors would probably be better than this light tan, but it matches our color scheme best. Also, I suggest you put them on a rod that doesn't extend too far out from the wall. That's another way the light sneaks in.

These blackout curtains are absolutely amazing! They are inexpensive but very well made, and the fabric successfully blocks out 100% of the light (though a small amount "seeps in" around the edges). They The only [slight] complaint I have is the fabric is shinier than I expected. If I had seen the curtains in the store, I might not have chosen them for that reason--which would have been a shame because the shine doesn't show at all once the curtains are hung. I highly recommend these curtains--for shift workers or anyone who may benefit from a very dark, quiet room.
Gorgeous color, extremely nice quality and they block out the light completely. I had to cover a sliding door with an awning window at the top and they do a fabulous job. I am a light sleeper and these really make for a wonderful morning of sleeping late when I get the rare opportunity to do so. I highly recommend these!
These are great for shielding the sun and cold from our tall windows. I ordered the navy blue and they are very pretty with good grommets for moving across the rod easily. I had others that I paid more money for but they were too heavy for me to move and they were not washable like these are. I highly recommend these wherever you may have windows that might be a little drafty or even just for looks. They do wrinkle and it's sometimes hard to get the wrinkles out. I steamer will do the trick. I also have a different color, chocolate brown in the master bedroom. These really help with the heat in the summertime. You can dress them up with valances if you wish but they are a very worthwhile purchase. The price is certainly right.
The color of these curtains are terrific. I'd rate them a 5 except that the fabric lacks elegance (fairly utilitarian) and putting them in the dryer as recommended to remove the wrinkles after shipping doesn't work, but overall they work very well and the beige color is a nice neutral beige that can go with many color schemes. They do really block out light. A *very* good value for the price.
I purchased the 108 inch beige panels. I have a very large slider so i ordered 2 pairs. I wished they had extra wide panels - so no gap where light sneaks thru. It looks just like the photo and although NOT lined, they really are black out. But remember they are not lined, so you will see the color from outside the window. It was OK for me since it is beige. Some developments allow only white or off white to show. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because not lined and not available in wide widths. But i like very much otherwise.

I was so excited when I opened the box. For the price, I expected a cheaper looking panel but was going with it because I needed some quickly and I had another pair on order. However, I fell in love. I cancelled the set that I had on backorder. The curtains were a silky type material. They have a bit of a shine or sheen and feel good to the touch. They are true blackouts and are exactly what I wanted. The quality for that price is FANTASTIC!!!!. 108" panels of good quality run anywhere from *** per panel, so to get the entire set for the price of one is a an added bonus. I have decided when I change out the curtains in the guest rooms I will get these because the 84" price is great as well. I recommend these curtains.

I purchased 4 sets in the Olive color for the purpose of converting my southern exposure entertainment/wet bar room into a home theater. The three large windows w/smaller windows above each, allowed a lot of light and heat to filter into this room. These drapes not only block out ALL the light, the room is considerably cooler. I had a window tinting appointment scheduled, but I cancelled the drapes do the job of blocking the heat. I am very satisfied with these drapes. In addition to light and heat blocking, they are beautiful, soft, and after hanging for a few days, wrinkle-less. I added white sheers behind the drapes to finish the ultimate result a very upscale home theater look for just a little over $$$. Ive created a completely new look thanks to O.co. I ordered more for another room.

Great product if you are OK with a non-matte fabric.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I purchased black & although they were black they had more of a "sheen" than was described.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was great, just not to my taste
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fair, had it been listed that they had a satin sheen I wouldn't have purchased & had to return them.
After installing, its not nearly as bright or hot in these rooms. Hoping they will help reduce our A/C bill. If you need blackout curtains for night-shift workers, you may want to pass on these. A lot of light still comes through the tops and through the grommet holes, so don't count on these curtains completely blocking out all light. Also, light peeks through the sides and where the curtains meet. Be sure to place in dryer for at least 20 minutes. One set I only put in the dryer for a few minutes and the creases did not come out (and still have not come out after hanging for 2 weeks). The other set I put in for about 20 minutes and the creases are gone. We ordered the beige and it is true to the site's color. We love them so much we ordered two more sets for other rooms!
Excellent product. Turned our space into home. Complements abound. The dark brown color is a tad lighter than expected, but I can say when I look at the product I think chocolate. Love 'em. We purchase two sets and they easily cover a total of four separate windows. Also perform very well when blocking sunlight and really help to control the light and privacy in the space. Can't imagine being able to purchase the material and make the product yourself for less. Attractive product...great deal!
