I have lived in Houston my entire life so I accustomed to all this sweltering heat. I recently moved the top floor of a 3 floor building with vaulted ceilings and my electricity bill was not too kind to me in these 100+ days of summer so I thought I would invest in some black out curtains. Oh my goodness how happy I am!!! Not only did they block out the sun... but they kept my 3rd floor vaulted ceiling apartment somewhat cooler!! Now I only have these curtains in my bedrooms but I will definitely be buying them from my living room windows as well. I have them in burgundy and they are just so beautiful and so soft!! This is definitely a great buy!!! If I made commission recommending these curtains I think I would be living very comfortably right now... have a wonderful week and I hope this review helps you!!!
I spent a long time searching stores in person for a curtain long enough for my patio door. Everything in stores was too short and too ugly. I somehow remembered overstock and checked it. Luckliy I found these curtains and they are really great! The material is different, almost like a microsuede but it does block the light although its hard for me to say 100% because I have a couple smaller windows in the room that have only blinds so light does come into the room. I ordered in Olive and was a little concerned that they would be rather...ahhh ugly.... but nope they are very modern and contemporary. I wish they had them in smaller lengths now so that I could put them on other windows.
I had been looking to buy curtains FOREVER online. I was getting frustrated because of the lack of colors/styles when you are looking for 108 inches or higher. These had many color options and they are grommet topped. In addition the fabric feels very nice. Great product and it was less expensive than others that were not nearly as nice!
These were much higher quality than I expected them to be. I ordered the burgandy... they are a beautiful rich, matte, merlot color. They are heavy and easy to handle. I had to sew mine (they were a tad too long) and then iron them w/ a cool iron. They are perfect for the room. Great item. Great quality. Great price.
They are not lined but do a great job of keeping light out, and keeping the room dark. I got navy and the color is rich looking. Overall very satisfied with the curtains. I've looked for a long time for blackout curtains that weren't overpriced but nice quality for our master bedroom and these worked great.
I have two rooms that face west and when the sun sets in Texas, it gets HOT. Yesterday it was mid-70's during the day and dropped to the 40's overnight - perfect time to test these curtains. I hung the curtains in one room and closed them just before the hottest part of the day. That room stayed considerably cooler than the other room without the curtains. That evening I opened all the windows in both rooms and checked about two hours later - the room with the curtains was definitely warmer than the other one. It was really nice to know that I can moderate the temperature in my home and protect my furniture from the blazing sun. I plan to finish hanging the rest of the curtains today. Definitely recommend these.
I was looking for a insulated curtain and was delighted that they also had black out qualities. I purchased them for my slider to help keep the heat from the Arizona sun from stealing from the air conditioning in my house, right now it is winter and the sun is not as hot as it soon will be so time will tell if the insulating qualities work as intended but the blackout quality works quite well. the Chocolate color is perfect with my décor my only problem is I should of ordered 4 pairs verses the 3 I got! I would of rated this a 5 but I have to wait to see how they insulate from the heat first.
We actually like these drapes, but if you wanted to black out a bedroom for a day sleeper, they're not the right choice. We have these in 3 colors now. the chocolate and olive are true black out. these ivory colored ones (don't remember the actual color name) do let some light through. They look great in our living room where we needed light, and they're enough to break the bright sunset when it shines in. The length is generous. I have them up against the 9 foot ceiling and they still drag a bit on the floor, but I'm told that's quite fashionable!
Satin look and Feel A little thin on bulk, but do block light, and nice quality!

After two attempts to find beautiful, light blocking curtains, I finally found these! They are wonderful! They totally block out light, and drape beautifully--at a super price! The fabric is easy care polyester, but it looks more expensive hanging up. I love how the color is the same on the front and back, and appears to be only one layer! (My previous attempts had 3 layers!) The grommets are sturdy, and a bronze color. The beige color is lovely. On top of all this, customer service was amazing too. I ordered the wrong size, and they were so helpful and prompt in exchanging them. You'll be happy!
