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.
These curtains were better than I expected. They have a beautiful satin look and can make the day time look like night when you close them. I got the 108 in curtains and they are definitely an attraction when people walk in. I love them.
We were a bit skeptical at first, because these curtains felt fairly thin (at least compared to other "thermal curtains" we already had), but as soon as they were up, we could tell that they are amazing. They look expensive (no cheap-looking crinkles in the fabric), glide smoothly, and do a fantastic job of blocking out the light as well as insulating the room from annoying drafts. We couldn't be happier and all our friends who come to the house now want them, too.
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.
