The material and color are both beautiful. It's unfortunate that whomever designed this shade forgot that curtain hardware has to fit in the miniscule pocket that it provides for hanging. It was impossible to get a standard sized (small) rod through the gap. It's incredibly frustrating and baffling that something that looks so good could be so poorly designed. I'm going to have to send these back, which is inconvenient for me and means I'm starting all over again. Ridiculous.
This black out shade in a soft gray color was purchased for a VERY sunny bedroom. It does work wonderfully. The material is nice - even right out of the package - and it was very easy to hang (my teenager actually did it herself) . A roman shade would have been perfect and would have added an extra star to the review. This one has to be tied up ( tricky to get both sides even ) if you do want to let in the sun or have a view. I would purchase again.
We have an eastern exposure bedroom that gets blasted with morning sun, and these work perfectly to keep the room very dark and cool. I bought the turquoise for a beach themed guest room, and they are a very nice, soft material. Honestly, it is too cumbersome for me to tie them up and untie them each day once the morning sun has passed (three windows and two ties per window), so I end up leaving them down and just use them as 63" curtain panels. I close them over the windows at night, and push them to the side to open them during the day. They work great for keeping out light and heat.
These curtains are perfect for my toddler's bedroom. They are easy to tie up and let down. They block the hot bright Texas sun from his room during nap time! I highly recommend them if you're looking for something to block out the light.
These are good shades - I have another style by the same company and they are well-made and good quality fabric. This style is best for a room where you aren't going to untie and retie a lot, because it's time-consuming to consistently make it look good. I'm trying to figure out a way to alter it so I can do it more quickly and easily. If anyone else out there has ideas let me know!
My new black out shades work great for me. I am a day sleeper and I really was in need of a good product to keep the sun out and my room dark. The shades definitely do the job so I can do my job at night! I like them so much I bought a pair for my son and my grandson's room. Thanks a bunch!
I just moved into a new home and had a window in my bathroom that needed covering. I am a Registered Nurse who works night shift so I needed something cute that would also keep out the light while I sleep during the day. This tie up shade has worked perfect! The color is beautiful (I ordered burgandy), its cute and it keeps out the light better than most other "blackout" curtains I've tried. I totally recommed this product as I am 100% satisified.
While they look fine and are of decent quality, they fail to truly block out all light. I ordered them in beige, and when the sun is shining in the windows the room still has a fair amount of light in it. If you want your room to be DARK, these are not the shades for you. My kids' bedroom windows face west, and there is nothing outside to block the evening sun. I was hoping for something to make it dark enough for my 2 year old to go to sleep at 8pm...and while these work better than the plantation blinds we previously had in there, they still don't black the room out.
I bought these for my living room windows, which get the afternoon sun full-on. They definitely help block out the light and the heat. Also, for my window that has an AC unit in it, the tie feature means I can still shade the top part of the window without anything hanging over the air conditioner.
I bought this shade for my toddlers room. It does the job I need it to. I just wish it was easier to tie up because I am doing it two times a day & more colors would be great. When I ordered there was only a handful available from all the colors offered.
I would say this curtain blocks about 95% of light, but it does work well and I would not only recommend it but would buy another. My favorite thing is it's VERSATILITY. I can have it down solid, pushed to the side and tie back, tied up as the two ties are intended ... and it is super soft and a very nice fabric. Maybe the black color would block out a little more light (as I did get the beige). Overall, we are SATISFIED!
This shade is exactly what I was looking for. I bought 2 for my bedroom and last night was the first night they were up. I slept like a baby because it darkens the room and blocks the noise from the busy street. The only problem was that I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. Highly recommend!
