I bought 3 of these for my granddaughter's new "big girl" room and, WOW!, were we impressed!!! I'm a careful shopper - knew what I wanted to get her, read the reviews, made sure it was OK with her parents, and then ordered them. First, the fabric is amazing - VERY HIGH QUALITY! (I worked in a textile market at one time and know enough about fabrics to speak intelligently on the subject.) The granddaughter's new room is in the front of their home and has windows facing the south and west so I knew they needed something that was going to be insulating and block the sun - these fit the bill perfectly. They look so nice hanging and everyone that has seen them has commented on them in a positive way. I've got to tell you I truly wish there were more colors available because I'm seriously considering buying more for use in my own home!!!
Purchased these black out curtains for front bedroom(2) dormers that had starlight,moonlight, sunlight and street light streaming through them at all hours of the day and night. When I had a house full of guest coming, I ordered and put up this shade and it blocked all light at night and about 90% of East/South sunlight exposure during the day. I would highly recommend these to all night shift workers like myself because after 30 years of sleepless days, I can finally get a good days rest. I purchased the black out curtains and they provide a 90% decrease in room light. I've since put a valance over the window and have to use a room light or flash light during the day to see it's that dark. I am a 30 year night shift veteran.....Buy them!!! Buy them in the darkest color available (Ihave navy blue and black) and get a good night sleep.
I love these Roman Tie-up Shades! The colors are true, material is soft, and looks nice from both inside and out. I had plain white black out shades in my sons room, awful looking, but did the job. These black out all the light, keep the room cool AND look great. They stand up to washing and drying as well! I bought four, 2 in Navy and 2 in Burgundy.
Great blockout drape with a beautiful light blue fabric on inside to look at as well!! My husband works nights & sleeps during daylight hours so a "true blackout" feature was top priority. I'm ordering more asap.
I ordered and got my product quickly! They are great much better than the heavy thermal insulated drapes and the black out shade keeps out sun and heat. I will buy more for other rooms in my home. I am very pleased with this buy!!!
Measure your window width well. These fit our window, but a bit too much light was coming in the edges. What we did was leave up the drapes we had already, and hang this curtain between them. That looks nice and it is perfect for our bedroom.
One thing we didn't think of was opening the curtain in the morning. It's awkward on one of the windows, just do to being able to reach it easily. The other window is okay. But it is an extra step to have to tie up the curtain with two ties and have it folded nicely.
All that said, we have a window air conditioner unit. The curtain ties up so we can expose the AC while keeping the rest of the window covered. Very convenient and much less cumbersome than pull back drapes on that window.
We'd buy them again, because these are very efficient at keeping the light out.

I bought these curtain/shades and also ordered some from two other on-line stores because I could not find what I wanted in any of the traditional stores. I took a chance the color would be just what I wanted and when they arrived, they were perfect. Heavy weight (whereas the others I purchased from other on line stores were very cheap feeling) and they look perfect in my home. I have no complaints and would order from Overstock again and again.
Ultimately, I returned these curtains. However, not because there was anything wrong with the description and/or color of them. They were actually very nice. They just didn't end up working on the window for which I ordered them. But I would order them again for anther room.

Love my new Blackout Curtains. The care is so easy all you need to do is toss in dryer with a damp cloth and dry on low setting for 20 minutes. Looks Great. Will be ordering more for my other windows that get direct sunlight daily.

In the Product Details, it states that the shade is 42 inches wide, but in the Features section right below, it has the width as 50-60"", 61-70 inches. I have a pretty wide window, can you please let me know the exact length and width of this shade?yanafeygin on Feb 20, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question. The Solid Insulated 63-inch Blackout Tie Up Shade measures 63 inches long x 42 inches wide. I apologize for the confusion. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 22, 2013
This shade would be for my child's nursery. The colors of the room are a teal and pink. Therefore, I'm having a hard time deciding if the sky blue or turquoise is closer to the colors we already have. Can you advise either way? From the pic, it looks like the sky blue would match better but, I don't want to get it and it be too blue versus teal and realize that we should've gone with the turquoise. Please let me know ASAP. Thanks!aprrob on Jan 23, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The turquoise is currently available, but we do have the sky blue. According to the reviews, the colors that have been ordered are accurate to the site. Hopefully, the sky blue works for you. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 24, 2013
I have a double window that measures 72". Is there a possibliity that I could get one of the tie up curtains for 72 or little larger. I suppose I could buy two of the 63" and sew them together but not sewing the pocket for the rod. What do you think? Thankssouthernld on Jul 19, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Are these a pain to tie and un-tie all the time? I'd like them for a nursery and I don't want to make a big fuss every night and morning. Also, do they look nice when they are pulled all the way down?cah1418 on May 21, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

I have 261/2 wide windows. Can I use these shades (42wide)? Or do they have wood slats which would prevent any gathering down to 261/2? Thank you for all the great reviews. Need an answer soon & would prefer these to drapes! Thanks. Patpyares on Jan 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
