I love the curtains because they keep the bedroom dark at night! I did the blue/natural combo (2 blue & 2 natural) and the blue works better at keeping out the light. WORD OF CAUTION: the width they use in the description is for both panels combined. Each panel is approx. 39" wide for a total of 80".
I bought these curtains in white for our nursery. They look wonderful in the room. The fabric is pretty thick so it blocks the light really well. Obviously since they are white they aren't total black out, but when they are closed they make the room pretty dark. I wish they had these in more colors because I would buy them for other rooms in my house.
These heat reflecting curtains were quite expensive and I do not notice any difference in the amount of heat coming into the room we hung them in. I feel as though I could have just purchased cheap curtains for the room. I purchased these for the weather insulation feature and that feature is not noticeably present.
It took me forever to find a white curtain that also blocks light. This definitely does the job! The fabric is very thick and pretty, and it hangs nicely. It is a true white, but not as shiny looking as the photo. They seem to be more of a matte canvas. I love how the tabtops roll nicely on the rod and stay where you need them. No tugging required! They certainly aren't super fancy, but they are attractive and fucntional.
I WOULD HAVE RATED THESE EXCELLENT, EXCEPT THAT ONE PANEL CAME VERY STAINED. THE PACKER AT THE FACTORY MUST HAVE NOTICED IT SO IT WAS AN UNECCESARY DISSAPOINTMENT. I WILL HAVE TO ORDER ANOTHER PKG OF TWO. IT TAKES 2 PANELS OR ONE PKG TO MADE THE WITDTH OF 80 INCHES. I WOULD NOT SAY THESE ARE A "NATURAL" COLOR, BUT A BEAUTIFUL CREAMY BUTTER. STITCHED WELL AND TAB TOPS ARE ALL EVEN- DRAPES HANG NICELY AND EVENLY AT BOTTOM. THE BACKING IS WHITE AND AS DESCRIBED ON THE WEBSITE. IT DOES AFFORD PRIVACY YET LETS LIGHT IN DURING THE DAY. I PUT PANELS IN DRYER WITH WET TOWEL TO GET SOME WRINKLES OUT, HOWEVER AFTER HANGING FOR JUST A DAY THE REST FELL OUT THEMSELVES. I AM HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE.
These panels are made from a nice, thick cotton and hang nicely. They aren't overly wide, so when I stretch them across my 2 windows that are side by side, they just barely cover the windows. They aren't totally room darkening, but with blinds they help cut down on the room's brightness in the morning. They're not fancy, but are attractive and functional in our guest bedroom.
We have a large front window in our PNW house that looks out to the street. We have the cheap white Ikea semi-sheer curtains doubled up, but you can still see outlines when the house is lit up and it's dark outside. We got these to change that. I got them home and washed them and dried on low heat (says to drip dry in care instructions, so partially my fault) and the curtains shrunk between 6" and 12". So now we have high water curtains. They allow plenty of sunlight through (which is what we wanted) but prevent people from seeing into the house.
