I am so pleased with the quality and beauty of these curtains. They are somewhat heavy and hang perfectly over my sheers. I have definitely noticed the difference in the way the room feels. The curtains provide noise reduction, blackout, and heat retainment, making for a calmer sleep. I was also looking for a sort of classic look, and these fill the bill nicely. I was hesitant about the polyester material, but it does not make the curtains look cheap in the slightest. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
