They are lined so that helps keep some of the sun out. I just wish the material was a cotton blend rather than a polyester blend it would make it a little more high end. But nice nonetheless.
These curtains are absolutely beautiful! Even though they are faux silk, they are so much better than that stiff polyester fabric that looks weird when hung. They are beautiful hanging at my windows. Very pleased with this purchase, just wish the matching comforter set was as nice.
I have the Aurora faux leather curtains in an opening between family room and living room that are used in winter to keep heat from the family room fireplace contained in that room. The Aurora curtains are the same color on both sides so work great for that purpose. Also the dog peed on them a few times and they wash fantastically.. The color beige is a light neutral color and matches perfectly. So, when I decided to get blackout curtains for a full southern exposure double window in a bedroom with beige wood furniture I ordered these and they are perfect. Each window is 44" so I contemplated getting the 80" panels but figured more is better than less and for an extra $15 went with the 100" extra wide panels and glad I did. Someone mentioned they have no drape. If you are looking for formal pinch pleated creased curtains don't buy these. They are soft to the touch polyester with a nice weight that hangs smoothly as in the picture. I have not installed the hooks for the tie backs yet but I will. Steam cycle in the dryer removes any wrinkles. Although not completely, they do block most sunlight and are insulating. The plastic chrome colored grommets look fine when curtains are up. I highly recommend buying these Aurora curtains from OS. I paired them with Achim Buono II Carson curtain rod also from OS.
