I have had these in my bedroom for several months now. Like previous reviews these are not blackout curtains, but they do a pretty good job especially since I got beige. The fabric is very soft and thick. I have 11 windows in my room and we face the morning sun and I have been very pleased with the amount of sun these block, especially during the summer when our sun comes up at before 5AM. I thought they were a good quality for the price.
