Blackout? NOT!
 from Hawaii,  Sep 23, 2012

I bought three pairs of the beige curtains as blackout for my bedroom. The description claims they block 99% of light as tested in a lab. Apparently their lab is staffed completely by blind researchers! These curtains block maybe 50% of direct sunlight. With the shades that are already on the windows down, they do block a lot of the reflected light from coming in around the shades though. But I was hoping to get rid of the shades and just use these curtains. I am very disappointed that the description was a blatant lie. I suspect that the darkest colors may do a much better job at blocking light as the fabric is quite thick and dense. The light colors will not be blackout! Be warned.

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was a good match.
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The drapes are heavyweight and consistent in size and color.
  • How accurate was the on site description of the product? These are not blackout by any measure!
