Curtains block out light very well, grommet top is very easy to hang. Wrinkles came out on their own without having to steam them in the dryer. Color is beautiful. I got the red at first and then bought a set of turquoise. I work nights so I really needed something that would block out light completely so I'm not awakened by the sunlight mid morning. These are excellent. I have them on most of my windows and it's often very dark in my house during the afternoon.
