After my neighbors cut down some trees in their back yard, I needed some additional coverage for my bedroom window (they keep a deck light on all night and it was peeking through my blinds). When I saw these drapes, I was really excited. They looked expensive and the design was modern but not too contemporary. I was concerned when I ordered them because they are white and I wasn't sure how well they'd block out that deck light. I have to commend Overstock because I ordered these with standard shipping on a late Tuesday evening and received them on a Thursday afternoon! The panels are really silky and lined, they also have two hanging options. I was pleased with how they looked but was concerned with how well they'd block out light. After a nights sleep, I couldn't be more pleased! These are on par with hotel drapes with how well they block out light. I'm off work today so I slept in and while no, my room wasn't totally blacked out at noon, it was pretty darn dark! I'll echo some. Of the other reviewers by saying the white is more of a taupey-khaki color, but they look great. Highly recommended.
