Room Darkening Curtains

if you actually want room darkening curtains, don't buy these. I bought two panels of the Red Sedona color in 63″ length. The bottom of the packaging even said THERMAL. Not even close. And as for the 63″ length, one of them was 63″, the other was closer to 61 1/2 inches. The fabric is nice and the curtains look nice, however, I purchased them for the room darkening aspect. I know for the money, I should not expect perfection, but to label as room darkening and thermal is just absurd. It says on the back of the packaging that it blocks out 98% of the sun. Well that's only happening if I paint the glass black. The panels were for my grandsons bedroom so I didn't need to spend a lot of money. I just wanted the room darkening.

We have had ours for 3 years, and really no complaints. I do agree with other reviews that they are thinner than blackout curtains. If you are looking for a black, completely dark room, you aren't going to get it. However they aren't sold as blackout curtains either, but DARKENING curtains. They do that well. They take my room with huge windows that is very bright, to the sun just rising brightening level and I'm okay with that. They are also great at keeping the heat level down. The material honestly still looks like new.

I bought both the solid black as well as the red and white patterned 2 packs of these room darkening panels. The curtain themselves look nice in my windows, however I had hoped that they would have been thicker, since they don't do much more than a regular curtain. Pros -Make the room darker, but does NOT completely block out the light -Fabric looks elegant -Lays nicely without weights Cons -Doesn't block out as much light as I would have hoped. I honestly feel like buying regular curtains would have achieved the same look. Despite my lack of satisfaction with the amount of light that I can still see with the curtains drawn, I simply plan to use my sewing skills to add some batting and blackout liner to them so they can become more energy efficient and completely block out light.

What I love about this product most is the 54″ length rather than standard 60-63″. It's harder for me to come across 54″ length curtains to fit my inner bay window's windows. I was recently doing some renovation in my horror themed bedroom, ((don't mind the wall paper being sealed in-picture and stand-in curtain tiebacks.)), and these fit perfectly! In the picture provided, the main blind is pulled down, and the two side windows have their blinds open. These IMMEDIATELY darken a room! I went from an overwhelmingly blinding room, to needing to turn a light on at 12-2 pm. That wasn't my intention, actually, but if you're looking for a room darkening curtain, this is it! Great that they offer two different lengths. I would definitely recommend them. I picked up enough to decorate the room and within seconds they're perfect! I'd recommend throwing them in the dryer with a wet towel for maybe 20 minutes on the de-wrinkle setting to remove the packing creases. Love these!

I bought these curtains for all of my windows, single panels, just to ease off the light and heat coming in through the windows over summer. If a customer is looking for a privacy curtain only, these aren't the ones for them. I do have blinds on all of my windows and with the blinds down and the curtains in place, the house does stay cooler and allows the AC to work more efficiently. I have several windows that get the full sun effect and these panels do darken the room considerably, even if the blinds are up behind them. I will say that I have tested the theory of being able to see through them from the outside when the light is on in the room. Again, these are not privacy curtains and if something is in the room or in front of the window, you will see a shadow, almost like what you will see in a tent, but you can't “see” the room/person in full view.
