Rated 2 out of 5 by flipat60 Not for us
--a good blackout drape. Backing is 'bonded' to the front. Sunlight can come in around the edges, so install as flush to the wall as possible.
--the pattern is subtle and nice.
--constructed well. I didn't open all four panels nor install them, so I can't comment on their uniformity from one to the other. Length for each panel is important for a straight, even hem.
--The fabric is shiny, somewhat like a jacquard. I had dry cuticles and felt them grab the fabric, although it didn't snag the fabric, as a jacquard tends to do.
--I purchased the "Steel Grey" (I believe-the darker grey) and wanted something a little lighter in color. This is a subjective point.
--I had to wait a full month before these panels shipped, however; it was okay with our schedule, and I was informed about the delayed ship/backorder before I completed the purchase. I returned them to the local JCP store, with absolutely no hassle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KimberlyGayle These curtains work and are beautiful hanging.
I ordered two panels on line and ordered two more because I needed more coverage. The curtains are beautiful and definitely block the light. I had sheers up prior to purchasing these curtains and love being able to close them at night for privacy as well. They work well for those two purposes, they are not heavy or thick so I don't know how they would block noise very well, but I live in the country where it isn't very noisy so didn't purchase them for that purpose. The only negative thing I can say about them is that in some places it looks like they were sewn in a hurry and not much time was spent to ensure they were sewn properly. I can't speak to the durability of them since I just got them last month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MimSue They are rich looking and enhance our room nicely.
The blackout curtains are easy to work with. They looked nice when I put them up and needed only a little steaming to get the wrinkles out from packaging. The color is rich and looks like velvet. They work great to keep my bedroom dark when the sun comes up. They are also great at keeping the room warmer when it is cold outside. I think this was a great purchase and I highly recommend these curtains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CozyinCA Blocks light and beautiful!
I work night shift and sleep during the day. I have had roman shades on my windows for years that give me privacy, but don't block out all the light. The sun seeps through on the sides and blinds me in the mornings. I put these curtains up a few weeks ago and it is almost black in my room. The only reason it's not completely black, is because I do not have doors on my bathroom and light comes in from the window above my tub. I purchased the chocolate brown and they are beautiful. The pattern is subtle. If you need to block out light, these work great! I got them on sale which was even better. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JuJu89128 Love The Pattern
These drapes are very elegant....room darkening not so much....but living in Las Vegas everyone has blinds and I couldn't stand them one more day. My home looks so much more beautiful, warm, cozy and the cats have easier access now to my windows. They do let light in but not too bad. What I like the most is when you go outside & have your lights on inside you cannot see one thing in the home. I could see everything with those stupid expensive blinds. The Best part of all is My Husband Loves Them & the bronze rods from J C Penney match perfectly. I ended up ordering allot more to complete my home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Royboy1 A Nice Curtain With Looks & Style
I purchase these curtains to cut down on the sun that was entering through the mini blinds. They have helped with keeping the direct sunlight down and making the room cooler. I like the dark brown color and the material has been imprinted with a unique design. Some light still makes it thru because these curtains don't have a rubber or Vinyl backing so you may need a different type if this is needed. I still like them a lot and they look great.
