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.

Love it. Keeps sun out and my living room window faces the rising sun. Dark rum color is very nice, matches rug and furniture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yardart Looks good and hangs great.
Love the curtains but I would not call them blackout. They are more room darkening than blackout.

I love these in black and am absolutely delighted to have found them...too long ? indeed but I can work with that ! Thank you JCP for not leaving a loyal customer "hung out to dry" when it's just been a year since my original order and have desperately been searching for more!

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 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.
