For $12, the curtains were a great value. We've definitely noticed that heat is being retained much better with these curtains, which is the primary reason for this purchase. Pretty good product for a pretty good price.
Surprises at how nice of quality for the low price. Definitely more than I expected. Great at blocking the light.
I always wanted to try the energy efficient curtains and these curtains are certainly efficient. I ordered them in chocolate which is alright if you want a dark room all of the time but, I think I will a lighter color for my bedroom. It's a good bargain, keeps the light out, and keeps the cold out as well.
After reading all the reviews, I went to my local Walmart Supercenter and checked out the Mainstays and Eclipse brands of blackout drapes. There is absolutely no comparison! The Eclipse are a far superior product for less than $3 more per package. The Mainstays are very lightweight, made with no backing material and when I held them up the fluorescent lights of the store the material performed minimally. The Eclipse brand has a heavyweight, "classy" material with a full backer that has been tested by an independent laboratory confirming all its claims of thermal efficiency and light blocking. To me the extra few dollars were a no brainer, not only due they look richer but outperform my expectations and I live in the deserts of Arizona! I purchased two for my East facing windows and three for the West facing, brighter and warmer side of the house where my master bedroom is!
I love them and will be buying two more pair this month.
Very rich looking panels. Keeps light out and draft out. A+++++++
After installing the Eclipse curtain, I don't know how I put up with the outside light from my apartment's horizontal blinds for all these years. These curtains do indeed block out 'most' outside light and help set the mood for sleeping. Make sure you mount the curtain rod so it extends 3 or 4 inches past the top and sides of the window to help block extra light from leaking in. I got the 84" curtain which I have resting 2" form the floor. I'm using 2 curtains panels to cover the 58" window. The added bonus is the way they filter sound. I live next to a busy street. Now the sound of cars going by is not gone, but muffled and slightly quieter. Don't expect any curtain to eliminate all sounds. There are acoustic drapes designed for that. I like the chocolate brown color. It works well with the tan, beige and black color scheme in the room. The curtains are not heavy but not light and super thin either. The biggest issue is the creases from packaging. I've had some success using a upright clothing steamer though. Be prepared to do a lot of steaming. I used Walmart's Mainstays curtain rod which is working well. It has 3 mounting brackets so it won't sag in the middle. If you don't have a solid wall to screw the brackets onto, good luck getting it to hold with repeated use with just the enclosed screws. I wound up needing to get 1/8" X 2" toggle bolts at a hardware store for one bracket as it keep loosening due to the side-to-side force of opening and closing the curtain. The wall had nothing solid to screw into but the toggle bolts solved that. I know I'm not supposed to be drilling holes in the wall of the apartment but I will patch it when I move out.
I found waiting for the curtains to be excrutiating long and frustrating process when ordering site to store. I really cant believe it really takes so much time to ship an order. The only reason I did it was because it was free. My fiannce Ricky hated them the minute I put it up. I took them down and ironed them which did help a little. I will have to wait until next month to see if it cuts down on the electricity bill.
Although it does "blackout" the room; it does not help with energy at all. The room temp has not changed with or without the panels. GREAT for blacking out though. NOT efficient.
My curtains arrived today and I couldn't be happier! You can't see it in the picture, but they actually have a subtle basket-weave texture. I purchased two of the shorter length panels and they look perfect in my bedroom. As soon as I put them up, my bedroom was like walking into a cave! It really keeps the light out.
Very impressed with the shipping. The package arrived and nothing was bent or broken and it was packaged up very nicely. Product is exactly what I was hoping for and look very nice and sophisticated.
I bought these because 1) all of the great reviews and 2) the picture makes the curtains look really flowy and elegant. In fact, I'm sure the curtain functions well as energy saving and light blocking, but the appearance is terrible in my opinion, mostly because they are not flowy. They are very stiff...and they did not look pretty hanging on our windows. I saw a review that washing the curtains several times helps so I tried that and it still looks terrible and stiff to me...so buy these if you only want function and you want to save a few bucks, but not if you want it to look nice. I wish I did more research on better looking options because now we're stuck with it or that's $70 down the drain (since we bought 6 panels for my son's room)...
I was skeptical at first when I saw these online. I went down to the store to check them out. In the store you can see the colors and different textures. They have cheepy looking ones and then these suede ones that look fantastic! I bought a single panel for our little spare bedroom. The room was freezing during our winter freeze until I got this panel. The room is now toasty warm like the rest of the house. I am going to replace all the curtains in the house with these! Well worth $11!!!!!
The room is wall too wall with double pane energy efficient windows. When I put up these curtains the room immediately became considerably warmer. The cold draft was gone and the room became quite dark. They are just what they say. I am quite happy with the purchase.
We were having extreme waves of heat coming from the windows in our living room towards the middle of the day. We wanted something that looked good, but could also save us on your energy bill. We found these curtains and they have been amazing!! There is a dramatic difference in the temperature of our living room. No more cranking the air down, just for the sake of the living room. Living room now stays cool with the rest of the house. I will buying more of these curtains for the rest of house.
I really like this item. It does exactly as expected with keeping the air out and the room dark. This item has to be put in the dryer with a wet towel to get out some of the wrinkles though I still had to iron them further but once up they were great.
I love these curtains. I ordered them for the color, but my husband works midnights and needs complete dark when he sleeps. These work great!
great price, look and does what it says....
The curtains look great and darken the brightest rooms. A great value for the money spent!
Curtains are heavy weight and excellant for keeping the cold out in winter and the heat out in summer. I bought Chocolate brown and the darker color is more room darkening than the lighter colors. Excellent product. I bought the 64" panels and cut in half to use inside an RV. The color is perfect and grade of fabric is heavy weight. They hang very well on rods or slider hooks. I have these in my home also. Made the RV look and feel like I had custom made drapes. The fabric was easy to work with sewing. I made all new drapes for less than 1/4 of the cost of buying custom drapes in the RV catalogs. Thanks Walmart for carrying this product. I will certainly buy again and recommend to anyone who needs quality drapes.
