I bought these curtains because I have a loveseat directly in front of 5 large windows. I hope they help reduce cooling/heating bills. These curtains block the sun's direct rays but let light in. However, they are not as sheer as in the picture online. You cannot detect any images through through them.
These look much better hanging in the window then they do straight out of the package. The measurements are more of a suggestion then a fact. I ordered 6 panels and they are all different lengths. They vary by a few inches. Not a problem for me as I planned to shorten them, I need an in between size. Probably best to order a size longer than you need.
Bought these for our bedroom. The only thing I don't like is they are hard to slide on the rod. I think they will help keep the room cool this summer.
The curtains I bought were not of good quality and the material appeared cheap, which is why I returned them ASAP.
I like the curtains
I wanted a cool airy look for summer to replace heavy drapes. I hang six panels together as a divider between two rooms and hang two panels on each of the living room windows. They are very light and it is the look I wanted except for the thermal backing. I can't help thinking I have hung shower curtains at my windows. The interior six panel curtain between rooms is most upsetting because the back reflects light and looks very tacky.
