We are thrilled with the black-out ability of our new Carnivale curtains. We selected the chocolate color. No light (from a bright street light) leaks through the fabric. There is some reflection above the curtain rod, but the curtains themselves are just what we needed to have a darkened bedroom for sleep. The "wrinkles" from being folded don't come out from being hung straight. We'll have to steam them. That's my only objection to this product.
I purchased these curtains for a sliding door at our beach home. First off, the color was exactly what I was looking for. Loved being able to get a free swatch before ordering. The fabric is so soft. The curtains hang great and do good keeping the heat from the sun out on those warm days. Plus they look much better from the outside than most heat blocking curtains with the white backing. Very pleased with my purchase and I'm thinking about ordering a third panel to make matching valances from for the windows in that room.
I like the drapes. I am covering 3 windows and one sliding glass door. I didn't order enough the first time,I liked them well enough to order more so they will REALLY LOOK GREAT and function good too. Can't wait for the others to get here. My house will look hot for Christmas.
It is real good as room darkening, however the fabric does have some flaws and the stitching is not the best. These are a replacement for some vertical blinds and work well for what I need them for.
Seemed like a reasonable price for drapes. They are just OK. Seams are a bit gathered and there are flaws in the fabric. Overall the drapes do look nice, they do block out the hot sun, and once ironed they hang well.
