Review on 84 Inch H.VERSAILTEX Linen Blackout Curtains - Thermal Insulated Primitive Textured Burlap Effect Window Drapes For Bedroom/Living Room (1 Panel, Beige) by Tony Pearson

Stunning! Exceeded my expectations!

I wish I had more windows so I had a reason to buy more of these curtains!It took me a while to finally pick a curtain because they are all so gorgeous, but I finally settled on charcoal. I was looking for some long panels to visually open up the tall frameless window in the bedroom while also blocking light. Our linens/decor is largely in a grey palette, but kind of all over the place as far as tones and hues, some very greenish, some warm, some steely blue. To make matters worse, our furniture is a mishmash of mid-century walnut originals and contemporary laminated particleboard in black, brown and black-brown. So I was really hoping maybe some curtains would coordinate it all. I checked out the charcoal, taupe and grey and was completely unprepared for how terrific they all were. These panels are nice and weighty, but not heavy enough to make my widespread curtain rods droop. (I thought I might have to install a ceiling support, phew!). Although the product photos show the texture of the knit up close, the photos don't do them justice. You really have to see them in a room. There's a slight shimmer to the knit which doesn't at all show up as shiny or metallic, but subtly reflects so many complimentary tones in all different lighting. (You could probably purchase any shade of these H. Versailtex curtains for literally any color decor, and it would miraculously tie the room together.) Also, I never heard of this company before stumbling upon them on here, amazon for the win!PROS:- Definitely "room darkening" and not blackout, which I prefer. We tried blackout curtains and thought they were great until we woke up at 3:30pm and very confused. These block out enough light to sleep in comfortably, but not like an isolation tank.- Pretty, smooth, brown grommets. Antique bronze or whatever, I worried they would clash with my pewter rods, but just like the curtains themselves, they compliment the decor. I also appreciate the clean line- they're not stamped with weird embellishments and so there's no drag and it pulls smoothly without whatever you call that circular maneuver is when you're wrestling a drape that got stuck. (The ability to open and close efficiently is something I look for in a window treatment.)- Quality, straightforward packaging. Vinyl and a zipper go a long way. Nothing screams disappointment like new fancy drapes packaged like something someone forgot to pick up at the dry cleaners.CONS:- Compelled me to write a lengthy review about curtains, which I've never done before and am unsure how I feel about that.I am just a regular amazon shopper who paid full price and would do so again. I just happen to think these are terrific and deserve a strong recommendation:)

  • Love the curtains. They look great, feel good and thick material.
  • It might not be effective at blocking out all light
