I ordered 4 of these in taupe, and the color is as pictured. It blocks a good deal of light, but not all (as expected). It is not thick like thermal curtains (no vinyl backing). Note that the back of the curtain is dark brown, which helps with the darkening but may absorb heat from direct sunlight.
I wanted a panel with the thermal backing, these did not have it. The description was miss-leading. You need to have better descriptions of the item and include close up photos of the material and a photo of the back sides.
I purchased 6 panels for my mother's dining room. They are a nice medium weight and non see through. My mom loves them and they give a classic look to her dining/living room. I bought the tan ones.
I'm sure they would work great if they carried a different size. These can save you money on your electric bill but only come in 63 or 84 length and I need like 74...
I like the new curtains they were a great seal. The online price was great and i saved so much time by ordering the item online. Sears was great
Works as advertised. insulated as well. Paying extra for drapes with built in grommets for hanging are well worth the money, as well facilitation for ease if use.
My grandson likes his new curtains, they go well with his décor.
