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.
Loved these curtains!! Good for all any time of the year!
Disappointed by the quality and item is expensive. Same item u can get it for $7.99 from other vendors. Dont waste money on the ryder model expensive item
These keep that bright outdoors very dark inside your home,will definitely buy again.
Not light blocking and no backing on it. Super thin. Just not taking the hassle to return. DO NOT BUY! I suffer from migraines and really needed light blocking.
