Madison Blackout Panels
pretty drapes but definitely not "black out" drapes
I have a sleep disorder which requires that I try to make up some lost sleep during the daytime. These drapes are lovely (I got the slate ones) but there is too much light coming through. I appreciated another customer's suggestion of using blinds (which I don't have yet), but that would probably help; or I could back the drapes with a thicker drape material to make them blackouts.

Block out curtains
These curtains are great my husband works 12 hour nights and sleeps during the day these curtains keep the room dark and warm or cool depands what kind of weather we are getting. I recommend these curtains. Also they are very nice lookin curtains.

high quality window fashion
I agree with another reviewer that these panels are not exactly "blackout". However, I have them in all three of my bedrooms WITH blinds, and using them that way does indeed achieve "blackout" results.
Not mentioned in the description--and a HUGE oversight on Figi's part--is the absolute wrinkle-free fabric!! I can put them back over the tie-backs and leave them that way for weeks on end in the guest room; when guests arrive and close them to sleep there's not a wrinkle in sight. My husband was washing the windows and being his lazy self, tied the curtains up out of his way instead of taking them down. Even that did not cause wrinkles!
The colors are beautiful, and the price is excellent. You just can't ask for anything more!

NOT GOOD FOR A DAY SLEEPER!!!!!
IF YOUR A DAY SLEEPER, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
THESE DRAPES AS THEY DO NOT BLOCK OUT THE
SUNLIGHT ANYMORE THAN OTHER DRAPES. THEY ARE
BEAUTIFUL DRAPES, JUST NOT A TRUE BLACKOUT DRAPE. COLORS ARE WONDERFUL & TRUE TO WHAT IS PICTURED. GREAT PRICE
