Looks good, very inexpensive, but what a hassle.JaniPurchased for 8 wide & short windows - serious hemming. On-line said no hemming required, just cut to length. The light that escaped caused the bottom edge to glow where it had been cut. If you sew the "fabric", light shines through the holes. I had to get really creative to get them hemmed. One panel had a few holes when it arrived, should have returned it as there are pin holes of light. I do like the final look, but if you need to hem, plan before you cut.3
Really ugly color; had to returnRichardThese looked blue online -- to me, anyway -- but when I picked them up they were a very ugly "hospital grey", and I returned them immediately. I'm not making any judgments regarding the quality or any other aspect of the curtains -- just the color.1
It makes the room darkerMONSITHIt makes the room darker and also prevent most heat from outside the house. Great value for the price.5
Excellent light block, superior valueDanielCurtains block light 99.99%. Exceptionally wide so, in my case, wide enough to cover two windows with one panel. Not advertised as thermal curtains and they aren't so don't expect them to be. Not sure how Ikea does it, but another superior value.5

Does the jobEmilieThis is a very inexpensive curtain that will do the job for blocking out light and darkening a room. However, the pictures don't necessarily show that the back is made of plasticy black coating, not very pleasing to the eyes. Would need to be lined if one wanted to see it on both sides.3
Was looking for a fauxAnitaWas looking for a faux leather curtain. Reversed the hems and got the look I wanted for an awesome price5
Wonderfully room-darkening. Works well onPaulaWonderfully room-darkening. Works well on wire curtain hanging system because of light weight.5
Great valueMarilyn W.Provides excellent blackout. The reverse side is shiny black material, so not very attractive from the outside. But great value.5
Sun blockers finallyDanielleI have been blessed with large front windows and to cover them it can be a curse due to cost, so we gave Bengta a spin. I could t believe that they truly blocked the sun! I mean our room was dark!! The only issue I had was the street side is black, and if the window Isn’t full you won’t see the pleats. I bought extra to make sure it’s full and I probably could add two more on each side just wish they had large rods. They material is amazing I could sit there and rub it all day, it’s a textile pleasure and it also looks nice up! Not cheap which makes me so happy. I wish it was a tad bit thicker with winter coming, but it does a get job to keep the heat out!!!!! I bought 16 panels so that tells you how happy I am5
Loving them!Snowflake24I brought these curtains a few days ago and couldn't live without them! Color is deeper than picture - more like downcast sky before a storm but pretty. Block lights really well.5
blacked outanniebctI needed a black out curtain so I would stop looking like a secret informant on zoom calls and this does the job at a very reasonable price. One thing I didn't realize - the back side is black so is not very attractive from the street.5
Beautiful curtainsAngieGMI bought this last week. Very nice color better than the picture5
Color is way off.radmoncBlocks out light but the curtain color is more of a steel gray rather than a light blue as the pictures would appear to be.1
