perfect for keeping out the summer sun, highly recommended

Pros

  • Easy To Install
  • Functional

Cons

  • Difficult To Iron

Best Uses

  • Bedroom
  • Children's Room

These linings are easy to install and do a perfect job of keeping out the light.
They did, however, need ironing before putting up and it was very difficult to remove all creases. Although the appearance did improve after hanging for a couple of days.
I attached them to the curtains with a couple of stitches along each side to keep them in place. They give my light weight bedroom curtains more body and they hang well.

          Had these type of linings before and although previously described as washable the backings have always cracked and peeled off when washed even on cold wash. Dun elm have put dry clean only to prevent this but I wish someone would invent a washable version!

          Blackout curtain linings

          By DebJo

          from Wakefield

          About Me Midrange Shopper

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Easy To Install
          • Functional

          Cons

          • Plastic Feeling

          Best Uses

          • Bedroom

          Quite effective at blocking out most light behind curtains that are very thin on their own. They feel a lot more plastic and rigid than previous ones that I bought elsewhere(unfortunately that retailer does not sell them in a variety of sizes any more).
          Hopefully they will soften up a bit with use. I would buy again as they do the job.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The click and collect service did not work at all. Got no email at all to say that the linings were ready to collect. Tried the process all over again, still nothing. So went in to the store. They had my order on the system, but no product ready despite being in stock and 2 days after first placing the order. The staff at the customer service desk didn't come across as particularly knowledgeable. This area certainly needs improvement.

            • Heavy Curtains

            We are using these throughout our highly glazed, exposed coastal house. A good range of sizes means minimal hemming and no cutting. They are effective for blackout and, as far a s we can tell, thermally. Feel of good quality well made. You can get away with less width as there's no need to have an enormous 'gather' - in fact you want less as it adds to curtain bulk and space taken on the tie back. I like the way they attach to the curtain rufflette and don't interfere with the tidiness of the way the curtain heading sits. The fact that they are washable is a huge bonus, yet to be tested. Thanks, Gill

                • Living Room

                Both sets of blackout blinds were 3 inches short in drop, which were a disgrace for a large company like Dunelm, but I assume this is due to them being made in abroad and quality control do not check these things sufficiently. Fortunately I was able to swap with another set I already own as having a 80 mile round trip back to store is not cost effective but will leave me wary of future purchases. A small amount would be acceptable but not 3 inches !!

                    I bought a pair of black out curtain liners, does exactly as you'd want & keeps the room dark. They were easy to attach onto the curtains, I didn't even need to take them down.
                    What impressed me more than the product was the service of Dunelm staff who were all exceptionally helpful, polite and happy when serving me ... a sometimes rare commoditiy these days!

                          As soon as Spring sprung, we were awake with the larks due to light coloured curtains. Although lined, the sun still streamed through. Buying blackout linings did the trick, and we are now enjoying longer lie-ins in the morning!

                            Very pleased with these linings as not only do they cut out the light but have also improved the way a pair of fairly thin curtains hang giving them a look of quality.

                              Too heavy and too rigid. Didn't hand neatly. Great for small bedroom Windows only. Kept out the light but not attractive. Unfortunately my Windows are large and these are too heavy for my pole so had to be returned

                                I used the black out liners to line textured voile curtains in my bedroom. The curtains are very beautiful but the early morning light was waking me far too early. The linings have not altered the beauty of the curtains in the least and I now get a full nights sleep.

                                    Curtains used as a lining to my son's current curtains. Block out the light brilliantly - especially given the sun is on his window first thing in the morning. Great lining idea, stopped me having to buy new curtains!

                                    Very easy to fit. Highly recommended

                                    Bought from the st Helens store - abysmal service!!

                                    I did click and collect, was told ready at 3, got there about 3.05 to be told by customer services "that it's only just after 3".the manager couldn't care less, in the end a lad off the shop floor came over and offered to help. Took him a while to find it but least he was willing to help. If it wasn't for him I would have walked out - the store seems oblivious to what "click and collect" means! And show no respect to customers using the service. I doubt I'll return to the branch, but do like dunelm mill quality so would use the form again

                                          I strongly recommend not to buy this item. I bought a pair of 90"w x 72" drop linings from the website principally because they were (and still are) advertised as machine washable. The first linings I received were dry clean only and after considerable work on my part I located old stock which was machine washable. After 15 days and a lot of pressure I finally received washable replacements which are labelled do not dry clean. Despite clear guidance on the pack and curtain label, a member of Dunelm staff sent a message that she strongly advised it is better to have them dry cleaned than to wash them!
                                          I pulled up the gathering thread and hung them only to find one of the pair is 5cm longer than a new Dunelm curtain of the same size and the other is 10cm longer than the curtain!
                                          Quoted pack size is 228cm x 175cm.
                                          Actual size 231 x 186cm and 231 x 181cm.
                                          They really enhance my decorations!

                                              Actual product length not stated. It says length excludes pencil pleat header. But header of liner or actual curtain? Actual curtain is about 10cm shorter than stated. Very confusing!

                                              I thought that these would be really good. The creases never came out of the linings. The fabric is too rigid, to the extent that there was no drape, and the linings actually held the curtain away from the window! This allowed light from the streetlight outside my bedroom to flood into the room around the edges of the curtains. The texture is somewhere between a shower curtain and a sheet of cardboard. So, they didn't work as blackout linings. I gave up on them, bought some supersoft blackout lining material from a different shop, and made my own linings which now hang beautifully and cost the same to make as these ones.
