Super blackout linings

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Bedroom
    • Living Room

    I have used this product in my lounge. It does what it says on the packet. It blocks out street lighting and car headlights which shine directly in. It also reflects heat back into the room. They are also excellent for bedrooms. Because they are removable, the curtains can be laundered separately (either washed or dry cleaned).

      • Bedroom

      My neighbour often leaves her outside light on all night and it is unbelievably bright. For months I have been sleeping badly but now the room is blissfully dark. Fairly easy to fit but well worth it. I had put off adding lining as I didn't have time to make these myself but these ready made ones are just the job.

      Effective blackout lining

        • Bedroom

        Bought these linings as they seemed to be the best priced product about and was not disappointed. Little fiddly to attach to curtain but no worse than other linings I've bought in the past. The linings are so effective and really do block out the light so do not hesitate to purchase if you're thinking about it. Added them to bedroom curtains that are 229cm curtain width and I found them ok to hang - but remember it is quite a heavy task as the lining needs to have some weight to it to be effective so be prepared for tired arms - it's worth it though and should be no detraction from the excellent product.

          Love your curtains but not the light that gets through them? No need to change - get these liners - they are incredible! Very easy to install (they just hook into existing curtain tabs) and completely block out light. Haven't slept so good in years!

            Good quality blackout linings. Bit fiddly trying to attach a lining to curtains with the hooks and only down side is the longer you want the lining, the wider they get as well, but fantastic value compared to buying blackout material by the metre.

              I have the ivory white curtains from dunelm in my bedroom which are beautiful but do let some light in. These blackout curtains are a fantastic product suggested to me by my sister who also bought them. Very easy to hang, just clip onto the same curtain hooks on curtain rail. Also keep room warm as added bonus. Really block the light out completely so highly recommended.

              • Bedroom

              These curtains seem good value for money. The attachment to the existing curtains with the curtain hooks seem very difficult and not smooth, so I actually hand sewed the blackout blind to the existing curtain just under the bottom of the curtain tape. The curtain tape is hard so you might need to protect your finger.

                    I bought these for my guest room curtains, which although lovely let in the morning light. I had originally thought about fitting a blackout blind but the window is very big and it would be difficult to fit, and after much deliberating decided on these curtain linings. I had read reviews that they would be difficult to fit, but I was delighted to find that they were very easy to fit, and do exactly what they should, completely blocking out the light. My windows are not double glazed and they have a the added bonus of providing insulation. I'm delighted, a great product for a very reasonable price!

                      Bought for my son and daughter in law for their bedroom as their curtains were not heavy enough to darken the room.
                      A little bit fiddly to install but not too bad.
                      They make a huge difference to the room and show up the colour of the curtains much better. No sewing for me to do which was great.
                      Also they are washable.

                          Voile curtains looked nothing and then added the blackout curtains .....now they look like curtains and feel like curtains, they hang properly too and give warmth to the room. Really pleased and will definitely be getting some more.

                            joined them onto thin cotton curtains that now look plush and expensive.
                            I found it very easy to apply onto the curtains

                              A little fiddly to attach, just need some patience. Fitted well but a little disappointed with the hemmed edge which was a bit puckered. Didn't warrant returning as they were already up and I had guests arriving. I would buy them again if I liked the pattern of unlined curtains as was the case this time. They work really well to keep out excess light.

                                      I expected the top to be lining tape but it is normal rufflett so difficult to hang.
                                      Order and pick up service worked well.

                                        Bought for my bedroom as my curtains are very thin and 5am waking wasn't for me. Did what they said on the tin. Easy to fit to my existing curtains with curtain hooks and now my bedroom is much darker in the morning.

                                            Bought to block out early sunshine in the hopes to keep a toddler in bed a little longer :-)
                                            Price was right and I was quite surprised to feel the weight and quality of the linings.
                                            Dead easy to hang.. not sure what the other person was chatting about say that they were difficult and had to be sewn???
                                            Fit for purpose.. the room is like the middle of the night when its sunny outside!! yay!!!!
                                            I'm guessing they will keep out cold in winter due to the thickness.. double use.. bargain!

                                              I use these as curtains on their own. They give excellent black out from sun and heat. I haven't got anything negative to say about these curtain linings.

                                                After reading the reviews I was a bit dubious but I thought if I wash the blackout curtains by hand and am really gentle with them they would be fine. How wrong could I be! Like many of the other reviewers have found the curtains fall to bits straight after they have been washed. You could see the black through lots of patches where the white lining has just disintergrated. This product is not fit for purpose and should really be withdrawn from sale. My advice is do not buy these curtains!

                                                Impossible to attach to curtains as per the instructions. I have machine stitched them together which may be difficult for most people.
                                                However good quality fabric and they do the job as required.

                                                My online reservation didnt work - I received no email or text to confirm. Luckily Worcester store had some in stock.

                                                  These linings do all I want them them to, keep the light out and help reduce the heat coming in. They are easy to hang. The joy of curtain linings is overwhelming, they do what they are designed to do!

                                                    I bought these linings to use with bedroom curtains which were very thin. My grandson wanted a special design so we could not return then. They have transformed the curtains which now hang much better, keep out the light and also have improved the quality. Very satisfied customer.

                                                      These look like the heavy duty backing curtains that you get in hotels. They certainly do the job, cutting out all light. I'm a shift worker and sleeping during the day has always been a battle against daylight. With these blackout curtains its the dead of night all the time.

The linings are easy to fit and certainly do keep out the light. My 4 year old granddaughter did not wake up too early! Would certainly buy more if needed. Good value for money.

The ends of the strings were not stitched in at either end, but looked as if stitched at one end, so when I started tightening them, they came out at the other end and I am going to have to try and thread them through again. They are heavy so difficult to attach to curtains and especially to hang up. They kept coming out of the curtain hooks. However, if they had been the correct length, they would have stopped the light.

Other pair have been washed 4 times and still not soft. Make curtains stick out too much and can't be easily tucked behind radiator in winter. Have bought material in past and made own., Cconsidering doing this agin. But wasting about £30. Not good.

I have got a replacement pair which I have washed successfully but have not had chance to hang them yet so can't comment further.

These linings are attached by curtain hooks through both the curtain and lining tape loops. They may be able to be hung directly behind your tab top curtains, but advise to be as close as possible as not to reduce the effectiveness of the product. I hope this helps.
