[Home Depot] Two Pack 3 Layer Total Blackout 8 Grommet Curtains (52x84In Each or 104x84 In Total) ) $39.99

I was walking around Home Depot today and saw these and decided to change out my original curtains. No nothing super fancy , just functional.

This is a two pack of 52 x 84 inch Three Layer Total Blackout Curtains in various patterns with 8 Metal Grommets each. Seems like a decent deal considering most of the ones on the market usually require you to buy two to complete the set.

They are in a "HOT BUY" Standing Display where all the other Curtains are (at least for the Ellesmere / Warden Location). I can't seem to find it online but the Item number is 1001319220 and the UPC is 069556533486

100% Polyester / Backing 100% Polyacrylate / Flocking 100% Rayon

How does a guy mount these to actually blackout a room? The photo on the packaging doesn't cut it.

It'll help if you install a cornice box around the curtain rods to prevent leakage and get blackout rods that allow you to fold the curtains against the wall

It's very challenging because the light will go around the curtains. You end up needing to extend the curtains beyond your window quite far to stop the light from bleeding out the edges.

If you found a curtain rod you could use to really "snug" it to the window frame it might help but there will still be some light coming out the edges.


I'm curious what others have found - this is just what we have noticed in our rooms with direct sun exposure.

I've been working rotating shifts since 1997 and night shift is extremely hard to rotate into and out of.
You can't imagine how golden it is to have a completely black room. For those who don't know, 1 hour of sleep during the day is << 1 hour of sleep at night.
I've slept 7-8 hrs during the day and it would pale compared to 3-4 hrs of sleep at night. It's especially difficult in the summer months.

Anyhow, I invested in these a while back and they work amazingly well:

The only issue with solutions like these or anything that seals the window is there is a tremendous amount of heat generated on the other side in the summer months.
You can literally burn your hands trying to remove these during the day.

If you live near a Jysk, they have routine sales on curtains including blackout ones. I bought 2 sets of 55" x 95" blackout for $13 each on clearance. Check in store since many final sale items are not advertised online.

This is still a good price though.
