Sound Asleep Room Darkening Backtab 42" Window Curtain Valance

Make your bedrooms more comfy and conducive to sleep with the Sound Asleep Room Darkening Backtab 42” Window Curtain Valance, which accentuates the beauty of your setting with its sophisticated styling.

The tailored design of the curtain valance is made from textured chenille, which gives your decor a soft, romantic appeal. Chenille is a thick fabric that helps block light from the outside, thus giving you a dark room to sleep in. The valance’s fabric has a sound dampening effect, which helps lessen noise from the outside. You can choose the valance in different solid colors, depending on what suits your decor best.

The Sound Asleep Curtain Valance is easy to maintain. A gentle machine cycle in cold water and tumble dry at low heat is enough to keep the curtain valance clean. The valance can be ironed at warm temperatures, since its fabric is iron safe. The solid pattern of the Sound Asleep Room Darkening Backtab 42” Window Curtain Valance ensures that it can blend easily with most kinds of decors. The curtain valance is endorsed by the National Sleep Foundation, which helps people sleep better by imparting thorough sleep education.

from Highland Park, IL – Verified Buyer

I love these valences. The fabric is some sort of a tweed so it looks much nicer than just a solid fabric. They do a great job at room darkening. I have them in my bedroom directly over my bed and they block out the east morning sun wonderfully! I am having a bit of trouble getting the creases from packaging out. I have washed, pressed and steamed them, yet there is still a noticeable crease. I am hoping that it will fade as time passes.

Do the job beautifully.

from Utica, MI – Verified Buyer

I like the quality of the fabric. I was afraid it might be chintzy...NOPE! Very good quality. Blocks out the light perfectly. I used them in my dining room over my doorway. (I ordered two). They integrate together very well and couldn't be more pleased! Arrived before the estimated date. Deep creases due to packaging are difficult to remove but will most likely come out over time. Overall, very pleased.

Excellent Product

from Kansas City, MO – Verified Buyer

These drapes are wonderful. They block all light and I have noticed a drop in the temperature of room in the afternoon. This room has two west-facing windows and can get pretty warm. I wll order these again when I redo a bedroom. Super fast delivery1

Great curtain!

from West Monroe, LA – Verified Buyer

This curtain was exactly what I was looking for! I have a useless window above the door in my kitchen. All it does is heat up my kitchen when the sun shines in it in the evening. So I purchased this curtain in black to keep the light and the heat out. It fit perfectly, and it really gets the job done. Perfect for my needs!

really does black out!

from Raleigh, NC – Verified Buyer

I put these up in my kitchen which gets a little too much light in the mornings. Just this valance blocked out just the light I needed. They also look great - very thick and well made. They gather nicely too so buy one more than you think you'll need because it looks a lot better with more bunched up.

Like My Curtain

from Philadelphia, PA – Verified Buyer

Looking for a 42" curtain was a challenge. I thought I was purchasing a cream colored curtain instead looks more like beige. But I was able to still use with the decor. Love the quality of the curtain. Can keep up all year long. Material not too light or too heavy. The length and width was perfect for my small window.
