Lightcatcher Curtains: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis The Lightcatcher Curtains with Insuldark will be a great addition to my daughter’s new “big girl” room providing room darkening, temperature and sound benefits.

materials

Lightcatcher Pink Dot Window Panel Curtains by Beacon Looms, my daughter’s new “big girl” room and a 2 year old who is starting to refuse naptime. About the Lightcatcher Curtains:

“Add creative style to your nursery window while keeping light and sound out. These Lightcatcher curtains by Beacon Looms feature Insuldark™ technology that controls light, thermal temperature and sound all through careful fabric construction and triple-layer protection. In addition, these Lightcatcher panels are appropriately wider than standard panels for an aesthetically pleasing look (whether hung higher or wider than the window) on top of offering full coverage for your nursery window.

results

My two year old daughter has recently moved from her crib to a twin “big girl” bed.  This is such a great moment, but it has led to her starting to refuse naptime at home.  We received the Lightcatcher Panels in Pink Dot to add to her nursery decor, but little did I know just how practical they are, too!

When removing the curtains from the packaging, you immediately notice the quality and thickness of the curtains.  I had high hopes that the triple layer construction with Insuldark would help my little one sleep again in her new bed so we immediately installed the panels which easily cover the entire window due to the generous width of the curtain. 

We live on a busy street, so the idea that the Insuldark could also muffle the sound was definitely of interest to me.  And with the first cold front of the season coming through now, I am happy that the panel should be able to provide a blockade for the cold weather.  After trying the curtains for one week, I can tell you that we love them!  The room is definitely darker than with only traditional blinds and the sounds of the street are indeed muffled.  While she isn’t perfect just yet, my little one has begun to settle herself down during naptime allowing for a longer nap. I can’t wait to get another set for my oldest daughter’s room which is the coldest in the house!

summary

I was very impressed with the Lightcatcher Curtains.  The look and feel of the curtains is first rate and they did provide a room darkening and sound muffling benefit.  I would consider purchasing these curtains for other rooms in my home.  One 84″ Lightcatcher Panel can be bought for $34.99.

    One set of two panels would sure make the southeast bedroom in our home warmer. It’s always cold in there in the winter and hot in there in the summer.

  140. I’d love to have the Lightcatcher Solid Lilac Window Panels and Valance set for our bedroom. The neighbors can be noisy — both very late and very early, so the sound muffling would be very welcome.

    If the sponsors are monitoring the comments for feedback, I had a really hard time evaluating the fabric patterns, because the “enlarge image” link still doesn’t let you really see the pattern. I was looking at the Lavender Jungle print wandering what animals are pictured, are they white silhouettes or more detailed drawings? Are they just standing there or are they posed like their walking or jumping or running? A close-up photo of the fabric would be a very nice option for online shoppers.
