Insulated Grommet Valance
Would recommend these, but with some warnings. . .
Several months ago I ordered 3 pairs of these grommet-top panels in terra cotta. The color and size were true to the description on-line. They are nice quality in terms of energy efficiency and really do look nice in our informal living room where they cover two walls of windows. The worst issue is getting out the creases from the way they are packaged. After using the dryer and steaming and ironing, I went ahead and hung them hoping gravity would finish the job. Although they are looking better, there are still crease lines evident in certain light. Last month I ordered an additional pair to add some fullness and these are the pair I rated here. One panel is just a slightly different dye lot. And although I treated them the same with dryer and iron there are stubborn creases remaining. The other big problem is the smell. For some reason this pair has a heavy chemical smell that has lingered for over a month. Those who are sensitive to such odors should think twice or be prepared to return them.
