There’s something about the sound of blackout curtains that brings to mind the word heavy. Since they block outside light much more than sheer numbers or blinds, that’s not surprising. But we like to think that doesn’t have to translate to bulky dressing for windows.

So when we saw that Quince—a favorite resource of ours for budget bedding—launched an expanded curtain collection, we immediately beelined for its 100% European linen blackout curtains. It is one of the few brands we’ve seen offer the option, and it’s certainly one of the most affordable, especially when you consider that the curtains are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. Plus the 48-inch-wide panels are available in seven soothing colorways, have a dual top treatment in back tab and pole top, and come in three lengths to choose from; that’s pretty expansive for DTC if you ask us. 

Quince Linen Blackout Curtains

While the panels retain the material’s signature light and breezy feel, they’re lined with 100% polyester, which provides their blackout opacity. “These curtains look absolutely amazing,” comments one happy purchaser. “They block out most light, but enough comes through that you can tell if it’s daytime or not (which I do like).” Another reviewer, who also highlighted the curtains’ color as “accurate to the picture,” adds, “The quality is great, and they truly provide the blackout coverage we were looking for.”

Two other new fabrics from the brand, a rich cotton velvet and radiant luster velvet, are also available with or without a blackout liner. Pair them up with the right hardware and—voilà! The finishing touch for your bedroom.
