These bestselling curtains, on sale for $25, 'make my room look like midnight'

More than 92,000 five-star reviewers say they'll also block noise and keep your space nice and cool on scorching sunny days.

Nothing makes a difference in a room like new curtains. Often they brighten up a space, but sometimes, especially in bedrooms, it's better to go darker — not just filter light, but block it so you can get the rest you need. These No. 1 bestselling Nicetown Blackout Curtains have over 92,000 five-star ratings, and with the days as long as they are, you'll thank us when the sun doesn't come streaming through your windows when you're winding down. Plus, they're marked down as low as $25.

These curtains promise to block up to 99% of light and UV rays. They can also reduce noise, thanks to the innovative triple-weave technology.

Why is it a good deal? 💰

If you've been curtain shopping lately, you know how much these seemingly simple swaths of fabric can set you back. At well under $30 with the on-page coupon, these are quite reasonable, and if they're the ticket to better sleep, well, they're an investment that'll pay off in dollars and zzz's! (Prices vary depending on color and size.)

Why do I need this? 🤔

When the folks at Nicetown call these blackout curtains, they're not kidding. That's because they feature a solid black liner to make sure your room stays nice and dark, and your sleep peaceful. Maybe more important: They're also thermally insulating. Right now, that means they'll keep things cooler during the most sun-beaten summer afternoons — and when fall and winter roll around, they can keep the winter chill out of your toasty-warm room. Translation: Big savings on your heating and air-conditioning bills. Choose from over 40 colors.

What reviewers say 💬

Over 92,000 Amazon customers are so impressed by these curtains, they've given them a five-star rating.

Pros 👍

"I work [the] overnight shift and it is hard to sleep during the day," shared a happy shopper. "These help considerably and make my room look like it's midnight. Highly recommend."

"I live in Texas, and it has been a hot summer, so I really wanted to get some curtains," explained another fan. "They work well for both, and even when the light is coming full force at the window, it's nice, dark and cool in the rooms. The material feels nice and sturdy."

"Game-changer!" wrote a rave reviewer. "I live in an apartment complex and face the parking lot. I have very inconsiderate neighbors [who] feel the need to sit outside in their vehicles for long periods of time and not shut off their lights. These curtains have provided the protection I need and also help prevent drafts."

Cons 👎

You may have to give these a little TLC to smooth out the fabric. "My only complaint is they are not wrinkle-free," shared an otherwise content reviewer. "I even ironed those bad boys, and [they] still won't come out. ... I do admit — they have been up one day, so I am hoping gravity will take its course and work the wrinkles out. Otherwise, I am going to have to steam them out." (Psst: Several reviewers mentioned that steaming did do the trick!)

"I only wish it came with a curtain tie," wrote a final buyer, though they also referred to the curtains as "literally the best."

Want something a little more colorful? These aqua curtains will do the trick, but you can choose from over 40 hues.

Oh, and if those pesky lights on your devices and appliances are keeping you awake at night, these are a quick fix.

Each pack includes over 100 stickers in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit over different lights, whether you want to reduce the glare from your alarm clock, microwave, power strips or tech gadgets. Some people even use them to cover the cameras on their laptops as a safety precaution.

"They work!" summed up a relieved reviewer. "I have several devices in my home that have eye-piercing operating lights on them, including some in my bedroom. If I get up at night, they wake up my brain too much, but I did not want to cover them with something opaque, as the lights are the only way to know if something is on or not ... love this easy and inexpensive solution to an annoying problem."
