| Which of these darker curtains kept out the most sound? |
Whoops, sorry for ignoring this thread for so long. I shot my load and then needed some rest from this topic, I guess.
Unfortunately, "sound" is not something these curtains block as well as light; the Robert Eclipse that I finally settled on do block light completely, but block sound less so.
I think you'd need to either find the suede (heavier) curtains, or layer these curtains in sets of one or two together on one or two poles (heavy!) in order to successfully block sound.
That said, I am actually finding that the Robert Eclipse do a good job of minimizing sound. But I still tend to hear (a little bit of) sound thru them.
Layering heavier curtains would be the simple, cheap trick, I think.
