Getting a good night’s sleep can be hard to come by for many of us, and while a noise machine can help drown out loud neighbors until you drift off, bright a.m. sunlight can often jolt you awake before you’re actually ready to embrace the day. Linen curtains are good at filtering out some brightness, but what if you want to shut it out completely?

That’s where blackout curtains come in. Besides completely blocking out natural light, they can also help make your sleeping situation more comfortable by blocking out heat in the summer and cold in the winter (which should also help your energy bills).

So which blackout curtains should you choose? According to Amazon customers, the Deconovo Room Darkening Panel is one of the best you can buy, with over 3,000 5-star reviews and a price of just $12 per panel (plus free shipping for Prime members!) Each panel is designed with multiple layers of fabric and weave technology that completely blocks out light and even filters out noise (take that, barking dog!). And judging by reviewers, the curtain is a real game changer.

“These really don’t let ANY light through,” said one reviewer, who described the curtains as “TRUE blackout curtains.” According to another happy napper: “The sun doesn’t come in anymore, and my room doesn’t get as hot.” But this woman’s helpful comment really had us hitting Add to Cart hard:

“These are amazing at blocking out the light yet so beautiful you’d never know they were room darkening curtains! There is no tacky plastic stuff making the curtains stiff and ugly looking. They’re soft and very well made and look just as pretty hanging on your window as they look in the picture shown.”

The Deconovo room darkening panel comes in 21 colors, including a gorgeous yellow, so you can easily match the existing color theme in your bedroom. There are three sizes to choose from, but keep in mind that each panel is sold separately, so you’ll have to pick the number of panels you need based on your window’s width. And to make sure that not a speck of light dare enter your room, you might want to pick up Amazon’s room darkening curtain rod, which is built to withstand the heavier weight of blackout curtains and has rounded ends that ensure your curtain extends all the way to your window’s edge.

OK, we’re off into hibernation mode now…
