We’re moving full tilt towards the summer solstice, which means brighter, longer nights and earlier, brighter mornings. That can be nice, especially if you like hanging out outside after work, or enjoy the extra push to rise with the dawn. But if you (or your kids) want to go to bed earlier or sleep in, that extra sunlight can be a problem.

Enter blackout curtains. A boon to anyone bothered by bright light, they can turn sunlit rooms into a dark oasis. The only problem? They can often be drab and unexciting. If you’re willing to do some digging, however, there are some good options. Today, however, you don’t need to dig. Target is offering a buy one, get one 40 percent off deal on curtains panels and hardware online only. This deal is especially good because of most of the panels are already sold individually. Shop the entire sale here, and see our favorite picks below:

Aruba Curtain Panel, $39.98 for two (usually $49.98)

Not all beige is created equal. This one is more natural and less bandaid-colored, making it a neutral option that will vibe well with a variety of home decor styles.

Project62 Block Curtain Panel, $47.98 for two (usually $59.98)

It’s hard for white curtains to ever be completely blackout, but these do a great job of darkening the room while still bringing that crisp, minimalist feel. The color-blocking also provides an unexpected touch of flair often missing from blackout options.

Sun Zero Oslo Curtain Panel, $124.62 for two (usually $30.78)

Of course, if you want true blackout, these utilitarian options are a great choice. On sale for under $15, the vast majority of reviewers give it five stars for both quality and effectiveness. A dark gray option also provides the blackout effect with a slightly less extreme color choice.

Eclipse Rowland Curtain Panel, $36.78 for two (usually $45.98)

Here, a woven texture breaks up the solid look of blackout curtains, making it feel less utilitarian and more like a decor choice. Extreme blackout options like this also have the added benefit of muffling sound as well.
