From the name itself, these curtains block not just the sun but also the view. This means you can’t see what goes on outside and vice-versa.

Ikea best recommends the HILLEBERG and BENGTA among others. The price ranges from 13$ to 65$ and these may vary depending on brands, types, size, etc. So, rest assured, peaceful sleep and 100% privacy can be all yours in style!
Room darkening curtains
For the more elegant look and dark and bold lovers, room darkening curtains work best. These allow sufficient light from out and still block out the view. Additionally, their fabric is much breathable and thin which gives a sleek and dark effect to the room. These are available in polyester, recycled polyester, velvet, and cotton. The recommended pieces are those of SANELA and HILLEBORG and others. Available in 2 different sizes viz. 140 x 250cm and 145 x 300cm. These are of a higher range i.e. between 26$ to 65$ and again varies on certain factors. Take your sleek pick from these fancy options!
Net & sheer curtains
If you’re a fan of light and design, then these curtains are for you! Net and sheer curtains are the soft ones made of polyester and recycled polyester. However, these are netted to allow sunlight and have beautiful designs and patterns. These are mostly used on doors and windows to fulfill the purpose of a curtain and also give a decorative look. Sizes offered are 145 x 250cm and 280 x 300cm. Ikea suggests LILL and KRONMAL. The prices are comparatively lower compared to others ie. 4$ to 9$. So if you’re looking for design and wanna keep the light coming, opt for the net and sheer curtains!
If you don’t want regular curtains and prefer those that suit your preference, go for panel curtains. These not only have wide options but also can be folded and installed as you like. These come in different sizes. They also are available in sheer, net, bold colors, and so on. The prices tend to be in the mid-range from 15$ to 20$. However, the price can also vary depending on the abundant options and types.
Light- filtering curtains
These are probably the thinnest material curtains allowing the most amount of light. Similar to the net and sheer curtains, the only difference is that these allow even more light and mostly leave out the designs that net curtains have. Also, unlike sheer and net curtains, these may allow viewing from the outside and inside. Ikea recommends MOALISA, MATILDA, and LENDA among others. Three different sizes here viz. 140 x 150cm, 145 x 250cm and 150 x 200cm. The price ranges are between 8$ and 32$ depending on size and brands.
