Window Panels for Your Home

When you've got the itch to do some birdwatching, you need windows to see outside. But if you've got too many windows, you'll have no privacy when the birds have the itch to do some peoplewatching. That's why we're putting you in control of who's doing the watching ... with window panels!

How well do you think these would keep the light out? I have a pair of suede like window panels now that keep the light out very well, almost like black out curtains, but they are getting worn out and old looking. These look nice for the price as long as they are dark enough.

Reviews on Amazon say they are on the lightweight/sheer side

84" = Floor length on a standard window.

"Window Panels?"

Whatever happened to "Drapes?"

Grommet tops suck. Can we get some tab tops or perhaps even legit drapes with the hidden hook attachments for rings?

The curtain rods were not a sale. They were the same price on Amazon, from Amazon. Search for Rulu curtain rod.

Worried about the accuracy of the colors on the solid color panels - clearly they've taken a single image and simply re-skinned them with color - that's generally not too accurate.....

You've been put on posting probation for this post

Good ol' internet cleared things up.


Drapes
A drape is a long piece of heavy, often lined, fabric that is hung in front of a window. They are most likely long enough to touch the floor, have pleats and hang from hooks that attach to the curtain rod.


versus

Panels
Panels are made of a light material and cut shorter than a drape. The curtain rod goes through the length of the top of the panel, and the panel is flat and unpleated.

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

Well then.

We've sure come a long way from college, when we just threw a tarp over the window.

Would love to see Woot carry some 108" panels. I don't live in a munchkin house.

Heard back. This is vendor art and the most accurate they have. Keep in mind that the colors can vary from monitor to monitor as well.

I am interested in the ivory sheers. The picture looks a little greenish to me. Usually ivory is like a warm color not so cool looking. Do you know if that is more of the true color?

Does anyone know the dimensions of the panels? Don't seem to see that info. I saw someone post 84". Is that accurate? What's the width of each panel?

I'm guessing you found the ONE sale where that info was missing. I reported it.

Each panel measures 40" x 84”

*Not* grommet top? Way to misrepresent the products, woot. :/

Why do people list their purchases here? Consumerist Pride? e-peen tape measure? Why The Frown??

Did anyone get the wrong panels? I got sheer rod pocket panel pairs, not grommet panels such as the picture.

Edit - I see others have gotten the wrong thing as well.

Will there be a fix?

Just received the above window drapes. Not only are they a grey- green color instead of blue, like I ordered. They also are NOT the same style as the picture that I ordered off of. Do I have to pay return postage for their screw up? I have been buying from Woot for 3 years and this is the first hiccup

Sounds like there might be a bit of a mixup.

I would write into Woot Member Services at support@woot.com and let them know. Be sure to include your username and order number so they can help you in a timely fashion.

Contact Woot, they will refund your money. I contacted them about the same issue, they said they were issuing a credit and I could keep the curtains.

I did contact them. This is what they have to say for now "Thank you for taking the time to email us. We appreciate your concerns as well as your business.

I'm very sorry about that. We have reached out to the appropriate staff to have this addressed with the vendor. I would suggest contacting us on Tuesday if you've not received an update from us by that point.

We very much apologize for the inconvenience. "

So we will see next week if something has been done.

TOTAL BULLCRAP!!!!!!!!!!!

WOOT how could you? I'm so disappointed I may never purchase anything else from this site. Amazon should fire you all and start over.

First off: I see that I'm not the only one that got the incorrect items. I also ordered the one with grommets and received the rod style. So don't even go there that this is a RANDOM goof.

Second: I ordered two sets and only received one!

Third: Why did it take so long to ship the wrong product?

Conclusion: WOOT is selling items before they or the producer have them in stock.

I did contact Support and sent in a second request this morning, as they have not responded since June 5 on what the resolution will be. Has anyone else gotten resolution on their wrong order of panels?
