Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good! These curtains are a lovely neutral colour, quite heavy considering they are not lined, and represent very good value for money 03 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by brilliant quality I bought 6 pairs and shortened them to fit my caravan windows then made tie backs with the cut offs. great quality for the price. john lewis never disappoints :-) 12 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value These serve a good purpose as door curtains. Good neutral colour. Great with ready made thermal linings. 03 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect curtains I bought these for my front room I am very pleased with them. I adjusted the length and lined them. This made them hang even better and they now have the apprearance of even higher quality curtains. The material is good and the colour is a pleasant natural shade. 18 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent We moved to France last year and had loads of new windows needing curtains. I have bought these for our last house and new they would be great. They are a really good neutral shade and a good weight, any creases have dropped out in a few days. John Lewis delivery to France was excellent, 3 days from order to doorstep, I would recommend these curtains to anyone needing a temporary solution or a casual, economic and simple unlined curtain. 05 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value Bought these curtains for a spare room. They do what it says on the wrapping. For something basic, excellent quality and very good value for money. 07 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for dressing the windows Cheap and cheerful but in their simplicity, they look great and complete the dressing of my lounge windows. Very thin but they won't be drawn and weren't bought to block out the light - just to look good which they do. Really pleased with them. 22 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Affordable value. I purchased these for our bedroom. Overall really good value! Excellent John Lewis quality. Thank you. 23 November 2013
