Need some shut-eye? These No. 1 bestselling blackout curtains are on sale for just $13 — that's over 50% off

Nothing makes a difference in a living space like new window treatments. Often they brighten up a room, but sometimes, especially in bedrooms, it's better to go darker — not just filter light, but block it. These Nicetown Blackout Curtains have over 90,000 five-star ratings — and with National Sleep Foundation's Sleep Awareness Week starting on Sunday when we spring forward, you'll thank us when the sun doesn't come streaming through your windows at 5:30 am. Right now, you can get this Amazon No.1 bestselling set for only $13!

This curtain set comes with two panels with dimensions of 42 x 63 inches. They block up to 99% of light and UV rays. They also reduce noise, thanks to the innovative triple-weave technology.

Why is it a good deal?

We haven't seen these curtains at a price this low ever, so our advice is to add 'em to your cart, stat. That said, even at full price they're quite reasonable, and if they're the ticket to better sleep, well, they're an investment that'll pay off in dollars and zzzzz's!

Why do I need these?

When the folks at Nicetown call these blackout curtains, they're not kidding. That's because they feature a solid black liner to make sure your room stays nice and dark, and your sleep peaceful. Maybe more important: They're also thermally insulating, which means they keep the winter chill out of your toasty-warm room, and allow you a cool summertime nap during the most humid July afternoons. Translation: Big savings on your heating and air-conditioning bills. And they're available in 38 colors!

We love these room-darkening curtains from Nicetown! Sooo much better than the ones we bought from Crapburg. (Amazon)

What reviewers say:

Over 90,000 Amazon customers are so impressed by these curtains, they've given them a five-star rating.

"I work overnight shift and it is hard to sleep during the day," gushed a happy shopper. "These help considerably and make my room look like it’s midnight. Highly recommend."

"These hide so much sunlight!" exclaimed another fan. "I can have the blinds open and curtains closed with zero light! Great for sleeping in, day sleepers or privacy. They also aren’t stiff like others I have purchased in the past."

"Game-changer!" wrote a rave reviewer. "I live in an apartment complex and face the parking lot. I have VERY inconsiderate neighbors that feel the need to sit outside in their vehicles for long periods of time and not shut off their lights. These curtains have provided the protection I need and also help prevent drafts."

"I would say it blocks out about 80% of direct sunlight and 99% of indirect sunlight," shared another happy shopper, but added a caveat. "This is not wrinkle-free fabric. I wish wrinkles would go away. I think they will after the first wash."

Want something lighter than black? These grey curtains will do the trick, but you can choose from 38 colors. (Prices may vary depending on color.)
