Quality of product is amazing, drapes well out of the box, no ironing/steaming required. Thick and heavy, noise is muffled from street, but because the window is also another area of contention, cannot rely on curtains alone.

The curtain definitely helps block out noise, but I had higher expectations for the price. I could still hear quite a lot from the other side.

I ordered these curtains for our daughters room. We live close to a downtown area, in a historic home with original windows from 1903. We hear street noise throughout the day, but wanted something to help with the early mornings. While these aren't miracle workers, they get the job done nonetheless. It is tremendously quieter in my daughter's room compared to our room. I just placed another order today for 5 more panels! These aren't true white, rather a grey-white, but excellent quality.

I am satisfied with this product. It does not completely soundproof my room which faces a very busy street. I do feel it muffles the noise and blocks the elements of weather.

Awesome product. We live next to a bar that is both very bright and very loud. With these curtains in place the light is completely blocked out and sound is significantly dampened. 5 stars!

We are very happy with the quality, style and function. We looked for a long time for solution to our noise and sound. Going to a retail store was a huge waste of time. The retail stores drapes are cheap and don't weigh anything. The sales are worthless when discussing sound. Thank you for your great product!

It's a well made, nicely draping curtain. It is not really heavy enough to dramatically block sound, but that would require a vinyl inner layer. Still, it is a very well made curtain that probably does damper sound somewhat.
  • S. Susan

The price I paid for the curtains was comparable to what I could have paid in the department store. However, I find that the finishing on the curtains is nicer. The seams are well sewn and the bottom is left open so I essentially was able to get floor to ceiling curtains and that has helped minimize the noise.

My bedroom is a loft with a small stairway leading up - no actual door and no way to install one. I have two roommates downstairs. The sound curtain effectively blocked or muffled a lot of noise coming from downstairs. Of course, it doesn't block 100% of the sound, but it dampens it enough that now I can sleep in the morning when others get up and use the kitchen at 5am. It's also thick, high quality, and looks nice. I love it!

Excellent curtains!. I looked high and low for curtains that would be both blackout and noise reducing. I live on a busy corner, and there are always loud cars going by. I came across this website and ordered three curtains for three windows. I ended up hanging two for one window, and am ordering an additional three for the remaining two windows. These curtains do the job! They are complete blackout and so far, although I only have them covering one window, the sound does seem to be muted. I will update my review once the other windows are covered. Each curtain comes with an unfinished hem, but with double sided tape to hem it to any length. It also comes with plastic pins. I would definitely recommend this product!

"Great Product!. My client struggled to get a solid night's rest due to the noise level outside of her house. We research and debated a variety of options and decided to start with the most practical and affordable one - Moondream's soundproof curtains. There are two windows in her bedroom, I ordered curtains for one of the windows. My client was so pleased with the results that we have since ordered and installed curtains for the second window.

EXCELLENT PRODUCT!. We ordered this to keep in the doorway of our apartment entrance because our dog barks every time he hears anyone come in or out on our floor. We were hoping this might be a good way to keep him from braking but it was a risk as to if it would work in that way for him. BUT IT WORKS!!!!! The quality is excellent, the craftsmanship, materials & ordering/delivery all very very good. We are considering a second one of the doorway to the kitchen & I will recommend them for sure. As a recording artist I love the idea for my studio as well... REALLY EXCELLENT PRODUCT!

Outstanding product. Great service . This purchase was a leap of faith for me and it worked out so unbelievably well! These soundproof curtains are gorgeous. The workmanship is just superb. The seams are beautifully done. The soundproof curtains are double lined and the lining is high quality not cheap looking stuff like I was finding in equally expensive curtains. I didn't know anything about this company or these curtains when I ordered and it has all been a pleasant surprise. Great customer service help when I needed to change colors and the product I got is so far above what was available in the mall. Most importantly our guest room with windows on a very busy corner is quiet and dark. I highly recommend Moondream.

The measurements vary slightly depending on the type of curtains to be hung.


Choosing curtain height

The height of your curtains is the distance measured from the top of the curtain rail to the floor.
If you prefer curtains that do not touch the floor, reduce the measured height by 0.8 in (2 cm).
For a more decorative aspect with curtains that fall to the floor, add 1.6 to 2 in (4 to 5 cm) to the measured
height. Curtains that "break" at the floor accentuate the ceiling height in the room.
Whatever you choose, all Moondream curtains are delivered with a heat-activated adhesive band so that you can
adapt your curtains to the height you wish.
We recommend that you hang your curtains to measure where to place the hem.

Special case of grommet curtains
Plan to leave 1 in (2.5 cm) between the top of the curtain rail and your ceiling.
This space will be taken up by the material above the grommets.


Choosing curtain width

Measure the distance between one end of the rail and the other (not including decorative tips).
Remember that the stated dimensions always correspond to the flat curtains.
When taking the measurements, take the specific type of curtain attachment system into account.

  • For curtains with pencil pleats
    For a highly pleated effect, multiply the measurement by 1.5.
    Moondream curtains are sewn with 2.8 in (7 cm) wide pencil pleats.
    Once hung, you simply need to pull on the strings at each end of the pencil pleats to create the desired pleat.

  • For grommet curtains
    Moondream curtains are made with 8 grommets and the top of the curtains is reinforced and blind hem stitched,
    which means that they fall elegantly to the floor to add just the right touch to any interior.
    The diameter of the grommets is 1.6 in (4 cm).
    When the curtains are folded back, the width of the panel is approximately 5.9 in (15 cm).

How to find the best sound insulation solution for your home ?

Soundproof Curtains Buying Guide


What makes a good soundproof curtain ?

An effective soundproof curtain has to be made with multiple layers of different fabrics, be quite thick and heavy.
This means that lightweight curtains are acoustically almost ineffective.
Once hung your curtain will be more effective if pleated because this will improve the sound absorption.

MOONDREAM soundproof curtains are made with 3 different layers and weigh between 4lbs to 7lbs depending
on the length. They have been engineered to muffle the sound coming from the outside to create a more calm and
comfortable interieur. Their performance has been tested and certified by independent laboratories.
On average they reduce sound by up to 7db.


Will a soundproof curtain resolve my noise problem ?

The impact of a soundproof curtain depends of the kind of noise you are experiencing and the construction of your building.
If you’re experiencing for example traffic noise, construction or AC noise the curtain will help to muffle the sounds
but will not block it out completely because no curtain made from fabric is able to do that.

To begin with, motorway sounds are notoriously the most difficult to block since they are made up of mostly low-frequency
sounds. Secondly, the noise does not come in only from your windows but also seeps in through the walls and various
openings. Once in, the noise creates what's called a "rebound effect" - bouncing multiple times on the wall, the floor,
the ceiling. As you can imagine, it is entirely impossible to block sound completly with fabric curtains for your windows alone.

Soundproof curtains alone may not be enough, here some tips to improve their results: We suggest you to use double-sided
tape to seal the curtain’s edges to the wall. It will help to reduce sound migration around and the amount of
sound "rebounding". But keep in mind that, in order to achieve effective sound insulation, your room has to be covered
also with absorbent materials, as for example a rug or seal strip self adhesive foam on your windows or doors.


Can soundproof curtains block traffic noise ?

Our soundproof curtains have been designed to block the outside noise as much as possible with fabric.
The results depend a lot on the kind of noise you are experiencing and the results you hope to achieve.
To be more explicit: if you are experiencing constant traffic noise, our curtains will definitely help to muffle the noise
and increase your comfort level but any soundproof curtain made from fabric will never be able to block the sound to 100%.

The combination of the different fabric layers in MOONDREAM’s soundproof curtains will create a quieter environment
for you, but as explained above, the sound is also coming through the wall so reducing its “rebound effect”
demands further sound insulating measures.


Can soundproof curtains block voices?

Although curtains can't entirely block voices, they can help muffle sounds people make when they speak, sing, laugh, etc.
If you live on a noisy street with restaurants and bars, MOONDREAM soundproof curtains will definitely improve
the quality of your sonic environment and provide a significant noise reduction.

You'll still hear, say, the rumble of traffic but it will be muffled and softened - definitely easier on the ears.


Can soundproof curtains be used to block inside noise?

Once the noise is in your room, happens a “rebound effect.” This means the sound bounces everywhere across the room
(from the ceiling to the walls, and the floor). So how do our curtains work, and how do they absorb sounds to keep
them from echoing around the room?

Our MOONDREAM curtains are made with 3 layers (or 4 for our soundproof divider curtain). These layers are heavy and thick,
the main quality needed to absorb inside sounds. In a recording studio fos instance, on top of the usual soundproofing
material, they help to keep a "neutral sound".

MOONDREAM curtains have been tested in independent laboratories, and proven to absorb up to 9db of internal noise.


What are the different types of sound?

There are many different categories of sounds, from natural to man-made. In big cities, we are confronted to man made
sounds, often quite agressive. We try to find solutions to create a quieter environment and get rid of: continuous noise
(like machinery that runs without interruption), intermittent noise (trains, aircrafts, sirens), impulsive noise (construction equipment)
and low frequency noise (traffic). We are exposed to low frequency noise constantly. This is also the hardest type of
noise to reduce, let alone block. As such, to cut low frequency noise, the best bet is to mix different solutions:
soundproofed windows, noise-reducing curtains, rugs, etc.
