If you’re a light sleeper, work a night shift, have a little one at home, or just want to drown out some street noise while you snooze, blackout curtains might be the good-sleep solution you’ve been waiting for.

Not only are they energy efficient (most lock in warmth in the winter and block out heat in warmer ones), but they naturally banish most light that stipples through regular curtains.

If you’re on the fence about whether or not these blackout curtains will help you catch better Zs, below we’ve rounded up seven of the highest-rated blackout curtains on Amazon, according to Amazon reviews. Better still, most are under $30, so it’s worth trying them out to see what works for your room and your budget.

3,517Average Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars"I have purchased a total of five sets of Deconovo drapes. I live in Phoenix, AZ, and it is a big deal to me to keep as much sunshine outside of my home during the summer as possible. These things block almost all of the light that would otherwise come in, and I have noticed a huge difference in my great room from the drapes that were there when I purchased my home..." - Amazon Reviewer

"These are perfect for what I needed. They are more "light filtering" than "black out" - so for those of you looking for a pitch black room, these are not going to do the job. The beige makes the room more dim, but not dark. The navy, which I used in our sons' room, definitely does make it darker. If you're looking for black out, I would literally go with the black curtains paired with black out horizontal blinds." - Amazon Reviewer
