Blackout curtains?

I have an HT space in the loft. On the right side, there is an opening down to foyer which brings in a lot of light during the day. To counter this, I have installed a ceiling track to put on some blackout curtains. During this, I ended up putting this track on the whole right side which is almost 5 meters in length, and then decided to go ahead and added another 5-meter track at the back of the room to block out the windows completely. Now I need some good and cheap blackout curtains to run on this track to make the room completely dark during the day.

I was wondering what curtains to buy which won`t break the bank. I would need 10 meters of length and height can be around 3 meters. And in inches, it will be 393 inches in length and 120 inches in height.

Please suggest some blackout curtains?

If you're in US, you may consider https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DPGFMNB. Return seems easy (a visit to Kohl's.) You needs 10 feet high so you may need to be creative.

Or https://syfabrics.com/collections/ve...triple-velvet1 and DIY.

First one looks good, but with a rod, I do not know how I will make it work with a ceiling track.

Ikea sells blackout curtains, but it appears to be only in 98" lengths.

What kind of ceiling track do you have? For https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01B15K48K, you can just hang the curtain, right?

This is the one. Also because of I had used the other one, it would leave a lot of room on top for light to sneak in. With the one i have along with a pinch pleat curtain, it should block max light.

Not quite sure what your ceiling track looks like. Can you upload a photo?

My apologies. It was my terrible English.

I think you can use some strings to hang the blackout curtains to those small rings on your ceiling track. Or you can first hang the white curtain shown in your link, and stitch blackout curtains/black fabric to both sides of the white curtain.

If you looking for 100% blackout curtains then go for custom made to measure curtains. If you are in Dubai you can find those with 99Blinds. They will take the measurements and will bring the catalogues to choose your curtains home. I have recently done my curtains with them. Found very professional.
