I have purchased these shades twice for different parts of the house. The black is very room darkening. The white lets in a lot of light even when closed. I purchased them for privacy and like the fact that they can become a solid with perfect privacy or that they can be adjusted to let you look out. They are unobtrusive when fully retracted.
I really like the look and feel of this blind. Much nicer and chic looking over the classic mini blinds that every one else has. The only down fall is they are too short for all of my windows. They would have been half the cost of the regional big blind company that I received a quote from!
These looked great; however I couldn't use them because I needed a size more wide and they don't have it. I couldn't fit the curtain inside the window seal because it wasn't deep enough. So I really needed one to fit over the window seal but they didn't have a size wide enough. The quality seemed really nice. I'm sad they don't have the size I need.
Simple, sturdy-looking window shades. Pretty cool that I can control the rollers to set how much of the sunlight is let in or blocked out. The room does get noticeably darker with these shades installed, which was what I was aiming for (See below link for a picture of the shades). Wishing it came in longer lengths, however, as 36 for max possible length is still too short for some of my room windows. Satisfactory delivery though.
Great shades. Easy installation (Attach the cassette header to the edges of the window), a child-safety feature (I have no child myself but I am sure this is a bonus for families), and simple design. This shade fits nicely in my room with white walls all around. Does its job as a window shade to filter unnecessary sunlight during the day, and gives me privacy from outside view. The duo-roller feature also gives me more control over how much of the window is covered. Good deal for the price considering a lot of custom-made shades are very expensive. There is a sale going on for this right now. Get it while it's still available!!
I order these shades, but in turn received something completely different. I was so disappointed. When I asked for a refund of some sort, I was only credited $**. My husband surprised me, so I couldn't take them down and return them. The shades they sent to me are just plain white (naturally, not as expensive) I am very disappointed :(
While I don't see what "wood" has to do with their look, I think these blinds are pretty cool. I've never seen any like them before. Basically they are stripes of white that give complete privacy (but not blackout) when the stripes are side by side and sort of look like open louvers when the stripes are on top of each other. (It's hard to describe) So far, so good.
