Shade looks almost the same as pictured, but be aware while you are inside lighted room, you have a feeling that no one is able to see you thru this shade. Just step outside and you will see every detail inside the shaded room. I kept it, but purchased a roller shade and installed underneath for night time use, now I love my new shades!

Had a door that got direct sun every morning. This was an inexpensive fix and looks nice as my husband built a crown molding topper to cover the roller. Pros: Blocks the sun yet you can see out, speedy delivery, good price. Con: Could have been cut better as sides of shade are not cut clean-slightly uneven in spots.

These were a great price and work really well with my grey and white kitchen. Really helps with the afternoon sun.

I can't be more pleased with these bamboo blinds. I read a ton of reviews before buying and was somewhat hesitant when I read that you can "see through the blind". While that is true, we came up with a very easy solution. We had an old roller shade in another bedroom that we weren't using and it happened to be the same size as the bamboo blind. We installed the bamboo blind inside the window frame but as close to the front as possible (so the valance would be flush with the wall) and we put the roller shade behind the blind. I love the fact that I can pull up my roller shade and be able to see through the blind and when I want privacy, just pull the shade down.

Nice...and easy to operate, BUT they are easily jammed by someone who's unfamiliar and jerks it like a roller shade...and then it's unfixable.

The color and texture of the shade really does make it seem like this window shade is made of wood. Fairly light, easy to install, and gives me privacy when I need it. Truly a unique style that I’ve never seen before.

The top part of the blind is made of pure white plastic. The fabric shade part that comes down is soft gray in color ... I think it's because of the metallic black-out material inside. This white and gray color scheme works GREAT with my apartment. It's very sturdy, with clean smooth lines, and it doesn't look cheap at all. We have a door to the outside in the bedroom, and it has a rectangular window on top of the door (transom window), which lets in lots of light. Too much light for sleeping in past 5:30 a.m. in the summer! Because it was above a door, we didn't want to put in curtains, as they would get in the way of the door. We could have gone with a roller shade, but we decided to try this honeycomb cell blackout cordless cellular shade. The shade was easy to install, but you have to look at the diagram very carefully that comes with it. For installing flat against the wood frame above the window, install the bracket so it looks like an upside down L. The squiggly part of the bracket goes on the bottom (against the wall), and the smooth corner part of the bracket goes on top (that's the part of the L that is hanging out in space). You will need a drill (I used a hand drill) for drilling 4 holes into the wood frame. Then you will need a screw driver for screwing the 4 long screws into the wood frame. Also you will need a level and a yard stick or ruler or something like that for making your 4 holes all in line with each other and level, and for measuring where you want the brackets to go. They recommend placing the brackets 4 inches in from the edges of the shade. After you have the brackets installed, then you open the fabric of the shade up a little bit, center it on your 2 brackets, and then tuck the bottom of the top plastic part into the squiggly lower bracket piece. After you've tucked the top plastic part into both of the squiggly lower bracket pieces, then you snap the top of the top plastic part into the clips. Voila! Installed! Hurray! Now, how about the operation and functionality of this blind? Well, first of all, the shade slides up and down very easily. I just have to get up on a footstool to reach it (because it is installed above the transom window), then pull it down as far as I want it to go. Of course, I also have to move the footstool back to push the blind back up, but that's no problem. The few problems I have ... the little side clips that go into the bottom plastic part .... they don't stay in without tape. Right now I have them secured with some clear scotch tape. Hope that will hold it. The second thing is that the whole bottom piece, the part that you pull down and push up .. is able to slide about 5 inches off the end one way, and 5 inches off the end the other way. I don't see any way to tape it or hold it back in. So ... if the bottom slides out, of course it makes the blind look terrible. But the good thing is, all you have to do is slide it back. It's kind of annoying. I'm thinking about contacting customer service at overstock, because maybe something is wrong with the blind I have? Other than that, the blind works great. In my case, the transom window is about 35 inches, and the blind is 36 inches, so there's not quite enough overlap to block out all the light. There is still light that comes in through the sides. But it's OK, at least there isn't DIRECT light coming in on us while we're sleeping. The blackout of the shades themselves is not 100%, I'd say it's something like 90%. If you were to cover very possible light opening with these blinds (with no light bleed on the sides), I think you would not reach total 100% darkness. However, it would be quite dark. This blind is good (4 stars), and it's making a BIG difference for us.

Roller shade keeps the hot sun from warming up the kitchen in the middle of the afternoon and goes up and down easily. wish they had more sizes.

I have odd size windows throughout my new home so I was excited to find these at such low prices on O. They look great but are completely see-through. My boyfrind hated them until I put a white roller shade behind it.
