The shades are fine, albeit, completely see-through. Overall fit and finish isn't great, but you get what you pay for, right? Hardware isn't great. Installation was quite difficult and required quite a bit of chiseling out of the window frame molding. I assumed, incorrectly,that a 29" shade would be around 28.5" or so to fit a 29" opening. The actual shade sizes varied a bit, but all were right around 29" where it hangs. Add to that the internal mounting hardware adding another 1/4" or so and, well, you see the issue. Additionally, the bamboo shading that hangs down varied more widely and was equal to, or exceeded the actual width of the shade mounting, so when mounted on the interior of the window, the shade itself was slightly wider in places and required me to trim some of the bamboo so that it wouldn't bind up in the window frame.. Lastly, one shade arrived damaged. Overstock customer service replaced it at no charge. Thank you. Overall, probably wouldn't purchase these shades again.

Great " roman" shades. Let in a little light, but private enough. Only complaint are the screws sent to assemble brackets...poor quality...use your own and all is good!

Purchased to use in home where neighbors are close enough to see what one is eating. Most neighborhood homes (mostly rentals) are using mini blinds, but keep them closed all day. I used these to give some daytime privacy, yet let light in and to be able to see outside. For total privacy, these require another window treatment for night time e.g pulled drapes. Most of the reviews said the color matched the website, but I thought they looked lighter than I expected. I was a little disappointed with the color,but I ordered eight blinds in four different sizes and all the blinds were exactly the same color and exactly the size purchased. If the size ordered was 29", then that blind was exactly 29"...... No allowances. I thought this was a good quality, but helpful to pass on. The blinds looked like they had been cut to order. They are made of a natural material, so there are "flaws"just as wood has knot holes, however that is part of its character . They come with extra strips of bamboo material to attach to the sides of the blind when mounted on outside of window, exposing cut edge. The strips are long enough to hang down to edge of valance. We are going to cut them to cover just the cut wood end, I think.

The chain mechanism is really nice as opposed to the type you used to have to jerk down. Having it mounted exactly level is required or it doesn't spool in correctly. We have a window where the sun goes down and will blind you. This did the trick. You don't get blinded, but can actually still see out the window. Just know, that pulling this shade at night doesn't keep people from seeing in entirely. We live in the country so it's not a problem. We love this product.

I ordered these because they were one of the few that would fit on a French door. Installation required us to drill straight into the door which I didn't love, but will work. They provide some privacy and block some light. You can still see through to the outside a bit and some light filters through. They are very good-looking and overall I'm satisfied with their appearance.

I ordered a cheaper set of bamboo white blinds last winter that I admittedly like better than these for 2 reasons: They were much cheaper, but still excellent quality and they have a nice wooden wand to open and close the blinds instead of all of the strings dangling. These real wood blinds cost quite a bit more but fit my windows perfectly and are very nice looking. They also have a nice crown molding style valence which requires a little fidgeting and some caulk to hide the seams but they do make them look a lot fancier than a cheap set of blinds or faux wood blinds for sure. I would recommend.

This item looks very nice. Not as nice as the bamboo blinds I ordered last winter but still good quality. I like the crown molding style valence, looks more finished but does require some caulk to hide the seams. Too many strings dangling, a rod to open and close would have been a nice touch.

Such a wonderful bargain! Very happy with purchase. Exceptional pricing, quick delivery, good description and instruction, product easy to install and the shade fits right. No extra effort is required if the length of the window is shorter (i.e my window is 70 in. X 39 in.).
