I have been wanting a fresh look for our family room for quite some time and these Roman Shades are the perfect answer. As for quality, although they are a less expensive shade than some but they are well made and DO NOT LOOK CHEAP. They are a true Roman Shade and not a rollup shade which adds to the look of quality . I was tired of the old heavy venetian blinds. The natural variations in colour are not only attractive but add an airy feel to the room. They are not a privacy shade and therefore I will be making curtain panels to use when privacy is needed as well as the middle of summer to block out light when heat is unbearable. They were a breeze to hang as well. I would recommend these to anyone looking to achieve a fresh new look in a tired old room. They were exactly as described and EXACTLY what I wanted .

This was a beautiful blind, but sadly it was damaged in transit, I have ordered these before and never had a problem, but this one came damaged, naturally OS took care of the problem immediately and I am always satisfied with this site and the way they handle these problems, this was a well built blind of great quality, Mine was just damaged by the carriers!

This is a great shade to upgrade to if you have been dealing with plastic miniblinds. Just be aware they are light filtering and do not block much at night if you have nearby neighbors. (Looks good from the inside, but looking in from the outside at night only- not much coverage. You could easily add a liner if needed)They can be shortened with a pair of scissors and a hot glue gun. I have not had a problem with width and while a half inch size may have been better, I just have sized 1 inch down and they still look custom. I have 5 of these now and have ordered them at different times. They are mostly uniform in color but keep in mind they are natural so there is subtle color variation. I would suggest if you had a wall were they would be side by side, order them all at once, but the difference is not noticeable on an adjacent wall. I have grey painted walls and white trim with natural hickory flooring. These look fabulous against it.

These shades really make a difference in our living room. They lighten up what was once a dark room. My fiance put them up and he said it was a very easy install, we mounted them on the outside of the window frame. All of the necessary parts were present so we didn't have any missing pieces. A few things though: The bamboo is pretty sturdy however the valance part that is connected on the top was different lengths on each shade and that was because the glue that was holding it together at the top came loose. It didn't fall off of the shade itself just needed to be glued back to the top so all of the valances were the same size. They are great for privacy if you are concerned about that. The back side of the shades have dark enough fabric so you can't see inside the house at all, we love that for our first floor room. The fact that they are cordless is so very nice too, we have a cat and don't have to worry about her getting caught or pulling them off the wall. Plus it makes the room look so much cleaner and pristine. I like order haha. I will definitely recommend these and we might be buying these for the 2 bedrooms as well. Our third bedroom has an odd width so I wish these shades came in longer widths to cover windows like that. Overall, great price for the product considering that they are selling these through Kohls for $130 each!

They are excellent, but unfortunately I had to return all 8 that I had ordered. I intended to install inside the window trim. For a 30" window, I ordered a 29" shade. They were 1 inch too small. Be sure to order the exact size of the window opening. I returned them all for a store credit so I did not have to pay return shipping. That was so easy! Now I am waiting to see if these will be restocked. I sure hope they will, because I really liked the sturdy, and beautiful natural look of these cordless shades.

These look fabulous in my studio. A natural fit, just as described. I received them much quicker than expected and for half the price I could get them at my local home improvement store!

We bought these shades as an economical facelift for a basement bedroom, which we are decorating in an Asian theme. We are very happy with the speed of delivery and with the quality of the blinds. They were easy for my husband to install, who is self-admittedly not a handyman. We love the natural variegated color of the blinds and the style which easily covers the mechanism. Very pleased with this purchase, and think they will last us a long time.

Needed a quick solution to a new home windows that could still be used with future custom curtains. The picture of the Dali shade looked perfect, I thought I may need to go a bit darker per the picture, but I'm glad I didn't as the actual color is VERY DIFFERENT. The true color is not nearly a light as the one pictured. It's much more of a ginger/cinnamon (lots of red/orange) color and much more solid and consistent in color - as opposed to the one pictured which seems to have a lot of different colors from an almost natural bamboo to a dark brown - none of neither end of the spectrum are represented in these shades. Like I wrote earlier, they're extremely consistent in color, not at all like the photo. Any we bought 13 of these shades, and they're all like that - cinnamon/ginger and solid color. I don't love the color, but for the price, it'll do.

We ordered these shades for every window in our house (19 in all). If you are worried about privacy, get a liner or find something different. We love the natural light and the way they make our rooms look. We have curtains in the master bedroom where needed and a pull down liner shade that is hidden by the valance at the top of the shades. Great Value, Great product!!!!

We were looking for some natural bamboo blinds that would allow some light into our very sunny dining room, but still allow us to see the view outside. We also wanted something that would go well with the various wood tones of our antique furniture and hardwood floors. These fit the bill perfectly and we are very pleased with our purchase. We're happy that these are made of sustainable bamboo as well. My husband is an engineer and thinks the brackets are well designed to be simple to install and adequately support the blinds. However, the wood trim on our windows is not very deep so it meant that the brackets over hang a bit. At first I didn't like this, but once the blind was installed it's hardly noticeable - just something to be aware of if you don't have very deep molding or trim to install them on (about 2"). The cords on the blinds seem to be a tiny bit thicker than some other roman blinds we have, which will hopefully make them more durable as we find cords tend to degrade in the sunlight. These are also available in two lengths, which is unusual for blinds at this price point, but great for us because we were able to order the shorter length for some of our windows and not have a thick unused portion at the bottom when they are open to the length of the window. As others have noted, these are a bit blonder than pictured and are not light blocking privacy blinds. This is fine with us and just what we were looking for.

We love our new shade. It's in our bathroom, and is very natural and well made.

I chose this product to give some privacy to a funky inner apartment window that's about 2-5 feet away from the same windows of my neighbors' apartments. I wasn't overly concerned with looks as the intention for buying this, though it looked so interesting (rather than your normal roller shade) that I thought I'd try it out. For one, it smells really good (that's probably an odd comment, but I was not expecting this. It's actually a natural product rather than just looking like one). It also looks surprisingly lovely. I am very happy with this purchase (as a note, I'm not regularly rolling this up and down, but rather leaving the entire shade unrolled/down---I think this will prolong the life of this item). I also really enjoy the color--- it's a medium deep color, and contrasts nicely with the surrounding wood.

These blinds are a great way to provide shade on porches or decks when in your outdoor area. These are a natural product, so don't block 100% of the sun, but that adds to the uniqueness of these blinds, in my opinion. Installation is fairly easy and was done in a jif. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for some relief from the sun in their outdoor space. ***

Quick to install and look great. We placed a slider that pulls the panels back, so you don't have to use the edge of the curtain. We live at the beach and have some rattan chairs in the dining area so these go great on the french doors to the deck. I love the clean and natural look. I have purchased rugs, pillows and lots more from Overstock and always pleased with their prices and quality.

This is the second one of these we ordered. They have natural beauty & smell, look custom made.

Used in a small Bathroom frosted window. Enough privacy if the shade is dowwn and the window open. Color seems to blend well with naturals, leaning to the green side. Looks very nice and you can not beat the price! Bought bamboo Roman Shades from Overstock for every room, but one. There I bought the cellular shade.

I got these for my bedroom and then got a set for my son's room. They have unique features and are very reasonably priced. We live in a city with great views, so I don't want people being able to look in my windows, but I want to see the mountains and the valley. So top-down means I can have my views but the lower part of the window has shade coverage. I like the natural light and I can control the view! They are also handling well the rough handling of a 4 year old who plays with the cords when I'm not in the room.

The shades allow low levels of sun light through, but the quality of the materials prevent most of the associated heat from accompanying it - which was my primary goal. Note that I also purchased a very light pair of draperies, more for color (and daytime privacy as needed), to pull across the shades. This provides the perfect additional sunblock for any guests wanting to sleep-in each morning, in the south eastern facing room (also a goal of mine). The price had me worried that the product would be flimsy, but it is not. The only complaint I have is the fact the shades do not "lock" in place while up; they must be tied off with the lifting-lowering side string provided. This is not a big deal for me, but does require the additional mounting of the metal anchor to hold the tie.

Shipment arrived quickly, easy install, nice warm feeling in rental apt. Color is warm and will easily blend in with any decor. Tenants very happy with shades, easy to open, close, blocks off strong sun light, yet, does not black out room. Nice touch. Ordered seven (7) shades and all match, color and finish-wise. Sometimes you can have variation in colors with natural bamboo.

I have purchased 12 bamboo roman shades from overstock, including two of these ginger roman blinds. I was suprised when they arrived to see that they were not ginger in color at all, but more of a natural wood tone....although I think I like that color better than I would have liked the color shown in the photo.Likewise, I was happy to see that they are really not room darkening blinds, they let light in, and you can see through them to outside. Likwise, you CAN see through them from outside at night.Despite those surpises, I absolutely LOVE them. I think they're beautiful and perfect for the room they're in. If you want a bamboo blind that offers nearly complete privacy, go with the nantucket (which also did not look at all like their photo) or the Montego. Both allow near total privacy and cannot be seen through from outside, even at night.
Window blinds and shades offer many benefits to homeowners. Blinds and shades allow natural light to fill your home, and they can also give you privacy and shade. Filtering shades prevent harmful UV rays from damaging your furnishings, and some blinds and shades help your home retain heat on cold days or prevent the loss of cool air on hot days. In addition to these benefits, these window treatments add a finished look to windows, and they come in a variety of styles to complement any decor.
The bedroom is the place to go to relax in comfort as well as to get a good night's sleep. No matter what style bedroom decor you have, choosing the best window treatments for the bedroom is based on function, appearance and design. First and foremost, decide if you want simple curtains or more dramatic window treatments to enhance the appearance of the room.
Enhance your level of privacy and safety at home by adding the fresh look of blinds, shades or shutters to your window treatments. If you work at night, have a high-pressure job or like to sleep late, blinds allow you to rest in a darkened room and refresh yourself from the demands of everyday life. Blinds and shades give you control over the amount of light in a room and also provide some protection against burglary. Peace of mind and restful sleep can keep you at your peak of wellness. This buying guide will help you choose the right blinds and shades for your window treatments.
With so many choices of window treatments available, you may not be sure which to choose. Blinds and shades have been popular window treatments for a number of years, but window shutters becoming more and more popular. Once you you have considered these advantages of installing shutters, you may want to choose them as the new way to dress up your windows.
Bamboo shades add texture to your windows, and they're an eco-friendly way to add privacy to your home. Bamboo blinds and shades come in many different styles, so you'll want to pick one that best complements your window. Whether you want traditional Roman bamboo shades that pull down to cover the entire window or bamboo blinds to let natural light into your rooms, these tips will help you find the bamboo blinds and shades that will complement your space.
Use curtains to enhance and customize your bedroom. Even if you already have window blinds or shades, curtains is an inexpensive way to create a cohesive look throughout a space and tie together a specific color scheme. Use vintage-style curtains featuring embroidered details for a charming look or hang lace window treatments for a romantic room. Gauzy curtains will catch the breezes during warm summer months, while heavy cotton window treatments will block out excess light and heat.
Decor trends come and go, but your bedroom lighting should transcend the look-of-the-moment to suit your bedroom's various functions. When planning bedroom lighting design, consider the space's natural lighting first, and then determine which parts of the room benefit most from general lighting, task lighting, accent lighting and ceiling fans.
If your bedroom has a dark tone or does not receive optimal natural light, you can use pine bedroom furniture to give it a lighter and brighter look. Pine bedroom furniture has a distinct advantage over darker and glossier woods because its lighter look creates a cheerful backdrop in a bedroom, whether you aim for a style that's country, Mexican rustic, cottage style, Asian fusion or shabby chic. Look below to learn how to lighten a bedroom with pine furniture.
Refreshing the paint, switching out textiles or using different furniture hardware can quickly transform a plain bedroom into a room that reflects your unique style. For a more comprehensive bedroom decor makeover, counteract the coolness of plain white walls and bland overhead lighting with a new coat of paint, furniture, accessories and finishes that create a cozy feeling in your bedroom.
Antique prints of wildlife, plants or scenic vistas are an artistic complement to any interior design. Antique style or vintage prints in subdued colors and sepia tones coordinate with both modern and vintage decor. Don't assume the entire room must reflect an era of days gone by when decorating with antique prints. If you want, you can mix modern and antique styles by coordinating themes, patterns and colors found in the art prints with modern accessories in the room.

Looking for a way to simultaneously brighten and dress up your home? Chandeliers are the perfect solution. Chandeliers are available with many arms, multiple tiers, and shades as well as with more simple designs and streamlined structures.

In the realm of home decor, the tenets of feng shui guide decorators to create rooms that welcome active and passive chi while filtering out negative energy. The Chinese philosophy of feng shui refers to how to keep healthful and positive energy flowing through your life. While some home design and layout issues are impossible to change, you can do many small things with your home decor to make your house feel more balanced.
Of all the things you can change about your home, doors and windows make the biggest impact. Start your home improvement project with a new bedroom door. When it comes to picking a bedroom door, homeowners must consider a variety of different factors. First, they must find a door that is visually appealing and matches the decor of the bedroom and surrounding rooms. It is also important to consider things like price, installation and special features before making a final selection. By balancing price, function and aesthetics, you're more likely to find the right bedroom door for you.
Over time, the kitchen has moved from being located in a separate building behind the house to a walled-off room inside the house to, finally, where it is today: the heart of the home. Most modern home layouts feature a kitchen that is open to a family room, creating a large area where family and friends can gather. Get creative with your kitchen linens and decor and enjoy a space that is both functional and pleasing to the eye. Read more about some of the most popular kitchen decorating ideas below.
They say the kitchen is the heart of a home, but in many homes, it's also the biggest source of energy waste. Kitchen lighting, refrigeration and cooking consume about 41.5 percent of the total home energy use; add space heating, cooling, and water heating to that total, and you'll see your kitchen is quite the energy hog. Creating an eco-friendly kitchen includes your choice of appliances, but it also goes beyond that; the floors, paint, pots and pans, and other kitchen items you use can make your kitchen eco-friendly as well.
