I have received the replacement set, however, have not had time to revisit installation yet. The first set arrived with signigicant damage as did some of the red roman blinds that were purchased prior to this (also having minor damages to them). All were shipped back and addressed promptly. Hoping this set is the keeper, they look lovely.

I thought it would be a blind, which means people could not see through it from outside. But it is not, because the slates are very narrow and a lot of light can penetrate. So people from outside can see through it when the light in the room is on, which give you less privacy.

Look very nice in the room, at first they didn't hang just right, The bamboo slates were a little bunched out in spots, But after hanging for two days, and being streched just from being used, they lay nice and flat, and even.

These blinds look like very expensive blinds I have had. Installation was very easy and the valance is a quality finishing touch. My only problem was getting all the dimensions. I vae narrow casement windows and I needed the headrail size and the blind size so I could mount them inside. It turned out they were 2 inch slates and the head mount was 15 1/8. They ft fine. My window is l6iin. Bottom rail is thick and looks like my very expensive custom blinds I have. Very Pleased

The blinds convey the look of real wood blinds from a far, but when you touch them they are definitely plastic or metal. The construction is cheap and a few of the slates came scratched. Luckily I had white paint to fix it because returning to Overstock is a real pain. The installation was easy for my handy man, but not something I could have done on my own. Also, cord on one of the blinds was also jammed, so they didn't tilt open or closed, but the handyman was able to fix it after some time. Decent value for money spent, but don't expect these to last for a long time.

I bought this one and the 'Rustique'. This one is lighter in color and has the 'woven rope' within the bamboo slates, which make the shade more 'pliable', meaning that you will have the optical illusion that the shade is not straight on the bottom, but it is.Saying that, I bought an additional 2 of these shades for my other bedrooms, and hung the Rustique one up in the living room.Definitely recommend it! Very well made. Much better than the metal louver shades I had that collect dust.I hung it up the first ones my self,...although it is much easier if you get your ex-husband to hang it up for you.One drawback, in the evening you can see in from the outside through these shades,...as if they are 'sheer' since it is not a solid piece,...I fixed it by attaching a great piece of fabric to the underside with a glue gun!

Roman shades never look as nice as you think they will. These are no exception. We'll be replacing these with shutters as soon as we get around to it.

These are perfect blinds since I purchased them I can not feel the draft coming thru the windows in my bedroom or bathroom therefore I had to order another set for my guest bedroom.

Unfortunately, this is one that Overstock cannot seem to get right. I ordered 3 of these blinds. 2 match and the other does not. The two that match are wonderful. They hang nice and have a 7" fold. The one that is different, has 2.5" folds and the grommets are different than the other two. They windows are all side by side so I need them to match. I contact Overstock about this and described the blind I needed, they assured me they would send out the correct blind. They sent me another blind with 2.5" folds (the ones I don't like or want). So now I have 2 sets of 2 blinds and still don't have 3 matching blinds. Not happy with the 2.5" folds if that is my only option.

Shade immediately made my bathroom feel updated. Looks great against white trim, and would definitely recommend to anyone.

We had temp shades in our master for a long time. I was debating getting custom shades made or ordering pre fab like these and came across these shades. They are ok looking for the price I mean they keep out the light and are gray in color but they do look a little cheap. And they have creases in them I guess from being packed so long ... Going to try and steam them to see if that helps. They arrived fast and my husband didn't have trouble putting them up. Just not the look I was going for I suppose

These are gorgeous and look fantastic...looks like I spent a fortune on custom Roman Fabric Shades. ***TIP*** When installing, be sure and use the included washers on both sides of screw or your shade will not fit in the bracket properly. We learned the hard way!
