I liked the look of these shades down, but, they didn't stack up in the up position the way traditional roman shades do. They actually rolled up like a roller shade. The overall effect in the up position was a very bulky appearance that didn't look good in the sunroom windows I'd purchased them for. There was no way to adjust the way they would lay since they were assembled on a very narrow piece of wood at the top. I sent them back for a refund.

We purchased a townhouse 9 months ago, there were no window treatments. The trim in this house is called 'Almond', not white so I didn't want to go with traditional 2 in faux wood white blinds. I purchased different styles of bamboo for 5 rooms! For the windows we hung white pull down shades for privacy and to keep out the light when needed. This style is in my living area, 2 windows and a set of french doors that lead out to the porch. I love the brown tones in them so much.I was concerned going with brown bamboo rather than 2 in blinds they would bring the rooms *down* color wise but they look so nice with the sunlight shining in. The amount of light they let in is perfect, I have gotten so many compliments from my neighbors. I read in the reviews these are not for complete privacy, I agree, they are not! From being outside and at my neighbors townhouse across from ours, I can't really see inside during the day but they offer no privacy at night with any lights on inside. Very glad we have the pull down shades behind them on the windows. I was going to get shears for the french doors but went with lined panels. Highly recommended, I can tell the shear curtains would not have provided much more privacy where I live. I have always had white blinds in homes where we lived, maybe its because we moved to FL, but I love the bamboo as much as the day we put them up! I would not go back to white blinds if they were free. My only mistake was I ordered them an inch too wide. I triple measured the openings of each window but did not notice to take into account the extra wood trim inside the window frame that is about 1 inch deep from the interior wood trim on the walls. If that makes sense. It resulted in us having to do an outside mount instead of inside like I wanted. Big positive on that is I am sure the roll down shades would not have fit as an inside mount if these had not been mounted outside. We still have stuff in storage, I ran across a cream colored shear panel the other day, I draped it across the top of one of the bamboo shades, like a swag, it looked great, it would be perfect if I could find my other shears! All in all, I love them, recommend them if you are wanting to try a different look, shear panels draped across the top looks so good with an outside mount. Shears can be economical, plus you can put up any length or color : ). My kids room has a bright green, found them on sale for $5 each at a department store.

It was great to find these shades at overstock with such a long length and many sizes to choose from. Instead of inside or outside traditional mounting we did this from above the window and they look great. Very stylish, love the color and really assists in reducing sun glare. We can see out but people cannot see in. The price was far better than you could buy even the cheapest of shades locally. With free shipping, always a fan of overstock.

These look great in the bathroom of our old house where I wanted something more traditional looking than metal blinds. I ordered white. They adjust easily and I especially like the wooden molding detail or whatever it 's called at the top. I'm not sure they are solid wood but if not they're some kind of wood mix that looks solid and attractive. I'm not sure why they call them customized though. They don't do anything to it for you - it comes in precut sizes.

I purchased 5 of these shades recently to replace traditional roll-up shades in bedrooms. I am very pleased with the high quality of the shades, how well they block light (completely!), and how easy they were to install. Overstock's prices were much better than where I had purchased some previously and I received them within a few days. I am an Overstock fan and will continue to be!

I like these shades. First of all if you are looking for opaque shades, these are NOT for you. These are translucent, not transparent, and they give some privacy but not entire coverage. I prefer them in combination w curtains. They are perfect for my transitional home; not too modern but not too traditional. They make my place look fresh and different. Different from the "standard white old horizontal blinds" all older homes come with. These would be great for a sun room also I believe :)

I was a little disapointed when these arrived. The color is much lighter than pictured. It is very hard to tie these so they look good hanging. I will stick with a more traditional corded style blind in the future. Not a terrible purchase but didnt blow me away either.

I was looking for a more modern way to cover my patio doors and found these. The color is just like the picture and you cannot see through them. They are a bit more delicate than traditional vehicle blinds, but as long as you do not man handle them, they are perfectly fine. You can open all four to one side, or open them in pairs. The price here is much cheaper than anywhere else I found. I am very pleased with the sleek, more modern look and definitely would recommend these.

Easy to put up, looked great in the room, and no one could see in and out when they were drawn. It is disconcerting how easy they are to put up and down. So worth the price and the look greatly exceeds tradition mini blinds
