This blind is is a great value for the price. One note about the color: it has a reddish hue just as you expect cherry furniture to have. It is not overly red as other reviewers have suggested. The picture is quite accurate of the color. I think the brown shade wall paint color in the pic may make the blind look more brown than its true cherry hue, If you block the wall paint color and hold something with room color(s) you plan to have where you plan to use next to the blind, you can get a better idea of how the color will work for you. About sizing: there was no info re sizing the blind to the window. When looking for blinds online, other options usually gave you sizing info, such as opt for a blind size one half of one inch less than actual window, etc. We even called customer service to ask about sizing this blind, but they did not have info, not for being negligent, but just because there is no sizing info available for this blind. We decided to get a blind slightly smaller than the window opening measured (for fear that the blind would be too big along with the hanging attachments needed inside the window if we got the blind with the exact measurement as the window opening). But the blind was almost too short to even hang in the hanging hardware once attached. My husband made it work for the 2 windows he hung the blinds in, but it was not the best fit; the blind covered the window, but if jiggled a lot or moved too much, could easily slip out of the hanging hardware attachments. Therefore, we would recommend buying the blind size that your window opening measures exactly! We had a 35" opening and purchased 34" blinds, but the 35" blind would/should fit better. We originally ordered 3 blinds, but after hanging the first 2 in one room and seeing the size issues, we returned the third blind to be used in another room and ordered a larger 35" blind. Customer service was excellent, the return process went smoothly (still have to wait to get refund to credit card) so far, and the newly ordered blind was received extremely quickly, just as the original order was quickly sent as well. I order a lot of stuff online, and this was some of the fastest turn around I have received on an order. We have ordered with Overstock before and have never been disappointed. When the third blind is installed, we will report back if it does not fit better. But our best advice for now for selecting a blind size is to order as close as possible to the exact size of the window opening (if fitting INSIDE the window).
Purchased four to match the wood trim in the same paint color used in the family room after remodeling. We didnt want to hide the stained trim with drapes. I was concerned with using wooden blinds and not expecting much, but the quality is outstanding and exceeded my expectations. Color was absolutely correct. The blinds were very easy to install and only took minutes. I highly recommend this product. Only wish I could find a longer set in the oak color for the kitchen.

These blinds appear nearly bright pink when you first open the box. If you are looking for a dark rich cherry finish then these will not work. Otherwise, they are an excellent value and look great when installed. I did custom cut them to fit my window by using tin snips, a hacksaw, handsaw and elbow grease. Ultimately quite happy for the money.
The quality is of the product is good, I'm just not a fan of the color!! They are very red...When I read that it was a cherry finish I thought it would be a deep brown with a hint of red (like a cherry finish wood), but they look maroon... I'm keeping them, because you can't beet the price!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not great... They are not what I would consider a "cherry finish..." It's more like a maroon/red color on wood.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is great
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty good
Given the extremely reasonable cost for these blinds, I was prepared for a much lower quality than I received. The color is terrific and looks high end; installation was super-easy and the blinds are sturdy and well-finished. As I makeover other rooms in the house I will definitely shop for these again.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was as represented
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality, especially considering the bargain price
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was accurate
This item looks great it was a little difficult to install as it was not tolerenced as accuratly as one would expect but then again it was inexpensive and made in china. The first blind was ok the second blind had a broken wand so the slats could not be opened or closed. Overstock had a replacement to me within the week week and it works fine. Being plastic I hope it lasts.
I ordered these and another type of blinds (depending on the window size) for my entire house and I'm really, really satisfied with them! The price can't be beat and they look exactly like other much more expensive wood blinds. I'm sure they last forever...my first sets are over two years old now and still look great! I just had to replace one because one of my dogs decided that they are also delicious! As far as I can tell, there is no fading or any other problem! I definitely recommend these blinds!!!
Chose these blinds to use under curtains in my bedroom. I specifically wanted to avoid plastic and vinyl so took a chance on this modestly-priced all-wood product. It looks great and performs beautifully! Easily rivals more expensive blinds and the color is lovely as well.
I purchased 5 of these blinds for my bedroom and words cannot express how pleased I am that I did. I saved about $300 by buying them from Overstock.com; they were extremely easy to install & look great. I will continue to spend my money here.
