This shade is an excellent product. Very high quality, nice looking, fits the window perfectly, and was a snap to install. It moves up and down extremely easily and when closed blocks the "view" from the outside while still letting in plenty of light. This is important to us since we installed it in the bathroom! There was a small snag in that the shade came without the mounting hardware, but I contacted Overstock and they located the hardware and had it sent from the warehouse in just a few days. Overall I'm very, very happy with this purchase and with Overstock - again!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes, the color matched my screen display
- How is the quality of the product? Very good quality
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
The shade arrived very quickly and we installed it on Sunday, by Wednesday the string on the right side had broken and the shade has to be returned. I have seven other cordless honeycomb shades and I am very happy with them, unfortunately this shade was a disappointment.
The blinds were installed in our bedrooms. My son's room was very warm before the blinds were installed. His room is considerably cooler now. I ordered the ivory color, and it goes well with the color of my walls. I am very pleased with my purchase, and I will be purchasing more for the rest of the house.
I originally purchased the 34" shade in Linen for our master bathroom window, with the intention to cut it down to fit (needed 31", but Overstock didn't have the Linen color in stock in that size). I ended up using the shade in another room and ordered the 31" from the original bedding and bath store noted on the package, at a higher price than Overstock has it! :-( However, I'll be ordering 3 more 36" shades in Linen color from Overstock for the bedroom to complete the look - the color matches our taupe walls perfectly and their price definitely beats Beyond when it comes to colors other than white or ivory. These shades look beautful and function great - no cords! They provide medium light filtration (the color might have something to do with that), with full privacy. A note to those with questions about the mounting clips (2 included with this size): each clip has 4 screw holes, 2 on top (for inside or ceiling mount, 15/16" from the back edge) and 2 on the back (for outside wall/trim mount, adjustable 3/8" - 5/8" from the top edge); the holes are approximately 13/16" apart. Each clip measures approximately 1-7/32" wide x 25/32" high x 1-3/4" deep. The back of the plastic part of the clip protrudes about 3/8" but after mounting, the back of the shade will be about 3/4" from the back of the clip (thus allowing me to wall-mount it above our 5/8" thick top window trim). Hope this helps answer other buyer's questions about mounting. You won't go wrong with these shades!!!
Just got mine - they are great in my room - just as described in looks - width measuring guidelines were EXCELLENT - length measurent is an issue - but one question if others can reply here - will they fall out over time? My windows are 58 in long and I thought the 64 in length might be to long but they are NOT. - put them up yesterday and they are hanging about 1 inch ABOVE the windowsill presently - will the pleating fall out over time and eventually reach my window sill?Cousin in the business saw them and says quality compares to big names - he is the one who suggested they may fall out over time - my only issue is the length hanging above my windowsill but maybe that will rectify itself over time.
I bought these to replace similar shades that were always crooked. They are well-made except for the end caps that fell off about 5 times during assembly. They are light-flitering and not light blocking, but this is what we wanted. Assembly was complicated by our concrete walls, which makes drilling holes a chore, but if placed in sheetrock it would have been pretty simple. The clips that hold the shades are pretty forgiving, so that was helpful.So far, they are perfectly straight and work like a charm.
I have always used pleated blinds with cords. After purchasing the cordless honeycomb blind, I will never use any other kind. They are beautifully made, the color is superior and they work with a touch of your hand. I am going to purchase these blinds for my entire house
I purchased these shades for all my 1st floor windows in the house that I just purchased. The original window treatments were old mini blinds that looked tired and dirty so I wanted something updated and pretty. These blinds are lovely. They let some light in while maintaining privacy. They look great all by themselves or with curtains. They were soooo easy to put up and I am no handyman. A little pricy but well worth it! Also I love the cordless feature. It's awesome and so much more updated! Buy them!
