These are very easy to install. They are also super easy to operate. My 3 year old no longer pulls blinds aside in order to look out of the window. He can now lift it up easily. He also is no longer in danger of the cord because these are cordless. I will say that one of the ones I received are a little finicky to open and close. I haven't figured out the reason yet but if I jiggle it a bit, it glides up smoothly again. These are not blackout shades. They do let light in but they still offer privacy and light filtering.
The first order of two blinds included one that was damaged (two of the honeycombs were stuck together). However, Overstock very quickly sent a replacement! They would be 5-star were it not for the one damaged shade. The shades were easy to install and easy to use. They include a plastic handle so I don't get finger grease on them when I want to move them up and down. I ordered a size 1/2 inch smaller than the inside of my windows and they fit perfectly.
These shades look wonderful. My only problem is that half of them pull down rather hard. The other half come down so easily, it's hard to believe these are the same brand. I don't understand this and unfortunately, the hard to pull ones are in the living room where they are used most.
These shades are beautiful and very easy to install. I was on the fence about what width to order... My windows are 35" wide but on one, there's a slight smaller width where the frame isn't even. I ended up buying the 35" wide shades based on the description that they are really "0.25 to 0.5 inches less than stated." It is true. The 35" wide shade is actually 34 13/16", including the end caps on the bottom bar, which fit my window perfectly.
