I just love this cellular window shade! I saw this shade in my dentist office and decided to begin looking for it. Ordering, delivering from Overstock was so easy.. Sun is no longer a problem for my west windows......thanks for my new cellular shades.
I was looking for something to replace old plastic slat blinds and this was the perfect solution. They are clean white and look good. They are easy to hang and best of all do not have any strings. A small plastic piece is snapped on the bottom. You raise and lower them by holding the piece. One of the plastic pieces was broken in shipping, but the manufacturer had an 800 number right in the box allowing me to make a single phone call. I had to leave a message as no one live answered the phone but they got back to me within a couple of days and shipped the part out for free. Not super high quality, but exactly what I had hoped for at a reasonable price.
I bought 3 of these shades and plan to purchase more. They look nice and neat and let a a glow of light enter through the window. The cellular design is really helping to insulate the house and the difference in our house's temperature was immediately noticeable.
These shades work extremely smoothly and are excellent quality. When down, they provide some reduction in heat transfer, yet let the room remain much brighter during the day than other shades. Highly recommend them. However, if you are used to trimming shades to fit your windows, these are not too amenable to that...so measure and select sizes carefully.
I once had a kitten that almost hung itself on regular corded shades, fortunately I was able to untangle him in time. Not a worry with this shade, it goes up and down at the touch of a finger practically, the light is able to shine through and you still have full privacy, will definitely use this product in the future in my next home.
