If you are mounting inside the window casing please subtract 1/4 inch to 1 inch from the measurement to ensure the blinds will fit properly. For example, if your window casing is 34 inches wide, you would order a 33-inch blind since a 34-inch blind may not fit or would rub against the sides of your window.
Overall, I am happy with the real wood blinds. They look attractive, and seem to work reasonably well. I ordered these in oak, after deliberating for some time whether the oak or red oak would be better. I wanted the blinds to complement my flooring, which is oak. The oak color is a warm one, and fairly close to a red oak, even though it's just the oak color. They're a little lighter than I expected, but that's OK with me. I wasn't expecting a match, I just wanted something that would complement the floors.
The quality, overall, is good. I am a little concerned about the cords, but as we don't open and close the blinds much, it should be fine. They seem a little flimsy, but are probably OK. My husband seemed to have no problems installing them. We cut the valances to fit inside the window frames, as we mounted the blinds inside them. It looks nice and finished. I wasn't too excited about the scalloping on the edges of the valances for the outside mount (not my style). Make sure you measure all windows, and measure the width at the top and the bottom. While my windows look like they're the same size, they're not completely square, and one window was about an inch wider than the others. The house is about 20 years old, so it's not as though it's a really old house. They're definitely worth the money, and a fraction of the cost of getting blinds made by one of the fancy blind places.
Great blinds! Very easy to mount. You can go between inside and outside mounts pretty easily. The price for these blinds is great considering home depot charges 20-30% more for faux wood blinds that don't even have all the colors. They make almost any size: I had 3 different sized windows and after ordering them for the first two, to see how they would look and how the fit was, I instantly ordered more for the rest of my windows. They look great, I had to shorten the top clip on wood piece to work with an inside mount. I used a small handsaw and it was really easy, took about 10 minutes. If that is not for you its not a deal-breaker since it still looks great without the top aesthetic piece or you can just do an outside mount and it won't matter. They look great! I think this is the best DIY solution.
