You definitely need a drill with screwdriver bit to get the screws in. These do not have an in-window mounting option if you want to use the wood valance. So, we cut the edges off the valance to make them flush with our window frame. The finish chipped a bit, but we put some wood finish on those spots, so you can't really tell. They look great and they block A LOT of the light our old cheap vinyl blinds did not block! I am definitely glad I got them!
I love these blinds! They look and fit just like much more expensive custom blinds. Husband installed in just minutes. Fit and finish are excellent. Just ordered more sets for our sun room. Even though I ordered the latest set on Dec. 22, we received them on the 24th! Amazing service.
from the street. Made such an huge difference in the appearance of my home. I ordered 10 (ten) in Super white. The price compared to others is a winner in itself. Quick note... have assistance to hold one in the window prior to hanging with valance on, the valance is wider and depending on your placement of scews on the valance makes a BIG difference! Several of my valances where damaged (came in small broken pieces). I placed a call to Customer Service and now waiting for replacements, we'll see. Otherwise a great buy and easy to hang.
I am quite pleased with the blinds themselves and much more so in that I was able to do my whole house for approximately what only my bedroom would have cost from a couple of name-brand retailers that came out and did estimates. I would definitely buy them again and recommend them to anyone.
I recently purchase 6...that's right six of these wood blinds in cherry color for a very large living room...I priced 2" "real" wood blinds and could not see the price below $250 and had to special order them...meaning it would take a few weeks to arrive. The workmanship is incredible and the quality is superb...you will not be sorry if you purchase these blinds...HONEST!!! Thank you Thank you Thank you Overstock for saving me a ton of money...
