I ordered pecan and the first blind looked as expected. The second and third however looked nothing like the first. There is a sticker which indicates wood tone may vary. This is not a wood tone issue. This is an inconsistency in either the batches of stain or the number of coats being applied. Still a great value but I may return and try to get a more consistent batch.
These wood blinds in golden oak look beautiful in our house! Everyone compliments them.

These blinds are a very nice quality. In addition they came with a three sided wood valance instead of just a face plate. It gives them a nice finished touch. They were easy to install. Do pay attention when they suggest ordering 1/2-1 inch smaller than the space. We went 1 inch smaller and the fit was perfect.

Have had these a few years now and they still look great like new...so many people want to know where they came from. Total privacy when closed with no gaps. They were easy for me to put up with two options. The fit was perfect as ordered. They appear to be unphased by the hot south sun shining in on them.

These blinds are gorgeous! I am in the process of replacing my older wood blinds with these and I am so glad that I purchased them. They have a wonderful rich color (pecan) and have a nice slick finish so that dusting them will be a breeze. I am a woman and these were a breeze to install. Can't wait to finish out the rest of the house. Buy these and you will not be disappointed.
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.
I purchased these blinds to fit inside a 30 inch window. From the description it seemed that I would be ok with ordering a 30 inch blind since it said they could be used for inside or outside mount. The blinds arrived and were too long!! Only by about 1/16 of an inch but enough so that they wouldn't fit in the window. I was able to mount them by bending the top bracket but it wasn't easy. I was just in a rush to get them up and didn't want to deal with sending them back. Be careful when ordering!!
This is a fantastic product. I first ordered three and then recently another two for two more windows. They are impressively good quality for the price, I looked far and wide and do not think there is anything on the market that rivals these in quality/ value. Easy to assemble, assuring that your windows are not like mine, all 1/8" to 1-5/8" in variations due to turn of the century building construction. Even then, still manageable. Excellent product.
Good quality blind--looks custom. It comes with a nice wide decorative valance. This valance was a little bit more difficult to assemble. If you use the outside returns on the valance, you have to screw them together with a bracket and tiny screws. You also have to use tiny screws to attach the valance mounting clips (which then hang on the top mount of the blind). It's not as user friendly as other brands of blinds I've assembled, but the end result is a great looking blind. The decorative wood toggles on the blind tilts are also nice compared to other cheaper looking plastic toggles or rods.
I bought these blinds for our fist child's nursery. I wanted a certain look and wood was what suited our tastes. After splurging on these I got them home and was pleasantly surprised. I do feel like I got my monies worth. I will be buying one window at a time and replacing all the cheap blinds in my home.
I purchased these blinds to replace old white plastic ones that came with our house. They block so much more light and look great! My husband installed them and they were easy for him, but I would have had a hard time on my own, as he had to cut the trim to fit our windows. I definitely recommend these blinds! We will be ordering more of the same for other rooms.
