I gave "ease of assembly" four stars, simply because I wasn't sure about it. My husband installed the blinds, but he had them up quickly and he didn't mention having any problem with installation. The blinds look fabulous, and so far are working great. I would highly recommend this item.
I love the blinds! I love the large slats and the ease of dusting them. The only thing that I didn't like and why I gave them 4 stars for appearance is that I ordered golden oak which in the picture was much lighter but they look fine and I wouldn't return them for that reason. You can't touch Overstock.com's prices and shipping. I will continue to shop here and I recommend Overstock to all my friends and family.
I bought these blinds for my new home to go with our mahogany doors. They look great together! They fit perfectly inside the window. The blinds were easy to install, just be sure to measure correctly~ I 'eyed' it and ended up having to drill a few sets of holes. (The next window we measured, and had no problems).) We haven't done the valances yet. I've gotten many compliments on them!
