I ordered a cheaper set of bamboo white blinds last winter that I admittedly like better than these for 2 reasons: They were much cheaper, but still excellent quality and they have a nice wooden wand to open and close the blinds instead of all of the strings dangling. These real wood blinds cost quite a bit more but fit my windows perfectly and are very nice looking. They also have a nice crown molding style valence which requires a little fidgeting and some caulk to hide the seams but they do make them look a lot fancier than a cheap set of blinds or faux wood blinds for sure. I would recommend.
We purchased 2 mahogany blinds for our living room. Our color scheme is a light grey with accents of yellow. I really like the warmth and dark contrast they bring to the room. Once they were finally up (took us over 2 hours) we were impressed with how little light and increased privacy they created. The cords are excessively long and I caution parents with small children!!! We would purchase more for our new home.
I took these out of the package and thought, darn, I ordered the fake wood blinds, then got on site to see my order and I did order the REAL wood blinds. I guess I could be wrong, but ends are exposed and it sure looks like press wood to me. Yeah, kiln dried, then pulverized and glued together as press wood. Maybe a white wouldn't matter, but I tried to buy the good stuff for the dining room and this just looks crappy. Sending back.

The quality of the blinds was actually better than I expected. The color is true throughout with a nice finish. A light dusting with wand type duster is all it takes to make them like new again. The wood valance was a surprise as I was not expecting such a sturdy piece. The valance came in 3 pieces with hardware to put it together and it was a breeze to assemble. After that, it hangs on the blind but gives the appearance of being attached to your wall or window frame. Unlike the mini-blinds that most people have, this blind looks expensive and rich.
These blinds are beautifu! They are exactly what I was looking for and the quality is excellent. They added the elegant touch I was seeking when I renovated my kitchen. I had to purchase separate nails to install them inside the wood window frame but they fit perfect. Overstock never disappoints, this is yet another great purchase!
I really loved these blinds - easy to install, the pecan is a beautiful brown color, they look great! However, you get what you pay for. The slats themselves are lightweight and super-thin, so much that one of the bottom slats chipped within a few days (I guess from closing them too quickly??). Also, one of the slats was warping/bending on the end, it is not close to any humidity or water environment like a bathroom, and when I tried to very gently see if it could be straightened, the end completely snapped off. So they are pretty, but not the best quality. And note I have had them a few months, so perhaps the other positive reviews were from people who wrote them shortly after receiving them.
I am thrilled! I had shopped in several local stores for the particular size blind I needed and was faced with custom ordering, at a custom price, what I was looking for. I just happened to check Overstock.com and couldn't believe they had the EXACT product and size I wanted. AND, they were HALF the price, delivered in three days, a perfect fit, and easy enough for me to install myself. I am so happy with the product, the process, and the price!
I had two concerns about these blinds. The color would be TOO bright and the blinds would be too wide for an inside mount because I didn't adjust the 35" inside measurement by the recommended allowance. To my surprise, the color is great and by adding a 2 1/2" strip of oak under the inside window trim (which was only 1/2" wide) I had a perfect 35" X 2" area to mount the blind. The brackets were placed at the very outer edges of the oak strip and allowed for a perfect fit. I'm thinking of getting more blinds for my office next.
We were so scared to order blinds without seeing them but to our delight, the blinds are beautiful and a perfect fit. The wood quality is exceptional and we are already ordering for our other two front windows. Our experience with this company and their product was a perfect one!
The blinds look gorgeous and expensive in my kitchen - great quality, color and texture. Just be aware that cornice is for outside mount - bigger then you need for inside mount. We had to install blinds really close to the edge of the window (inside mount), so cornice could be outside to complete the look. For us it was perfect.
This was the 11th set of blinds I have ordered from this company. Shipping is extremely fast and installing them is a breeze. The look is gorgeous and it makes such a huge difference to the look of the rooms. Some of my windows were very long and thin. At home improvement stores, I would have had to special order them and it would have cost a fortune. But here, they make them any size you need and such a great price! I would highly recommend and don't hesitate about ordering blinds from them.
These were an okay value. They look nice, and the mechanism that opens/shuts the slats moves smoothly. The mechanism that lifts/opens the blind is really skimpy for a blind this heavy. My husband did the initial installation at our beach house (in my absence), so I don't know how that part of it went. When we were having trouble with the lift mechanism, we took the blinds down. The entire mechanism inside slides around, and you have to make sure that the strings are centered in the holes and that the metal discs that hold the mechanism in place are tight. Otherwise, the strings get caught and don't move properly. I hope that makes sense. Would I buy them again? Probably. Would I recommend them to a friend? Yes, with a caution about the mechanism.
Easily, these are well worth the price. They make any room look rich and inviting. I was amazed at the amount of light that does not get through when the blinds are closed. These would be great for someone who needed to sleep during daylight hours.
Absolutely loved the blinds! fast, prompt delivery. Looks wonderful thoughout the house. Priced out other stores and they were $100+ more and they had guaranteed coupons, but nothing had compared to your pricing. Thank you for everything and will/have highly recommended your company to friends/family.
I redid my kitchen and ordered these blinds to finish the job. They arrived in just 2 days and went up in no time at all. I did have to cut the valance down just a bit, but otherwise they fit perfect. They look wonderful with the sun shining through them in the morning. I would order more if I could.
