I received these shades approximately 3 weeks ago. They arrived very safely in two big boxes that weren't heavy at all to carry into my house. After an extensive search, I'd finally found these at a great price and was very excited. The packaging was solid and there was no damage to the shades. I used these to replace boring, basic, white blinds in my guestroom. They couldn't have been easier to install. By myself, it took me approximately one hour and that's only because I've never installed shades before. The only tools I used were my drill and cordless screwdriver. They are absolutely beautiful in the windows. Some light does come through, but it only seems to enhance the beauty of the shades.
I live in house with 8 windows measuring 34 in. x 75 in. I ordered the bamboo shades for three of my windows to start out with because I wasn't sure if they would look too short in the window. They looked perfect and so unique! Most of the other homes in my neighborhood choose to use the standard white wood or fake wood blinds. These bamboo shades add such character to the house that I decided to buy them for my other five windows. The variation in color is so nice - warm tones that bring out the stone colors in my fireplace. The price you cannot beat! It's a fraction of the cost that you would pay for other blinds! Installing was so easy - if you know how to use a drill and a screwdriver. The brackets really make a difference. I shortened the cords so that my 2 year old would not be able to reach them. The only small complaint I have is that the first three blinds I received make a squeaky noise when I put them up and down - but nothing I can't fix with some WD40. Hands down - the best purchase I have made for my house so far and I'm so proud to say that I paid a fraction of the cost for each window!!
These shades worked out perfectly. They arrived in a timely manner with all of the hardware. Here's the important point - I'm an Interior Designer. I was looking for cheap shades to "stage" a room as I didn't want the expense of custom. I never expected to be so satisfied with the shades. They look exactly like the picture. The only point to keep in mind is that they are not lined so they do let some light in through the cracks of the bamboo. However, they still offer privacy. Definitely a good value for the price.
My windows are 58 and 63 inches in length. Is it possible to keep them in a partly raised position? Do you have an image of these (or this type of) blinds in a raised position?
