These blinds are perfect for us. We've placed two orders already for our condo in Sarasota and now that we've sold it recently, we'll be ordering more for our home. OS carries a great variety of sizes, we love the rich warm tone of the bamboo and they blended perfectly w/ the cool tone colors I decorate w/. My husband had no problem hanging them and they operate perfectly. I will say that as a precaution, because of the weight, I do pull blind open w/ one hand while I hold/support the blind w/ my other hand as I raise it.
