The blinds came in a prompt timely manner. The instructions were a little light, but were not unlike most instructions these days. I felt like the color of the product was very much like the color advertised on the sight. The blinds were a very good value compare to our local **** and other similar retail outlets. I would recommend these blinds to anyone looking for a nice vertical blind. They are natural looking and add a soft touch to our decor. The only thing that prevented us from granting this a five star rating was that the blinds were quite sheer. The fabric is much softer than what it appears to be in the photos. The photos make the blinds appear to be somewhat stiff. The material however is very sheer and thus is not as light fltering as we had expected. Pehraps a darker color would have been slightly more light filtering, I highly doubt it would have made much of a difference. There is a fair amount of labor required for the installation, but my husband was able to install them with the use of only a few tools (drill, screwdriver, etc). Measurements were exactly as stated on the site and as mentioned the product was for the most part exactly as described. The only thing that would have made the product a 5-star would have been the thickness of the blinds/material. When spread out across the entire set of french doors, they are quite sheer. We use them for our back patio doors and usually they are not extended all the way so they work. If you are looking for a light filtering blind, I would perhaps not recommend them.

Sunlight does peek through, they are light weight and have a great weighted bottom. Another plus, they are a strip of material, so they are the same on "both" sides. I love that they do not "clang" like the old plastic ones would do with a breeze. I am very pleased with this purchase!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Happy we went with the darker color, with sunlight it becomes much lighter.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
Was apprehensive about ordering, but product is top quality and exactly what I would have gotten from one of those NDB stores at 2/3 the cost. Blind can be installed to open from the left or the right, instructions were pretty clear. One problem - the mounting brackets that came with the blind were not long enough for the verticals to clear the framing around the sliding door, but one call to the manufacturers toll free # after hours got a return call the next day with the promise to send out the longer brackets. They kept their promise, and the new longer brackets worked perfectly. This blind has the weights at the bottom of each vertical panel, and works very smoothly. We are very happy with this purchase!
"Just ok" in my mind. A bit flimsy and non-descript-but a real improvement over the plastic verticals I replaced. I think they are probably a good value, but I hadn't really shopped my patio door options, so since I wanted to cover the door at a reasonable cost, (although not cheap by any means) they are "fine". If you want more wow-factor, I'd look further.
I have two questions before ordering...Do these fabric vanes slide into a plastic vane to be more secure or are they flimsy and just the fabric? Also, does it come with a valance, and if so is it the same colored material?
Thank you!pollarm on Feb 6, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
These fabric vertical blinds are a "free-hang", which means there is a weight sewn in at the bottom to keep them hanging straight and even without a vinyl backing. A valance with a matching fabric insert is included.Thanks for checking!

No plastic! They are weighted bottoms! I ordered the darkest one, and I am very happy with them. It does come with a matching valance, you slide the material into the snap on plastic valance with sides too! Hope this helps. Ps the light does filter through, not a lot, just enough.pbr2gal on Jun 26, 2013
Which direction do these stack and what are the options for operating controls?dnfp on Dec 21, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Our blinds are made with a cord to draw the vanes to the side and a chain to rotate the vanes in place. The direction of the stack can be determined at the time of installation. The cord and chain controls are on the same side as the stack.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 23, 2012
