We just moved and I was looking for inexpensive, temporary blinds for the bedrooms. I had planned on getting better ones later, but needed something at once. They were priced right and easy to install. I will not be replacing them. They look as good as the expensive ones at the XXX XXX XXXXXX.
I purchased these blinds to go in my husband's workroom. He had curtains in there, but when someone passed in the yard or driveway next door you could "see them" and the shadows. I checked and you could not actually see into our window, but any traffic on that side of our house was a little distracting. I added the blinds (easy to install - Yeh!) and pulled the curtains back with tie-backs. Looks much nicer in his work room, he can open the blinds for light or close completely for privacy. The blinds have a head rail which make them look more finished. It was the perfect solution for that room. I shop Overstock.com for everything, and always get the product I need, plus great prices and professional customer service. Thanks O.
I emailed before ordering these blinds to see whether the blinds were smooth (which real wood are) or had a textured "wood" grain (like most cheap versions). I was told that they are smooth, but they are not. :-( Luckily, I only ordered a few and they will go in windows that won't be seen up close. Otherwise, they are a great value, much cheaper than I've seen anywhere else.
