Really glad that I purchased this item. . I had purchased the same exact shades at a local retailer that cost more. I was delighted to have save some money at Overstock. I installed them in no time. There is a bit of light spill from the sides but I chose not to follow my own rule of ordering them at least 3" wider on each side....no matter though because my draperies will correct that .Thanks ! This is a great product that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
This is a no-frills white blackout shade with easy directions. The only thing I don't like is the gray appearance, but I guess that's how the blackout thing works, and it definitely does the job on my west-facing window. It also fits perfectly, blocking out the sun and winter chill. I mounted it from the top of my casement window with ease. I am ordering another, plus two similar but light-filtering shades from the same company.
We received the shades in a timely manner and they fit perfectly. Installation was easy and did the inside mounting. Great blackout. Color: the shades are not really white but a light gray color instead. It s not a big deal for us as our carpet has a similar tone.
I have one window in my bedroom that needed to be treated-this allows custom sizing. It was so easy to put together and install. (It does not account for brackets if you are using them on the side - but I installed my brackets above and there was no issue. They work well to block the light and slide easily! I would definitely recommend these!
This shade works well and are reasonably priced. It keeps the light out in the morning and that's what I needed. They were easy to install and raise and lowere well. You need to be gentle when grasping the handle because the bottom is not as secure as I would like and I'm afraid if im not careful it may separate if I handle it without care. Overall I'm satisfied with this shade and would recommend it.
We were looking for some room-darkening cordless cellular blinds for our daughter's & grandson's bedrooms in their new home. I found these at Overstock and was impressed with the pricing for the type of blinds these were. We ordered 6 of them and installed them with no issues. The quality is excellent, the cordless functionality is great, and the value is outstanding. Highly recommended.
These shades are exactly what I wanted for a bedroom door that has glass panes. They block out a substantial amount of light. I outside mounted them, so a little light seeps through around the edges - but so so much better than what I had before. It took me a while to install because I am not very handy with tools. Once I finally figured out which way the brackets go, it was fairly simple. The instructions are horrible. The material of these shades is the only reason I lowered the quality a bit. They do not feel very substantial; a little like stiff paper, but I haven't had them long enough to report how they hold up. They look great; do the job; and a great value. I plan on buying more for a couple of windows.... They are not exactly "white" - more light grey because of the dark color on the inside of the honeycombs (which I'm assuming is why they are blackout shades.)
The good: The shade is blackout. It's in a bedroom with very large windows which are light-filled without this blackout shade. The clear pulls included disappear and give a seamless look. Very little use and I have concerns about the reliability of cordless shades based upon reviews of customers on other sites. The bad: I'm wondering if the length received was correct because the shade is just a few inches shy of hitting the window sill. I double-checked my measurements, and I ordered correctly; so hoping that the shade will relax to the full length. I did have something similar with a cellular shade in a previous house and eventually, it went to full length.
I read all the reviews for these shades before I bought them. I was prepared to wage a war with the brackets and horrible directions I kept reading about. Wasn't I pleasantly surprised when I found that they were a PERFECT fit for my window, the brackets installed easily and quite simply and keep the sun out??? OMG even better than I expected. I am soooo happy with this purchase. The blinds are white but keep 98% of the brightest sun out for my midnight working husband. I recommend these a 100 times!
