Be sure to deduct at least 1/4 inch from your desired width, or you may have to mount them without the end caps! The sellers do NOT automatically take off any width for inside mounting. "Papery" textured blinds nevertheless give good blackout effect and have an attractive color and appearance for bargain blinds. Would buy again for a bedroom or area that needs full sun blocking.

I had quotes for shades for my windows. After reviving from sticker shock I measured for "standard" sizes and found just exactly what I needed at O.CO. Why didn't I start here?? They work very well and the no strings adjustable feature is fabulous. Dogs or kids can't get tangled. Hope sizes I need will be there next time I need new shades.
I was expecting these shades to be a bit flimsy but they're of nice quality, fit perfectly, and they do exactly what they're supposed to. Wish I'd bought these before shelling out for low-quality ****** shades. Will be buying another set for the spare bedroom.
I wanted something to block the light from the window across from my TV. This shade is perfect for that. It was easy to install, once I got the hardware up correctly (better illustrations would help.) I am very satisfied with my purchase. Price was good, too.
Seriously, one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. I live in an apartment complex & light coming in through my bedroom window has always been an issue at night. I've been meaning to get some blackout shades for a while but I kept putting it off. I finally ordered these last week & I was a little bit apprehensive at first because of the price. They are WAY better than I expected. I paid a friend to hang them for me but he had them hung in about 15 minutes, so hanging them shouldn't be too hard for most people. When they say "blackout" they're not exaggerating. Seriously, not a ray of light gets through these things at night (I can't see my hand in front of my face). During the day when the sun is out the brightness in the room is decreased by at least 90%. A great product at a fantastic price. Shipping was free & they arrived in 2 days.
I really like these! I was nervous they would be cheaply made or look cheap, they don't. They almost look ombre too - with the color looking darker toward the bottom when they are pulled down and bunched on the windowsill. They block out the light and I love that they are cordless- nothing for the puppy to pull! Great value and great buy.
Although these blinds have plastic top where it affixes to window casing (versus pricier metal) they are wonderful. Size was perfect as ordered. Cellular part is attractive and they function well as far as going up and down easily. Blackout does just that. Price is very good. Shipped quickly. Very pleased all the way around.
I live in Florida and moved to a new home with east facing bedroom windows. I was not sure what to get as I was still figuring out the decorating side but knew I needed a black out something. These blinds came fast and will go with just about any style I decide on for the rooms. They do as advertised and stop the blazing sun. My husband commented that I did well on this pick as they were a snap to put up (took only a few minutes for each room). I’m not sure that they would be a good pick for kitchen windows due to the material it’s made of and possible splatters at sink area so I will get something washable there. For other rooms though…I would highly highly recommend.
We ordered these from Overstock because they were about $XX cheaper for the size we needed (72" x 72") than the XXXX XXXXX equivalent. We were a bit nervous about the quality, but these are very nice blinds. They install easily (once you figure out the skimpy directions - that's my only complaint), and they look VERY nice in our redone guest bedroom. We chose these for the blackout feature, because that room gets full sun most of the day. They were great! We are going to order another one for a similar window in another room. I recommend them highly!
These blinds are well made and do a great job of insulating and blocking out light when you want them to. The cordless system works great and allows you to position them at any level you want them. They were also easy to hang. I would highly recommend them.
