Just ordered these to replace the ugly, dusty venetian blinds in our daughter's bedroom. I was partly hoping to get rid of the cords, but also to brighten up the overall appearance of her room. These shades were perfect - great value, easy to install, and easy to use. They do let in a fair amount of daylight (which is fine for us, as I wouldn't want the room to be a cave, but if you're looking for light-blocking effect these might not fit the bill). All in all, extremely pleased with the purchase. I'm planning to order more for a playroom downstairs.
I bought 4 sets of these 5 or 6 years ago. All the necessary hardware was included. They have worked flawlessly and still look new. They filter the sun and allow the room to remain bright. I couldn't be more pleased and am getting ready to order 2 more sets.
They look as good as custom blinds I purchased for 10x the price. I wish I had purchased more when they were on sale to do more rooms, but I only purchased 6 for one room. Inexpensive way to perk up window and rooms. Great inexpensive shade.
Don't hesitate- I love these shades. The cordless function is very easy to lift up and pull down. They rise and lower evenly on both sides. They go a great jobs of blocking the light (it isn't a complete black out) and provides privacy. They were easy to put up and look every bit as good as the more expensive ones from custom blind stores. I highly recommend.
