We actually put these up on the outside of our house in New Mexico. We have double doors in the living room & master bedroom. We didn't want to put shades on the doors themselves because the sun really hits those doors & inside shades trap the heat which causes blown seals in the double pane glass. Also, we wanted to retain as much of the view as possible. So, we put one of these bamboo shades outside each of these double doors. We attached them to the stucco above the doors. When rolled up they look a little like awnings, & when we let them down, they block just the right amount of light. When they are down, we get a lovely filtered light in the house. We can also open the doors when they are down, & they serve as a screen, keeping bugs out. We will see how long they hold up to the New Mexico weather, but when they wear out, we will do the same thing again. Great solution!
