I bought five of these blinds in different sizes for the windows in the living and dining rooms in a rental property. Three were installed side by side across a large front window in the living room. My handyman installed all the blinds and had nothing negative to say about the process. For just a little extra money, these beautiful blinds added a touch of elegance to a small older home with very few updates.
Purchased these for our dining room windows - if you're looking for total privacy/sun blockage, you'll want to go with a darker shade of bamboo. That being said, these particular shades in the "petite rustica" color are so much prettier than shown on the site. They add a touch of class, while gently blocking the sun and providing some privacy. I'd had these shades in a previous home, and knew they were what I wanted for our new home. For the money, Overstock's got the best price. You won't be disappointed.
