Cover your windows in style with these Roman style tan bamboo window shades. These natural looking window treatments are carefully woven to filter light and are constructed from real bamboo and other environmentally-friendly materials.
These shades were fairly easy to install and look good. Note that these are not Roman shades, in the sense that they have overlapping folds when drawn. Rather, they roll up into a complete cylinder when pulled open.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? fairly accurate; not acutally Roman shade, but roll-up blind
Great shades for you DIYers to stain with water-based stains and spray sealer. Hang to stain and remove any stain out of the cracks. It does take time but so worth it for a custom shade. I did mine in deep rust for drama. They look wonderful with the filtered light coming through.

It is hard to find shades 74 inches wide, so these are truly a great value. These went up easily. We were able to put the screws into studs so it is very secure. It rolls up and down easily and looks great! I bought two smaller ones for my TV room.

I thought I was going to have to "special order" blinds for both of my bedroom windows due to their size. I went to Overstock and narrowed my search and there were numerous choices for each of the windows of both 47" widths and a 71" widths. The blinds were shipped together, packed well and arrived in less than a week. The instructions were helpful (with the exception of the additional harware & instructions for "retrofitting" the shades to remove the pull-cords - which I didn't need/use anyway). The installation was easy and the blinds look great and replace the nasty vertical blinds that came with my place. I actually ordered the wrong size for the 71" window, but the 70" shade works perfectly too. You can mount the shades both inside the window frame or wall mounted over the casing itself. I would highly recommend these blinds to anyone. The shades look great, cost less than $** total, a lot less than special order! The shades do allow quite a bit of sun through, so if you require "blackout" coverings you will still need curtains over them. I'm very happy with my purchase.
This is a very attractive bamboo roman shade. Really looks nice with my light gray walls. The really disappointing part is that they offer next to no privacy. At night with your lights on the neighbors can see everything going on inside your house. During the day they let a ton of light in. I am currently researching adding a custom made blackout liner, which will increase the cost per window treatment and might detract from the looks...won't know for sure until I try it. So until I know how that works out I only recommend a bamboo shade on a window that you don't need privacy. Such as a kitchen window. Thankfully I only bought 1 shade for the living room and one for the kitchen thus far. If the liner doesn't work out I will only be out the one in the living room. The one it the kitchen can stay no matter what. So fingers crossed that the liner looks and works well.
Shipment arrived quickly, easy install, nice warm feeling in rental apt. Color is warm and will easily blend in with any decor. Tenants very happy with shades, easy to open, close, blocks off strong sun light, yet, does not black out room. Nice touch. Ordered seven (7) shades and all match, color and finish-wise. Sometimes you can have variation in colors with natural bamboo.
Im not that mechanically minded but my 13 year old daugter and I managed to get these installed pretty easily. We like how they look and they operate as they should BUT they are more like light filtering than window coverings. Since they were for my daugters bedroom we had to purchase an additional roman shade liner so she could change safely in her room.
I purchased both a smaller and a larger size blind and the large one had bend and crushed rows which when help up to the window showed through. The smaller one arrived rolled up and seems to be in better condition so i am keeping that one for a hall window, but no way would i use these in my living room which is where i had purchased them for.
If I want to do an inside mount and the inside of my window frame = 41", would I order 41" wide or should I shorten my order to 40"? Thank you.daveydog on Aug 10, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello daveydog, the manufacturer recommends deducting between 1/16" and 3/8" from the width on each side. The deductions are made so that the blind will not rub or scratch your window frame. Thanks For shopping with us!overstockcustomercare2 on Aug 14, 2014

Can you mount these blinds as an outside mount? I want to install them on a set of french doors.jjpenny01 on Feb 27, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi jjpenny01, we were able to verify this information with our support team. It can do both outside and inside mount. However, we don't recommend it for French door, there is no hold down bracket included, the bottom of the shade can't stay in place. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 13, 2014
