I really love these shades. They have a really nice, more modern feel to them than a lot of other options, but the limited sizes was an issue for me. I bought them for our previous house and they were beautiful - and they provided a lot of privacy which is different than most of these shades in this price point. My only issue with using them is they were never straight when I opened them in the morning. The ones I got were on the wider side (more than 40") so that might have something to do with it, but I ordered other shades from Overstock from another manufacturer, and the wider shades have a third string that I think might help keep them straighter. It wasn't a big deal, you just tug on one of the strings on one side to straighten them out, but it gets a little old after a while as we operate them every day. I would still buy them if they were long enough for the windows in my new house though!
I had high hopes for these shades. I bought two and clearly one is better quality than the other.. While installing one of the strings came completely out because it wasn't secured in the back, so I spent 20 minutes feeding it back through. The wooden end on the pull broke day 2 out of nowhere (we don't have kids) and this shade doesn't lay nice and even. The second shade is perfect, so I guess it's a hit or miss.
I love these blinds, however, they did not come with extra bamboo to cover up the sides when mounting them on the outside of the window. I would love for this company to send me the bamboo to accomplish this. I bought other blinds that did come with the extra bamboo. Why not this product?
Don't be lulled into thinking these are private or semi-private. I took off a star for that, otherwise it's a 5 star product! I bought them for my sliders(french door type) desiring privacy and decoration. When I stand outside at night, I can see whomever is inside and what they are doing! You cannot see anything from inside looking out. False sense of privacy! I need to find a way to attach a backing, as I was hoping they would be mostly private. With that said, they are gorgeous!! Much better in person than online. Elegant, beautiful color, and good quality. I definitely recommend them for a light-filtering, functional decoration. You won't be disappointed.
The product is great, especially the sturdy quality and sharpness. Once on the window, it has a high end look to it, and really looks good againt a light or dark wall contrast. The density is great at keeping the sun out, however the sheerness of it, does not block the view from outside. The pickaboo effect will need a darker shade, to completely block the view into your home at night. Otherwise I would get them throughout the entire house.
I love, love, love these shades. I wasn't sure about them for a bedroom but they provide privacy while permitting light through. More importantly, I love the ease of installation. All shade companies should take a look at how these shades are designed for installation. With the slat type opening at the top, there is really no need to be precise in your measurements because you can move the shade back and forth on the bracket to center it on the window. It is an ingenious design!!
Much nicer in person! This is perfect for my boys' room. We wanted something that would darken the room during the day so that they could nap but wouldn't completely block out the light. Not only does this shade do just what we wanted, but it's also beautiful! Looks expensive, and it's very well made. We are thrilled with the purchase and would buy it again.
What a surprise!!! Just received my blinds today and the quality and construction and color of them is outstanding! I have just purchased 8 more and can hardly wait to get them! One really can get outstanding deals at Overstock! Thanks..............
