Very nice, high quality shade for the price. Easy to install. It is not room darkening, as it is somewhat see through when light is shining through it, but works perfectly for my family room windows. All you can see from the outside looking in, is light coming through at night if we are in the room. The order and delivery process was very easy and the blinds came in quickly as promised.
The shade is nice, however there are a few issues that were also mentioned by other reviewers. When the shade is closed, it is sheer - definitely not a privacy shade. When it is opened, the shade does not pull all the way to the top so there will always be approximately a foot of shade showing. Since I am using the shade more as a light curtain than for privacy, it works for me.
This shade was just what I wanted and nice quality, BUT when I unpacked it and started putting it up, it seemed to short. I got out the measuring tape and darn if it was almost an inch too short. I looked at the box and it said 35x72, but the actual measurement was a bit over 34 inches wide which offers no privacy as there was a large gap on both sides. I did chat with a wonderful lady at Overstock.com who sent me a free shipping return label! Great customer service at OS!
These blinds were described as "the perfect blend of light and privacy". That might be true during the daytime, but when the lights are on at night, these blinds are worthless. You can see through them clearly. My friend said "A dirty window would give you more privacy". I purchased 3 of them for my bedroom and love the way they look. They are not for privacy! I did not want to send them back, so I folded them over and put a piece of material in the bottom half so no one could look in my room at night. Not the greatest solution, but I didn't want the hassle of returning them. And, like I said, I love how they look!
