I purchased 20 of these for my entire house. Overall, I am very happy with them - especially for the price. I like the fact that they have difference shade of tans and browns. They work in every room of my house. The only thing that caught me by surprise is that you can see right through them. So, at night, you can see into my house when a light is on...to include my bedroom ;-( . I bought them for privacy...and I don't get any privacy at night (unless my lights are turned of). It guess that is expected for unlined bamboo shades. The only way you would have complete privacy is if they were lined or you close drapes infront of them. My mom had the same issue with different bamboo blinds she purchased. With that said, I have decided to rate these as a 5 (even with the privacy issue). They were easy to install, quick shipping, as described, and a perfect color. I would purchase again and would recommend to friends.
I like these shades! These did not come with the green overtones (or undertones) expressed in other reviews. The primary colors are gold / tan / brown - though there are touches of green, and I could see how this color might be picked up in a green room. The shades are definitely rustic and fit in well with shabby-chic / country feel to my apartment. They do not completely block light when covering the windows. I would call them semi-private.
Quality was fine, custom size option is amazing. However, these particular ones were actually very green. I returned them, they just wouldn't work. For the record, I LOVE overstock and have purchased all of my wool rugs and numerous other items for my home. I hardly return anything! Not sure if ill try another color, but I'm tempted....
The blinds are very nice, they are well made I ordered 2 in different sizes Thankfully the windows were not together as the color consistency was off between One had a great deal of a green color in them They looked darker on line Over all NICE PRODUCT though.

I got two of these shades. This one was for my kitchen to replace OLD yucky blinds. This just really made a difference in there. Just made everything look much more clean and put together. This shade is just perfect and the price is great for a off size like a 39 in. I also bought a 45" in. for my entryway. The shades match perfect as well. But the nice thing about these is that they don't have to match perfect because they have the different color bamboo in them.

These blinds are a very good value for the price paid. I put them on my back patio room and they look lovely and let in light (which is what I had expected). The pull cords are excessively long but I'll have to figure out something with them. Other than that I'm very happy w/this purchase.
The roman shades look beautiful in our bedroom. We had boring aluminum blinds before, and these warm up the room, provide beautiful contrast and texture, and give that perfect, understated touch to the room. However, if I need to change into my pajamas at night, I must do it in my closet or the neighbors will get an eyeful. The shades provide adequate privacy during the daytime, but when the light is on in our bedroom at night, do not expect any privacy. You can see right through them in detail. Also, they were a tad too wide for our window, but all my husband had to do was install the brackets on the outside of the frame. Not a big deal for us. I'm happy with the blinds, especially given what we paid for them, but they're not perfect.
The bamboo is multicolored and matches my decorating perfectly! I bought three different sizes for different windows in the same room. One of them is 75 inches wide, and the pulley system works great. I was a bit surprised by the weight. I was expecting bamboo to be a little lighter. Also, these are inside mounts. I had to get on a live chat with someone from the website to find that out, it's not listed in the item description. I was able to install them as an outside mount, it just took a little adjustment. It def. makes a difference if you're tight on space.
I purchased these bamboo shades for 4 windows in my great room and am thrilled with them. They are exactly what I was looking for. They came exactly cut to width as ordered. These shades do have a hint of a subtle green undertone, but for me that's exactly what I wanted. Extremely easy to install and are simple to raise/lower for adjustment as needed.
