I love the window shade, it looks great once installed. However, I was totally disappointed that the product arrived broken! Probably happened in shipping.... The support board was broken right in the center ;( I was able to make it work by adding a metal bracket to mend the two halves. I don't use the window it's installed in, so it should hold up just fine. I just wish it wasn't such a pain to return and exchange large items like this, I had to cut up the box to get it out to then find out it was damaged. thankfully it was only twenty bucks but it looks like I spent 50 .
I bought one of these shade for the bedroom window of my Houseboat and loved it so much I ordered 4 more to use in the Living/Kitchen area of the boat too. They are a greenish fabric supported by bamboo and look just perfect with the wood walls of the boat. To answer a question asked, yes you can mount them inside or outside the frame of the window or even on the ceiling if you choose. My husband mounted them on the outside and they look perfect. The price is great for the quality. I can't wait to get them all up!
These blinds are a great value. Very pleased with the product. They are smelly at first but it aired out. I do have to agree with the other review they do have a green color to them. They were too large for the window, so my husband bought a new saw blade and cut them to fit the window. Worked great. They open and close easily and best of all look great. Really dresses up my windows And blocks out the hot sun!

Good product, especially for the price! It looks very nice and I am actually about to order a second one because of that. The material is a little thin, but I was expecting this. I have thermal tinted windows, so I don't really need to to keep sunlight out per se. It is more brown in color, but the picture made it seem grey, which is fine I suppose. But, if you're buying strictly for color, it's different.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Did not match. Seemed grey in the picture, it's definitely more brown.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I suppose it was accurate. Didn't look into much detail past picture and measurements
I was led to believe from the description that these blinds were easy to install but they arrived with an overwhelming amount of hardware and the blinds were much heavier than expected. Since I am not good at assembling/installing things, the blinds have been sitting in my basement unopened until I donate them or give them to a friend who might be more handy than myself. I felt they were too heavy to return.
