I really love these shades. I was however, looking for light "filtering" not a thermal, lined shade. That is what these are - light filtering. The packaging states semi-private. I lucked out because I had a "hunch" that I had these shades in one of my rooms already. (Ones I bought years ago from a home improvement store) I loved these so much but before I could afford to outfit all of my windows, the store stopped selling them. LUCKY me, OVERSTOCK has them! The photo is a fair representation of what these shades look like and you can actually see that they do allow some light in. Not a lot. But again, they are not thermal or lined. The fabric is a nice quality and has horizontal texture in the fabric. I don't have to worry about privacy issues but they would work well, I believe. They are by no means "see through". They are very easy to hang, both inside mount and outside mount. They do have an attached "valance" that covers all the hardware. I had to outside mount mine because of my type of windows and added a pretty valance over top and they look very nice. They are classy, nice quality and a reasonable price.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Photo color spot on to actual color. Could also be called sage.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Nice quality.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description is incorrect when it says Thermal. This product is not lined. The description on the packaging says semi-private. Only one layer of fabric.
Very nice shade - husband said easy install. We actually installed into metal door and so had to use our own screws - still easy. Be aware, however, these shades do have cords which can be a choking/hanging hazard for little ones - I have a rule that the shade is always up and the cord rolled up when the grandkids come over.
This product was very affordable. I love the color and material does block the sun. The quality of fabric and hardware construction is ok. Overall, for what I paid, this is a very good deal. The quality matches the price. I am very happy with these shades.
I have received so many compliments on my new roman shades! They were easy to install, the color was great, and when I had a problem with a broken mechanism on one of the shades in my order, Overstock promptly replaced the shade. As a new homeowner of a 100 year old home, I think Overstock will be my new best friend!
This shade is Absolutely Gorgeous!!! The color is beautiful and the fabric is exquisite. Perfect fit for my back door, excellent price - would have paid much more anywhere else. Arrived in a few days and installation was simple. I've gotten many compliments, I'm so pleased with this purchase. Thanks Overstock!!!
The color and size of the blind was accurate, but the installation instructions left a bit to be desired. Finally figured out that the brackets need top clearance (on an inside mount). Other than that, just as described, and a good value for the price.
This shade is a great color and came in multiple sizes so I bought it. The brackets for the shade are not great. The back has rings and the rings pop out very easily, if you let the shade down too quickly or pull the cord too hard the rings pull out. The shade does not roll up it folds up, which results in pleated shades overhanging at the top . We wanted the shade in an archway and you have to bend down under it. It's very attractive but not worth the money or the hassle.
