The color of these shades should be called yellow, not ivory. They look like they came from the home of heavy indoor smokers. That aside, the quality seems great, the operation and installation seem simple. My husband decided he couldn't live with these because of the color, when normally such things don't bother him.
We purchased two of these shades for our kitchen window which is double. Love them. Lightweight, easy to raise & lower very attractive. We are getting new windows this month for the entire home. We will be ordering more of these great shades to make our new Windows look even better. A great purchase at A great price....
I asked my neighbor to install this and it fits perfectly! This will give my husband the privacy he needs while still allowing daylight in his room. The room he had at the nursing home was so dark. It looked like night time on a bright day. Well we're changing that and hopefully it will it will perk him up. In fact, I'd like to get two more for my bedroom windows!
We bought these as an emergency fix for our daughter's room. Her current venetian blinds were a mess. We thought, for the price we will leave them until we get something better and more permanent. We were really happily surprised when we opened the box and felt the strong fabric of these honeycomb blinds. We are only sorry, they are out of the size we need for our son's room.
These shades feel sturdy and are so easy to use. Without strings to get caught up in everything or tangled, using the shades is a dream. Just a gentle pressure up, and the whole thing is tucked away. A gentle pressure down, and you have light from above and privacy below. Very happy with the purchase.
The mounting bracket, top and bottom stretcher is soft pale orange. Looked aged when I first took it out of the box. The pleated shade when stretched is more a soft pale yellow orange. When collapsed the shade looks similar to the stretcher, like soft pale orange. It's not bad, just not as neutral as pure ivory. The quality is good. On the underside of the top mounting bracket there are 8 silver dots at either end. Straight on you wouldn't see sitting low from the side I notice them. I've never had these type of shade. Maybe they are all like that. I don't know.
I now have these in almost every room in my home and I love them! Our windows open both up and down, so when we need privacy in the evenings we can open the top of the windows and lower the blinds to match the windows which allows for the breezes to blow.
