Despite never getting my questioned answered on mounting space required (1.5 to 2 inches) I went ahead and ordered these because I loved the look and price! We hung them and they look great, even without a valance at the top the windows, they have a complete look with our wide white window trim. Yes, they are a fabric material (would not really realize looking at them hanging) so I unsure how dusting and cleaning them may go in the future. My fiancee quickly hung the remaining three after a little time spent on the first one, they included lots of extra screws and pieces, usually you end up short somehow.
I bought these for a 10 window sunroom. They provide a soft filtering of light and definitely keep the room cool. Hopefully I will find the same true for keeping out the cold in the winter. They look nice even without another window treatment. They look especially nice from the outside.

These are cloth blinds for a very affordable price. We put these in a home we are renting out, and they increased the look of the home by 100%. They are great quality for an awesome price, could not have asked for a better deal! They were easier to put up then the cheap plastic blinds, and the look is amazing. These are HIGHLY recommended for blinds. Don't ever waste your money on cheap plastic ones again.

I recently purchased a new house and did not realize how expensive window treatments are- EXPENSIVE! I have been waiting to get something for the home office (bedroom) that wasn't too expensive, but didn't look cheap. These are perfect! They look great and are cheaper than the plastic ones you find in retail stores. Not sure how they will clean up over time because of the material, but these were a great bargain and I'm ordering more. And order the width that you need- there was some confusion in other posts, but these absolutely are made for the width you choose AND the length is adaptable (you can make shorter- it is in the directions).
I bought these blinds because they were 2" slats with fabric tape AND for their fabulous pricing. They look wonderful hanging in my living room! However, there are a few drawbacks. These are NOT blinds to be used in "high traffic" areas where they will be regularly pulled up and down or opened and closed. They are not very sturdy. I doubt they will last long in high-use areas as the slats are made of fabric. They also do not close completely; so, do not use where privacy is a necessity. But, considering the great pricing, I cannot complain. Even with those issues, I am still going to order two more for my dining room. I doubt those blinds will ever be touched in that room. However, I will order more expensive and long-lasting blinds for my bedroom and bath...those are rooms that blinds will see a lot of wear and tear.
these blinds are great - I have put them in 3 other rooms last year - they are light weight unlike other wooden slat blinds - the fabric has worked and worn well in my other rooms - they let a little hint of brightness in which is nice as I was going for privacy not darkness - great value
These blinds are as pictured. They were very easy to hang and give the room a very modern, classy look. I was able to shorten them easily and kept the extra slats in case I need them later. They give good privacy but allow some light. I am very pleased with these shades.
One slat was an inch shorter than the others. That was the deal breaker, so I'm sending it back (and paying to do so). Other problems: the top brackets are too big to hold the headrail (and are therefore useless for holding up the blind), the strips of fabric that hold the slats are dirty in places, the color is greeny yellow. The package was also pretty thrashed.
