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).
the color is not a true white but also not a normal off white color either. has a yellow/green tinge to it. the fabric is a different color than the white metal frame. however, i did keep the blinds and they look ok in the windows i hung them in. could possibly be a problem depending on what color walls are painted or color of other drapes etc that may clash with strange tint of color. otherwise style is nice. provides privacy but lets in tons of light. could only recommend if they make a true white or other colors.
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.
I needed something to cover the windows and let in light when it was day, obscure the view at night. I like the shades. They are casual. They can be customized to length. They have plastic wands on one side and strings on the other and come with cleats to secure the cords if desired. We have inset windows and my husband installed on the top of the window well. They went up fairly well although he had a little trouble securing them in the brackets. I have to say I really want custom wood shutters, but these are really nice for a compromise. ;-)
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.
Exceptional quality and look for this price. I was thrilled to receive them. They completed my apartment and have a luxury look. They don't look cheap at all. Sure, I'd prefer a heavy wood, but I don't own this place, so not worth the investment.
