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.
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.
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.
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.
