The liner works well to block the transparency of the blinds. I bought several to cover all of the blinds in our house. If the liner was the right size, it was pretty easy to install. I had a few that the glue on the Velcro had dried out. I had to cut and hem several to make them fit my blinds. Overall, I am pleased with the product.
I am pretty good at deciphering instructions, even when other reviewers have trouble, but I really struggled with these. I had zero experience with privacy liners so I really had no idea where to start. Had to watch a youtube video to finally get the idea!! Besides that, the quality is good and they are very functional. I couldn't find the right size for my windows so I ended up having to cut about 8" off these but they still work great.
This privacy liner does just what i need it too- helps to keep out the cold air and adds a layer of privacy for our living room bamboo shades. although easy to install, they were a bit long for my 54" shades, so i cut them short and hemmed them up and just added a few stitches to connect to the blinds at the bottom because i altered them. I honestly think the shades look better from the outside without the liner, but in the end it's about function and i'd rather have the privacy and warmth.
It was confusing to call this privacy because it still allows one to see through it. I had to replace it with blackout liner. Unfortunately, I saw someone trying to break into my bedroom window before it was replaced, or maybe that was fortunate.
As much as I like the look of my bamboo blinds, I don't like how people outside can see in, so I thought I'd try this relatively cheap alternative to finding new blinds with the same look and more privacy. These work perfect! It comes with lots of little clips and such, but all we did was hammer the cloth to the back of the blinds, with nails that already come packed in with the blinds and hang them back on the wall. That's it. Nothing else to do. The liners rolls up with the blinds, and the whole thing works seamlessly, but with added privacy that we didn't have before. Now when the blinds are closed, we can't see out and no one can see in. When the blinds are closed during the day, it kind of looks like snow outside, since the blinds are white, but they completely block the outside out, while still letting some light in. Highly recommended!
This product does exactly what I wanted it to. It gives privacy inside since the bamboo blinds are practically see thru when the lights are on inside and it also made what you see from the outside white instead of brown. They were very easy to install. Mine were way too long, so I just cut them down to size. My only complaint is there is one spot where there is a good distance between the support sticks and I think if there was another one in there, the liner would collect better behind the blind.
