Ordered this to help eliminate the heat from the front porch into the glass front door. Works wonderful. Looks great. Rolls up and is completely out of sight when not in use. I have a friend who saw it and is thinking of ordering one also. I ordered the honey and it looks great with our brick. Easy to hang and well constructed. Couldn't be happier. We live in the south and the front door faces west, this has kept some of the heat out of the house which was the reason we bought it.

The bamboo shade is just perfect for our needs. We have a screened porch that faces west so the afternoon sun can really be warm and the glare can be really bad. The shade solves both of these problems. While keeping out the heat it allows the breeze to come through. We love it.

These are awesome. Have had them on my screened in porch for almost 2 years. Have held up well to rain, wind, and the heat. Love them!

Bought two. Trimmed them slightly and used them as roll-up doors in front of open faced cabinets in my studio. They look clean, sharp and have transformed the room.

My husband was so pleased with this blind that he said it made the room look classy. I agree. The installation was easy enough for me to install it by myself. I would order another one.

When I opened the shade, I considered sending it back. I looked it up online and it can't be returned. So, we decided to just put it up. I am glad we did. It looks great and hopefully, it will continue to work and look great.

ordered these shades to put up on back porch to cut the midday sun/heat. Arrived quickly and are as described, color just as online. Very easy to put up, just use a pencil to mark the holes, insert holder (we used little wood screws) and it's done. Took less than 20 minutes to put all three up. Good quality for the price. Would definitely order more.

This shade was the perfect solution to shade and privacy. Easy to put up and take down. Only wish it had more than three hooks. Love it.

Shade was all it promised to be. It went up very easily and so far goes up and down like a dream. There is a bit more space between the slates then I'd have prefered but it does what it's suspose to do/

These bamboo roll up blinds suit the purpose of keeping the sun off my porch. they should have been longer but they will do.

This a very typical bamboo shade. The quality is just OK, nothing special. I think the price is a little high in that it does not even have a valance, something that I did not note when ordering. So all the mecanisiam showes when hung, does not look finished. But my biggest complaitn is the color...way off. Mahogany, to my mind is a very deep redish brown...this shade is orange, the color of cinnamon. In fact it looks much like the blinds sold a couple of years ago in import stores, that were called "Cinnamon Blinds". To avoid the hassel of returning I have kept it and spray painted it brown..it workd out OK.

We bought three shades, 72" wide and two shades, 48" wide They were all 72" long. The cord cleats that come with it are too small and fragile. I bought two metal ones for each shade and distanced them vertically so I wouldn't have to wind the drawstrings so many times around them. There are extra holes to the left of each wall fastener and I put screws in them too because the weight of the shades would cause them to creep down towards the heads of the hooks. That is working well so far.

See my review about the 48 inch Roll-up Window Shade. Same comments apply to this one.

I ordered the shade "Tortoise" and when I got it in the mail it was much lighter. They do the job, but I struggle getting them to hold rolled up.
