I returned these because they didn't fit my window -- even though the blinds were only about 1/4" too wide, cutting them down is not really a viable option. I got the mahogany color, which was extremely dark. I expected it to be a bit brighter. They looked great, though, and I have two sets of these (in a lighter color!) for some of my standard-size windows. I've been delighted with them, especially for the price.
