I could not be more pleased. The ease of installing took minutes for each window. My mother saw them at my house and loved them so of course I had to buy her some and install them for The Holidays. They dress up the room without taking over the highlight. Perfect for us. Only negative was the color was a little different then the picture. They move up and down with quiet ease. No strings are great for me because of my cats and great for Mom with her joint problems.
