When I opened the box for these blinds I was so excited because they are beautiful! A few days later I finally got my husband to hang them. Much to our frustration the brackets were a bit flimsey and difficult to get the drill in the correct position, ours bent easily. We then had 2 screws break while drilling them into the frame leaving a metal dot where we needed to have a screw. We used some wood screws we had for the other holes and they worked much better, don't use the screws that come with the blinds! The other problem we had was lowering and raising the blinds. I read in another review that they had a problem with this so I knew to keep trying. The instructions say to give a light tug, we needed a lot more than that to get them to release, A Lot! Other than these 2 issues I love the blinds, they are very rich looking, easy to change the position of the blinds, (pointing down, open, pointing up, etc.) and the moulding is the perfect touch. I purchased a set of 2 and we only have the one hung so far due to the frustrating installation.
