I recently bought a house with no blinds in the living room or master bedroom. I purchased custom wood blinds from overstock and absolutely love them!! They are a beautiful rich color. The computer samples had me a little worried but in person they are much better. Because the wood is so dark, it really keeps a lot of light out. I probably won't hang curtains because I do not want to cover up the blinds. If you are thinking about buying them, DO IT!
