We purchased these blinds for a rental property. I'm a little concerned that they will not hold up for the long haul, but for the price, they seem sturdy. One note - the length sizes seem to be a bit less than what I ordered... not sure if I measured incorrectly, but I would err on the LONG side. Also, we ordered 'Pearl White' and the color is really more like an Ivory or what I would consider off-white. They are going to be fine for our rental property, but if these were for my house, I would be sending them back because of color.
