These faux-wood blinds look terrific in my bathroom windows. We have a roman tub surrounded by large windows and needed something that would hold up to moisture. The blinds are very heavy and they resist a little when making any adjustments. I also did not check to see if they are opened and closed by a wand, and sadly, they are cord operated. Disappointed, but my own fault for not checking. Aside from the operating issues, the blinds look rich and work for the privacy we needed. The price is great for a customized blind. I thought I would never find anything that would fit these huge windows for under $300 each.
