These blinds are great! They hang in my office and let in a little filtered light, which is what I was looking for. I put them up, by myself, in an hour. A pencil, screwdriver and drill are the only tools needed. The price was what first attracted me. I had 4 windows to cover and didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars. Also, there were 3 or 4 colors to choose from, which was a plus. I would recommend these blinds to a friend!
