I ordered these shades in various sizes after remodeling my kitchen. They were extremely easy to hang. Because of my new windows, I had to outside mount them (on my frame) -- they still look great. They do not offer privacy as you can see through them, I use curtains on the sides of the ones in my dining room at night. I love them, they make my kitchen and dining room look totally updated and I get compliments on them all the time. I looked around for awhile to try to find decent shades at a good price (Lowes, Home Depot, Cost Plus)....these are great quality and an excellent price. I bought 6 shades and only paid $200. Plus, the shipping was fast and economical. I definitely recommend this product!
