I have been looking for bamboo shades for my living room and these were the best price, and awesome shipping! I have bought similar shades before and should've known they wouldn't offer the privacyI I wanted. They look really great on my windows, but I'll be moving them to another room and buying faux wood blinds so I can control the light and privacy. All-in-all a great product that's easy to install. My windows are 23" wide and the blinds so scrape the woodwork when they go up/down, so I would order the next size down.
