I bought these shades for a sun room I was converting to a bedroom for my daughter... she wanted a beach house theme. There were 9 windows in all, so I wanted to make sure that I used a shade that provided privacy while still letting in some natural light. These fit the bill perfectly. The bamboo is backed by pleated polyester to allow for the up and down movement of the shade while providing both privacy and filtered light. They look great and really bring the room together... if you don't look out the windows and see the forest to the rear of the house, you'd swear you were at the beach! Only issue I had (which worked out OK) was that I ordered the Tiki model of this shade and they sent me a different, yet similar model. The bamboo pattern was a bit different, the color a bit lighter, but the construction and operation of the shade were exactly the same... no harm, no foul.
