I was shopping around in different stores and blind manufactures for cellulars blinds. This is my first time doing it on my own, what an education. In the past we lived in a different home, we custom ordered these type of shades with a upscale brand through a blind dealer/ installer and we paid a lot of money. This time I decided to shop around and install them ourself. I don't know why cellular shades are so expensive, especially anything custom. I came across these shades from Overstock.com and reading all the reviews and Q&A, I decided to order a couple to try, even if it's not good, it was so inexpensive, I don't think I have much to lose. After feeling the texture and the thickness of numerous brand and make. When I finally got these shades, I was so thrill, the quality of them was very good. Even though I read most of the reviews / Q&A, I was still very hesitant, since I normally would never order these things online. I love them!!! I love the price even more. I do hope they'll hold up in time...***For those of you who have questions like some of these I wonder about when I order these (1/4 or 1/2 inch could be very very important in some cases, especially when you're doing inside mount of the window and you don't want to order ones that are way too small that could look unfitted or order ones that are just 1/4 inch too big that doesn't fit or it has no room to move up and down. So how much smaller is the actual shade? I order a 34 inch and the actual shade is 33-3/4 inch, so it's 1/4 inch smaller. Manufacture makes their shades a little smaller so it fits your windows especially if you do a insde mount, so the shade will move. The width / thickness of the shades (not the bracket, bracket is slightly bigger) is 1 inch (one of the Q&A answer was 1-1/2 inch, not sure why, maybe a different brand.) (This may or may not matter to most people, but I thought it may matter to others.) The site didn't accurately point out these top/ down bottom shades are CORDLESS as well. (some review did stated it's cordless, but one of the Q&A answer stated that is corded, so it's quite confusing for the consumer.) The color IVORY is definitely a bit more yellow, but it's a nice color, but, if you want something cooler, then you may want to simply order the only other color choice for the top down/ bottom up...WHITE, which is what I did when I reorder more of them, I wish they have more different sizes and color available...like smaller, wider, shorter. I would have order even more. All in all, the ordering process was very smooth and all the REPs are very professional and friendly. First time ever use this website, so glad I did, will recommend OS.COM to anyone. Hope this helps.
