I love the look of these blinds from the inside and outside. They look great and we get so many compliments on them. The only problem is at night they offer zero privacy. You can SEE RIGHT THROUGH THEM. I can literally see what is playing on the television when I am pulling into the driveway. I sucks even more because you cant see out but you know people can see in. I am currently researching making some sort of privacy liner but if that does not work I will need to replace with a real wood blind.
