This is a great shade to upgrade to if you have been dealing with plastic miniblinds. Just be aware they are light filtering and do not block much at night if you have nearby neighbors. (Looks good from the inside, but looking in from the outside at night only- not much coverage. You could easily add a liner if needed)They can be shortened with a pair of scissors and a hot glue gun. I have not had a problem with width and while a half inch size may have been better, I just have sized 1 inch down and they still look custom. I have 5 of these now and have ordered them at different times. They are mostly uniform in color but keep in mind they are natural so there is subtle color variation. I would suggest if you had a wall were they would be side by side, order them all at once, but the difference is not noticeable on an adjacent wall. I have grey painted walls and white trim with natural hickory flooring. These look fabulous against it.
