After buying a new house that needed dozens of window treatments, we couldn't afford anything much more expensive than these shades for now. They come in a good variety of sizes, so I was able to find a close fit for most of my windows. The only thing I don't love about these is that the cord is very awkward to get out of the way when the shade is up. Very long, and the wider shades come with multiple cords that get tangled together easily. They do seem to work fairly well as far as I can tell, but we will see with time if they hold up. All in all, for the price, these look good, but you definitely get what you pay for as far as functionality goes.
I ordered a whole set of these for the house. Unfortunately the Measurement Chart they provide (for INSIDE MOUNT) is not as accurate as I expected; I could have easily ordered an a shade that was 1 inch wider than what they recommended. I followed the directions for the "Inside Mount" measurements - perfectly - but still think the size/width is too small/narrow for the window. I recommend ordering the same size/width blinds as the inner window frame (for inside mount). Ex. 30 inch window = 30 inch blinds. Otherwise you'll have a large gap between the shades and window and will see the mounting hardware at the top/sides of the window frame. Have had problems with a few "slipping" - the cord does not seat well/tight into the roller, which means they occasionally fall/lower on their own....
Honestly, I took a chance with these blinds. You never know if your own measurements are correct or whether you take into account of the header rail in the length or whether or not the manufacturer adds or subtracts an eighth or quarter of an inch here or there. I've owned six condos and two homes in my life and one of the first installations to do is window treatments. I took a chance on these are they were perfect in every way...... Seriously, this is not a canned review. The installation was a piece of cake. Four screws into the inside mount of the window that hold up the brackets. The header rail of the blind just clips right in. I would say the installation was 8 minutes each. These blinds are so clean looking. There are no cords and the plastic tabs are a good idea to install to pull down or up these blinds. All nine of the blinds that I ordered 8 x 34" and 1 x 26" FIT PERFECTLY. It's like they were made for the condo. I am so please with all of them. The condo looks so finished and clean. Bravo.
