i've used bamboo blinds for years, but i just moved into a new house and my old ones are all too narrow for my new windows. i love the look of bamboo blinds at night, but i have not been such a fan of how they are woven so loosely as to let in quite a bit of light and don't really block visibility from the outside. THESE ARE DIFFERENT!!! these are wonderful; i wondered how bamboo blinds could possibly be "privacy" as the name suggests and they are too inexpensive to hope that there would be a privacy panel on the inside. these are woven so tightly that there is no possibility of outside peeping. (i live in nyc, it's a thing.) they also are effective at blocking the light, which is great for me because my husband likes the blackout curtains, but i hate curtains in general, and i love the look and feel of the natural bamboo blinds. these are so perfect. the color is perfection, they are so beautiful, and they are so well-made. my family can't get enough of how great they are. we started with the 4 windows in our front room, but we will be moving through our entire house and using these as our window treatments. the price is also phenomenal. if you're looking for bamboo blinds, or even just beautiful, unique, clean window treatments, you won't regret these!
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.
We bought our new home in 2014. No window treatment were included, I searched local stores for something different. I didn't want just "mini blinds" for the living room. I found items similar to these as a very high cost and not at the width I needed which added more money to have them customized. By chance I went on Overstock (which was my first time) and what do you know, they had what I wanted with the exact width I needed. I got 3 window treatments for less than what one would have cost me at the "other" store, very happy. It is now 3 1/2 years later and they look and work as well as the first day
I ordered these shades for my office and guest bedroom. They are a warm vanilla/cream color and add a nice subtle treatment to the windows. They offer some privacy and soft light filtering. They were easy to install and seem decent quality for the price. Would purchase again.
