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
This shade was exactly what I was looking for. Our house is a little older and has very wide windows. I was looking at spending a fortune for window treatments until I found this. It blocks just enough light and gives great privacy for my home office. It also looks great on our shorter window.
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.
I have 4 large windows in my family room and connecting formal living room and have found these faux wood blinds add a perfect taylored window treatment to both rooms including great outside curb appeal. I do not have the exact window measurements to match the available lengths. As a result they were hung as exteriors. The only disappointment I have is side pieces were not included with the valance making them look somewhat unfinished. I doubt that too many people notice it but unfortunately I do and missed it when I ordered the blinds. If this is not an issue for you, then you'll be totally delighted with this purchase.
