I live in house with 8 windows measuring 34 in. x 75 in. I ordered the bamboo shades for three of my windows to start out with because I wasn't sure if they would look too short in the window. They looked perfect and so unique! Most of the other homes in my neighborhood choose to use the standard white wood or fake wood blinds. These bamboo shades add such character to the house that I decided to buy them for my other five windows. The variation in color is so nice - warm tones that bring out the stone colors in my fireplace. The price you cannot beat! It's a fraction of the cost that you would pay for other blinds! Installing was so easy - if you know how to use a drill and a screwdriver. The brackets really make a difference. I shortened the cords so that my 2 year old would not be able to reach them. The only small complaint I have is that the first three blinds I received make a squeaky noise when I put them up and down - but nothing I can't fix with some WD40. Hands down - the best purchase I have made for my house so far and I'm so proud to say that I paid a fraction of the cost for each window!!
