I purchased over 20 of these for my entire house. Overall, I am very happy with them - especially for the price. I like the fact that they have difference shade of tans and browns. They work in every room of my house. The only thing that caught me by surprise is that you can see right through them. So, at night, you can see into my house when a light is on...to include my bedroom ;-( . I bought them for privacy...and I don't get any privacy at night (unless my lights are turned of). It guess that is expected for unlined bamboo shades. The only way you would have complete privacy is if they were lined or you close drapes infront of them. My mom had the same issue with different bamboo blinds she purchased. With that said, I have decided to rate these as a 5 (even with the privacy issue). They were easy to install, quick shipping, as described, and a perfect color. I would purchase again and would recommend to friends.
