These blinds were the answer to a quest for blinds that would actually fit my long narrow windows. The width was perfect and the fact that there was an option for the length allowed me the select the appropriate size without having to trim off excess slats as with other ready made blinds I had previously purchased. The slats are of substantial quality, easy to open and close and raise up and down. Installation was very simple. I will order these blinds for other rooms in my home.
