The colors are not anywhere as intense as they appear in the photo, which is disappointing but acceptable. The necessary screws/hooks were not included, but substitutes were used successfully. The instruction sheet is insufficient for people like me who have never installed blinds like this before. All that said, the blinds screen out enough light and provide good privacy. They appear to be sturdy enough. If I had not had a gift card I would not have bought them at this price.
