Working with a very tight budget to cover seven windows, but knowing that I wanted this type of product, I took a chance on buying the shades. They look beautiful, and are on par with similar products costing a minimum of 3x the price for the same size. Two cautions, though. 1) You (or your installer) will need to be creative in their installation. I've worked professionally with window treatments of all types, and the brackets provided are beyond frustrating. After a dry fit, I tossed out the brackets and instructions, and installed these in my own manner. 2) No bamboo shades are "easily" trimmed with a fine tooth saw. The bamboo cracks easily - it's best to not try to adjust the width. They do have a 27" metal headrail, however, the bamboo can range up to1/4" wider than the headrail. Since very few windows remain the same width all the way from top to bottom, please measure your window width in several places. If you're willing to put up with these headaches, you'll love the finished look!

I wanted these for basement windows so wasn't looking for high quality. They are hard to hang. The hardware is cheap and I worked for 40 minutes trying to attach the blind to the hardware. It is hanging but I can't touch it or it will fall down. I haven't attempted to hang the other two yet. I am disappointed, I have always had high quality items from Sierra, but these are not among them.

Once you get a couple up you get used to putting them up. The directions didn't help much at all but I managed to figure them out. I would suggest if you have a man to help you recruit him for sure. It is very akward to hold up the blind while securring each side to the brackets above. You need a lot of muscle to flip the brackets into their spot with the blind. I thought....the screws can't be as bad as what the previous reviews said! They are WORSE!!! Don't even bother to try to use them, they are horrible. I would also pre-drill the holes if you have a small enough bit. That made it a lot easier to get the brackets in place. Blinds are great quality, especially for the price I paid.
