Our puppy destroyed a blind we had that is no longer available so we needed a new set--not a good time to buy either. I found these blinds and bought three. Yes you can tell a difference between the quality of these blinds and the ones we had BUT at a fraction of the price, they are plenty fine! They look nice and mechanically work well. I ended up ordering seven total for less money than I had spent on any ONE of my custom blinds. We found a video online for how to cut the blinds, and did it with a table saw.

Just ordered and received two more of these blinds. Already have two that we have been using for three years now out on the west side of the house to shade the patio and the potted plants. They are sturdy, well made and do the job. Only had to add ( stapled) a 1" X 1" board to bottom for weight since they are outdoors. Wife just told me this morning to order one more set and that should cover the whole patio area. Cannot find anything locally to come close to the quality and price.

Bought 4 of the 4'x 6' size for use in lieu of "doors" for shelving units in basement for dishes, appliances, tools etc. Good clear instructions. Installation hardware and roll-up cords are pretty cheap. Replaced supplied hooks from which the shades are meant to hang with larger bolts. Units look pretty nice, at least for a basement, but best not for living room. When installing, take care to accurately level & center the shade before drilling holes for hangers or bolts.
Best Uses: For secondary room
Cons: Best not for living room, Cords weak, Hardware is weak

I should have read the other reviews, this products is so cheap! Do not even bother using the hardware in the package. THey are indeed nice to look at , but almost impossible to install. The cords were unraveled and now they are non functional.Don't waste your money!

I have a sun porch with 10 windows and a sliding door and we needed to block the neighbors' view of our hot tub. These blinds are great for that. They don't block the sun, and you have to be very careful when trimming them or they sort of unravel, but as an inexpensive solution to what could have been an expensive problem, they are fine.
