Great buy for the dimension of the blinds
The blinds were easy to assemble and install. We had to adjust the length to maintain an optimum fit but the directions supplied provided adequate modification instructions. These blinds were hard to find items due to the narrow width. Other wood blinds found were considerably more expensive and shipping added to the expense. Other than the blinds not being real wood and somewhat difficult to open and close, I would recommend them to others.
Great blinds, but a couple concerns!!
We ordered 20+ blinds in this model.
The first shipment had 2 blinds messed up.
Blind 1: broken (plastic physically broken) & missing hardware set
Blind 2: broken (metal bar that helps turn blinds was off center, and gears were messed up) & missing hardware set
We then returned those items in the store, and re ordered.
Those items were received yesterday and 50% of the order was correct:
Blind 1: all good
Blind 2: metal bar for turning blinds was messed up, but slid back in

and all was good; big issue: missing hardware AGAIN.
1) package product better so that hardware is retained during shipping process (shipping via the main delivery companies typically means the boxes arrive mangled)
2) and/or make sure the factory actually packages the hardware.
3) package products so that the metal bar doesn't slip out of place and ruin cords/gears
This has been incredibly frustrating.
Look like they were custom made
We have tall and skinny windows in our family room. After I made my husband measure the inside of the windows several times, we considered many different types of blinds and settled on these white faux wood blinds based on their dimensions. The size specified was dead on. My husband installed all four of them in under an hour. They are perfect. The blinds keep out enough light to allow us to see the TV without glare during the day and they keep the room cool. This was a good buy.
