I purchased this blind for my office, which I was giving a makeover after our daughter left for college. I wanted something that could reduce the morning glare on my computer screen and yet still look great in the window. I am very satisfied with this purchase. The Espresso color has a dark-wood (without the grain) look to it and accents my office quite well. The product has that custom wood blind feel, without the cost. Extremely durable blind. The blind blocks out sunlight extremely well.
The installation was very easy and straightforward. As with all window products, I found the screws to be somewhat lacking in length and grip. For my installation, I mounted the blind inside the window-box (outside and above the window is also an installation option, the brackets work for both) and used long wood screws (~3") to grab into the header. This blind is quite heavy and is of solid construction, so I wanted to ensure the mount was more than adequate. Once the brackets were installed, it was a simple matter of lifting the blind into place and locking the brackets down. The valence is very easy to install and looks great. There is no sagging in the blind, whatsoever.
Depending on the size of your window, this can be a one person job. My window is 72" wide and I was able to install this solo.
I recommend measuring three separate times prior to ordering, just to ensure you get it right. If anything, lean towards being a little small on the measurement instead of too long. The brackets allow for a little play between them and the ends of the blind (~1/4"-1/2"). The cut from the factory was spot on, square, with no noticeable marring of the blind.
I was so impressed with this blind that I purchased another one for my wife's office. And we intend on buying these blinds for the remaining windows throughout the house. I highly recommend this product.

I bought these primarily because they match the blinds the previous owner left in other rooms - easy decision. While installing, I realized the header is cut ~1/2" short, just as the blinds are, relative to the order size. That's normal for blinds & shades - but for this product, it leaves enough space for the header to jostle sideways in the mounting brackets (I did an inside mount - I think that this would be less of an issue for an outside mount). I used the workaround I saw in the other sets and wedged some of the cardboard the blinds came in at either end of the header, inside the brackets. Problem solved.

My daughter (who is moderately handy) installed these blinds in 15 minutes. If she had power tools it would have been less.

These faux wood blinds really dress up a window especially when installed inside the window frame. The pulls work easily.

I was looking at products everywhere, I needed blinds now. Easy installation, fast and simple.
When I was doing the installation it was 100 degrees, after installation there was a dramatic effect on the comfort of my home.

Easy to install. Simple. Beautiful. I really like the trim piece at the top that covers the mechanism. I would buy these again.
