We live in a meadow with lots of trees, so I wanted lots of light but still have privacy. I chose white shades as our rooms are small and these made the rooms appear larger and brighter! It took me 10 min per shade to install after the first one.
These blinds work well for privacy and are easy to close/open. Easy to install. I would add 1/2 inch to 1 inch to the length for inside mount -- I sbmitted the actual window length and after installation they don't quite reach the window sill.
I got four these shades and the quality are really below average compared to the other cellular shades I ordered from different websites. Cheap materials, and the bottom rail does not keep at the same level when they are pulled down! Very annoying though the price is cheap.
These blinds are great, they look sleek and modern in both rooms I put them in. I would recommend getting them a little longer than your actual window height to leave room for some natural rise (so you don't need to pull them to their full extension to cover the window). The plastic tabs to use as handles look a little cheap, but these are optional. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.
The cordless top-down, bottom-up blinds are the bomb. Very easy to install. Nice looking. Good quality. Love 'em!
