This is my first honeycomb blind purchase. I purchased this blind with the TDBU feature and really like this option. The blind allows a soft natural glow to enter the room (it is in a bathroom), but also offer the needed privacy. I will be curious to see how durable it is. The only thing I did not like about this blind was the installation. I followed the directions, but could not install the blind. After inspection, I discovered that the installation instructions were wrong and did not allow for enough clearance to clear the end pieces. I had to remove the brackets and re-drill the holes an additional 1/2" more toward the center on each side. Once I moved the brackets, the blind snapped easily into place. The blind took a little longer to make than I expected; it was over 3 weeks. Email communication was OK; I was notified at 14 days that my order would take longer. I was not notified that my order had shipped; although I was pleasently surprised when it did arrive.
On the first set I made an error when I ordered the length. I reordered the same drapes with the correct lengths and am completely satisfied with the result. The installationwould have been easier had you mentioned the clip distance is relative to the length of the headrail ands transferred to the window opening.
the phone help to order was useful. I like the blinds and they look good up. I was not able to install following the instructions as drilled holes 2" from the edge and would hit nails, 3" out worked better. The top down feature is nice though of course adds more strings. I have found consistently that the shades do not go to the bottom of the window--approx 1 1/2" gap
I have seen alot better blinds but for the money not bad
We're happy with our top/down, bottom/up cellular shades that we ordered although they were a little scratched and 1 out of 4 didn't catch/hold its position, which required contacting customer service, waiting for a new part to arrive and then self-installing new part without any directions. Not Ideal.
