Really nice, just wish the brackets were easier to shorten. They have a line, but it doesnt just cut off. Hate the look of it hanging over the shade at the top.

These are the best of both worlds with regards to blinds and shades. The concept is really great. Only problem is they are quite overpriced and quality is a little low. We have these on 8 windows. If they were not so expensive I would put them in every
room of the house. Early on one of the control loops broke and came out. This made the shade unusable and the defect could only be fixed in the factory. It was a real pain to get a replacement. Durability remains a question. I worry about the other control
loops where there are glue joints. I would recommend only if money is no object and if they prove to hold up over time.

Product Info


Description

Get started on that room transformation now with these Designer window shades! The new @Home Collection by Carriann offers Solid colors and Textured colors in the VuThru Room Darkening Blinds. What does VuThru mean? No matter where your blind is positioned, with the pull of a cord you can collapse the “cells” into “slats” providing a view to the outside. These blinds are a great alternative for any room where light blockage is necessary or preferred. The shades come standard with a continuous cord loop that allows for easy and smooth operation. A color coordinated headrail completes the designer look and offers the same energy saving benefits of a classic honeycomb cellular shade. As with all of our products, these innovative shades come with a limited lifetime warranty.

All cellular shades except VuThru
Width:
  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the wooden or metal window frame or how wide you would like the blind or shade to be.
  • Make sure to measure wide enough as to cover the entire window and provide maximum light gap coverage. Example: if the window opening is 72", it might be helpful to order 76". This will provide 2" coverage on each side of the window.
  • There is no rule on the width of blinds other than to make sure that it is wide enough to cover the opening.
  • Fabric will be made at ordered width and headrail will be made at ordered width plus 1/4".
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the first number of the measurement.

Height:
  • Measure the height you would like the blind to be by measuring top to bottom.
  • We recommend adding about 3 or 4 inches to this number to insure maximum light gap coverage and to cover the window completely.
  • Please be sure to know that the height measurement will always include the headrail. Example: if the height ordered is 50", this will be the height including the headrail (from the very top of the headrail to the bottom rail).
  • You will want to mount the headrail above the window frame. Please make a note that some windows have trim that might interfere with mounting so it's important to measure above the trim if this is the case.
  • *width and length measurements may vary +/- 1/8"
