I got the "smart privacy 2 1/2" blinds" (I couldn't find them on the list to select to review, so I just selected privacy blinds) and LOVE that they are the wider slats AND that the string hole is at the back so when you open or close the slats, there
are no visible holes or light coming through the holes! I was hesitant to do the privacy NO HOLE blinds because I have little kids that may pull the slats out if they aren't somehow connected. I also LOVE the tilt STRING instead of the wand! So much faster
and less chance of the mechanism going bad as the wands often do, its faster to tilt them open or closed, AND you don't have to worry about the wand breaking off or getting lost (or becoming "swords" or "lightsabers" in my imaginative childrens' minds :) They
seem well made, but mine are big (some 70" x 58") so I am hesitant to raise and lower the blinds too much for fear of breaking the string. They are harder to raise and lower than my smaller blinds from a different company, but this is probably due to their
size and they would probably be like that regardless of who made them. I received the blinds in a timely manner and when there was a problem with the valances, they were quick to fix the problem. A GREAT deal for the huge sizes I needed and I ordered them
when they had one of their 30% off buy 3 get one free specials!
We have all but 2 installed they look greatI bought the no holes, I probably should have bought the ones with holes.
Very happy with these blinds. I have ordered online from another company several times but this was the best value by far.
Super easy from ordering to installation. These blinds made me look like a professional!
dont really look like wood - look plastic
