Ordering was easy. Price was good. Shipping was fast. Installation was straight-forward. The blinds look good. We ordered the cordless version and the only concern we have is with the cordless operation. Raising and lowering the blinds works, but it is not nearly as smooth as other products we sampled. You really have to pull on then to lower the blinds. And because the control is not precise, lowering then all the way to the window sill is a challenge. Usually they raise back up about an inch or so on their own. This is not a deal-breaker, just something to be aware of. What is a real challenge is getting the louvers to tilt at the correct angle. Because these are completely cordless there is no want to tilt the louvers. Instead the louvers tilt upwards when you raise the blinds and downwards when you lower them. This means that if you want the blinds lowered all the way to the sill, but have the louvers open so you can see out, you must actually lower the blinds PAST the sill just the right amount, and then raise them some to get the louvers to tilt up, and hope the bottom bar rests exactly on the sill. And because there is a lack of precision, this is quite a challenge. Even when the bottom bar is not all the way down, getting the correct angle on the louvers is difficult. Remember I said that they tend to raise back up a bit when you let go of the bottom bar? This causes the angle of the louvers to change when you let go. So overall they are good blinds, but knowing what I know now, I would definitely have ordered the version with the wand for better control the angle of the louvers.

Hard to install by 11-11-2016



The 2" faux wood cordless blinds are a very good product, but installation is quite a challenge. No instructions are sent, and I dowloaded the wrong instructions from the confusing website at first. Spent half an hour on the phone to SelectrBlinds to finally receive the correct instructions. These are pictures only, no words, hard to understand and difficult to implement. Be prepared for hours of effort and frustration.

Not great at blocking light by 07-11-2018



So these blinds claim "providing maximum room darkening when closed". Which didn't seem to be true compared to other faux wood blinds I've had. Otherwise with the close wand I can close the slats quite a bit. These s-wave blinds when closed always have a gap (at least 1/8") that lets in a lot of light. So we'll be moving them to some windows that it isn't an issue. We will be ordering different blinds for the windows in a room that we originally wanted these for.

We love our blinds by 10-05-2016



We love our blinds, but one box was damaged and missing the hardware (which you have replaced) and our order took a long time to ship and even then, one window's blinds were on back order.
