getting fabric samples was a great start. the actual roman shades are beautiful. well made and will last for years. the diagrams for installation instructions were a little confusing. the manufacturer needs to have an user help them so they will be clearer.
After searching all the home accessory stores this was quite a find. The pricing was comparable and in some cases less. Sending the swatches out is the best. I ordered quite a few and it was so helpful in making my decision. The shade fit perfectly and it was so easy to install. I am extremely satisfied!
