Customer Reviews for Sidelights Free Cordless Upgrade Sheer Window Shades
"Beautiful Alternate Choice"
By VS from San Antonio, Texas
We added a pavilion to our home and turned a window into a door going out to it. I actually ordered these because there was an existing door, directly across from the new one, that already one of these on it. It was important that the shades match. The company was very wonderful to work with. They followed up with me to ensure that I was provided with color swatches in order to get the correct color and that I ordered the correct size. They were very customer service oriented and never made me feel uncomfortable about any questions that I asked. The website did show conflicting information regarding the hardware choices, which the sales rep. I spoke with pointed out right away to his supervisor. The one that I already had was mounted with white hardware, which was no longer an option. I would have preferred to have them both the same, but the silver hardware was all that was available. Once mounted, it actually looks ok, but just isn't exactly what I would have preferred. Unlike the other review, I actually like the design with the tab at the top center of the blinds to open and close them. Since this is on a door, I don't have to worry about people or pets getting tangled up in cords or strings getting caught in doors. I think the design is actually perfect for doors and presents as a very clean and streamlined design. I think the fabric is very elegant looking. It allows light to come into the room, and it provides way more privacy than you would expect. I think the overall quality is excellent, particularly based on cheaper versions I have seen. Since I have some older ones that were already installed, I can tell you that they hold up very well and look no differently than the new one I just had installed. I was a little surprised at the cost, but when compared to other brands and styles that would have been of comparable quality, this was slightly less than the market average. I am very pleased with my purchase and would feel comfortable recommending them to anyone. I think you can purchase with confidence that they will make your room look very elegant, instead of ordinary, and the fabric and design will hold up well for a very long time.View this product
"JUST LIKE THE BIG NAMED BRAND!"
By Sheer Shade Queen from Powell, Ohio
We moved into a small condo and wanted to protect our privacy as well as our new hard wood floors from sun damage, so we called the "professionals". They came, measured and 3 weeks later they installed our new "silhouette" blinds. Perfect, beautiful, just what we wanted. But for that kind of money, we would never be able to afford to cover all of our windows in a timely fashion. After receiving several color samples from Blindsgalore, we decided to get the Good Housekeeping brand of the same looking product for more than a 50% savings! And then we got them on a day when they were on sale and got an additional 48% off! I mean, that's some money!! The color matches PERFECTLY to the other's we had previously bought. We did not get absolute blackout capability with any of our blinds, we just got room darkening which is quite different. So if you want a very dark room don't get these. But if you want to be able to pull them up all the way out of the view, you can. If you want a little more of a private view or to block the sun, open them to the desired angle. If you want total privacy, close them up! They act just like venetian blinds but have sheers on the inside and the outside for more privacy. We absolutely love them! And when they are closed in the day, they look very modern with the lines going horizontally. We wanted that so we did not put up window treatments beyond the blinds. Also, when you receive them don't be bummed-out if there appears to be a large gap on each side. The gap gives room for the pulley type mechanism to work. They all have that, even the expensive ones. But from outside, nothing is visible. My husband meausred and hung them in no time at all. The packaging was tremendous and they arrived quickly and on time. All parts were included. We would highly recommend them to anybody who likes to have a choice of privacy. We absolutely LOVE our Good Housekeeping sheer shades and have received many compliments on how great they look.View this product
