We got our latest blinds from Blindsgalore on Tuesday and must say we are very pleased with them. This is the blurb about them:
Sheer blinds, also called sheer shades, are refined, elegant and versatile window treatments. Comparable to the Silhouette, sheer horizontal blinds feature two sheer fabric facings over soft fabric vanes. Sheer vertical blinds feature a light filtering material between hanging fabric or vinyl vanes. Blindsgalore offers discount sheer shades from Bali, Levolor & Comfortex as well as our own signature line.
In Canada I only see the one type of sheer blind to order, I think they have more selection in the States.
It is raining today so I couldn't get good photos. I didn't order blinds for the doors, but am going to now as I like them so much.
The two windows below took dh all of 30 minutes to install them, as he had the tools and step ladder out.
There are three brackets on this window with two screws in each bracket. You need a tape measure, a pencil, a drill to drill a pilot hole and a screw driver to screw the screws in. That is it.
As the side windows are less than 24 inches wide, we only used two brackets.
They let plenty of light in, but give us privacy at the same time. Very pleased with the quality. Now I didn't get a price on the Hunter Douglas Silhouette blinds, but I am guessing these were half the price and as good a quality.
