Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Arriving with everything needed to put this blind up, it was very easy to install. It blocks glaring sunlight – nothing can get through this. To be precise, there are two alternatives: to block 50% or 100% sunlight. Other amazing features include thermal insulation and noise reduction to let you rest.
These shades are made of a strong and thick material that provides insulation. The blinds are operated via a simple cord mechanism. They will block all sunlight and UV rays in blackout mode so that absolute privacy is ensured. The fabric reduces outside noises from filtering in.
Blackout roller shades can block out noise. Part of the reason is the heaviness of the blinds adds an extra layer of thickness. The UV protected blinds come with all hardware to easily put these blinds up. With the ability to insulate, these blinds provide privacy but also save energy.

What reviewers didn't like

The material feels a little unconventional at first, it’s almost like vinyl.
Keep in mind fabric is about 1.2 inches less than shade width. The warranty and/or return policy for these blackout roller shades are unclear.
