I bought these blinds to replace the Mainstays alabaster light-filtering blinds on two east-facing windows in my living room that let in too much bright morning sun. I wanted blinds of a similar color that would match the light-filtering blinds on an adjacent (northern) wall's windows but block out more of the light. Unfortunately, these room-darkening blinds don't appear to keep the sunlight out any better than the light-filtering type. And the off-white color of the blinds looks a mottled pinkish beige when the sun is shining on them. The pictures I'm including with this review were taken around 7am. Both sets of blinds are installed in the same room on side by side east-facing windows.

I do like the mini-blinds I ordered but will NEVER order from Walmart again. I ordered 5 mini-blinds. The actual package is about 5" wide x 24" long x 2" deep. Imagine my surprise when there was knock on my door from the delivery man saying I had 5 BIG boxes. Big doesn't even begin to describe it. Each box was about 18" side x 26" long x 24" high. Inside each box was a long, crumpled strip of brown packaging paper--long meaning extended through my dining room and living room and then some. Inside, at the very bottom of the big box, was a little box with the mini-blinds. What a waste! Not only did you waste the big box (not needed--my other set of wider mini-blinds came in their own box and were just fine), you wasted all that paper and I'm sure it cost more to ship the big box. I was left with lots of material to unpack and recycle. Very disappointed!!! Like I said--no more Walmart ordering for me.

I have been using some temporary coated paper blinds with adhesive at the top to replace some existing metal mini blinds that I could not manage cleaning. These fit pefectly in the existing hardware. Bonus since the window casements are plaster, cement or the like. I got the 46" size light filtering first for $9 but too short even though I followed the box measurements and no problem with returning them. The 47" room darkening fit just right, my window opening measured 46 5/8. They seem and feel cheap... some sort of vinyl plastic not sure how long they will actually last in the California sun, room faces the east, but for under $20 they meet the need. I was replacing some sort of coated paper temporary ones from target that fall apart in the sun. The valance single slat to cover up the hardware came broken -- slit about 1" from end. I did not have to use hardware so no comment on installation from starting from the beginning. They do seem to darken the room but not like blackout curtains -- not sure what is difference between light filtering and darkening except price. I picked them up at the store, I didn't prepay and order on line. Looking at the instructions, pictures and words -- good to have both.

We purchased these blinds so that we could darken our room because of a 3rd shift worker. First of all, they don't darken the room. If you can get them installed without them breaking, that is. We had to also get room darkening curtains because of the light that was let through. After only a month or so, the blinds are warped! One set has melted so badly that part of the ends are folded completely downward. The other set is melted and saggy. They are placed on the side of the house that faces the sun all day, so I'm not sure how they'd be on the shaded side. So after wasting money on these, we'll be purchasing wooden blinds instead. Don't waste your money on these cheap things...

I wanted an easy way to allow light in during the day and to provide privacy at night. These blinds perform these functions nicely. I can even provide light through the top half of the windows during the day while still ensuring some privacy on the lower half of my first floor windows by lightly “brushing down” the slats on the bottom half to close them– perfect!

You can't beat the price for these nice blinds. They are not the most impressive or fancy. They don't completely blacken the room. But they install easy and look neat and clean, and can be dressed up with sheers or valances. The one I bought today is my third, having bought a pair (at a higher price elsewhere). I like the vinyl, which looks a lot more upscale than shiny aluminum blinds (eek). Ivory and white are nice neutral colors, but I'll bet they would sell more if one could get these in other shades like forest green, dove gray, oak brown, and other neutral colors. Installation is very easy and user friendly. I was replacing the same blind, so I just had to slide one out and put the other in. But I put in the brackets when I first installed them. The instructions are clear, they have photos, and a drill and screw driver and you are good to go. Most come in common sizes. These blinds also are great if you want more privacy at night but don't want anything to overpower nice sheers that are the main window treatment.

Good Functional Blinds, Low Cost
1/26/2016

Customer review by MizM

These room darkening, off-white mini blinds were better quality than I expected for the cost. We moved into a manufactured home in Florida, and had windows to cover, especially in our office where it was important to control the huge amount of sunlight we were getting from 9 large windows and 3 celestory windows, around three walls of our office space. We couldn't see our computer screens from all the sunlight. We first experimented with the white Mainstays room darkening mini blinds, buying three at the local Walmart brick and mortar store to make sure they were at least functional and put them on the upper celestory windows. They worked well, so we took the plunge and bought the 9 off white blinds (I didn't realize until after purchasing the store bought blinds that online blinds are off-white, they don't sell simply white online, and there weren't enough white blinds in the store to cover all our windows.) The difference between off-white and white is minimal, can hardly tell. The off-white does have a limited soft and subdued pinkish, peachy glow when sunlight is coming directly through them that I actually like. As far as room darkening capabilities, our office is not dark in the daytime with them all closed, the light was cut by half I would say, but it did filter out that direct piercing glare on our computer screens so we were happy. From reading the reviews I learned that more light can be cut by turning the slat controlling rod in the other direction, with slats turned all the way upward and closed, less light peeps in through the slats. A minimal amount of light does come through between the slats when the blind is closed with slats facing downward. Our main concern was being able to control the sunlight coming through, and we are able to do that to a pretty good degree. The office by day has a friendly look now when all the blinds are closed tight, there is still light in here, no need to turn on a lamp. But I doubt seriously that even expensive room darkening blinds would cut any more light because of the number and size of our windows. Probably black out curtains would be the only thing that would make it any darker in here which we chose not to do because there are times we like to see our view of trees and water, and the mini blinds allow for that without much difficulty, just turning the rod. As for how long they will last, we've only had them up a week so can't say. We don't raise and lower them a lot on purpose, just use the slat turning rod, as we want to keep their wear and tear to a minimum as, after all, they were the most inexpensive blinds on the market. Delivery was no problem, the boxes they were boxed in were almost the exact same size as the blinds them selves, no excess packaging. My husband had no problem putting them all up by himself, did so over a three day period, four each day. The first blind he said was the most difficult to install, but once he learned how, it was easy for the remaining blinds. So far no problems with any of the blinds. We do recommend them. And for us, they are a darn sight better than the alternative we were using, which was cardboard!

Room darkening blinds

Customer review by JByers

I'm not sure why these are advertised as "room darkening" blinds. They are not. We purchased 2 of these for the glass doors on our master bedroom. When anyone walks down the hallway at night the light would shine thru the drapes and wake us up. The light still shines through-but doesn't wake us as often. They are flimsy and don't close tight enough to be darkening and the light even comes thru the area where the cables to control the blinds are. They are inexpensive standard mini blinds. We will never open them, so I expect them to hold up for years. If you put them in a room where you would actually open or close them, I think they would break easily. They were so inexpensive that they were worth every penny to us for covering the glass in the doors. But, I would not reccommend them as room darkening blinds.

You pay for what you get? Well I think that isn't the case here. These window blinds look great and are not expensive at all! You would think that if they weren't expensive you wouldn't be satisfied with the item, well I really like how they look & would purchase them again for the rest of my house.

Great mini blinds for the money. They do what I need them to do. The only thing is I ordered a 30 wide and they came in a 29 1/2 wide, just take that in to concideration when ordering.

This blind works somewhat, if you're needing it to say, darken a room to sleep, it will work fine but if you're buying it to block light from a window that shines on your TV . . . don't bother, get some insulated curtains instead.

It's hard to find wider shades in stores so it's nice when items can be ordered on line and receive them within a weeks. They are easy to hang and work well even though they are wide shades. These are all good benefits for older people.

These blinds are billed as "room-darkening" and they do an excellent job of blocking most of outside light. Great for the bedroom.
