Question

If I were to order 29 x64, 29 is the exact width of the blind, or the blind with the hardware?

answer 2
a 29 inch would really be 28 and 3/4
answered 2 years, 3 months ago

answer 3
These blinds do NOT have the little square brackets that go on each end, like the cheaper blinds you may be used to.

Instead, they each come with 2 MEDAL brackets that can be mounted on the INSIDE on your wood window seal, OR on the OUTSIDE of your wood seal or plastering of your walls.

So, if you buy a 29 inch blind for a 29 inch measurement, it will fit perfectly for INSIDE mounting, but I would recommend a 30 inch if you install for OUTSIDE WOOD or WALL PLASTER mounting, as it would them cover the edges of the windows so no light will come in.

I ordered 46" W, & got 45 3/4", which fits just fine into my 46 1/4 opening. The window length is something like 40", & I have about a dozen slats left over which I haven't tried to take out, but probably could. I just leave the blinds fully open all the time, & change the tilt of the slats to keep out sun or let in "shade" and view.

No, you cannot use mini blind brackets. You'll have to remove those brackets and install the brackets that come with the 2 inch blinds. Also, these blinds keep out some of the light & make your room darker but they do not keep out all of the light and your room will not be completely dark.

They're a kind of rough/ lined / simulated wood grain light brown plastic. They don't bear up well under close scrutiny, but just walking around the house after a hard day's work, I find them very "soothing", especially for the price.

It's kind of a light brown rough plastic with simulated wood grain finish. It won't fool anyone into thinking it's wood, but as I've said in previous reviews, it's "soothing" in color and texture compared to "shiny" plastic.

The color of these is the same that is shown in the photo. Also, I'm assuming that your measurement of 35 1/2" is the width of the window for an inside mount? If so, I would just get the 35" ones. The gap is not significant, and if anything, should aid in the installation of the blinds.
However, if you want absolutely no gaps, then I would order a wider size, and mount outside the window opening, so it covers the entire width of the window.

answer 8
The color of the blinds are what I'd say are a little darker than an oak color. We've been using pecan stain on our cubbards and they match my cubbards perfectly.
I did find that when I ordered a 31" width blind, it wasn't true to size, it was only 29 1/2". I'd say order a 36" blind incase it's cut short on the sides and you can always return and re order if necessary.
If you are hanging on the inside of the window frame, the top portion of the blind where the brackets go are larger than the smaller slat blinds, I'm going to say a 2" x 2" cube.
I hope this helps answer any of your questions.

NO they are not. I have purchased both kinds. The white faux wood blinds are completely different. Those blinds are thicker, heavier and stiffer. These are the equivalent of cheaper vinyl slatted shades that would cost you $4-$10 dollars but they have wider 2" slats instead. That being said I like these blinds. But they are a very specific color.

They are the same as those in the store. Faux wood products are typically made from PVC (vinyl) but the process foams the PVC so you get a thicker, more substantial part without adding the weight. Wood is less dense than plain vinyl so the faux wood mimics that density.
