Questions & Answers for Generic Bali Size-at-Home Vinyl Roller Shade, Reed Natural

Question

How are the blinds "sized down"?

A straight cut is not my strong point. Does it come with any sizing chart or are you on your own to measure and cut? What does it look like when this is done? Are there jagged lines, etc? I'm especially worried about the outside white and the inside reed disconnecting once it's cut. Any tips on what to do/not to do would be appreciated. My fiance is a carpenter, so I know he can measure well, but drapery precision and it looking "pretty" has me concerned.

This product is very easy to size no matter who you are. My experience is to install the included brackets first, then measure, twice. I placed one end of shade in bracket and marked the other end with pen where the cut had to be made. The first shade I did have to cut twice, as I was scared to make it shorter than needed. Once you make the mark, you cut about an inch then tear the shade. It should be a straight line if you turn and tear on the end marked "size this end". Once shade part is sized, the inner pole just slides down into itself. Then you hang on brackets to ensure you are set. Once you are happy, then cut the plastic rod insert (which runs along the bottom and keeps shade sharp looking) and break off at proper width. Guess what.... you are done. It took me about 20 mins to install the first one and my other windows took about 10 mins each (I did 4 west facing windows). The reed is a look only, not actual reeds. The vinyl is "pictured" with reed design. It is real looking from a distance. With the sun behind shade it has a very nice design and glow. The white on outside is great for anyone who has a HOA (home owners association) that limits what can be seen from the outside of the home. Good luck and enjoy. If you have questions, feel free to hit me up. Take care.

These shade are not real reed, just printed vinyl that looks surprisingly natural and real so you needn't worry about separation. You're on your own with sizing- best to hang your brackets first & measure the width inside of them. I measured my window opening and had to keep trimming the edge due to loss from the brackets. I sized two ways- one by unrolling fully, measuring, drawing lines, and using a straight edge and an exacto knife- VERY hard to roll back up perfectly and the shade constantly was over on one side or the other. The second time I followed their directions for the tear cut (cut hem with scissors while rolled up and tear) and I was surprised at how easy and how smooth and even the edge was. So I would definitely recommend doing it that way.

It's pretty thin vinyl, I think a dog could tear it up pretty easily.

one side is white, the other side is bamboo (various shades of tan/brown).
I bought to go under a bamboo roman shade to keep the sun out in the morning. So , I actually hung it with the bamboo color outside ( to match my other shades from the street view) and white inside.
