Rated 5 out of 5
by Puddin Perfect!!
I've had one of these in my kitchen window for over 3 years. Last week it split from the hot desert sun so I ordered a replacement. The shade needs to be trimmed to fit but that is a very simple task. These keep the light and the heat out extremely well and I am super pleased. I tried the other shade that isn't homey comb and it doesn't do nearly as well keeping the heat/sun out, though it looked just fine. Please see photos I attached. Thank you JCP for the speedy delivery and quality products. I bought five total so I always have extras since I have these installed in 4 windows. Five stars all the way around!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bubbles Nightmare installation
Installing this was a nightmare. No window is perfectly round, but this fits only a perfectly round window. We had to cut it a bit shorter to fit it in the window, which we finally figured out. But then the weight of it caused the fabric to bend and collapse in on itself in the middle, so it has clumps of dark compressed areas. Nothing we did could smooth these out. The nails were impossible so it is mounted just with the sticky tape provided. It does not look good. But, of course, we can't return it now. If I could do it over again I would not get the insulated blind, but just the plain pleated paper one. Then it would be lighter, hold its shape, and be easier to cut to fit the window. It would still block some of the sunlight and keep the room a bit cooler even without the insulation. We may end up taking this one out and doing just that, it looks so bad. And my husband is a handy man! This was way too impossible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dave Works for hard-to-insulate windows
It's just what it says--arch window shade that really helps block heat. I have dual pane windows, and this shade helps with the rest while still allowing great light through.
I'd love to see a small redesign to give the arch better support from within the shade itself so one side of the shade could be mounted with hook and loop or a clip of some sort that would allow the shade to be opened completely.
Fantastic value in this shade.

This shade was perfect for our arched window & provides ample shade on a sunny day. The cellular design is much more expensive at other places.

Ready-made shades this size are hard to find, and the alternative is expensive, custom-made ones. These shades look great, and I installed them without the added hardware by tilting them slightly toward the window.

Rated 5 out of 5 by doone Cuts sunlight and heat coming in through the windows.
The celluar shades were just what we needed to cut down on the sun coming in the arched window in the bedroom and dining room.
It also makes the rooms cooler.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Robert Good value product. Decent quality. Bad instructions to install. Ignore the screws, Glue it, instead.
The product is decent and a great value for the price.
I had problem installing the product, as per instructions provided.
I could not figure out how to "attach", after the brackets are in place and screwed to the window sill/bottom frame. It seems impossible to do it. I finally ignored the instructions to screw down the brackets and I instead glued the whole assembly to the window bottom frame.
If the word "attach" meant "snap in", the plastic is too hard to flex- snap.
It may work okay, if the window sill protrudes (out of the wall). In which case one can "slide" the whole assembly from either side.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jeeps2009 No longer blinded by the sun
I purchased 3 sets of these arch blinds after a very disappointing experience with 3day blinds. I read the reviews for these blinds so I expected that I would have to cut these to fit my windows. It was not horrible cutting the blinds if you have the right saw. Once cut the blinds were very easy to install. Are they the perfect fit, no but they are pretty darn close and they look nice. These blinds do the job, keeping the sun out and the privacy in. I would recommend these to my friends.
