Works Well as an Interior Blind
I reluctantly bought this blind to install inside my house. I thought the fabric would be too stiff and might have a smell. The fabric is not stiff, looks high quality and there was absolutely no smell. I bought the 37¼"w X 72"l" and the fabric actually measures 36" and the entire blind including the installed hardware measures 37" so be forewarned it is not 37 1/4" this did not matter to me because I was doing an outside mount anyway. If your window is 37" inside then this blind will be perfect for you. I found it difficult to find blinds that were affordable that had the extra length of 72"; most blinds length is 64". I have installed 100's of blinds myself but this blind had me asking for a second pair of hands from time to time. The directions were easy to follow. This blind has a nice feature for it is "light blocking" (not blackout) but you can still see out; yet,.noone can see in. I believe the beige one would let in more light. One photo shows blinding bright sun light beaming directly on the window but you can see how dark the room is. Sorry the photo turned sideways and I couldn't fix it. The other photo shows the metal top roller (most off the shelf blinds, the roller is made from cardboard). Lastly, if you need, the metal roller itself can be shorten slightly with a dremmel tool, jigsaw or even a hack saw with miterbox because the end caps easily come off. This blind is a very good deal. I certainly got more than I paid for. I will be purchasing more.

Nice quality canvas
Bought this on clearance at an amazing price. High quality soft canvas. Sturdy construction. The plastic pull cord could be of better quality. Perfect for New Mexico weather.

Works really well
This is nice. Much better quality than I expected. I was a little worried that all of the instructions were for mounting it inside and I wanted to mount it outside, but after a couple of weeks and several storms it is fine.
