by deardeedle Great Insulating Shade
We ordered these for our son's nursery after we noticed how chilly his room was getting (even with curtains!) in our 100+ year old house. They are excellent! The shades are very good looking (we ordered cool white) and do a great job of keeping the heat in the room. And they are very easy to install, even on our crazy old window casings (we mounted them inside the casing).
They do make the room slightly darker for his naps, but they are not black out, so some light does come through (our guy doesn't nap in darkness so they work fine for us.) And they do have a cord, so for safety I've shorted them and we're using the cord anchor (that they come with) very high up on the wall.
We liked them so much, we ordered more for 3 other rooms. We got them on sale, so I would say we got an excellent deal.

by Gennielee Outstanding value!
I had been pricing Roman Shades for several months, I couldn't find anything that I liked and was considering spending the money to have something custom made when I found the shade from JCP. I was amazed at the quality of the product for the price. I'm telling all of my friends who need any window treatments to check these out!

by UpstateNewYork I highly recommend
I highly recommend these shades! I live in upstate New York and I needed a affordable thermally shade. The next morning I noticed how much warmer my room was! and they block out light! We have old frames so at first I was sure we had to return. My husband made these( see pictures) to install shades and it works perfect! If you think you need to return shades because of window frame, see if you can make these:-)

by BookishB Good luck on color if you need more than one
We ordered two of these in the rustic red for our office. Once we had hung the second and could see them side-by-side, it became apparent that they do not match. They are not the exact same shade of red, the pull cords are slightly different colors, and the thermal backing on one is much thicker or more dense than on the other (see picture). We thought it was probably a fabric anomaly and ordered a third. Amazingly, the third was a completely different hue of "rustic red" that didn't match the other two, more orangey in tone. It was also thinner like the one on the left in the picture, allowing more light to filter through.
As other reviewers have stated, these shades don't fold evenly when being raised- the fabric bunches and must be adjusted each time.
If you only need ONE shade and want something pretty inexpensive, this product might work for you. However, if you need more than one, it is highly likely the colors will not match and they are DEFINITELY not worth the money at full price. JCPenney needs to speak to the manufacturer about the inconsistencies with this product.
I do not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucilleno It is a great product for the price.
They are good looking shades.had to take first pair back. I couldn't get them I the store. When I went in a young lady was looking like she worked there. I asked how I could get them in and she said I will help you no hesitation. It was a very good experience. The second pair are fine. I will shop in Penney more often.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rocky The soft cream is a light peach, not off white
The product quality is very nice but I will be returning it because the color (soft cream) is not the same color as shown on the website. It is pastel peach/yellow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by shopper Poor quality on most important feature.
The quality of the material in the shade is fine but the hardware included is extremely flimsy and will not withstand regular use. It is unfortunate that the quality was not carried throughout the whole product. The hardware is the most important part of this product and it is very poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by robinc Classic, durable window shades add warmth.
I was very happy with my purchase of these roman shades for my son's bedroom. His room tends to be cold in the winter, so the thermal backing on these shades helps to keep in the heat. Nice, neutral color goes with everything, too.
