  • My parents have them and they were expensive. They darken the room a little. I don't like them because they are dust collectors.

  • We have one window with 2" wooden blinds. The window is 70" wide and about 50 " long. The blinds are heavy, but we do not raise them often. We do rotate them to let in the light each day. Obviously, if they were not so wide they would not be so heavy. I LOVE them. They look fantastic and are so much more attractive than the small width, vinyl, blinds I have in the bedrooms. They darken the room just fine. GL

  • I have white wodden 2" blinds and love them. I do not think they keep anymore light out then other blinds! But they are kind of pricy!
