Note: Cord tilt wands match the wood slats with the exception of Espresso and Black colors. We highly recommend choosing a cord tilt instead.

Decorative Tapes
Decorative Tapes provide additional light control with a touch of class. Instead of the standard rope lift cords, decorative tapes are fabric lift cords that come in various colors.
Routless Ladders(No Holes Privacy)
Routless ladders are designed to block additional light when the blinds are closed. Each slat does not have a rout hole for the lift cords, but instead they run on the outsides of the slats.

These are a great blind, well packed, installation is a straight forward procedure, and the quality is just fine! My favorite feature already is in knowing if we break a slat somehow, the broken one will slide right out, and the new one slide right in, and who among us has not broken one at some time? We will be replacing most all of our blinds over the next year or two, and they will come from Blinds Chalet - Chuck in Texas

Very nice blinds. My only complaint would be the magnetic valance. Fabulous idea! Way better than the previous clips. Now to the problem. They need to be adjustable. My blinds were measured for an inside mount. The only way the magnets would come close to touching the metal base is to have the bracket installed an inch out. Well, that means the blind would be sticking out an inch from the window casement. Not a good look. I solved the problem by removing the magnets and using a longer screw. It would be nice if you in included additional plastic washers and longer screws to fix this problem.
