Window Blinds

We have these day night blinds in our alpine and really don't like them. Seems like always having problems with the strings breaking. We want to get something easy to put up and don't need the day and night thing. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Window Blinds

Cellular shades might be a good option. I put one on the entrance door .

We got rid of the strings - I measured and installed MCD night shades - Love them - I also did not need the day/night option. Easy up and down or anyplace in between. and easy to install

I installed the MCD day/night shades. I use the day shades a lot to cut glare. I never liked to use the day portion of the original shades, as you could not see out. Not the case with MDC. With MCD day shade you can see out.

I ordered them many years ago now. I got them directly from MCD, and used their measurement forms, and emailed them. Then got a phone call back to actually place the order, if I remember correctly.

I didn't buy the windshield blinds, just the living area and bedroom windows.
