The honeycomb blinds are fantastic! The horizontal one took about 10 minutes to install. The vertical took about an hour and a half as I was taking my time to make sure I did everything right. I reckon it would take 45 minutes now that I have done it once. The blinds look good and are well finished - they were very well packed, and so arrived in perfect shape. Not sure how much they will insulate against heat and cold, but they have made our room noticeably quieter. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase more if I need them.
