I have a very very large window in my living room. It's street level so I have to cover it. I have had blinds, drapes and, right now I have these http://all-blinds.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/bamboo-blinds1-213x300.jpg. The issue is I kind of hate them all. I have cats that have broken every set of blinds I have ever had and drapes they climb. Plus there's there's the issue of hair and dust and having to wash them etc..
