An easy and economical way to add style and function to a room. Roller Shade are extremely customizable, and work well with numerous types of windows.

They are available in both light filtering and blackout materials, and the window is almost fully exposed when retracted, providing maximum light. Choose from various fabrics or patterns for a personal window treatment that's all your own. Larger windows work best with a lighter fabric.

For additional convenience, these shades can be motorized. But  they can easily roll up and down manually with the loop control system. The bottom of the shade is also weighted, to prevent telescoping. Roller shades are easy to clean and to maintain.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS   Ask Tom  
   
Q:  
I am moving to an apartment in Park Slope.

Below, I have included the floor plan and some pictures of a similar model unit to the one I will be moving into on Saturday afternoon, although I wouldn't necessarily do the same treatment, and would like your recommendation. It's for the 3 living room windows, the bedroom window and the office window. I'm not looking to spend a fortune but would like some reasonably priced solution.

The bedroom and office have a rear view facing another building so I'd probably want "blackout" type shades there, whereas the living room faces the street and gets a lot of light which I would want to accentuate. The bathroom window is frosted and probably doesn't need anything, unless you recommend otherwise.

 

Would love to hear your recommendation.

A:  

Keeping in mind that you are on a budget I would recommend blackout roller shades for the bedroom and solar shades for the living room. These products will give you the necessary protection from the sun and darkness in the bedroom.

If you did wish to raise the bar a bit you could go with cellular shades for the bedroom which would block almost all the light. And Hunter Douglas Silhouette Shades would work very well in the living room windows. They would provide enough sun protection but also achieve privacy.

Here are the links to Solar Shades, Cellular Shades and Silhouette Shades.

Q:   My roommate and I have a loft in downtown brooklyn and there are many windows at odd sizes. Is it possible to have an estimate done? Someone gave me a coupon of some sort and told me they used you before.
