Good Questions: Good Shade Shop in NYC?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I am looking for a shop in NYC that will install blackout shades in our bedroom. There was a time when we would have done this ourselves but that time has passed (we have twins and very little time), so the online solutions like Smith and Noble won’t work. I need someone good I can call who will come, measure, bring samples and then come back and install something nice. It doesn’t need to be super fancy. We just need to block out the multitude of headlights on 3rd avenue underneath our window. Any recommendations??

Thanks, Gluca

Dear Gluca,

You have come to the right place. Although we don’t have a lot of suggestions, we do have two. We would like more.

Blinds and Beyond does a nice, full service job
Manhattan Shade and Glass is uptown, but they do shades as well as glasswork

Also Janovic Plaza does this service, but we’ve never used them yet….

Anyone else???
