NYC Window Blinds: photos, comments, advise.
Here is a picture of a the window treatments recently done at a loft apartment on 24th street, between 5th & 6th Avenue. There are actually two separate roller shades on a single bracket in each window: one see-thru solar shades & one room darkening black-out shades. In front of the window frames containing the double roller shades are full length drapes attach to a curtain rod mounted on the concrete ceiling. More pics of NYC window treatments to come soon.

Thanks. I think this thread will be of interest to those interested not only in seeing window covering ideas: but also will enjoy an 'inside' look at NY real estate.
I will be posting again to this thread: so please do check in again.

I'd like to second my enjoyment of this thread. Also, if you're willing to do work upstate (WAY upstate) PM me. We should talk.

Glad to hear that enjoy this thread Roldan. BTW, an odd coincidence - I will be traveling to Colorado this winter for a one week installer training course at the 'Hunter Douglas' headquarters. Maybe we can get together for an afternoon of Sking the Colorado mountain tops....LOL

The comeback curtain: it is i’s now modern and ‘sheer’ function. This article in the WSJ has some interesting video clips in addition to the article text.
Ms. Crabill wanted a sheer layer of drapes overlaying roller shades in a pearl color; she wanted blackout shades for maximum light-control at night. When the shades are up, the drapes filter the daylight softly and billow pleasantly if the windows are open. They look like "a flowy, sexy dress that always makes a woman look amazing," Ms. Crabill says.
Many sheer window treatments incorporate a high-tech layer of protection from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, which can penetrate regular window glass and damage skin, discolor fabrics and overheat rooms.

Making a decision about what type of window blind to choose for your home can be daunting; deciding style, color, material, function, source, cost, installation all require careful consideration.
This is a good place to ask advise on those questions: someone, if not myself, will likely have answers to any questions you may have on the subject. There have been about one thousand visits to this thread in only the last few weeks: I am sure someone has had questions on the subject - particularly NYC apartment window coverings
Here is a unique "hells kitchen" window treatment solution using automated roller shades -
Here is an 'upper east side' solar shade solution -
