For the budget-conscious, blinds are a temporary window
treatment to cover your windows. They tend
to deteriorate over time with the
strings breaking and the loops that hold the slats in
place falling apart. And they’re not
easy to clean.
Shades offer an assortment of
colors and unique patterns, transforming your window
into artwork. By simply pulling up the fabric of
the shade, your full window is exposed and you can see out
onto your New York City neighborhood.
Draperies also are available in a wide

patterns. They are a traditional alternative for a window
treatment. Installing thick panels between the drapes and
the window provides you with light and temperature
block-out capabilities. And unlike other window treatments, you won’t have to clean draperies
for five years.

treatment that lasts more than 10 years, saves you actual bucks on your energy bills, and looks
lovely on your windows,
shutters are the choice for your home. Not only are shutters durable, but
they’re also beautiful and energy efficient.
