Blackout Window Shades New York City

Blackout shades are typically made from heavy fabric such as damask or velvet since those materials are naturally heavy enough to have a light-blocking quality. Then we sew a blackout lining into it to guarantee maximum blocking and to make any room calm, and soothing. The skilled seamstresses at Alluring Window know just how to pair linings with lighter materials to give your decor the look you want, while still creating blackout shades that will truly blackout a room. It opens up your options and makes blending blackout shades in with your established decorating scheme an easy task.

Overview

Blackout shades may seem like a futuristic concept but the science behind blackout shade is quite simple. Blackout shades are not-regular shades that have a lining or back that is made of a tightly woven fabric. Natural light and UV rays are unable to penetrate the drapes, resulting in a pitch-black room that is an ideal environment to sleep in.

New York means versatility. Your business suit needs to go from grabbing coffee on the street to after-work cocktails. Do you need natural light to open up your postage-stamp-sized apartment, or a window treatment capable of blocking out the flashing lights – or both? Are you looking to boost your premise’s energy efficiency, or give it a sleek modern look – or the perfect mix of the two?

These guys are absolutely terrific. Not only did Eli show up on time to make a sale, he was actually early to do the installation. C’mon who ever heard of contractors being on time on both ends? Great customer service and I got my blinds earlier than I expected …. and they are exactly what I wanted. You will make a huge mistake and waste your time using anyone else for you window coverings. NO NEED TO COMPARISON SHOP. Eli is the one!!!

What can I say. Eli is an amazing representative. He recommended motorized roller shades and they look spectacular. My wife who is probably the most hardest pleasing woman in the world raves about these blinds. I would recommend the motorized shades to everyone. Simple easy to use. Thank s Eli

I purchased a wooden shade for my bedroom 2 1/2 weeks ago and am very pleased with it. The solid wood looks lovely next to my bookcases and contrasts well with my blue walls. The remote device for lifting and lowering the shade is convenient. Ely, my salesman and installer did a great job. He came to my apartment with large selection to show me. The delivery installation were on time and perfect. I have only nice things to say about this experience.

Empire window did an incredible job with all our window treatment! Eli from the team was incredibly helpful and patient as we had to go back and forth several times. He was creative in find solutions for an unconventional set of windows and limitations and we couldn’t be happier with the results! The prices are also unbeatable and I’m glad to say the the quality is superb. We have motorized shades in our bedroom that are so quiet, Venetian blinds for our office and beautiful linen drapes for our living room. Highly recommended!

I’ve used Eli at empire blinds twice. He is quick and efficient! Good prices, he also has a great eye for style (which I don’t). Very happy with their service and our blinds!

5 stars for Eli and Empire Window Treatment Center! Our Hunter Douglas Silhouette blinds were a disaster-a filthy mess( believe it or not we had them installed in 1997). During our apartment renovation our decorator insisted that we would have to throw them away and spend thousands of dollars on new blinds. I called Empire Window Treatment Center and Eli came over, looked at them and assurred us he could clean them and get them to look brand new. My wife and I, as well as our decorator were all a little skeptical, but sure enough, when Eli brought them back they were spotless and indeed looked brand new! As an added bonus, Eli is a really nice guy. Thanks Eli!!

Fantastic find. The service and shades itself are high in quality. The sales representative keeps his word, comes on time, delivers exactly what we needed, installs shades in no time. Price for installment is included in total price. A tiny con: When I was still shopping around and asked the company to wait for a while it was obvious, they got offended. Overall it was good experience and satisfaction with the final result.

Working with Eli was a positive experience. He had really beautiful swatches, and helped me choose solar and blackout shades. All my windows are custom size. He was patient, polite and professional. The window treatments look great, and I am considering ordering some roman shades or curtains to complete the look.
