    Can any NYC HTFers recommend a good company for purchasing/installing window shades? I need some for my new place, and have had a bad experience so far. I tried "Exclusive Interior Decorators inc.", which proved to be awful. They quoted me $150 per shade for what I wanted, took a $25 non-refundable deposit to come out and measure. The guy arrived 2 hours late, apparently didn't know how to use a measuring tape, and told me that the shades would actually be $350 per shade, not counting tax. Needless to say he got the boot.

    Do you have a Janovic in your neighborhood? The ones in Manhattan do all kinds of window shades, in addition to selling paint. My wife dealt with them and was generally satisfied. I can't say how competitive their prices were, though.

    Hmmm... I've seen one on Manhattan around Spring St. I'll have to see if there are any out near me, or if they would come out to do an install.

    Thanks for the tip.
