Fabric Valances, Cellular Shades, Sliding Glass Door

JOB OF THE WEEK: November 9, 2017

See your home in a new light!

New patterned fabric valances and cellular shades in a Spring Lake, NJ home.

In these before & after photos, we show how simply updating a fabric valance and adding new cellular shades can make a world of difference. Of particular note is the verticle option on the sliding glass door in the kitchen. People often ask what kind of window treatment is best for a sliding glass door, and while that can always vary from home to home, the VertiGlide cellular option shown here is a very nice choice!

Motorized Honeycomb Shades in a Sun Room

JOB OF THE WEEK: September 28, 2017

See your home in a new light!

For this Jersey Shore home, motorized honeycomb shades in the sun room was just the ticket to convenice and style!

Honeycomb shades (also known as cellular shades) are a great help in keeping rooms cool in warmer weather and warm during colder months due to the way the cells of the shades help control how air is circulated in the room. Motorization (or automation, as it is sometimes called) allows for easily raising and lowering window treatments with minimal fuss and with great style. So, it's a great pairing in all respects, including privacy and light-control!

And, this is a fine example of how motorization - which is often associated with luxury, but which in reality is becoming more affordable all the time - isn't only for "fancier" rooms or homes...it's an asset in any room!

Plantation Shutters and a Vertical Cellular Shade on a Sliding Glass Door

JOB OF THE WEEK: September 14, 2017

See your home in a new light!

For this home in Brielle NJ, we've got plantation shutters in a living room and two bedrooms, and vertical cellular shades on a sliding glass door in a kitchen dining room.

The plantation shutters feature a hidden tilt bar (also known as "Invisitilt"), which means that there is no wand for opening and closing the louvers, giving you better see-through visibility when the louvers are in the open position. These shutters also have a "split tilt," which allows the top half and the bottom half of the shutters to be opened or closed independently of each other, giving you more privacy and light control options.

The kitchen dining room has a sliding glass door which is covered with a sliding vertical cellular shade, allowing great privacy and light control in a stylish and functional manner.

Motorized Cellular Shades on Skylight

JOB OF THE WEEK: August 31, 2017

See your home (or office) in a new light!

Skylights. They look great in nearly any environment. But things can get awfully hot beneath them from all that sunlight. 

That was the case in an office building in Manasquan, making conditions uncomfortable for employees. This skylight was up two floors, beaming down onto the foyer and the receptionist. We outfitted it with a Motorized Skylift Cellular Shade to make it easy to open and close, and also to take advantage of cellular shades' great light control and insulation capabilities, making for happier employees and great savings on utility bills!

40% Off Sale on Cellular and Roller Shades through July 8, 2017!

Independence Week 40% off Sale!

Call (732) 223-6662 TODAY!

Through July 8, 2017 we're offering 40% off Comfortex Cellular Shades (also known as Honeycomb Shades) and Roller Shades! As always, we custom measure & install everything we sell, so you're assured of not only a great deal but also a perfect fit for your home!

First let's talk about cellular shades, then we'll discuss roller shades. Toward the end we'll see how these are both great choices not only for any window, but also for French doors and sliding glass doors.

What are Cellular Shades?

Cellular Shades are a soft window treatment generally made of a cloth-like material, available in many colors. The material is woven into cells that resemble honeycombs (hence the name), and the effect of this is not only a great-looking window shade, but one that can actually help with your utility bills as these cells trap air and can act as a barrier between your window and your room, providing some relief from unwanted temperature circulation.

A cordless option is the most popular choice for cellular shades, and they are even available in top-down, bottom-up models which allow you to open the shade from either the top or the bottom, giving you great choices for light-control and privacy!

What are Roller Shades?

Roller Shades are one of your best choices for a clean, streamlined look for your windows. Simple yet elegant, they look great alone or when paired with another window treatment such as curtains. Roller shades come in varying degrees of opacity and colors, and are great for reducing glare and protecting your furniture from harmful UV rays, as well as keeping the sun and heat to a minimum.

These modern & stylish window shades are available in cordless options, and are spectatcular when automated with a motorized window treatment system as seen in the video at the bottom of this article.

French Doors and Sliding Glass Doors

Cellular shades for French doors, and roller shades for sliding glass doors are very popular options. Of course, either type of shade works well on either type of door, so neither of these great window coverings should be limited to only windows! 

Below are a few examples of these shades on both French and sliding glass doors.

Motorized Roller Shades

Below is a video of automated roller shades in a home by the beach. Notice how they still preserve the great view while cutting down on the glare and heat in the room. A very fine choice indeed!

At ASAP Blinds, we offer a wide selection of window shades from some of the most respected brands in the business, and we custom measure & install on each window for the perfect fit and look. With our current 40% off sale on Comfortex roller and cellular shades running through July 8, 2017, there's no better time to get these versatile and stylish shades in your home.

Automated Cellular Shades - Motorized Window Shades

Automated window shades for the home are becoming increasingly popular. With the advent of "smart home" technology, it's no surprise that power window treatments would be one of the most in-demand items for making homes more efficient and luxurious. Motorized Cellular Shades are a popular choice that work well in any room of your home.


What Are Cellular Shades?

Cellular shades (also known as honeycomb shades) are a window covering named for their defining characteristic: the cells which resemble honeycombs. These cells are able to trap air and act as a buffer between the window and the room, thus helping with home heating and cooling bills. They're made of soft materials and can come in a number of different colors, as well as options for enhanced room-darkening, which is a useful add-on for certain windows and rooms. Cellulars can also be raised or lowered, allowing a full view out the window, but do not have slats or vanes which allow you to peer through the shade as you would with blinds, shutters, or soft treatments such as Silhouettes.


Cellular shades providing soft light filtering.

How Do Motorized Window Shades Work?

Motorized window shades are controlled using a remote device (or an app on your smart phone or tablet) that lets you lower and raise them automatically. It's a great convenience being able to adjust your room for privacy or light control with the tap of a button - and a true godsend for high or hard-to-reach windows! It's also very easy to set the shades to automatically raise and lower at certain times of the day, freeing you from having to make those adjustments yourself. The options are nearly limitless!

Motorized Cellular Shades 

Below is a video of a set of cellular shades that are paired with a fabric valance. Watch them in action!


Why Buy Automated Window Shades?

Besides their elegance, convenience, and distinctive design, motorized blinds and shades have many practical uses. They're great for hard-to-reach windows, and for rooms where raising and lowering all window coverings at once is preferred, such as in a bedroom or home theater. They're also child & pet-friendly, making your home safer for the little ones in your life.

ASAP Blinds is the leader and expert when it comes to designing and installing automatic window treatments in your home. We work with builders during the early stages of a home’s development to ensure the best wiring options for you, but we can also create the perfect motorized experience for you no matter the age of your house. Give us a call today at (732) 223-6662 to find out how!

Home Blinds, Woven Wood Shades

JOB OF THE WEEK: May 4, 2017

See your home in a new light!

We start in the kitchen, with two bare windows and one with a temporary shade on it, then fade into the same kitchen shot with beautiful woven wood shades on the two previously empty windows, and a custom wood blind on the other. Next, it's into the dining room with several windows covered by temporary shades that we transform with custom wood blinds!

On to the living room, which also has its windows covered with temporary shades, but not for long! Look how great they are with custom wood blinds! From there we make our way into a tiny bathroom with a cute little window above the toilet, which also looks great when you see it covered with a custom wood blind!

Up the stairwell with two large uncovered windows that also benefit from custom wood blinds. Finally, we enter a bedroom with an uncovered window and door that leads out to a deck. Voila! Custom room-darkening honeycomb shades provide the right amount of privacy and light control!

Top-Down, Bottom-Up Honeycomb Shades

JOB OF THE WEEK: April 20, 2017

See your home in a new light!

This week's home features top-down, bottom-up cellular (honeycomb) shades in a dining room, living room, and a couple of bedrooms! It's really cool the way these shades can be opened from the top or the bottom (or both), giving several options for privacy and light control. In addition, cellular shades are a great choice for controlling your energy bill as they provide great insulation in winter months, and keep your air conditioning in during the summer!

For the sliding glass door off the dining room, we went with a vertical option, which keeps with the flow of that type of doorway.
