*Please note: for many years there has been some concern about safety hazards with corded window treatments such as home blinds. Most of these issues come about from a broken equalizer on the blinds, which leads many people to simply tie the cords to maintain functionality, but in the process that creates a hazard. To help prevent this, we have a video that shows how to easily repair your blinds' equalizer yourself to help you avoid that situation.

Woven Shades, Nantuckets, Blinds & Shutters

JOB OF THE WEEK: October 19, 2017

Woven Shades, Nantuckets, Blinds & Shutters

Window treatment options are virtually limitless. In this week's JOB OF THE WEEK, we're taking a look at before & after photos of woven wood shades, Nantucket shades, wood blinds, and plantation shutters...all in the same new Avon-by-the-Sea, New Jersey home. To see individual before & after photos, be sure to check out our Facebook Photo Album for this project!


Woven Wood Shades

In the above video, check out these woven wood shades in a living room off the porch, followed by similar wovens on a French door and windows. Check out the texture of those woven weaves! Wovens are a great choice for French doors, and they offer a stylish look with great light-control and view-through...simultaneously!

Nantucket Shades

Nantucket shades are very similar to, though less expensive than, Silhouette shades. For a full breakdown of the differences, see this post. Nantuckets are also a great candidate for motorization...in fact, the shades above the bathtub in the video are automated, and you can see them in action here! These shades give a great and luxurious look to any room.

Wood Blinds

You can't go wrong with wood blinds. Classic, practical and stylish, they work in any room and always look great! In a home such as this, where various elegant window treatments are being used in many of the main rooms, wood blinds are a cost-effective way to dress up less frequently visited rooms!

Plantation Shutters

Another classic window covering, plantation shutters offer great looks, fantastic options for viewing the outside world, and extremely effective light-control. These shutters have an invisible tilt bar (known as Invisitilt) that brings less obstruction to your view and a cleaner look to your window.

ASAP Blinds in Manasquan NJ has you covered for all of your window treatment needs in Monmouth & Ocean Counties and throughout New Jersey. Call us today at 732-223-6662 and find out about our large selection of blinds, shades, shutters and other window treatment options.

Replacing Your Window Treatments

Let's face it: nothing lasts forever, even your favorite window shades. Replacing your window treatments can be a great and simple way to add some change to the decor of your home, giving you a brand new feel and look, and at a fraction of the cost of remodeling!


From Woven Woods to Roller Shades

In the photo below, you'll see something slightly different in our before & after pictures: usually we show the bare window in our before shot, but this time we're showing you the previous window coverings, which were woven wood shades, to give you an idea of the new look attained by replacing the shades.

The owners of this waterfront house in Brielle, NJ made a great choice in replacing their aging wovens with sheer roller shades, which give a much cleaner and stylish look, as well as providing better view-through out to the water. The ambient lighting is softer too, making for a whole new feel in the room!

Plus, roller shades are a great candidate for automation, so just think of the possibilities these shades coupled with motorization can add to your own home!

Woven Wood Shades for Kitchen and Home

JOB OF THE WEEK: October 5, 2017

See your home in a new light!

Woven wood shades were the natural choice for this Central New Jersey home!

Woven Wood Shades

Woven wood shades are an excellent window treatment choice and have many benefits. Besides being made from natural, eco-friendly materials, they provide great UV ray protection. Their unique textures bring personality and style to any room, and they're available with many great options including motorization and room-darkening liners. 

Wovens for the Kitchen

Have a look at the video below, or through the photos beneath that, and check out how great these woven shades look in the kitchen. It's a fun, practical look over the sink, as well as on other windows in that room.

We also show you how fine these shades look in other rooms throughout the house, such as the living room, the dining room, the family room, and a bedroom suite.

No matter the room, woven wood shades bring a great touch of personality and style in the most natural of ways!

Woven Wood Roman Shades

JOB OF THE WEEK: September 21, 2017

See your home in a new light!

For this home on the Jersey Shore, we sold and installed woven wood Roman shades with turned headrails to provide an exotic yet stylish look in the rooms .

Woven Romans bring a unique personality to any room, and the turned headrails keep the shades closer to the window for a cleaner look. Be sure to check out the close-up shots of the textures of these shades...the uniqueness of the weave gives them a fantastic look!

Woven Roman Shades on a Bay Window

JOB OF THE WEEK: July 6, 2017

See your home in a new light!

Bay windows are a great opportunity for a number of different window treatment options. At this home on the Jersey Shore, we went with woven Roman shades for a classic beachy feel. Woven shades have a nice texture (see the close-up photo further down and check out the tassel too), and bring some of that outdoor feel into your home.  And they are a great choice on bay windows stylistically, and for privacy and light control!

Cafe Shutters, Woven Woods, Motorized Nantucket Shades

JOB OF THE WEEK: May 18, 2017

See your home in a new light!

Watch as we transform rooms in this lovely traditional-style home.

We start with the dining room where cafe shutters provide privacy while maintaining a great view to the outside. Next, woven woods by a kitchen table are a fine way to keep the sun at bay when needed, and the same goes for the wovens in the kitchen overlooking a sunroom. At the top of a stairwell, cafe shutters let just the right amount of light in.

For the living room and master bedroom, we went with motorized Nantucket shades from Hunter Douglas, utilizing their PowerView technology. With these automated window shades, the shades can be set to open and close at predetermined times, as well as automatically anytime via the included remote control for a perfect combo of convenience and elegance!

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!
