these guys are just like others here described....good old fashioned small business...you wont get the big business attitude...the big business "policies and procedures"...the big business super trained customer service..you get real human service..it might be a bit rough around the edges, but you know it's honest and well meaning.

the results were great...you just have to stay close to the whole process and make sure you are getting what you want....I had oversized windows which meant most fabrics required seaming which I did not want...but Mel gave me my options...put up with my endless questions..and in the end I had what I wanted...home installation had to be supervised, and a couple mistakes were made...but as soon as I pointed them out they were fast to fix.

if you dont know what you want, and if you plan on having them do everything, go find an interior designer to do it for you who will charge you an arm and a leg but will give you what you want...if you know what you want or you are at least willing to do your homework and work closely with these guys, I would recommend them without hesitation...I would run away from any of the big business chains...they dont know what they are talking about, they are often amateurs, and they have attitudes like they are the maitre-d's at some 28 rated Zagat's restaurant.

We had a large blind installed by this company that needed an adjustment. They told me they had nobody available to do this for a month! And then there would be a $129 fee!
The person you get when you call is condescending and snarky. I do not recommend this company.

I've been going through apartment renovation woes for over two months, and when it came time to find someone to do my window coverings, I had pretty low expectations & low confidence (because of all the crappy dealings with my other contractors, who had come so highly recommended). So when I read the reviews for Manhattan Blinds, I was very skeptical... didn't think it was at all possible to love my blinds.

BUT IT TOTALLY IS.

I LOVE MY BLINDS.

Seriously, my blinds are the only good thing that has happened to me in the past two months. Peter (the owner) came to measure the windows and was very professional and friendly. The price was extremely reasonable, and he said he could have the blinds installed in the next two weeks. He was very helpful and not pushy at all when it came to deciding what fabrics to use, and didn't push us to pick the more expensive fabric.

Then, two weeks later, George came to install the blinds, and did it very professionally and efficiently. There was a minor measurement error with one of the windows, so George came again the next day to fix it.

I'm staring at my blinds now and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM. They look so professional and classy and I can't imagine being any happier with the result.

Thank you so much, Manhattan Blinds, for giving me such awesome blinds.

Go with Manhattan Blinds!!

Everyone was soooooooo nice! I bought motorized blinds for my one bedroom apt. 2 windows and 1 sliding door. I called for an estimate and they came that same day. I said I needed blackout motorized blinds. He measured everything and gave me a quote and I paid half down. I needed them asap and they worked with me. All I can say is I LOVE my new blinds and I love Manhattan Blinds....Thank you!

Since buying a new condo in the city, I have had the good fortune (and unfortune) of working with several people to mke my condo look and feel the way I envision. While you want to pull your hair out dealing with most, Manhattan Blinds has been an absolute pleasure. Helpful on the phone, reliable with call backs, prompt on delivery and beautiful product, I would most recommend them to anyone without hesitation. I really wouldn"t look any further!!

Used this company based on word of mouth. Visited them, the office manager was fabulous - knowledgeable, reliable and honest. Owner visited my apartment, measured up my windows and then provided options and pricing. He provided his opinion and was not pushy. I felt like I had known him for many years....a great person to interact with for this job. Installation was quick and easy.

LOVING our blinds. Would highly recommend them for any job large or small. They can handle any job. They price very well also. Lastly, they have done many celebrity homes (have obviously dealt with hard clients and have great taste) and therefore have a high sense of what you require, what are lasting materials, and how to treat clients for future business.

I will use them again and again.

I bought blinds online thinking that would be more cost effective. Needed to cover 7 windows in coop apartment. The results were bad quality, big headaches, hard to install. A neighbor recommended Peter at Manhattan Blinds. I called and he was nice, helpful, not pushy at all. Gave me some options that made sense and were very nice and within my budget. Real honest family business and the prices were comparable to the deal I thought I was getting online. The quality was really top notch. And Peter, who turns out is the owner, came and handled my job. It's the kind of place you find and then recommend to others.

Let me start by saying this company has hands down the best customer service I have ever dealt with. They are organized, efficient, friendly and good at what they do. The owner is great at assisting you with what product you need. He's polite, great at installing and great at explaining everything.

We had moved into a spatial condo on the first floor and have a huge window that needed to be covered. Our windows are huge. I had a few people from other companies come by to suggest prices. I even took pictures before and sent them to two different companies. Both of them showed up late and unprepared, in fact baffled on how to cover that window....but not the guys at Manhattan Blinds & Window Coverings!

They came out and showed us some options and in less than an hour they promised and told us that it would be exactly the shade we were looking for. The price was very reasonable. The wait was minimal to get the product in and then the owner came by himself and installed it!

Installation took hardly no time at all. Other companies said they would have to charge $125 for some large ladder or scaffold (???) but it took only one person to do it with a little ladder. The blinds look great and the service was awesome!

This company went above and beyond my expectations and did whatever they could do to ensure that we were happy with the service and the product. The shade is great, nice and private. We are very happy with everything!

Overall, I highly suggest them to anyone who is looking to get blinds or shades for their space.

This is a very good company to work with. The owner was professional, knowledgeable about the different products he offered and was able to provide practical suggestions as to what would be best given our situation.

When it came time for installation, the work was carried out quickly - yet everything looked good and functioned properly. The work was very clean and when he was bringing in the blinds he was cautious and mindful not to hit any walls or any other furniture. We had "temporary" shades up and he took them all down and disposed of them along with the packing material that the new blinds came in.

There was an ease about working with everyone and the prices were very reasonable. I would definitely utilize their services again and highly recommend these guys to anyone looking for window treatments.

It took years of frustration for me to have these people resolve a problem I had with my automated blinds. That doesn't take into account the numerous phone calls I had to make.

I used to have motorized blinds that were operated with a remote. Well, about half a year after they were installed, one of them no longer worked. After calling for about two months, they sent someone to come take a look. They claimed it was a battery that had to be replaced, and the technician didn't have any, so it would have to be ordered.

Month after month they couldn't obtain this battery. Then six months later they finally got it in. Technician arrives three weeks later, installs the battery. By this time, one of the other four blinds has partially stopped working as well, where it will only go up half the height and intermittently get stuck the rest of the way up or down. The technician moves a dresser by the window by dragging the whole weight of it across my hardwood floor, putting a foot-long gouge in it. He replaces the battery on the first blind. Still doesn't work. Now they claim it's the fuse that has to be replaced. Mind you, this is now a year later, and two blinds are no longer functional. The sales guy back at the office tells me not to worry about the floor, they'll bring along wood filler and a colored wax pencil to hide the damage the next time they come.

Half a year later, they tell me the motorized units operating the blinds are discontinued by the manufacturer. They are still looking for units elsewhere. I'm so fed up by this point, I ask them to come and just remove the motorized units, and replace them with manually operated blinds.

They come, take the motorized units and batteries, and I get stuck with a hefty bill for the blinds removal. After years of hassle dealing with them, there was never even an iota of apology, and they basically charged me for having faulty motorized units and a remote which they then took back and charged me additionally for swapping out for manual blinds.

Completing a rip-off -- the only reason I feel I got my money's worth is because I no longer have to deal with their incompetence. And no, they never did do anything about the floor damage.
