Home improvement, in itself, is a project that doesn’t ever really seem to end. There are so many things that constantly need to be done, and even when it feels like you’re getting a grip on the list, there is that one project that lingers in the back of your head that you know you should be working on.
These are some of the signs that you might recognize when it’s time for you to finally switch out the window treatments in your home.
Warped or Bent
One of the clearest signs that it’s time to replace your blinds will be physical signs of bent or warped parts. This is primarily the case with mini blinds, but can also be a huge part of other window coverings that you install in your home. If you have any creases in your window coverings, whether they be mini blinds or any of the shades that you pull down, you should consider getting them replaced. This can make it difficult to take advantage of energy efficiency, but can also completely take away the purpose of having window coverings at all.
They Don’t Work
When you install window fashions in your home, you invest in them so that they can provide coverage and control with natural light, but also so that they can increase the efficiency of your home. If you have blinds or window coverings that aren’t doing that, then it is beyond time to switch them out. Something that all creators of window coverings work to complete, at the very least, is have a fashion that will be efficient and get the job done.
At times this could be as easy as switching them out for a new set of blinds, but it could also serve as an opportunity to see what other types of fashions are available. There may be a new style that better suits your needs or one that better suits your aesthetic preferences. Regardless, being able to see what other options are out there and how they can provide you with more coverage, more control or higher levels of efficiency is always worth looking into.
We said it at the beginning, but 7 to 8 years is the standard amount of time that people will wait before having their window coverings changed. That may seem like a solid amount of time to wait in regards to making a purchase that big, but it is enough time for there to be some pretty big changes in the interior design world. When you look at your window coverings, do they seem outdated? Do they still hold the room together and allow for there to be a unique feel and style? If your window fashions aren’t contributing anything to your room, then it is at least worth looking into other styles and designs that you can choose from and see if they can provide you with anything more.
