Should you replace your window blinds?
Homeowner are constantly faced with decisions about repairing or replacing things around the house. If you’re like most people, you don’t want to think about it until you absolutely have to. So how do you know when it’s time to replace your blinds, and how should you go about it?
Signs That You Need to Replace Your Blinds
Damage: If you’re noticing cracked, broken or buckling slats, or if your blinds have become difficult to open and close, it’s time to think about replacing them. Depending on the extent of the damage, you could get away with replacing just the slats, so find out how serious the damage really is.
Outdated style: Your blinds might still work well enough, but every time you look at them, they just don’t make you happy. If you’re looking for a way to spruce up a room, getting new blinds will do wonders.
Discolouration: Are the slats faded or discoloured? All blinds will experience some fading as they are exposed to the sun, but serious discolouration is a sign that the material is deteriorating —time to get your blinds replaced!
Safety issues: Did you get your blinds before you had kids or pets? Are they safe to operate? Do they offer you the privacy you need? Think about updating to cordless window treatments, shades that offer better view blocking, or the convenience of smart window treatments.
