Is it time to replace my blinds? Signs that say yes!
When old blinds begin cracking and yellowing, they can greatly reduce a room’s attractiveness. By replacing them with fresh window treatments, the room can feel truly transformed. At Athena’s Window Fashions, we offer free in-home consultations, during which we can take your budget and style into account, and then make recommendations accordingly. Once those old, ugly blinds are gone, you’ll love the feel of your refreshed ambience.
How to Tell When to Replace Your Blinds
As blinds become discolored, it’s time to start thinking about replacing them. When blinds develop a yellowish hue, they can make the entire room feel drab and outdated. Also, if slats are bent, cracked or otherwise damaged, then you have a significant eyesore that can drag down the room’s aesthetic appeal. Oftentimes, kids and dogs will bend slats to peek out the window. If this is the case in your home, you may want to choose a different type of window treatment as a replacement.
Old blinds also have a tendency to develop functional problems. It’s common for the tilt mechanism to wear out to the point that your wand no longer tilts your blinds. In such a scenario, you could look into replacing the mechanism, but doing so would likely require the whole unit to be re-corded. With this being the case, when your wand no longer tilts your blinds, it’s a good time to consider investing in new window treatments. Another common functional problem in old blinds is that the raising/lowering mechanisms wear down, causing serious operational problems. When you install new window treatments, it’ll be easy to lift/lower them, especially if you choose an option such as Hunter Douglas PowerView Shades, which can be operated via remote control.
Another reason to consider replacing your blinds is that you’ve had a child and want to eliminate the choking hazard that is posed by the cord systems on some blinds. During a consultation, we can discuss window treatment options that are safe for children.
