When to Replace Window Treatments
At Blinds & Designs serving San Francisco and Marin county, we’re proud to help all of our customers find the right window treatments to meet their style and budgetary needs. However, when our customers want to replace their window treatments, we want them to be sure they really need to. That’s why we’ll get to know each client and their situation, which helps us give the best advice possible.
Things to Consider
At Blinds & Designs, our trained consultants know the right questions ask to determine if it is time to replace your window treatments or merely repair and clean them. For example:
- Does your treatment raise and lower properly?
- Are the treatment’s slats broken or discolored or is the fabric faded?
- Do you have dangling cords?
- Is the product easy to reach?
- Do you still have the same décor and look and feel in your home?
Treatments That Don’t Open or Close Correctly
Over time, it is many products lose the ability to operate correctly. Sometimes, the issue can be repaired. However, if it can’t, it might be time for a new, functioning treatment. We recommend Hunter Douglas, the leader in the window fashions industry. They offer the most comprehensive collection of blinds, shades, and shutters available today.
Problems With Slats or Fading
UV rays can damage window treatments—and older products are particularly susceptible to cracking, warping, fading, and yellowing. However, more modern products come with UV protection, which reduces the impacts of the harmful UV rays. For example, Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters and Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds are guaranteed not to warp or yellow.
Accessibility and Safety
Homes with children and pets shouldn’t have dangling cords, which present a choking hazard. Newer window treatments come with newer, cordless options, such as the Hunter Douglas LiteRise™ operating system or PowerView® Motorization, which lets you access hard-to-reach windows.
Updating Your Look
Sometimes, it’s time for new window fashions when you’ve outgrown a look or style you used to have. Our specialists can help you decide which products will fit your new décor as well as your lifestyle and budget.
