Are You Ready To Upgrade From Blinds?

October 02, 2018

You upgrade your home from laminate counters to granite, from linoleum to bamboo flooring, from bare walls to wainscoting. So when is the right time to upgrade from your blinds?

There are a few ways to know that today is the time to upgrade your blinds, and even more options for replacement window treatments in Denver. Let’s learn more.

3 Signs You Should Upgrade from Blinds in Denver

Some are more easy to notice than others, but each of these signs are giving you the hint to move on from your blinds.

Your Room Is Frequently Too Hot or Cold

If your thermostat is running most of the time but your room is still too hot or cold, look to your windows. The majority of heat loss happens at the windows, and blinds are some of the least energy-efficient window treatments. Switch to a more sustainable window treatment like Polywood plantation shutters or Honeycomb shades for superior heat blocking and a more comfortable room.

Your Home Style Remains in the Past

Do your windows resemble your parent’s house? It can be hard to incorporate the latest style trends, but if you’re lagging behind by ten years or more, it’s hard for guests to not notice. So consider two basic options: update to the newest trends as they happen each year, or choose a window treatment that’s timeless. Plantation shutters in Denver homes stand the test of time, as do neutral window treatments like natural wood blinds or full draperies.

Your Blinds Aren’t Built to Last

Most miniature blinds don’t look new within the first year or two. Bent slats, shortened cords, faded colors, they detract from your windows. Switching to a sturdier, longer-lasting window treatment can keep your windows looking great.

The Best Choices for Upgrading From Blinds in Denver

Polywood Shutters in Narrow WindowWhen you’re ready to say so long to mini blinds, think about one of these window treatments, depending on your home’s style.

Replacing Blinds with Plantation ShuttersShutters are a common choice when Denver homeowners decide to upgrade from blinds. They’re timeless, they are usually sturdier than other window treatments, and depending on how they’re built can help block a lot of energy loss. 

Replacing Blinds with Cellular Shades

Another good blind upgrade are cellular (or honeycomb) shades. They’re made to trap more heat than other shades, are a snap to use, and offer a ton of options for colors, textures, materials and more. 

Replacing Blinds with Panel Tracks

 

If you’re trying to replace vertical blinds, then panel tracks (or panel track blinds) are a good option. They suspend from a rail like traditional vertical blinds, but move much more easily and are more stylish since they have wide fabric panels instead of thin blind slats.
