As much as we’d like to purchase everything once, there does come a point in time when you have to start replacing items in your home that you may have installed years ago. When it comes to your window blinds, regardless of which type of window covering you chose years ago, you may want to start looking into brand new replacements.
Knowing that nothing lasts forever and keeping your home décor choices in mind, it may be time to replace your window blinds in the following instances:
1. Your Décor Has Changed Drastically.
What may have been in style many years simply don’t work presently, which is where brand new window blinds come in handy. With a wide variety to choose from, you’re bound to find the exact window covering to match your décor style and overall needs – without having to break the bank. Remember, your window blinds simply act as another element to your home décor.
2. They’re Difficult To Raise.
It could be that the lifting mechanism is about to break or it has already seen the end of its lifecycle. Alternatively, it could be that your window blinds were made too broad to be able to lift comfortably in the first place. Whatever the reason, you need to be able to open and close your window blinds. If that’s not possible, it could be a sign that it’s time for new window blinds.
3. Slats Have Discolored.
Due to sun exposure and damage, your window blind slats may have become discolored and damaged. Although they still work just fine, they most likely look pretty awful. Having window blinds that work well is perfect, but if too ashamed to close them due to the discoloration, why not search for new window coverings that can be closed?
4. Your Family Has Grown.
Having small children and pets in the home means that you may have to take special precautions to keep them safe. If your window blinds have cords, it could pose a real choking hazard. With motorised window blinds, you never have to worry about cords dangling or window blinds getting dirty due to excessive touching. Rather safe than sorry, right?
5.The Slats Have Become Warped.
Faux wood window blinds can become warped due to sun damage and real wooden window blinds can become damaged due to humidity or water. There’s nothing more unsightly than warped slats, which is when it’s the perfect time to replace the old with the brand new. Besides, if they’ve become warped it’s a pretty good indication that you’ve thoroughly enjoyed them for many years. In with the new, out with the old!
