At Windows, Walls & More serving the West Bloomfield area, we’re often asked, “When should I replace my window treatments?” Then answer actually depends on a number of factors. Maybe your window treatments aren’t operating correctly anymore or you simply want a fresh look. Or perhaps your lifestyle has changed or you are looking for a more energy-efficient window covering. Take some time to think about your window coverings situation, and feel free to speak with one of our consultants for more details and advice.

Reasons to Replace Your Window Treatments

Our trained window treatment consultants know the right questions ask to determine if it is time to replace your window treatments or merely repair and clean them. Many common complaints include blinds that won’t raise or lower, broken slats or discolored fabric, dangerous dangling cords, inaccessible windows or treatments, and an outdated look.

Problem Lifting or Lowering Blinds or Shades

When some blinds and shades get old, they begin not to operate properly. Sometimes, that issue can be repaired; however, sometimes it can’t. If it can’t be fixed, we recommend Hunter Douglas Window Fashions. They offer the most comprehensive collection blinds, shades, and shutters available today.

Broken Slats or Faded or Discolored Fabric

Older blinds and shades may start to show damage from harmful UV rays, such as cracking, warping, fading, and yellowing. Newer products have elements that protect them from that kind of damage. For example, Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters and Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds are guaranteed not to warp or yellow.

Dangling Cords

Corded window treatments present choking hazards to children and pets. Many new operating systems are cordless, which is much safer. Consider the Hunter Douglas LiteRise™ operating system or Hunter Douglas PowerView® Motorization, which lets you operate your blinds or shades remotely, even when you aren’t home. Not only convenient, motorization adds another level of security and helps you access hard-to-reach windows in the process.

Updating Your Look

Maybe a previous owner bought your window treatments or perhaps your décor tastes have changed. Let our window treatment specialists help you determine which window treatment fits not only your décor preferences but your lifestyle and budget requirements as well.
