When to Replace Window Treatments

Hunter Douglas EverWood Blinds

There are times when you just know you need new window treatments (like when you’ve moved into a home that doesn’t have any, for example), but other times it can be hard to determine when the time is right. At Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield, we’ve helped numerous customers decide if they need new treatments or if they can wait for a little bit. Read on to learn about some instances when the time is right for something new.

A New Look

Frequently, when people think about updating the look of a room, they don’t consider the window fashions. In some situations, that won’t be a problem. But in some cases, it might be best to consider changing your window coverings too, to add the finishing touch to a room’s look. Also, window fashions impact the way light enters a room, so if you’ve changed colors on the walls, for example, the room might look better with treatments that diffuse sunlight differently. Consider Silhouette® Window Shadings, which are a true celebration of light.

Slats Trouble

Direct sunlight or high humidity, after a while, can make genuine wood shutters or blinds warp, fade, crack, peel, yellow, or chip. To replace them, consider an alternative wood product like Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds, which resist bowing, warping, fading, and more. If your aluminum blinds slats are bent or broken, they can pose lifting and lowering challenges, and they’ll look unsightly in the room as well as from outside. Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds are sturdy, so they’re a good choice for high-traffic areas and rooms that kids and pets frequent.

Cord Damage

As a treatment ages or if something is wrong with the internal mechanism, cord fraying and breakage can occur. In this case, replacement is a must. Think about cordless operating systems for your replacement. You could get the LiteRise® system, for example, which raises and lowers with the touch of a hand. This is an especially great option if you have children or pets, because going cordless increases their safety from choking hazards.
