At Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area, customers often ask us how they’ll know when it’s time to replace their window fashions. The answer is that it’s different for everyone and each situation. Some people might want to ditch what a previous homeowner used; others might be looking to improve the energy efficiency of their home. If you’re wondering if now is your time to replace your window treatments, speak with one of our trained consultants.
We’ll be happy to help you navigate your choices and determine if you need new treatments.
Ask Yourself Some Questions
To help determine if you need new window treatments, ask yourself if any of the following is true. If one is, it might be time for a change:
- The treatment’s slats are broken or discolored or the fabric is faded
- Your blinds don’t open or close properly
- You can’t reach your shades to raise or lower them easily
- Dangling cords present a dangerous problem
Broken Slats or Faded Shades
Window fashions from years ago weren’t well protected from harmful UV rays—older treatments might now be showing damage such as cracking, warping, fading, and yellowing. However, updated models offer great UV protection that reduces that kind of damage. For example, Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters and Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds are guaranteed not to warp or yellow. Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades are made from a polyester fabric with a white backing facing the outside to eliminate fading.
Problem Opening or Closing Your Blinds or Shades
Sometimes, when older blinds or shades begin not to operate properly, you can have them repaired. Sometimes, that they still don’t work. At that point, it’s probably time for new window treatments. Hunter Douglas Window Fashions offer the most comprehensive collection of blinds, shades, and shutters available today. Plus, there’s sure to be an option that will meet anyone’s budget requirements!
Hard-to-Reach Windows and Safety
Corded window treatments present a choking hazard for small children and pets. If you have corded window treatments, you might consider replacing them with a cordless option such as the Hunter Douglas LiteRise™ operating system. Or go with PowerView® Motorization, which is also great for hard-to-reach windows; it offers convenience and security.
