Are You Ready To Upgrade From Blinds?10/02/2018Darik Neilson You upgrade from laminate counters to granite, from old tile to hardwood, from wallpaper to painted walls. So when is the right time to upgrade from your run of the mill blinds? There are a few ways to know that today is the time to upgrade your blinds, and a number of options for replacement window treatments in Las Vegas. Let’s learn more. 3 Signs You Should Upgrade from Blinds in Las Vegas Some signs are easier to spot than others, but all of these signs are giving you the hint to say goodbye to your blinds. Your Room Is Often Too Cold or Hot If your heater or air conditioner are running constantly but your room is still too hot or cold, look to the windows. The majority of heat loss is at the windows, and flimsy blinds aren’t very energy-efficient window treatments. Switch to a more sustainable window treatment like Polywood plantation shutters or Honeycomb shades for heat blocking and a more comfortable room.

It can be difficult to know the latest interior design trends, but if your home is behind by several years, your visitors will notice. So there are two basic options: switch to the newest trends as they occur each year, or choose a window treatment that won’t go out of style. Plantation shutters in Las Vegas homes stand the test of time, as do classic window treatments like natural wood blinds or stately draperies. Your Blinds Can Easily Break Most off-the-shelf blinds show signs of heavy use within the first year or two. Broken slats, tangled cords, yellowed slats, they make your windows look less than stellar. Upgrading to a sturdier, longer-lasting window treatment can help your windows look their best. The Best Choices for Upgrading From Blinds in Las Vegas When it does come time to say goodbye to flimsy blinds, choose from one of these window treatments, depending on your style. Replacing Blinds with Plantation Shutters Shutters are a common choice when Las Vegas homeowners upgrade from blinds. They’re timeless, they are usually more durable than other window treatments, and depending on how they’re built can reduce a large amount of energy loss. Replacing Blinds with Cellular Shades Another good blind upgrade are cellular (or honeycomb) shades. They’re made to block more heat than other shades, are a snap to use, and have a large variety of options in the way of colors, textures, materials and more. Replacing Blinds with Panel Tracks If you’re wanting to upgrade vertical blinds, then panel tracks (or panel track blinds) are a good option. They hang down from a rail like traditional vertical blinds, but move very easily and are more stylish with their large fabric panels instead of thin blind slats.
