Are You Ready To Upgrade From Blinds?

October 02, 2018

You upgrade from shag carpets to berber rugs, from old tile to hardwood, from wallpaper to painted walls. So when is the right time to upgrade from your department store 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 thermostat is frequently on but your room still isn’t the right temperature, 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.

Your Home Style Is Stuck in the Past

Do your windows sometimes remind you of your parent’s house? It can be difficult to keep up with the latest home fashion trends, but if your home is behind by a decade, your visitors will notice. So you have two basic options: switch to the newest trends as they occur each year, or pick 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 streamlined draperies.

Your Blinds Can Easily Break

Most off-the-shelf blinds see signs of aging within just a year or two. Broken slats, frayed cords, faded colors, they make your windows look less than stellar. Investing in a more durable, longer-lasting window treatment can help your windows look their best.

The Best Choices for Upgrading From Blinds in Las Vegas

Polywood Shutters in Narrow WindowWhen it’s time to say so long to flimsy blinds, choose from one of these window treatments, depending on your home’s needs.

Replacing Blinds with Plantation 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 help block a large amount of energy loss. 

Replacing Blinds with Cellular Shades

Another good blind upgrade are cellular (or honeycomb) shades. They’re built 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 replace vertical blinds, then panel tracks (or panel track blinds) might be right for you. They suspend 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.
