There are many ways that homeowners can choose to update their home. Unfortunately, often many of them are time consuming and costly to the home owner. In fact, when many people set out to make changes to their residence, they ultimately end up taking out a home equity loan in order to be able to accomplish the changes that they feel they need to make in order to keep their home value on the rise. One way that people can completely update and change the look of their home that is both cost effective and much quicker to do is to update their window treatments. It sounds too easy, but adding custom blinds, shades or drapes to the windows in a home can actually completely change the look of that room. It can also make your home more appealing and increase the value of it.
Many homes that have standard blinds likely have the regular white vertical blinds, but instead of keeping the monotone while throughout every window in a home, even making a simple change such as updating to a wood slat blind or changing to a color that complements the color of the furniture in the room can make a huge difference. And it does not have to cost thousands of dollars to do so! Hunter Douglas manufacturers custom blinds and shades for every budget.
Blinds tend to be the most common window treatment option seen in most homes, but if you are looking for a look that stands out while making you look like a decorating genius to your friends and neighbors, consider updating to shades instead, or perhaps even shutters. If you are looking for an ultra sleek modern look, take a look at the various mechanical styles that they offer that allow you to raise and lower your shades right from your computer or app. If you are a parent with little children and safety is your top concern, consider instead taking a look at the blinds and shades that do not come with rear or exposed cords which will eliminate any possible choking hazards.
For people with pets, shades are also a great option. They often give the same feeling to a room that curtains would provide, but without the hassle of keeping them clean – and since they do not hang down to the floor they will not attract pet hair the same way curtains do. Speaking of cleaning: if you do not want to spend one day every month deep cleaning your window coverings, many newer blinds and shades are made out of easy to clean vinyl or wood or synthetic wood materials that stay dust free longer and are much easier to remove dirt.
There are a great many benefits to update a home, but they do not have to cost you your financial freedom.
