The temperatures across the US are dropping, making the weather ideal for doing work around your house. It’s much more enjoyable to do yard work or install a new kitchen countertop when it’s not 100 degrees outside. Thus, October and November tend to be some of the most popular times of the year for homeowners to make improvements or do maintenance around their house. One of the most popular things for many homeowners is to tear down their old window blinds and put new ones up. Take a quick second to look at your window blinds. Are they in good shape? Are they stained from years of wear-and-tear? Would your home look better if you installed new ones? If the answers to these questions lead you to believe it might be time, visit a store like United Decorators and pick out a new set.
There are three major reasons for homeowners to install new window shades or blinds in their home. Here they are:
1. Aesthetic. The first reason why it’s such a good idea to put up new window blinds every handful of years is that it greatly improves the way your home looks. Even if the rest of your home looks great and well-maintained, a broken or old set of window blinds will drag down the look of your home. Have you ever been in someone’s home that had old, musty window blinds? It doesn’t look so good, does it? The answer, of course, is that it does not. Don’t be that person. Install new window blinds every handful of years and keep your windows, and your home, looking great.
2. Value. Although you might not realize it, having new window blinds in every window of your home can actually increase the value of your property. There are lots of different things that appraisers look at when they’re trying to figure out how much a home is worth, and one component of that equation is how well the house is maintained. An old set of window blinds will drive down the value of your home because the appraiser will wonder what other parts of the home you’re not maintaining properly. On the other hand, a new set of window blinds will make them think you’re taking care of the property, and because it improves the aesthetic of the home it will enhance their impression of it. If you’re thinking about selling, it’s an absolute must that you replace every window blind in your home.
3. Confidence. This might seem a little strange, but bear with me. When you have a home that looks great, you’re much more likely to feel confident about the way it looks. When you feel confident about the way your home looks, it makes you feel better about yourself. It makes you feel better when you’re home, and it makes it much more likely that you’ll invite people over to your house. When you feel good about your home, you feel good about your life, and that’s something that everybody can get on board with.
