5 Reasons to Upgrade Your Window Coverings

Have you been thinking about a home renovation and aren’t sure where to start? Maybe you are looking to revamp the old for the new. When it comes to interior design an upgrade can be just what your home needs.

So why not start with your windows? We all know that blinds and curtains have been around since you were young and you probably haven’t really thought that they need an upgrade until now.


Reason 1: Improved Lighting and Room Design

Whether you choose blinds for privacy, decoration, or warmth, upgrading your blinds is one of the many small changes that can significantly improve the aesthetics of your home while adding function to it as well.

You may have blinds in your home that are old, worn, and don’t open or close properly. A blind upgrade will rejuvenate the window while changing up the style at the same time. By simply combining blinds into patterns that match your decor, you can give new life to the look of your room. This is great for those of you who would like more light in the room to add to the overall aesthetic of your space.


Reason 2: Energy Efficiency

Of course, the easiest way to save money is by cutting your electricity bill. If you install blinds that are motorized they will open and close at a certain time in order to let more or less light in. This will help to keep your house cooler during the summer months and warmer throughout winter.

The amount of new innovation and technology that have come out in blinds has been outstanding in the past couple of decades. During the summertime, when the sun’s rays heat the air around the window glass, a honeycomb shade can prevent that heated air from flowing into the home through the window. It can also prevent cool air inside the home from escaping through the glass. In this way, the shade insulates hot air from flowing into the room and keeps cool air from escaping the room through the window.


Reason 3: Blinds for every Budget

Working with Blind Magic you will be able to get what you need and stay within your budget. We will work with you to make blinds that are best suited for your windows. You can discuss the type of blinds you would like to get, the fabric, style, and other details with our experienced sales consultants. We offer a variety of blinds at very reasonable rates which will surely meet your requirements without causing any dent in your budget.


Reason 4: Simple and Easy Maintenance

An often-overlooked advantage of having blinds over other types of window coverings is just how easy it is to keep them clean. You can clean blinds on your own by just wiping them with a damp cloth or you can also use an upholstery attachment for more stubborn dirt.

For most blinds, if you prefer not to take any chances with small kids and pets around, you can bring them into a blind cleaning service for professional maintenance at a low cost.


Reason 5: Versatility in looks and functionality

Finally, blinds offer a wide range of choices when it comes to both the style and functionality you want out of your blinds. Consider some of these versatile options:

Roller blinds can be either vertical or horizontal slats mounted on wheels that can be moved up and down to open or close. Roller blinds can be completely closed, affording privacy as well as blocking dust and light from entering a room. This blind option is also great for hanging over an existing window frame because the roller blind can be adjusted to cover it without any additional framing requirements.

Cellular blinds let in natural light while still protecting your privacy. Some models also have thermal properties, helping to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Wood blinds are incredibly strong, durable, and are able to withstand years of use without becoming damaged or weakened. They are incredibly long-lasting and cost-effective and offer a luxurious look.

Sheer window shades are often the go-to choices for a wide number of people with varied tastes, and there are quite a few reasons why people choose these. The vanes in a Sheer and Shading window covering can be tilted in a variety of ways to control light and privacy. They are also easy to operate and their durable construction makes them a popular choice for people who want blinds that can stand up to years of use.

Shutter blinds come in metal, vinyl, wood, or aluminum options. These blinds offer an unobstructed view of the outdoors but ensure your privacy at the same time.
