Blinds: Key Things to Consider

Are you ready to replace blinds? Need new for a remodel project or new home? Here are some important tips to consider before you shop:

Light and Privacy: Take some time to think about each window and the amout of light you want to come in as well as how much you want to be able to see out. Think also about how much you may or may not need: ie: bedroom vs a den- you may prefer privacy in both, but usually the bedroom “needs” less light.  Which way does your window face and will you get morning or evening sun? This will tell you most about when your blinds will be closed or open.

Cleaning: Most blind manufacturers make blind cleaning fairly easy now days. However, there are some styles that indeed are easier than others. Blinds have always been magnets for dust- there is no such thing as a “dustless” blind. Usually a rag and light water is what is preferred. Be sure to ask a sales professional about what syles collect dust more than others.

Style of Home/Room:  Is your room/home casual? Formal? Color and pattern is a definate trend today…. does your room or home allow for either of these?

Budget: Are you looking for one room? One window? Whole house? If doing more than one room, which room will you spend the most time in or entertain in? Most manufacturers have a good, better, best story. Remember, not all blinds have to be the same. Switch them up- this will allow you to save some money in areas and splurge in others if desired.

Protect Your Bed

   Its not too late to protect your mattress! We suggest that every bed in your home has a mattress protector, especially when buying new. Mattress protectors free your bed from spills, stains, soils, dust mites, bacteria and so on. They are not noisy or made of rubber. They are to replace your standard cotton mattress pad (cotton is breathable but doesnt free you from anything else!). Over the lifetime of a mattress, it is said that without a protector, it WILL gain weight. Our bodies naturally shed moisture and without a protector on your mattress, your mattress will be that heavy one!

  Again, its not too late to protect your mattress…. as always, better late than never~!

Best yet, it is available in so many different colors and textures. This week is the last week to take advantage of 50% off select tigressa carpets. Now truly is the time to take advantage of what could be huge savings for you!
