There a few red flags to look for when identifying window treatments in need of replacing. Several window treatment options are built to withstand such everyday complications like sun bleaching, fraying, or breakage, but many others are not. Consider these common issues that may require replacement.
Warped or bent slats in your horizontal blinds are impossible to correct, especially when the issue runs the length of the blind in question. If your horizontal blinds are displaying a great deal of bent, cracked or broken slats, it’s time to consider their replacement. Cellular shades and Roman shades are both excellent replacements not prone to sag, cracks, or breaks.
If the raising mechanisms in your blinds have officially given out, a full replacement shouldn’t be far behind. Consider cord-free treatments like roller shades or motorized blinds to avoid the same issues in the future.
Fraying textiles hanging from your windows will not heal themselves. Before these loose threads steal any more of your textiles, consult with a drapery professional who may be able to repair your drapes. Often, frays can be too problematic to repair. In these cases, replacement is the only option.
