At first, you might think buying blinds and shades is easy, but window treatment can drastically change the look of your room, so you have to be careful about which one you pick. If that didn’t make choosing window treatments hard enough, there are a lot of misconceptions and myths revolving around blinds and shades that can discourage people from buying them.
Window treatments have made plenty of advancements recently, and most problems with them in the past have been addressed in more recent models. This means that many of the myths you may hear about blinds and shades came from a time before these advancements occurred. Here are some of the myths about blinds and shades that you may hear about.
Custom Blinds are Expensive
People think that if you go with custom blinds, you have to pay a fortune. This is not the case. There are many companies that will offer you custom blinds at affordable prices. It may require some research determining which companies give you the best quality at the best price, but the research will be worth it. Don’t just go with the cheapest option, though. You want to strike a balance between price and quality.
There Aren’t Many Options for Window Coverings
There are plenty of options for window coverings these days. You have your standard choices such as blackout and privacy liners, but there are also options for blinds and shades that have top down bottom up operation and ones that can be operated without a cord. You can even get blinds and shades in a plethora of colors and textures that let you match your room perfectly.
It’s Hard to Keep Blinds and Shades Clean
Some blinds and shades have an easier time collecting dust and dirt than other varieties, but all types can be cleaned easily. If you have blinds and shades that can be damaged by harsh cleaners, spot cleaning using a mild cleaner and feather dusting are all that you’ll need to get them clean.
