Home improvements can be exciting, but they can become a point of stress the moment you realize you haven’t set aside enough funds to complete them. The inevitable questions about finishing the project versus waiting until later, compromising on materials or quality, and doing it yourself instead of paying a professional to do it can sap the enjoyment out of a happy time. Fortunately, this does not need to be the case.
Even the sturdiest, most faithful blinds eventually give up the ghost. Older and well-loved blinds are destined to fail after years or even decades of service. While you get to enjoy choosing new blinds and an updated aesthetic for your home, the transition to fresh blinds does leave you with the question of what to do with your old ones.
A lot of jargon gets thrown around in the process of shopping for window treatments, and it’s easy for all those terms to get jumbled in your mind. Curtains, draperies, shades, shutters, valances, blinds… It’s enough to make a homeowner want to close their blinds (shades?) and hide.
When selling your home, you want to maximize the chances of a quick and stress-free sale. This means showing prospective buyers a high home value for the money and a home they can see themselves living in.
