Update and upgrade your shades

After a number of years, like most things in our home our blinds or drapes start o get pretty old and decrepit and no longer do their job as well as they should. You might not often think about it but actually the drapes and blinds in our homes do a lot to help make our home nice, not only by giving a nice look and feel to the place but also to keep the sun out when you are trying to watch a movie or give you a little bit of privacy if your window is easily noticeable from the street or keep in some of the heating during the long winter nights. Once your window treatments start to come apart a little bit, they are not going to be doing their job as well as they should be and you are not going to be getting everything that you can from your window treatments.
