A well-made set of blinds can remain stylish and functional for years, but even the best sets eventually need to be replaced. Sadly, even our blinds aren’t immune to the universal laws of entropy – but we’ll let you know if we ever manage develop blinds that are!
In the meantime, you may be wondering if it’s time to replace your old blinds with a beautiful new set. To help you decide if the time is right to purchase fresh blinds, we’ve developed a list of signs that your current set may need to be replaced. Look for these signs of ageing in your current blinds to see when it’s time to replace them.
1. Your current blinds are hard to keep clean
Blinds are generally very easy to clean. However, dust and dirt can become ingrained in any object over a prolonged period of time. Consequently, the older your blinds get, the harder it will be to keep them spotless. If you’re finding it difficult to clean your current set of blinds effectively, it may be because of their age. If this is the case, it may be the right time to invest in a brand new set.
2. The slats are stiff and hard to adjust
If you have Venetian blinds or vertical blinds, their slats should move smoothly and be easy to reposition. If the slats of your blinds are hard to adjust, it may be because they have become stiff as the result of age and wear-and-tear. If this is the case, there’s no reason to simply put up with it: you can choose to invest in a new, affordable set with slats that can still be repositioned with ease.
3. Your tastes have changed
Even if your current blinds are still technically serviceable, they may no longer be to your taste. It’s natural for your tastes to evolve as time goes by and there’s no need to hold onto old blinds if they no longer match your aesthetic preferences. The blinds themselves may not be showing their age, but if you no longer like them, you should still replace them with a new set that does match your current tastes.
