Top Ways You Can Make Your Window Shades Look Nicer

Have your window shades started to not look as nice as they used to be?

Maybe they’ve started to use color, maybe a string or another piece has gotten broken, maybe they’ve become dirty, or maybe you’re just not satisfied with the look of them regardless.

The good news is that there are multiple ways you can address the problem of having less than desirable windows shades in your home, and that’s what we’re going to talk about in this article.

Here are the top ways you can easily make your window shades look nicer:

Repair Them

If your window shades are broken in any way, the simplest fix is to repair them. While you may be tempted to spend the money on replacing them entirely, most issues such as a broken string or a missing blind can be easily solved without needing an entire replacement.

If you have any home repair or window treatment stores nearby, you can always detach your shades from the window and drop them off for a quick and cheap fix. Otherwise, you can always look up tutorials online on how to fix the shades on your own.

Pair Your Shades With Another Window Covering

Who says that shades have to be the only thing covering your windows? Most shades can be easily paired with drapes or curtains.

Not only does this provide your home with a little extra privacy, it can also improve the look of your room as well if the the shades and drape/curtain complement one another and pair together well.

Pull Out The Paint

If the main issue you’re facing is your blinds have started to lose a lot of their color, this isn’t anything that a little weekend painting job can’t fix.

Shades can be painted either by spray painting or by manually painting them with a brush. Either way, you will need to carefully remove them from your window and then set them over a tarp or sheet of cloth on a hardwood floor.

Think strategically about the color that you choose. Not only do you want a color that you like, but you also want a color that complements the rest of the room and can possibly increase your home’s value too.

Find A Replacement

Finally, if all other options fail or are not possible, replacing your shades completely will be your best bet. The good news is that window shades are not all that expensive and are commonly available for the twenty to fifty dollar range, so it’s not like you’re going to be sacrificing a big chunk of your checking account.

Making Your Window Shades Look Nicer

If you’re not satisfied with the look of the window shades in your home, you can take action to make them look the way you want using any of the methods we have just outlined and discussed.
