So you’ve bought your dream home or you found your next destination, either way, congratulations! Moving is both exciting and exhausting all at the same time. You’ve hired the movers, all the boxes are packed up, the cable and internet will be turned on at your new place in a week, you’ve updated your mailing address for all your fan mail, and you found the perfect new park for walking the dog.
Wait — what are we forgetting?
Have you considered when you’ll buy window blinds for your new place? It’s definitely a decision that’s easy to say… “I’ll get to it later.” But, when moving day arrives, think about the issues you’ll be facing without window coverings: Lack of Privacy, Blinding Light, Restless Sleep.
Even if your new home will have window coverings when you move in, you’ll likely want to upgrade them to match your style, it is your place after all! Plus, older window treatments can make an otherwise modern home feel outdated (we don’t want that!).
We’ve put together this guide to help you start thinking about how to buy window treatments for your new home.
You won’t believe how often we hear from people who are in desperate need of window treatments for their new homes. They think blinds and shades are something they can put off buying, but once they move in they realize they’ve made a mistake.
Blinds, 2" cordless Faux wood blinds, Roller shades, blackout shades, zebras, motorized shades:
Provide privacy. This is particularly important for rooms that face the street or are on the first floor of your home. If you are looking for complete privacy, then we recommend our exclusive DIY Blinds Blackout Shades. These shades offer 100% privacy with a color combination that would improve any room.
Regulate temperature All Year Long. East and west-facing rooms get HOT without window treatments in the summer and selecting the wrong shades could mean less regulated temperatures throughout the year. A great thing about all of the blinds created at DIY Blinds is that they were built with the intention to regulate temperature all year long. We keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter no matter where you are located in the USA.
Creates shade. Who wants to be woken up at the crack of dawn when the sun starts to rise? (Unless you are into that kind of thing!) We would recommend one of our lower opacity 1%, 3%, 5% Roller Shades, just enough light entering while still maintaining the exact shade we need.
Add to the ambiance and feel of a new home. Want to watch a family movie in your home theater? Maybe cuddle up around the fireplace with a good book? Set the mood with custom window treatments. We’d recommend for ambiance, our Zebra Shades, our most stylish on the market today to create the right mood you are looking to set in any room.
Protect your new furniture. Yes! Moving means getting all the new furnishings we need to make our home amazing. But do we think about protection and conserving our furniture for the future? Most of the time we are too concerned about the cost of the furniture than the long term value we can keep with protecting them. Without proper shades, the sun’s UV rays can damage fabrics, paintings, furniture and other valuable possessions. Our window treatments are built to offer the best options in UV Protecting blinds, check our descriptions here!
The right time to buy window blinds will depend on your particular situation. But, the best time to call your window treatment experts? That’s now!
