If you’re thinking about replacing the curtains, blinds, and/or shades in your home but are worried about the cost, there are some ways to reduce it. Here are some window treatment money saving tips to keep in mind.
1 – Look for Discounts & Promotions
The holidays are a great time to save on window treatments. Many stores and/or manufacturers offer discounts, promotions, and rebates. Here is the current promotion offered by Lynne Greene Interiors for Hunter Douglas products. Click on the image for additional information.
2 – Select Durable Options
It’s important to consider both the current expenses and what you might spend over time. For instance, if you purchased cheap blinds from the local hardware store, you might spend a bit less right now, but you’ll likely be replacing them within a couple of years. Whereas, if you spent a little more on quality blinds now, they could last for many years to come. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.”
The material and design of window treatments can also impact their life span. Some are stronger and longer-lasting than others. Also, designs with fewer moving parts are less likely to wear down or fail over time. These should all be considerations when selecting among the wide variety of window treatment options.
3 – Choose Energy Efficient Alternatives
Window treatment money saving tips go beyond the cost of the window treatments themselves. Choosing blinds or shades that are energy efficient can reduce your heating bill. The savings definitely add up. Those window treatments could eventually pay for themselves, and more, in the form of a reduced heating or cooling bills!
