Upgrades offered by Blinds Chalet add to aesthetic appeal of blinds and shades
Aug 15 2011
Blinds Chalet offers many upgrades that add high-quality style to their windows and help turn them into a design focal poin.
When outfitting a window for new shades or blinds, upgrading them with such features as cornices and routeless ladders gives them added visual appeal.
For instance, adding a cornice-style valance is a free upgrade that places it outside the frame on wood blinds and faux wood blinds. While they aren't recommended for windows with trim, the standard topper on those windows can be upgraded to a 5-inch decorative valance that enhances the look of the blinds.
Decorative tapes are attractive on wood and aluminum blinds, and have the added advantage of blocking light that sometimes comes through the route holes in horizontal blind slats.
Wood and faux wood blinds can be upgraded with routeless ladders for blocking light and easier cleaning because each slat can be removed separately. However, this mobile advantage is not advised in home with small children or pets.
Edge binding is an appealing and functional upgrade for bamboo shades because the fabric tapes that wraps around the edge of the woven wood shades helps prevent cords from fraying and the shade from unraveling.
A cassette headrail on roller shades and solar screen shades is a worthy upgrade that hides the brackets and has a matching fabric insert that presents a finished look to the rollers.
