Should I Stay or Should I Go?

The average person moves about 11 times in a lifetime.  While some people may stay in a home for many years, others may often move from place to place.  It is an influential factor when purchasing home furnishing, making decisions regarding upgrades, home expansions, or home renovations.

Owning a home is a huge personal investment.  It is more than likely the most expensive purchase of your life and will cost the most to maintain out of all the items you purchase in life.  Between utility bills (hydro, water, electricity, gas), property taxes, insurance, maintenance (furnace, roof, windows, floors, plumbing), and mortgage, for a high population, this will be the majority of someone’s paycheck.

Maintaining a home takes time, decisions, and money.  There is an advantage to educating yourself before making these decisions as certain choices will increase the value of your home, and others will retain that price or decrease it.

Here is a safe checklist to use when purchasing window blinds for your home:

  1. Resale Value
  2. Curbside Appeal
  3. Likeability to the Masses
  4. Functionality
  5. Energy Efficiency


Questions about blinds to ask yourself:

  • Am I choosing a window treatment that is commonly used for this space? Does it make sense to have this product in this room?
  • Does my home’s exterior have continuity? Does this product enhance the exterior view of my home?
  • Would this type of blind have a broad appeal? Is it neutral in color and subtle yet complimenting the existing décor?
  • Is this window treatment easy to operate? Should I add motorization to this blind?
  • Does this window covering solution effectively help regulate heat?

If you’re unsure of these answers to your blind questions, have a window covering specialist at Milton Blinds guide you during an in-home consultation to make the best decision about your window blinds for your home.  Complimentary shop at home consultations offered in Milton and surrounding areas.
