When Was the Last Time You Updated the Window Coverings in Your Home?

After 30 years of being in the same house, you are now looking at a change. Your youngest daughter will be graduating from college in May and already has a job offer in place. Her older sister graduated from medical school last year and is already working. While there were many times when the girls were in school that your house would be the center of all activities. More and more often, your family events are not taking place in the home where both girls grew up. Partly because the two story home is simply too difficult for your husband to navigate, you have decided that it is time to get your home of 30 years on the market. With an update to the front of the home in the form of plantation shutters and new coat of paint on the front door, the house looks better than ever.
The girls will miss their childhood home, but both will have houses of their own not far away and you have promised that you will look for a new home with a neighborhood pool and clubhouse. Those additional entertainment spaces will help fill the void of any missed memories and, quite frankly, both you and your husband are looking forward to a space that will not require so much upkeep. Although there are many fond memories in the house where you raised the girls, the reality is that there are also a lot of projects around the house like the huge yard and vast landscaping that need constant attention.

The realtor has assured you that with the new plantation shutters on the outside and the updates that you have made in the last five years to the kitchen that you home will sell quickly.

Custom Plantation Shutters and Other Window Treatments Add Both Beauty and Character to a Home

From blackout blinds in a bedroom to decorative shutters on the outside of your home, there are many ways that you can personalize your space. The contrasting colors of exterior plantation shutters, for instance, can help your home distinguish itself in the neighborhood. And with the use of interior products like custom shades and draperies, you can create a space that feels both comfy and warm. In fact, as more and more homes are constructed with large windows, it is increasingly common to see designers return to ceiling to floor drapes that can add both drama and function to your home.

The latest research indicates that most home owners replace their window treatments every seven to eight years. This is a fact that contributes to the very recent research that indicates that in spring of 2016, nearly 31 million people in the U.S. indicated that they live in a household that bought drapes, blinds, and other window treatments within the last 12 months.

Whether you are making changes for yourself or preparing to sell, there are a number of decisions that can add both beauty and value to your home.
