Transforming the Blinds

Posted on

Because blinds are such an important part of dressing the windows, it is important that people take the time to properly care for them.

Blinds are a big part of the décor of your home or office. There are so many different types and looks to choose from. Blinds should not be confused with a shade. There are certain things that a blind does differently from a shade. For instance, a shade will only raise and lower, while blinds will go up and down and also move side to side. Blinds can also be opened and closed without being raised or lowered.

When your blinds are cared for properly, it will extend the life of the blinds and save homeowners and businesses alike a small fortune by not having to replace them often. Venetian blinds are the most popular coverage that homeowners and businesses have. If they are not properly cleaned, they can lose their luster and will end up becoming a dust magnet.

Many homeowners and businesses will also decorate their homes and offices with motorized blinds. Consumers are able to purchase motorized mini blinds online or at their local retailer. The greatest part about this is that consumers do not have to go out and buy a new set of window treatments. They can transform their Venetian blinds to become motorized simply by replacing the manufacturer’s wand that is on their existing set of blinds.

When a consumer goes to buy a motor they will be happy to know that the wands come in a variety of finishes. They range anywhere from wood, plastic and even a faux wood, to name a few.

When you buy a wand for your blinds, you will notice that the batteries operating the blinds are lithium batteries, which are the same type of batteries that you buy for some watches and your cellular device. Lithium batteries have a long lifespan and do not need to be replaced often. This battery is also known to be heat resistant and can withstand high temperatures without melting inside the wand’s battery compartment.

After some time of operation, the batteries may begin to operate slowly when being controlled by the remote wand--- that will be a signal that you will need to change the batteries. If you desire to kick it up a notch there is a kit you can buy that will allow you to control the operation of your blinds from your cell phone. However, if cell phone remote operation is the route you choose to go, be prepared to put out a couple of hundred dollars for this type of luxury and convenience.

Sometimes homeowners find that these blinds are “dust catchers”, therefore, it is best to do regular dusting on the Venetian blinds in order to keep them from becoming dusty and dirty. And as we all know they can be the most time-consuming blinds to clean because they are constructed from so many metal slats and the dirt on these slats builds up very quickly.

It is best to clean the blinds with a gentle motion because the metal will be very easily bent out of shape. Some homeowners find it easier to soak them in a cleaning solution in the bathtub. And afterward, they will lay them flat in the open air so they can dry naturally.

Therefore, if you want to boost the operation of your vertical blinds with an inexpensive remote control, then now is the time for you to make the switch to bring new life to your windows. A remote-controlled mini blind will bring ease to letting in the daylight and giving you your much-needed privacy at nighttime.
