Making home improvements to your house is always a bit of an adventure. Many owners struggle with figuring out where to make renovations within their homes.  I have some criteria for homeowners struggling with this decision.  The first factor to look at is the cost of the renovation verse the length of time you are going to be living in this house.

Homeowners will want to make sure that they will benefit from the renovation and that the costs of the project are covered by the increase in property value overtime.  If planning on selling is in the near future the need to ask if the renovation is necessary.  Most of the time the cost of the renovation will not be recouped that quickly so it is best to wait unless the house will not sell without the improvements.

Window renovations are one area in which I feel homeowners can benefit in many ways.  High efficiency windows can dramatically increase the value of a home while decreasing the cost of major utility bills. Replacement windows are one area that draws buyers in.  Homes with windows with blinds between the glass are always the ones clients gravitate towards.  Even if the home needs a bit more work than another the replacement windows seem to win the advantage.

There are so many reasons that windows with blinds between the glass are becoming so popular.  They certainly increase the value of the home which is a benefit to both buyer and seller but what else?  Why would a homeowner looking to stay in their home for the rest of forever want to spend the extra money to purchase these special windows?  They are not going to recoup the value of the windows or are they?  The decrease in energy bills will allow the windows to pay for themselves overtime.

Another pro is the neat and structured look that windows with blinds between the glass gives to a home.  The other nice thing is that kids and animals cannot get into them so they will not get broken or damaged.  There are also no cords to worry about kids and animals getting tangled in.  From the outside the blinds give the home a uniformed look which is difficult with any type of external blind.

Windows with blinds between the glass are great for individuals with asthma and other respiratory issues.  The blinds are not exposed to the outside elements that in the air.  The allergens within your home can’t settle on the blinds if they are not exposed.  The blinds are sealed within the glass not allowing dust to settle.  The other great thing is that there are no blinds to be cleaned.  One less things to clean is always a benefit to me.

There are some limitations with encased blinds such as the color choices are limited.  This however might not be the case for long.  As competition increases companies will need to think of encased window treatments that exist outside standard blinds and standard blind colors.  Seal failure is also something that can happen with this type of replacement window leaving room for minute bugs to enter.  This can be avoided if you buy windows with blinds encased within the glass that allow for the glass to be opened.

Whether it is replacement windows, kitchen renovations, bathroom remodels or additions to your home there is a lot to think about.  Pros and cons exist in every project that involves your home.  Researching options and talking with home improvement specialists you will find what the best fit for your home and budget.
