Shopping for anything is fun in my opinion. So when my spouse and I set out to find replacement windows for our home I was excited and up for the challenge. I never thought we would be in for so many different choices. I did however think it would be much simpler than it turned out. The choices were endless. It was crazy. Double hung, sliders, windows with blinds between the glass the option are truly endless.
I decided since I have children and pets that I would really only focus on the windows with blinds between the glass. It just seems like a no brainer. I will end up saving money in the long run because I will never have to replace the curtains or blinds again. I cannot tell you how many times my cats have climbed the curtains and ruined them. I replaced them last year because they were so tattered. So that at least narrowed down one major decision. So this is when I began to relax a bit. Little did I know that the options that came next for the blinds between the glass were just as overwhelming.
I know that my decision is the right one for our family though so I will do it. There are so many reasons homeowners should consider windows with blinds between the glass. Anyone with activity going on in their home knows that shade, blinds and curtains get destroyed quickly.
Think about mini blinds. I am sure we have all lived in a home or apartment that had them when we were just starting out. How gross was it to see all the dust, animal dander and built up dirt on the blinds. Then when you would go to wipe it off it just made it worse. Now you had build up starting on your blinds and they would never return to the bright white you originally purchased.
Windows with blinds between the glass are also nice in regards that there are no loose cords. They are completely safe for use within a children’s bedroom. You will not have to worry about strangulation from cords. The blinds are installed inside the windows. This alleviates the issues of cords and heads getting stuck between blinds trying to look outside. I wish we had these when my children were smaller. They are so safe and convenient. Many times I would sneak in at nap time to see my son out of his bed peering out into the yard. I am so thankful we never had an accident with our blinds.
Windows with blinds between the glass also provide better insulation form the elements. They also keep the air, be it heat or air conditioning, in your home better than conventional windows with blinds or curtains. This leads to an energy tax credit making windows with blinds between the glass a more economical choice.
I mentioned the dust build up on mini blinds however curtains are also retainers of dust and allergens. Windows with blinds between the glass help to reduce the amount of allergens within the home environment. People with allergies and asthma are perfect candidates for replacement windows that have the blinds installed between the glass.
Last but not least of course is the benefit of having the latest trend in replacement windows. They are incredibly stylish and can be designed for any home contemporary, modern or rustic. Windows with blinds between the glass are more affordable than ever. I am so pleased with our purchase and am looking forward to not having to replace windows or window treatments for a very long time.
