In my last post, I talked about the many brands of blinds that are available on the market today, and how nice it would be to have a break down of what each brand offered. Last time I talked about Hunter Douglas, and today my spiel is going to be about Bali brand blinds. Bali has been a trusted name in blinds since 1939. They offer custom-made quality blinds at an affordable price, and with a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from, you can find a window treatment for every window in your home big or small. They also offer a warranty, if you are not satisfied with your blinds, Bali will refund your money or replace the blinds. Their vertical blinds come in 135 colors and you can choose between fabric and vinyl. They also offer different ways of displaying them on your window; instead of…
I don’t know about you, but when it comes time for cleaning, windows are the last thing on my mind. You wouldn’t think it would be that way, they are a very visible part of the house, and in some cases, a very prominent feature of the home. I have seen homes on lakes or overlooking beautiful vistas that have a whole wall of windows. So why is it the last thing I think about with cleaning? For some reason, I have it in my head that people won’t actually see my windows; they will be looking at the living room, kitchens, bedrooms, etc. and their eye won’t be drawn to the window. But when it comes time for the holidays, it’s a good idea to get everything clean, so I go to Ann Arbor housekeeping for an all around clean done by professionals who not only clean all rooms,…
I’ve been thinking about the different name brands for blinds, so over the next few posts, I am going to talk about some of the more popular name brands for blinds individually, listing a few highlights to consider. I think that this will help when you are standing in the blinds aisle at a home improvement store wondering which brand would be the best. Just because an item is more expensive than the others, it doesn’t always mean that it’s the best fit for you. Sometimes if you are on a limited budget, some of the lower costing blinds may work just fine for your home or business.

For years now I’ve wondered what the difference is between curtains and drapes. For a while, I thought that they were the same thing. So I decided to find out the answer to this question once and for all: are curtains and drapes the same thing?
Blinds can be a great addition in any home, there are many different styles and choices out there available in any price range. But what are the steps needed to clean them?
As we all know, there are many different styles of blinds out there; of the many choices vinyl, aluminum, and wood are the three most popular. I have talked a little about vinyl and aluminum, today I will cover wood blinds. There are two main reasons to get wood blinds vs the other styles; looks and insulation function.
If you have small children or pets and you want to have shades in your house, cordless treatments are a better option because exposed cords pose a strangulation risk. In cordless shades, the cords are hidden within the fabric, and the fabric is all one piece so that there are no strings anywhere to pull on. The shade can be moved up or down either with a wand, a remote, or simply by pushing them up and down. They are much safer for kids, and give you peace of mind.
So a couple of posts ago I talked about the importance of blackout curtains in a bedroom to filter out light. But of course, light can still come in through the gap in the curtains, so to REALLY filter out the most light, you have to consider blinds.
In my last post, I talked about blackout curtains, and how my son needed them when he was small. I wanted to share with you today the poem that preceeded my purchase of those curtains.
