The Benefits of Sprucing Up Your Home with New Windows & Window Coverings this Fall

With September comes the unofficial end of summer, as many kids in Milton and Burlington head back-to-school.

Perhaps you were too busy with things like summer camps or vacations to update the windows and window coverings in your home.

But with fall just around the corner (the first day of autumn is Friday, September 22), now’s the perfect time to get those new window treatments from Fasada you’ve always wanted.

Here’s why.

Colourful drapesNew season, new trends, new look

Fall is all about natural, earthy colours and embracing the comfort of staying indoors.

And by updating your blinds and shutters, you can update your home’s décor to match the season.

At the same time, you can use fall to completely transform the look and feel of your home.

Some of the most popular trends this year include:

  • Adding a pop of colour:

    Going from neutral drapes to vibrant tones like purple, red, blue or green won’t make a room feel darker (something to avoid as the days get shorter). In fact, it’ll bring new life (and light) to your walls, flooring and furniture.

  • Go organic:

    Faux wood blinds or bamboo Pirouette blinds can bring the golds and browns of fall weather inside your home. Not only that, but certain products (like honeycomb shades) are eco-friendly and can help lower your monthly heating bill.

  • Patterned blinds:

    Something like Hunter-Douglas blinds lets you choose from a variety or patterns and fabrics. As the sun shines through, it can create a stunning shade and silhouette display in your home.

  • Rustic shutters:

    There’s something timeless about autumn. Hand-crafted wood shutters can give your Oakville or Hamilton home a classic, well-worn appearance that won’t come across as old or outdates.

Replacing windowsFall is a smart time to replace your windows

You may think the start of another school year, combined with the busy holiday season that’s just around the corner (Thanksgiving is about 4 weeks away), now’s not the best time to update the windows in your home.

On the contrary, autumn is a great time to spruce up your home with new bay, bow or whatever type of replacement vinyl window you want for a variety of reasons.

  • Less energy is lost:

    Fall weather is great. It’s not too hot, nor is it too cold. In other words, you aren’t blasting the heat or cranking the A/C. During the installation process, less energy will escape through an open area where the window is being replaced.

  • Greater availability:

    Spring and summer tend to be the busiest season for things like casement window In fall, the demand goes down. That means it’s a lot easier and more convenient to get Fasada in your neighbourhood.

  • It’s a lot easier to do it now:

    If you’ve noticed a draft coming through your custom window, it’s only going to get colder throughout fall and winter. It’s best to take care of it now before it becomes a big problem once the snow falls.

  • You’ll see an immediate return on investment:

    Old windows are costing you money. A few dollars here and there which you may not notice. But when you install new energy-efficient Vinylbilt windows, your monthly energy bill should go down.
