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.
New season, new trends, new look
Fall is all about natural, earthy colours and embracing the comfort of staying indoors.
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.
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.
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.

Fall 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.
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.
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:

Quick tips on blocking drafts until your new windows arrive
Besides appearance, checking for drafts is the easiest way to determine whether your windows are ready for autumn.
If they’re not, here are some stop-gap tricks you can use to reduce drafts until your replacement windows are ready:
1. Replace and old weather stripping and caulking wherever necessary
3. Get an old tube sock, fill it with insulation and place them on the window sill.
