Spring is finally here, much to the relief of many of us who feel that winter overstayed its welcome here in Milwaukee this year. And, in celebration of the coming warmer weather, many people like to do a bit of cleaning with the goal of making their home more hospitable during the summer.
One often forgotten part of the house that you should clean if you're taking on a spring cleaning project is the blinds. No matter what kind of window treatments your house has, dust can easily sit on the small slats of your shades, which can give them a dirty grey appearance and contribute to the amount of allergens in the air of your home.
Rather than ignoring the problem, which will likely cause moisture coming in from the window to make the dust sticky and much harder to remove, the best idea is to tackle the problem now.
While you're doing this, you might also notice that your curtains have collected some dust. Since we don't interact with these fabrics every day, it can be easy to forget that they still can become dirty, but this is an excellent opportunity to make sure that yours are cleaner. Rather than putting them back up on their own, leaving the house looking the same as it did before, why not try something different?
A custom cornice will effectively hide the hardware at the top of your window that's left behind by your custom blinds, but will do so in a much more sophisticated way, you can use the fabric from your existing drapery panels to ensure that they coordinate.
