Grey Skies are Going, but Grey Window Treatments are IN!

With Spring in full swing things are starting to heat up. Those gloomy skies are making way for a brighter tomorrow, but one thing remains clear – grey interior design is here to stay.

Designing with grey in mind will help the colors that you bring into the room pop with more effect than many other colors. Grey also works well as a base, though it may seem drab and dreary to have so much grey in your home the neutrality that it offers increases the options that you can bring into your home. Grey walls stand as an accent to those pieces that you choose to hang there.

Using grey helps other colors come to life!

If you’d rather not go crazy with the grey, but you still like the added effect that it brings, you could always just use it as an accent wall color. If even that seems extreme you could always incorporate grey into your window treatments using drapery.

These are just some of the options when looking to go grey!

The great thing about grey is that the number of complimentary colors that comes with designing in grey opens a world of possibility. So whether you want to go grey all over, or just want to have a touch of grey there’s a design option available to you. 3 Day Blinds makes it easy to look at window treatments in any color you want, visit 3 Day Blinds today to schedule your free in-home consultation.

Cleaning Window Treatments Made Simple

No matter what type of window treatment you have we have a method to clean it. Head over to our Care and Cleaning section.

Pillowcases for Dust Free Cleaning

Fan blades can be a tricky spot to clean. Often times, you’ll need a step ladder and then there’s a mess to clean up afterward. Take away the struggle of and use a pillowcase. Simply slip the pillowcase over the fan blades and you’ll have a bag to collect the dust!

 

Throw it Out!

One of the easiest ways to clean a space is by getting rid of your clutter. Maybe you’ve got a DIY project from Pinterest that you said you were going to finish. We’re not telling you to give up on your dreams, but if you have things that you haven’t used in 6 months, get rid of them. Donate them, throw them out do whatever, but get them out of your life. The relief you will feel from cleansing your space will help you exponentially.

Remove Light Scratches in Wood Furniture or Flooring

Now this might sound nuts, but you can use walnuts to remove light scratches in wood flooring or furniture. Simply remove the walnut from the shell and lightly rub on the affected areas. Your furniture and flooring will look great in no time.

And now that you’re done sit back and relax.

Obviously, it’s easier to have someone else do the work, but if you’re feeling like a real go-getter these tips will make the time fly by.
