Why Paper Blinds Fold Under the Pressure

Anyone who has ever moved from one location to another knows that it can be one of the most stressful experiences in life, not to mention costly and time consuming. After all, you’re packing up your entire life, and whether you’re moving across town or across the country, that’s no small task.

Once the moving truck is gone, and the last box has been unpacked, most of us just want to sit down and relax, or maybe take a long nap. But, unless you are moving into a fully furnished house or apartment, the window treatments in your new place might be severely lacking, or nonexistent.

Feeling Exposed Without Window Treatments?

It can be really difficult to feel settled without proper window treatments. You might have taken them for granted before, not realizing how much warmth, style and privacy they brought to your old house. Now, their necessity has never been more evident.

Because of the practical and aesthetic impact that window treatments can have on a new home, many people prioritize the purchase of blinds, shades, or drapes as the first order of business. But when calling around to popular online and local window treatment vendors, they end up shocked at how long it will take to receive the order. When the salesperson senses the hesitation and disappointment in the caller’s voice, they might recommend buying paper blinds from a retail store.

Are Paper Blinds Worth the Trouble

Paper blinds are temporary window coverings that are often used when waiting for permanent window treatments. They consist of accordion-folded paper with an adhesive strip, with a set of small clips that is typically included to hold them up.

While paper binds do provide temporary privacy, they have many drawbacks. First of all, they can’t be cleaned, so if a child decides they are an ideal canvas for his next masterwork, then you’ll have to look at the painting or drawing until the long wait for some of our competitors’ window treatments is over.

Second, while fairly easy to install, removing paper blinds can be very difficult. The residue left behind by the adhesive backing can be tough to remove, and many recommended removal methods run the risk of damaging your paint or walls.

Third, installing paper blinds adds extra, unnecessary cost and work to the already stressful experience of getting settled in a new place. If you are paying for window treatments, why should you have to make an extra trip to pay for tacky paper blinds that you’re just going to have to tear down anyway? Don’t you already have enough to do?
