When you’re considering window blinds in Los Altos Hills, CA, don’t overlook your recreational housing like houseboats and RVs. There are several things that you need to consider when you want to replace window blinds in houseboats or RVs.
Probably the most important thing that you need to consider is privacy. Both houseboats and RVs are in locations where the next-door neighbors are really close by. The amount of space between boats in slips is at most about 20 feet. In campgrounds and RV parks, there may be 20 feet or less space between you and your neighbors on either side. Therefore, privacy becomes paramount when you’re choosing window coverings.
Window blinds give you the privacy you want when you need it, but they also give you light control and allow you to make the space bigger by having a lot of natural light come in when you want.
Another factor that you need to consider with houseboats or RVs when you’re looking at window blinds is how well the window blinds will insulate the windows. Like residential houses, most of the hot air and cold air in a houseboat or an RV escapes out of the windows. Window blinds can be tightly fitted in the window spaces to eliminate air leaks and keep the inside of your houseboat or RV more comfortable, no matter what the weather is outside.
RV and houseboat windows are not standard-sized windows. Hunter Douglas window blinds can be custom fit for your houseboat or RV windows. This will ensure that the window blinds provide the functionality that you want in each area of your RV or houseboat.
Another consideration for window blinds in your houseboat or RV is the ability to block out all light, especially when people are sleeping. Choosing blackout window blinds for sleeping areas will ensure that everyone gets a good night’s rest.
RVs and houseboats generally need to be cleaned out after each use, unless they are your primary residence. But whether they’re recreational or they are the place you call home, you want to make sure that your window coverings are easy to clean and easy to maintain. Hunter Douglas faux wood window blinds are exceptionally easy to clean. Simply wipe them down with a damp cloth and dry them with a microfiber cloth. To deter dust buildup, when the window blinds are dry are dry, wipe both sides of each slat with the dryer sheet.
Window coverings in houseboats and RVs are lowered and raised more than most window coverings in a home. Therefore, they experience a lot more wear and tear than a home window covering. Hunter Douglas window blinds are durable and can withstand wear and tear from constant use, so you’ll get a window blind that will last you a long time.
Window blinds in RVs and houseboats that are hanging loose may rattle when the RV or houseboat is moving. There’s an easy fix for this. Hold down brackets are available that can keep the bottom rail of the blinds anchored to the wall or door so that they don’t move around when the RV or houseboat is moving.
Finally, there are so many window blind options that you can express your style in your houseboat or RV in a unique way that makes it feel like home, whether it is home or to home away from home.
