DON’T SPOOK YOUR POTENTIAL HOME BUYERS AWAY!

Most realtors will tell you some of the slower real estate sales happen during the holidays. Van Gogh Window Fashions wants to help your chances for a sale this fall! Take our advice and don’t spook your home buyers with old exterior paint and window coverings. DIY experts say the first appeal to your home is the exterior appearance. We all enjoy covering our houses with spider webs and graveyards in October, pumpkins and hay in November, and snowman and reindeer in December. Decorating for the fall is fun for the entire family, but leave the exterior shutters with a fresh coat of paint and free from cob webs. If you want your neighbors’ approval and your potential home buyers looking at your home, keep the decor simple and fresh paint on the shutters.

Van Gogh Window Fashions is in the business of repairing and applying new paint on old shutters. Call us, the experts on exterior shutter repair, at 205.987.3711 for more information. Save money & don’t spook the buyers away. Call Van Gogh today!

FARMHOUSE STYLE: DECORATING FOR FALL WITH SHUTTERS!

Van Gogh’s Board and Batten Farmhouse shutters are great for getting your home ready for the holidays. Have you ever considered taking your old shutters inside for fall decorating? This popular trend uses reclaimed shutters for interior purposes. Van Gogh Window Fashions believes in utilizing scraps of any kind for future use, and we love this idea.

In this picture, you will find farmhouse exterior shutters painted white, distressed, and being used as a backdrop for fall staples. Anyone can find pumpkins, buckets, candles, fall leaf arrangements, and a large pail at a yard sale, Hobby Lobby store, or maybe even in an attic. This is one simple way to bring the autumn color scheme into your home, while keeping it all very natural and simplistic.

FALL’S TOP FIVE TRENDS ARE IN WINDOW COVERINGS!

Good Housekeeping’s September issue outlines some of the hottest trends in window covering design for 2013. We are excited to offer these products to all of our Van Gogh customers. Check out the top five fall trends below.

#1. Neutral colors are best.
According to experts, neutral shades are timeless and efficient.

#2. Wovens are the most popular.
Natural wovens are modern and create texture in any room. Van Gogh’s bamboo shades are found in the 2013 Southern Living Idea House.

#3. Aluminum blinds are back.
Some of the most popular television shows are turning us back to the 1950s. Experts are calling this design look “polished”. Van Gogh blinds look best in a 2 inch louver slat, and our cotton tapes add elegance to any room.

#4. Go sheer.
Customers never lose when letting the outdoors into their home. Sheer shades can open up a space and bring in the light.

#5. Plantation shutters are a “style investment”.
Interior designers agree that this product is worth the cost. No cords needed with this investment. Van Gogh shutters have louvers that include a steel rod from top to bottom, making our wood shutters last for years to come.

IT’S HOT! REDUCE HEAT IN YOUR HOME ON A BUDGET.

Summer heat is already here and Van Gogh has the perfect solution for turning that hot room into a cool space of comfort and relaxation! Many of our customers are looking for shades in their home, but do not realize the power of blackout shades in a room. Blackout shades are used in this picture to add texture to the decor of the room, but also to block sunlight coming in. You can operate these shades manually with many safety features if you have small children. Another option for those looking for cordless is our motorized blackout shades. These operate by a wall swicth or by a hand-held remote.

Van Gogh Window Fashions has many shades to choose from, but for rooms with multiple large windows that get direct sunlight we suggest the blackout roller shades. The interior of the shade has a blackout material so that when sun hits, it is reflected off the shade keeping your interior space cool. You will see many commercial applications of this in storefront windows, but the trend now is using the same applications for interior spaces within the home. Much like the picture above, this shade is beautiful and finished the room very well. For more information on ways to keep things cool in your home with plantation shutters or shades, call Van Gogh today at 205.225.9866!
