Replacing Fabric Roman Shades

There would be a time when even the best roman shades have to be replaced by something else, whether roman shades or other window decors. With this being said, you would have to take into consideration what you are going to use to replace your old window shades with. For whatever reason you have in replacing your old shades at home, the replacement should be equal or better than the old shades and it should be able to provide you with the same service and the same quality of sunlight protection that your old shade has done for you.

  • Care instructions: Packing and shipping will typically cause the fabric of this product to wrinkle. First, allow all items to hang for a few days so that the wrinkles can relax and begin to fall out. If necessary, steam the shade on a low heat setting to remove stubborn wrinkles. However, be aware that if the temperature is too high, it could damage the shade. To clean the fabric on the shade, use a feather duster or vacuum lightly using the soft brush attachment.

You have to buy fabric roman shades (if that is what you are going to use to replace your old ones with) that are of the same size and the same dimensions as your old shades. In this way, you would not have to make any structural adjustments to the windows itself and to the various points of attachments that it has. All you would have to do is install it and forget about it. The shades that you are going to buy have to also build up on the features of the old, if you found that useful, or change it entirely, if you found the old ones quite useless.

You also have to be able to dispose of your old shades properly, whether via keeping it locked up somewhere in the basement or the attic or by sending it to the recycling center, selling it online or giving it away. You have to be responsible for getting rid of your shades, because throwing them in the garbage just would not cut it. There are still numerous uses that can be derived from the old shades that you have, instead of just having to put it to waste.

In order to get a new shade, you would have to get rid of your old one. It may not be easy finding a replacement or getting a replacement, but if you know what things to do and how to find the proper shade and how to properly dispose of the old one, then you’d have no trouble in the transition.
