Has anybody replaced their day/night window shades with blinds ?
I restrung one of our d/n pleated window shades,which was a pain .
Just thinking , regular window blinds ,would give a more homey look.

DW, want's the day/night shades replaced in the bedroom , she doesn't like that you can't have the window open for fresh air without having the D/N shade up .
Regular venetian blinds going in as soon as she finds " just the right ones " we had the regular blinds in our 5ers. Only down side I can think of , is that in a coach if they rattle you'll be able to hear them , ours will be 30+ feet back, behind us, with the engine so I'm not thinking we'll hearing them.

Working on it now. Mini blinds and curtains are much more functional than the pleated day/night blinds. Curtains make no noise and go in the washer for cleaning.
