Unhappy day/night shades

the bedroom day/night shade strings broke in my 7 month old TT
I don't like the shades that much so I'm thinking buying mini blinds for the bedroom. JustBlinds.com custom cut blinds to size.

Wouldn't this be a warranty issue? If your TT is only 7 months old, I would think so. Blinds are okay, I'm just not a big fan of them. If it were me, I'd put curtains in. I put curtains on the windows in the bedroom over the day/night shades because it still wasn't dark enough when the sun comes up. They work great!! Just installed a simple rod inside of the valance and made curtains with a pocket at the top.

if I liked the day/night shades I would have it replaced under warranty & I have thought about curtains but I'm not crazy about them either.

I was looking at the blinds.com site and they have a double cell room blackout shade I may use to replace mine. The OEM lets in to much light. Their is an option for bottom up/top down operation that would allow bringing the top down a bit for ventilation without someone being able to see anything but the ceiling.
