Vertical blinds are an incredibly diverse, functional, aesthetically pleasing and unique way of covering a window. They are a popular type of window blind that consists of a headrail and vertical strips of fabric called blades. The headrail stretches the length of the window and the blades hang from it. They are generally drawn across the window by cords or wands, which also allows them to be tilted too for light and privacy control.
Below we look at some of the key reasons why vertical blinds can be a great option for your home or business.
They Look Great on Large Windows
Vertical blinds look very classy on a long window as they naturally compliment their shape and make the room appear bigger. This makes them a popular option in offices and living rooms in homes where there are large windows of glass doors. Venetian blinds can be a bit too heavy for large windows while some people prefer the louvered light control vertical blinds offer over the sun filtering effect of roller blinds.
Ideal for Sliding Doors
If you’ve got a large glass door leading out to your patio, balcony or backyard, it can be difficult to find a window dressing option that is functional and looks great. Vertical blinds allow you to shade the glass whilst still having easy access to the door. A vertical blind is ideal as you can draw the blind right up to the door. Any other blind would have you ducking underneath it or adjusting it every time.
Easy Light Control
A vertical blind provides better levels of tilt and angle capabilities as Venetian blinds. You can block sunlight whilst still being able to see outside, depending on the position of the sun or adjust the blind position to maximise indoor light at different times of the day.
Attractive and Versatile
Given the wide range of materials, textures, styles and finishes vertical blinds are available in, there’s a wide range of options to choose from so you can find something that suits your home or office space. Vertical blinds provide a very classic, neat and tidy look to any room because of their straight design and sleek lines.
They Make Your Ceiling Look Higher
Vertical lines in interior design create the impression of greater height in a room. For example, wallpaper with vertical stripes. The same occurs with vertical blinds, which add to the appearance of a higher ceiling, especially when running across patio doors or on floor-to-ceiling windows.
Easy to Maintain
Vertical blinds can be cleaned quite easily. If the slats are made from fabric, they can quickly be unhinged from the tracks to be washed and dried. Any other material can simply be swiped with a damp cloth or gently dusted. If any of the slats are ever damaged or worn, replacing one individually is quite simple.
