Vertical blinds certainly aren’t exactly the trendiest window treatment. These blinds are often overlooked and thought of as tacky white metal strips that bang together on the window. What most people don’t know is that vertical blinds now come in a variety of materials, patterns and textures to create a clean and stylish look that is perfectly suited for patio doors and large windows. Additionally, vertical blinds now move across a window with superb and silent new technology.
So what’s not to love about vertical window blinds? Here are our top three reasons to choose vertical blinds!
Finding a window covering for sliding glass doors or patio doors can prove to be difficult. Window coverings for sliding glass doors and patio doors need to open from side-to-side and need to be durable and easy to clean since doors are usually higher traffic areas. In terms of window coverings that slide open, the options are somewhat limited. If you’re looking for a window covering that slides from side to side and offers louvers or vanes that can be tilted to allow various degrees of light in, then the product that will provide the best functionality and most versatility is a vertical blind.
Verticals now come in so many materials, patterns, colors and textures that you will no longer think that vertical window treatments are boring or outdated. We all remember the white PVC or metal-like material - perfect for office buildings and other commercial applications. This is your most basic choice, but to take advantage of all the new innovations in design, we highly recommend any of the vertical treatments that are fabric which are softer, quieter and more stylish, giving you that relaxed drapery feel and come in many colors and many textures. There are also wood and faux-wood verticals that come in beautiful stains to match your furniture or flooring and who can resist the rich and classic feel of wood accents-so stunning on a large window. Solar material is now available on vertical blinds, made of the same amazing material as Solar Screens, which will reduce glare, block those harmful UV rays and control the heat of the sun blazing through those large patio doors.
Since verticals are a perfect choice for large windows, affordability is a great advantage when selecting this window treatment. Obviously, when you have a very large window it means more material and more expense. Vertical window treatments are so cost effective you can add these blinds to your room and still have plenty of budget left over for more decor for the rest of your home.
