Vertical blinds may have made their debut in the 1970’s, but with new fabrics, instead of only vinyl, they are far from outdated and they still make for beautiful and affordable window treatments.
Fabric vertical blinds can look spectacular on large windows, sliding doors and patio doors and offer a unique alternative to drapes and curtains. Made with a wide variety of soft, light filtering or room darkening fabrics, they let diffused natural light into your room without sacrificing your privacy, while sewn-in weights at the bottom of each louver keep the blinds in place.
In this blog, we share with you the reasons to consider fabric vertical blinds.
1) Amazingly decorative
This is one of the most important features of fabric vertical blinds. They are available in a variety of colors, designs, and fabrics according to your personal style. They can be custom made according to the kind of look you want in any room. The light-colored fabrics offer diffused light inside, while the heavier, darker fabrics offer high privacy with minimum infiltration.
2) They last for years
Made to measure with a sturdy finish, aluminum headrails used in vertical blinds are one of the main reasons for their smooth functioning and operation. The controls are out of reach of children and safe to use. They are also very easy to clean and some styles can even be washed in a machine.
3) Easy to control light
Vertical blinds can be operated with a wand/baton or with a cord and chain. You get maximum control over the amount of light and privacy you have at any given time. While people swear by the positive implications of natural light inside homes, too much of it can disrupt sleep or be too glaring when reading or watching television. However, with fabric vertical blinds, you can be assured of their sturdy panels which can be suitably altered and tilted, letting in only as much sunlight as you desire.
4) They’re affordable
If you have large windows or doors to cover, that can get expensive. With fabric vertical blinds, you’re able to cover them at a cost that’s much friendlier to your budget.
Fabric vertical blinds are the ideal solution to cover large windows and sliding doors with hundreds of fabrics that you can choose from to coordinate with your home decor. They are durable, easy to operate and a cost-effective.

With external patio shades, your outdoors will stay protected against UV rays, heat, as well as cold gusts of wind. So when you have outdoor space, why not make full use of it through motorized patio shades?
For similar style and durability as manual screens, but improved accessibility and convenience, motorized solar screens are an excellent choice for enclosing your patio, deck, balcony, or gazebo. Our motorized shades provide comprehensive protection from the sun's harmful UV rays, forming a physical barrier that grants full shade and lowered temperatures during even the most brutal days of summer. Best of all, our solar shades do all this without sacrificing much-needed ventilation and your view. You can ensure your patio remains shady all day by easily adjusting these screens to accommodate the shifting angle of the sun. Additionally, the darker the fabric the more your view out is preserved.
Motorized solar screens feature numerous useful benefits beyond shade. They offer peaceful privacy from the prying eyes of your neighbors or passersby as well as preventing the intrusion of annoying mosquitoes and other bugs. You can comfortably lounge and dine late into the evening without constantly needing to reapply bug repellent or burn a smelly citronella candle. With the simple push of a button, your outdoor space will become the ideal spot for relaxing on a warm, sunny day. Motorized patio shades are perfect not only for the summer but for enjoying your backyard all year round. They can shield you from spring showers and fall winds. In addition, if your outdoor space overlaps with any windows, you’ll enjoy substantial energy savings by reducing your reliance on HVAC.

One of the first questions to tackle when choosing new window treatments is just how much light you'd like to block out. Do you need light filtering shades? Room darkening? Or are you looking for blackout? What's the difference? There are some key differences in how window treatments affect light, specifically when it comes to styles and fabric choices. That’s why there’s an advantage to working with the design professionals at LC Window Treatments. We understand these differences so we can help you make the right choice for your home.
Light-filtering, room-darkening and blackout shades come in a variety of different products (i.e cellular shades, roller shades, roman shades, sheer banded shades) but how do you know which one is right for you? Here are the differences between how our products control light.
Light-filtering shades transform harsh sunlight into a soft glow and are better for rooms that don't require complete darkness or privacy such as your kitchen or living room. Light filtering shades brighten the room and reduces the need for artificial lighting.
Light filtering can be further controlled by the window treatment you choose. Cellular shades and sheer banded shades will soften and diffuse. More opaque shades in any style will block more light from entering a room.
These materials also offer varying degrees of privacy depending on how open you want the space to feel. Letting natural light into a room doesn’t mean you have to feel exposed to the rest of the world.
