Vertical Blinds History

When we plan to buy window blinds, window shades, or curtains for our dream homes, we often are spoiled for choice. It can be difficult to figure out whether you want faux wood blinds or vertical blinds, or some other type such as natural blinds which give a cozy feeling to your room.

Vertical Blinds History – A Classic Treatment

Vertical blinds are a classic treatment that has been around for a long time. Like any other product, they have evolved over the years.

In the year 1950, Edward and Frederick Bopp invented vertical blinds. This duo started their own company ”Sun Vertical” and patented their vertical blinds in 1960. Even though they sold off their business and patent that year, the evolution of vertical blinds continued.

In the 1970s, there were only a few choices of fabric and the color choices too were few. The fabrics were embedded with stiffener to prevent fraying and a beige and white colored thick textile was used for these blinds.

Over the years, affordable window blinds have gone through many technological changes. Now they are available in flat plastic (PVC), fabric, faux wood materials, embossed PVC, wood, metal, and a few other materials. We often see wood trim at the top and bottom of these vertical window blinds which give them strength and support.

Vertical blinds have remained a popular choice for large windows or sliding doors due to their affordability and simple functionality.
