Vertical window blinds consist of vertical vanes that move side to side on a track system. Their durable materials, tiltable slats, and ease of use makes them a perfect solution and ideal choice for sliding doors, patio doors, and other high traffic areas. The smooth vanes are great for light control and covering large windows, and the vertical blinds stack neatly out of the way when not in use. Although vertical blinds usually have a simple style, new blinds and different slat options allow for new ways to add styles and textures to your decor. From real wood vertical blinds to fabric vertical blinds and pvc options, installing vertical blinds is a budget friendly way to add visual interest to your room.

Why Custom Vertical Blinds Are Perfect for Your Sliding Glass Doors ?
Vertical blinds are one of the easiest window treatments to use when covering sliding glass. Vertical blinds offer excellent light blocking functionality, but their main feature is that they move left and right in the same direction as your sliding glass door. Unlike a horizontal blind which would still block a portion of the door when raised, vertical window coverings have slats that run floor to ceiling and that move to one side to keep out of the way when not in use. For this reason, when compared to other window treatments, their smooth slats add more convenience. This same feature makes them an excellent choice for large windows where they can stack neatly to one side, but also a less ideal option for smaller windows as the stack placement would block more of the view.
The Unique Light Control Features of Vertical Blinds
Whether you are looking to replace slats on your existing vertical blinds, or are looking for a window covering for blocking light, vertical blinds are a great choice that feature easy cleaning and room darkening when needed. Their wide slats come in a number of different materials, from faux wood vertical blinds, to aluminum, to real wood, fabric, and even PVC. Some even have s shaped slats that offer total light blockage. One big benefit is how the slats hang from the top. This allows you to tilt the vanes to view through when needed, or close them to reduce incoming light. This style of mounting also makes the vanes easy to clean and kid friendly. You can also go cordless for additional safety.
