What are vertical blinds ?
Vertical blinds consist of vanes or panels that hang down from a track. They are operated using a cord or wand that pulls the louvers side to side. They can also have the vanes tilted to open or close for added light control.
Buying Guide for Vertical Blinds
With so many options to customize from, it can be tough to know which vertical blinds are the right fit for your space. This section will walk you through the essential factors to consider when purchasing vertical blinds. Here are some of the most important aspects to assess when selecting vertical shades or blinds:
Size and Coverage
Consider the coverage required for the type of windows you have. Vertical blinds work well for big windows or sliding doors because of their long upright louvers that can easily slide out of the way when not in use. They provide excellent coverage while taking up minimal space when open for a clearer view. So if you have an extra wide window or door, they are a fantastic choice!
Opacity and Light Control
The amount of light control and privacy you need depends on the room. If you want to darken a bedroom, choose blinds that are opaque and that can block light, such as a PVC or wood material. If you are dressing a living room and want to keep it bright and airy, you can get fabric vertical window blinds that are excellent for allowing natural light to permeate your room, even when it is closed.
Type of Material
Each material has its own pros and cons. PVC tends to be affordable, easy to clean, and moisture resistant. Wood brings a beautiful warmth to your decor with natural grain, but can warp over time in high humidity areas. Fabric tends to be softer and more lightweight, but is elegant and available in different textures, patterns, and opacities, from light filtering to room darkening.
Other Things to Consider
If you’re still on the fence, check out our list of pros and cons compiled by our expert designers to help determine if vertical blinds are the right fit for you.
If you're looking for something to let light in even when your window is covered, vertical blinds are a great choice. With long, upright vertical slats that hang from a track at the top of the window frame, they can be opened to allow light in or can be closed for privacy. You can change the angle of the adjustable slats to control how much light enters the room. The material used can also change the light filtering properties of your blind, for example using fabric materials to allow for some natural light even when the slats are tilted to close.
Since the slats are vertical, you can simply dust or wipe them down from top to bottom. You can even remove the slats for a deeper clean, or replace them if any are broken or scuffed over time. This makes them an ideal window covering solution for any home, office space, or any area that sees a lot of traffic.
They also tend to be inexpensive compared to other window treatments such as curtains, drapes, or shutters, making them a great affordable option for many homeowners.
Many people find the vertical louvers to have a distinct look that is unattractive or outdated. They can also be noisy when you operate them, as the louvers tend to clack together during movement. But it doesn't have to be! As an alternative you might want to take a look at different fabrics which can give them a sleek and modern look that isn’t noisy during operation.
Vertical blinds with a cord control can be a strangulation risk for homes with children and pets. Go for a cordless option such as a wand control that doesn’t have any dangling lift cords.
