Vertical Blinds – still a popular and practical option for your home
Vertical blinds still remain one of the most popular yet practical blind solutions in the home. They offer the ultimate in style and function with the utmost practicality too, giving you an all-round excellent blind for your windows, regardless of which room you may need them for.
Many modern properties and new builds now have large areas of glass (i.e bi-folding doors, patio/French doors, large windows etc.) that are not only visually pleasing to look at but they also encourage the flow of natural light; cleverly creating the illusion of more space.
However, although there are many benefits to having glass in the home, they all need sufficient coverage in order to block out unwanted light and offer privacy in your home when it is needed – something that is essential if your property is overlooked.
Boring or practical?
When it comes to dressing your windows, vertical blinds can sometimes be viewed as a boring style choice, but realistically they are one of the most popular blind styles that effortlessly combines practicality with aesthetics, as there are now a range of different designs, colours and fabrics to chose from, so you can find something to complement your room regardless of its current colour scheme or interior design style.
Clean lines & light filtration
Unlike curtains, vertical blinds allow you to retain the clean lines of your window or patio doors, with the option to filter the light into the room rather than blocking it all out completely.
Retracted or fully closed
Vertical blinds are rather versatile in the fact that they can be fully retracted back to the side, allowing light to completely fill the room, or entirely closed completely blocking all light out. In addition to this, they can also be tilted so the slats are angled, allowing light to filter in but also keeping your room private and shielded from passer-bys.
The sun’s damaging UV rays can penetrate through the glass and potentially damage your furniture. However, with vertical blinds you can save the time and cost of having to replace or recover your damaged furniture, as they will completely block out the sun. This will help keep your room much cooler during the summer months too.
With a wide range of fabrics now available, you can tailor your blinds to beautifully complement your room’s surrounds. Stitchbond fabrics are the most popular design as they are low cost yet durable, but there are various other styles to choose from, including print effects for a statement piece, weave styles for a textured look or perhaps a colourful design to spruce up a neutral room; take your pick!
After delving into the world of vertical blind it has become apparent that one thing’s for sure: they seamlessly combine elegance with style and practicality, for an overall ideal blind for your home.
