Why Choose Vertical Blinds?

Vertical blindsVertical blinds are made up of individual louvres or slats which fit onto a sliding track at the top, and are stabilised by weights or chains at the foot of the blind. Characterised by the fact that each slat hangs vertically, these blinds, like many others, are operated using a chain and cord which can be adjusted to control the light which enters a room. Vertical blinds are available in a wide variety of fabrics and colours to suit all tastes and budgets.

In this article, the team at Boyd’s Blinds will be explaining just why you need vertical blinds in your home or office.

Patio doors and bay windows

While the style of blind you opt for often comes down to taste, sometimes we are pushed in the direction of a certain style due to the nature of the windows we are looking to treat. For example, given the sheer size of patio doors, if we wish to treat them with blinds, then vertical blinds seem like the obvious choice since such doors couldn’t accommodate any other style.

Similarly, curved and square bay windows are also the perfect partner for vertical blinds, given that the vertical slats can negotiate curves and kinks in the window without any problem at all. Vertical blinds are also great for split drop windows, too, because the slats can be cut to different lengths to perfectly fit the pitch of your window.

Practical fabrics and finishes

There are numerous reasons to choose vertical blinds, however, the sheer number of fabrics available is an excellent one. Whether you would like standard high quality fabrics, blackout options, easy-wipe, moisture resistant or flame retardant styles, they can all be found in vertical blinds. Ultimately, this makes vertical blinds a safe and versatile option great for all kinds of rooms.

However, vertical blinds aren’t simply practical, they come in a variety of colours and prints and are a stylish addition to any home. Whether you want to spice up your neutral colour scheme with a textured fabric or add a pop of vibrant colour to make your blinds a feature, vertical blinds can achieve this.

Sleek and professional

Vertical blinds offer a stylish and understated aesthetic to any room, which is why this style of blind is so popular in professional environments. Their sleek appearance is the perfect match for greys and navy blues and can strike a formal mood if necessary. What’s more, vertical blinds can cover large office windows with ease, helping control the light in bright, open boardrooms.
