The versatility of vertical blinds
If your perception of vertical blinds is the is the swinging, clanging, aluminium version that was only used over sliding patio doors a couple decades ago, you’re in for a real treat when you see how far these incredibly versatile blinds have come!
Vertical Blinds Are For Every Room
Vertical blinds are no longer confined to the patio door or wall-to-wall conference room window. Today’s vertical blinds can be used on any type and size of window. Block out fabric makes for a cosy bedroom hideaway, while light-filtering fabrics that seamlessly cover a large expanse of windows in a living area can create a clean, simple and modern look. Vertical blinds can even be custom made to fit a sloping window along a staircase.
Vertical Blinds Are For Every Style
One of the most alluring aspects of vertical blinds is the nearly limitless selection of fabrics to choose from. Today’s vertical drapes are made of durable, high-quality, hypo-allergenic and fire retardant fabrics that come in an array of colours, patterns and textures to match any room’s décor. They can be further customised with a complementary insert fabric for the holding strip, or a fashionable pelmet that houses the upper hardware.
Even the width of each panel or slat can be customised based on the room and side of window being covered. In general, narrower panels look better over smaller windows, while wider panels complement large windows. You can choose from 63mm, 89mm, 100mm, or 127mm slat sizes.
Vertical Blinds Are Easy To Operate
Gone are the stiff plastics and metals that bent and broke if they weren’t turned just the right way when you tried to draw them. Today’s blinds glide effortlessly on a track, stacking neatly to the right, left, centre, or even split – however you choose to configure them.
You can choose between three different styles of weights at the bottom of the blinds to keep them neatly in place: traditional weights and chains, which are best at keeping the blinds in place, but are not recommended in homes with pets and small children; special weights, which are inserted into slits at the bottom of each panel; and sewn in weights, which are completely enclosed at the bottom of the panel.
You can choose from cord, chain or wand operation based on your preference and need for child safety.
