Benefits of Choosing Vertical Blinds
At JustBlinds, our goal is to make window treatment shopping as easy as possible. Our Buying Guides for Blinds is a great place to start! Here are some advantages when choosing vertical blinds for your home:
- Durable: Vertical blinds are constructed from durable materials like PVC, faux wood, and fabric. PVC and faux wood are great choices in areas with lots of moisture, since they are resistant to warping and cracking.
- Coverage: Vertical blinds open horizontally, which make them a popular choice for covering sliding glass or patio doors. They’re also ideal for covering large windows that run floor-to-ceiling.
- Easy to Clean: Vertical blinds are one of the easiest window treatments to clean, PVC and faux wood vertical blinds can be occasionally wiped down with a damp cloth or dust remover to keep them clean.
Upgrades and Options
Vertical blinds have some options and upgrades available to enhance their look or function.
- Stack Placement: You can choose which side your vertical blinds stack on when opened: left, right, or both. Stack placement can impact your view, offering several options to maintain your view outside.
- Slats: Slat options on vertical blinds are available in smooth, textured, or S-shaped. Smooth slats offer a simple style, while textures can add a level of visual interest. S-shaped slats are a great choice to provide more light blockage, if light control is a priority.
Here are a few things to consider before purchasing vertical blinds:
- Vertical blinds have a track system with wide slats, which require more mounting depth; always read the measure and installation instructions carefully before committing to vertical blinds.
- Vertical blinds offer some light blocking functionality and privacy, but will not offer total light blockage.
- Vertical blinds are proportioned for large windows or doors and can look strange on smaller ones. If covering smaller windows in the same room, consider an alternative that still compliments the larger window blinds.
