When it comes to choosing blinds such as vertical blinds for your home, it’s a given that you want the basic functions of regulating sunlight and providing privacy, but there are actually so many more benefits to the perfect window treatments than just those fundamentals. At Craftsman, we know that selecting the right blinds is a great way to enhance a room’s décor and add value to your home. But which style to choose? Check out vertical blinds!
Vertical blinds differ from other types in that they have louvers, or slats, that run vertically down from a track. The slats can be pulled entirely open to one side, or turned in a 180-degree range. This not only allows for more versatility regarding the amount of natural light beaming in, but also provides more control in terms of privacy. Close them completely to cool down the house and protect your rugs and furniture from the afternoon sun, open the slats partway for a more moderate amount of light, or pull the blinds back completely to enjoy the view. By going vertical in no way are you sacrificing style. There is a wide range of materials to choose from, including fabric, wood and vinyl, and hundreds of color and pattern options so you can really get creative.
The vertical slats are often a better option than traditional horizontal blinds for sliding doors, oversized windows or challenging spaces in your home because the individual louvers can be cut to size for a perfect fit every time. Also, there is no dangling cord, which can be a big plus for people with young children or pets. Instead, a wand is used to pull the slats open or closed, or twisted to adjust rotation. Looking to create a soft, airy feel in your living room? Try a light-colored fabric blind. Or maybe you need a good option for a bedroom? Why not add an elegant wooden blind or PVC blackout blind for extra privacy?
Vertical blinds can be a fabulous choice for any room of your home, but are especially stand-out in rooms where you want the impression of higher ceilings and spaciousness, like dens or home offices, or areas of the home with large bay or picture windows where you want to be able to fully appreciate the view outdoors and take advantage of the natural light. If you have a glass sliding door out to your patio or garden, vertical blinds are the perfect choice.
With all the options out there, choosing window treatments for your home might seem overwhelming, but Craftsman has you covered.
