Controlling Light with Vertical Blinds


Blinds have now become a standard window covering in most modern UK homes. For many people, finding and hanging curtains which fit the window space well, and fit the design themes of the home can often present a real challenge practically and financially. While curtain poles are relatively easy to install, and prevent the need to thread many curtain hooks, the fittings which hold the poles often sit just that little bit too far out from the window frame. This can allow a little too much light into the room. Although this isn’t a great problem in the winter months when the nights evenings and mornings are particularly dark, in the summer months when this situation is reversed it can lead to disturbed sleep in the early morning. In many cases thicker net curtains or perhaps a blackout roller blind behind the main curtains are needed.


Roller blinds on their own can work very well at shutting out light when it’s not needed, but the fact that they are essentially one block of material that covers an increasing portion of the whole window the more they are pulled down means that getting complete control of the light into the room is not really possible. A similar situation can arise with roman blinds, with the added complication of them being a little unwieldy e.g. when they’re older or if there’s any tangling in the draw.

Horizontal blinds provide a much greater level of control of light. This is because the don’t simply block out large parts of the window from the top down, but the precise angling of the horizontal slats allows a more uniform pattern of light into the room, and a more uniform view out of the window. With horizontal blinds however, there is often some seepage of light through the sides of the windows if the blind is not the exact size needed, or of it sits too far out from the window frame.

Vertical blinds offer a much better solution for precise light control. In the closed position, the slats form a solid barrier across the glass, with the added bonus of looking particularly neat and tidy. The vertical blind slats can be angled at very small degrees toward the room, allowing and channelling just the required quantity of light in. Draws can be fitted and operated from either side to take account of the limitations of the window space or personal preference. Made to measure vertical blinds can be made to precisely fit the window space thus giving ultimate control over light aesthetic appeal.
