Vertical Blinds vs Horizontal Blinds

When trying to re-think your room design there are various different types of window treatments to consider and one of these is blinds. However, there is the question of vertical blinds v horizontal. Both vertical and horizontal blinds have their advantages so it is wise to know the difference before you make your decision.

What Are Vertical Blinds?

Vertical blinds are window coverings made with slats of wood, vinyl (PVC), aluminium or fabric that hang vertically from a headrail. These are often known as vanes, slats, material, louvres and hangers. The slats can be adjusted to control light and privacy by rotating from an open position to a closed position or can be drawn back similar to curtains.

Vertical blinds are a great choice for families with children and pets because they are durable and easy-to-clean. They also insulate and darken rooms and the fabric ones are usually treated to ensure they are fire resistant. They can be either manually or electronically opened and shut.

What windows are vertical blinds most suited for?

Vertical blinds are usually more suited to covering larger windows, patio and sliding glass doors than horizontal blinds because they open from side to side. This therefore allows easier access to the sliding door or for opening a large window.

Verticals blinds also work well when there is little room at the sides of the window. The slats of verticals blinds draw back to compress tightly when opened, so they take up much less space than curtains. Depending on what design you have chosen, pulling the cord compresses the slats together either to one side or separates them in the middle and stacks them on each end.

The Joys of Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are very practical whether used in the home, factory or office. They tend to attract less dirt than horizontal blinds, are easy to clean as if necessary, the individual slats can be taken down to clean or to replace if damaged for any reason. Vertical blinds are less likely to be damaged in caught in a wind than horizontal blinds and are easy to use and the mechanics are less likely to break down. Vertical blinds also offer insulation qualities when drawn thus helping to keep the room warm. Conversely, when it is hot they can help to keep the room call when shut. The slats overlap closely and when shut they create an insulating pocket between the window and the room.

Bright sun fades furniture and therefore the vertical blinds can be angled to keep out the sun thus protecting the furniture and to help keep the room cooler and can help to discourage flies and other insects from entering the house.

You can buy vertical blinds to match any décor or decorating style and because they can be made to measure but still be reasonable cost wise. As they can be made to measure they are suitable for most window shapes unlike horizontal blinds.
