Roller Blinds vs Vertical Blinds


Different areas of the home, different personal knowledge, experiences, and preferences, and different features and benefits are some of the influences which play a part in the decisions of which blinds to choose. Each type of blind has its own merits in different situations. Ultimately all blinds have a similar set of purposes in common. These include the basic controlling of light in the room, helping to maintain a level of privacy, and integrating with the overall design theme of the room.

Roller Blinds

Like vertical blinds, the roller blinds can be inside or outside the window recess. The roller blind model essentially consists of a central horizontal tube around which is rolled a length of flexible material, joined at one end to the central tube and weighted / held in shape at the other end with a solid horizontal strip enclosed within the material of the blind.


Operating the roller blind essentially means lowering or rolling the blind downwards. The more the blind descends the more of the window is obscured from view from the top down. For a living room window this many not be a particularly good idea as plenty of light needs to be let into the room during the daylight hours and levels of privacy need to be maintained. Where roller blinds tend to be more appropriate is in the rooms which require high levels of privacy, and where the window isn’t relied upon as the main source of light for much of the day e.g. a bathroom, a toilet or a bedroom. Roller blinds can also be used in conjunction with other window coverings e.g. curtains. Roller blinds are available in a wide range of colours and patterns, so can be adaptable. They are also widely available in standard formats and colours e.g. in large DIY stores.

Vertical Blinds

The vertical blind model involves a horizontal top unit which is attached above the window below which vertical blind slats / louvres / vanes hang down. A wand at the side of the blinds allows the slats to be angled through 180 degrees so that they can be totally open or closed, or angles anywhere in between. Vertical blinds are a completely flexible option because they offer the perfect levels of light control and privacy – these are totally adjustable. Vertical blind slats are available in wide range of colours and finishes and are generally easy to clean. They can be removed individually from the main structure with relative ease so they can be cleaned or replaced if necessary. Some vertical blind slats cost less than £1 each to replace. This makes vertical blinds an extremely flexible option e.g. if you want to change the colour scheme and design of your room regularly but don’t want to keep buying and fitting new blinds. The time between order and delivery of vertical blinds can be surprisingly quick and the results can be stunning.
