Vertical blinds


Vertical blinds

Sliding glass doors, patio doors, and oversized windows are great sources of natural light but it can be difficult to find window treatments for them. The professionals at Richmond Decorating are here to show you why vertical blinds are a game changer for those tricky-to-cover expanses of glass.

Advantages of vertical blinds

Vertical blinds are a fantastic alternative to curtains. While curtains offer an all-or-nothing solution when it comes to privacy and light control, the vanes of these blinds can be tilted up to 180 degrees to provide you with your ideal amount of privacy and sunlight. This also means you have greater flexibility when it comes to protecting your home’s interior from damaging UV rays.

Fuctional home décor in Richmond, Virginia is all about subtle style and easy operation. You can cover larger areas with vertical blinds without having to worry about the weight of your window treatments. Since these blinds open horizontally, they can be much heavier than their vertical counterparts and still be a breeze to open and close. You can open your blinds partially to allow for easy passage from inside to the outdoors without giving any nosy neighbors a view into your home.

Did we mention the simplicity of maintenance offered by vertical blinds? You can wipe the vanes with a damp cloth or use a vacuum hose attachment on low suction to remove dust and other debris. Remember to also remove dust from the headrail to avoid issues with opening and closing. If a vane becomes damaged, you can replace that individual vane rather than the entire set, as is the case with other window coverings.

Vertical blinds for sliding doors and windows are an extremely versatile choice. The myriad of color and material options available means you’ll never have trouble finding ones that suit your taste and existing decor. Vanes that are too narrow or too wide can look awkward and out of place if they do not complement the size of the window. The vanes of vertical blinds from Hunter Douglas come widths that are practical for any size application.
