The Advantages of Vertical Blinds

As a window dressing which was once only ever associated with schools, offices and GP surgeries, vertical blinds have since become a stylish and contemporary addition to any home. Coming in a range of different colours and fabrics, a homeowner would be spoilt for choice if they decided to dress their windows with these modern blinds. As well as variety, vertical blinds come with many other advantages. We have presented you with just a few of them.

Light and Privacy Control

If privacy is a matter of importance to you, then vertical blinds would be ideal. You’re able to fully control how much of the outside world you’d like to let in, which subsequently allows you to control the light which streams in. This is all done smoothly with the help of our high-quality mechanisms, allowing for easy operation.

However, when the blinds are fully closed on a sunny day, a warm haze is created, ensuring that your room, especially during a bright summer’s day, is never plunged into complete darkness. This is perfect for those who would still prefer a small amount of light to radiate the room, but are still able to achieve absolute privacy when required.


Easy to Clean

These stylish blinds are a dream to clean, should this be a concern. In comparison to Roman blinds, for example, these are easy to take down, dust off and then hang up again in no time at all. With vertical blinds being so low maintenance, they’ve become a popular choice, no only in commercial settings, but domestic ones, too.


How to clean vertical blinds

For a quick clean, run a damp cloth down each slat and leave them to air dry. Then, dust down the railing mechanism which sits overhead.



Vertical blinds are available in many different colours and are often made-to-measure. These tailor-made, stylish blinds are incredibly versatile when it comes to use throughout, not only your home, but commercial properties, too. From brilliant whites to earthy greens, we’ll have a shade that will perfectly suit your needs and your home.  



Vertical blinds aren’t just for dental surgeries and hospital waiting rooms. These tailor-made blinds can add a contemporary edge to any home. From floor to ceiling blinds to ones that can be fitted to an average window, no job is too big or small for our experts. All of our blinds are fitted with the utmost skill and precision, so you can rest assured that your blinds will hang perfectly.



The slats are made out of incredibly durable material. This ensures that they can withstand both continuous usage and considerable amounts of time in direct sunlight. It also makes deep cleaning the slats an absolute breeze.
