Are you convinced by verticals?
Vertical blinds are similar to venetian blinds but with adjustable vanes hanging vertically down from a headrail rather than stretching across the window. This makes them a popular choice for covering tall, expansive windows and patio doors.
The vertical strips come in different materials including soft fabric, easy-to-clean vinyl and rigid PVC. Colour options are more limited than other types of blind but we tend to find that where there’s a will, there’s a way!
One of the chief benefits of verticals is that the vanes can be angled differently throughout the day to eliminate glare without reducing the light level. Depending on your preference and budget, vertical blinds can be manually operated or motorised and operated via remote control, computer or even via virtual assistant – the wonders of technology!
There are several factors to think about before deciding on verticals. For example, some homeowners dislike the sound that some blinds can make in the wind. Your Carolina advisor can go through all of these options with you to ensure you are making the best decision for your needs.
