The Art of Vertical Blinds: Your How To Guide

The Art of Vertical Blinds: Your How To Guide

Vertical Blinds not only traverse horizontally, making them easier to operate on large doors or windows, but they're also stylish, versatile and practical. Vertical Blinds offer a whole host of great features with strong contemporary looks and easy operation.

Simplistic operating solution

This sleek window blind is designed with vanes (sometimes called louvres or slats), that can be precisely rotated or traversed to subtly adjust the light or add extra privacy. You can also pull the vanes back in a neat stack to reveal your view and let in natural light when you want it. This versatile design lets you move your blinds from the left, right or centre to any position you want.

Modern Material Choices

As for design, you’ll be spoilt for choice with a range of exclusive fabric styles to create the perfect look and mood for your home. Stunning sheers and luxurious structures to stylish room darkening fabrics for the home office, bedroom or media room, are just a few of the options available.

Sustainable Fabric Options

If sustainability is important to your family, our fabric range helps you make a responsible choice for your home. The selection includes over fifty sustainable fabrics that are Cradle to Cradle Certified™ at bronze level. And our GreenScreen® Sea-Tex® NXT, is the world’s first window treatment fabric made from 50% recycled ocean plastic. Good for your home and the environment.

On Trend Colours

The right colour can transform the look and feel of any room. Choose from contemporary pastels to classic neutrals or eye-catching tones to find the perfect look for your home. You can also personalise your Vertical Blind by combining a plain and patterned fabric in the same blind, or adding a designer-coloured headrail in black, white, brown or aluminium.
