What are Vertical Blinds? You
may have never heard of a vertical blind, but they’re a great option for your home windows. The word “blind” comes from the days when window coverings were made from cloth or other materials that would block light from entering a room. Vertical blinds are one type of blind, and there are also horizontal and roller blinds.
One thing about vertical blinds is that you probably won’t want to stand on them – not because they aren’t strong enough for your weight. But because these types of coverings aren’t designed to be walked on or cleaned with a vacuum cleaner! If you have young children at home. Then vertical blinds should be considered as a way to keep their little fingers out of harm’s way.
8 Benefits of Vertical Blinds
Here are five benefits of vertical blinds:
You can choose our top-down bottom-up model or a clear vision model where the slats stack vertically and stack to the side when you want to be able to see through your window.
Vertical blinds come in a variety of colors and textures that will complement any room’s decor, and because there is no fabric on the top and sides like there is with other window treatments, they’re great for rooms where light needs to enter freely.
3. Easy cleaning
These blinds reduce dust accumulation by allowing airflow past each slat. So it doesn’t get trapped between them as happens with horizontal blinds. They also allow for easy cleaning because you can move them up by pulling the cord at the bottom of each slat to open it.
Vertical blinds are great for keeping your home snug in the winter months because their stacked design reduces drafts. And they’re perfect for summertime too because they can be raised or lowered easily to allow cool breezes into any room. Without cooling down an entire area.
5. Noise reduction
If there’s a lot of noise outside your windows that keep you awake at night, vertical blinds can help prevent this problem by reducing echoing and blocking out traffic sounds whether you stack the slats vertically or just raise them to let light through.
These blinds are a great option for bedrooms and other rooms where you want to be able to enjoy privacy, and if you raise the slats vertically and stack them at the side by pushing in on the tab there, they can even provide partial privacy.
7. Easy installation
The bracket system used with vertical blinds makes it easy to install them yourself instead of having someone else do it because removing an existing window treatment just requires removing a few screws from each bracket.
8. Durable construction
These days there’s no reason that vertical blinds can’t last just as long or longer than their horizontal cousins, but regardless of how long these types of coverings last in your home you’ll like knowing that in addition to looking great, they also provide so many benefits.
You can now see why there are so many benefits of vertical blinds, but the best way to appreciate them is to have a set installed in your home. Contact a company like Curtains Express for more information and help to find the type of slat configuration that will work best for your windows.
