Large Windows & Patio Doors are Great Places for Vertical Blinds

1Large windows are usually a focal point of a home. Don’t hide the view with cumbersome window coverings. When open, vertical blinds reveal the entire window for a full view of the outdoors. When closed, they provide privacy and climate control. Many have the misconception that vertical blinds are boring. However, vertical blinds are some of the most versatile window coverings out there. Add a splash of color with bright hues. Bring nature indoors by opting for faux wood or go with smooth PVC blinds that subtly blend with the room to draw attention to the beauty of your french doors. Kathy Ireland Home by Alta is a great option for both faux and real wood blinds, especially if you wanted wood shutters but need a lower cost option. Or, check out Hunter Douglas blinds for energy-efficient options and the newest technology in motorized solutions.

2Kitchen and bathroom window coverings tend to need cleaning more than coverings in other rooms. Condensation and the grime that accumulates when cooking make vertical blinds a great option for these rooms. First, the vertical orientation of these blinds reduces the amount of dust that settles on them. Secondly, the smooth textures of faux wood and PVC make them easy to wipe clean, and resist moisture build-up that can lead to warping. Lastly, if sufficient soiling occurs, the slats can easily be detached for deep cleaning, repair or replacement.
