Why Vertical Blinds?
Vertical blinds are a very versatile window treatment. No longer are vertical blinds limited to office spaces and functional buildings, they have significantly gained popularity in open space homes. As a part of non-traditional and modern décor, they bring a sleeker, more minimalistic look to the place.
Due to their light control features, these blinds are considered the perfect addition to rooms that have large sliding doors leading to the patio or deck as well as large, floor to ceiling sized windows.
The back and forth movement and the inward and outward rotation of the slats allow homeowners to reduce the amount of light entering the room, all the while, increasing their privacy, making these blinds the perfect choice for bedrooms, conservatory (greenhouse) or the living room.
The light control function also makes these vertical blinds eco-friendly. They allow the maximised use of natural light in homes and workplaces, thus largely reducing the need for artificial lighting.
Vertical Blinds Care and Maintenance
Vertical blinds are hang in the vertical direction, they hardly collect any dust or dirt. Therefore, they are far easier and simpler to care for.
Fabrics vanes or slats, on the other hand, will need to be washed at regular intervals to remove dust. While they can easily be laundered at home, they should never be spin-dried, folded or crushed. Instead, opt to lightly towel dry them to remove the excess moisture and then directly re-hang them and allow to air dry.
The maintenance of broken vertical blinds, however, is another story altogether. Due to the trickier track and movement mechanisms of the blinds, their repair and replacement are not only time-consuming, but it is also a painstaking job that needs complete precision to be done correctly.
For vinyl or faux wood vertical blinds, a soft piece of cloth, and some soapy water with a mild detergent are more than enough to clean these blinds.
Sometimes vertical blinds require additional vacuuming to ensure that the blinds movement track is properly cleaned. Accumulation of dust within the track can hinder in proper movement of the blinds themselves leading to possibly damage, which is something you really want to avoid.
Custom Vs Ready Made Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds are most commonly used for windows and glass doors of unusual heights and widths. These windows and doors are often classified as hard-to-fit mainly due to their unique designs and sizes, as such, ready-made blinds are rarely an option for homeowners interested in getting vertical blinds. Therefore, the custom made professionally installed route to window coverings is far more sensible.
With a custom job, not only do homeowners get to choose from a wider selection of materials, textures, colours and styles but they also get tailored made, form fitting vertical blinds that sit perfectly on your windows.
