The Advantages of Vertical Blinds

When it comes to choosing the perfect blind for your home or business, its important to weigh up the pros and cons of each type of blind in turn to find out which is the most suitable for your needs.

There are a range of different types of blinds available, all of which have a variety of benefits, so you can be sure that you’re choosing the best blind for your premises, purpose and budget.

Vertical blinds are a hugely popular and versatile type of blind, and are both attractive and practical. They have a host of other benefits too, which include the following, among others:

Attractive and affordable

Vertical blinds can add a great finishing touch to any living room or bedroom, whether they’re fitted with curtains to dress a window or not. This is because, not only do they hang elegantly like curtains, they’re also available in a wide choice of colours and materials, including fabric, wood, metal and uPVC, so there’s always a style and finish to suit your tastes.

Plus, because vertical blinds are one of the most affordable types of blinds, you dont have to compromise on style, and your vertical blinds will provide a neat and tidy finish to any room in your property.


Whether you need blinds for your living room or within your commercial premises, vertical blinds are a great solution. This makes them an extremely versatile choice, as not only are they a functional and attractive choice for living rooms and bedrooms in domestic premises, theyre also a superb choice for offices and other business premises too.

This is partly thanks to their suitability for almost all shapes and sizes of windows, including the floor to ceiling windows that are a feature of a number of office buildings. In fact, vertical blinds can really make a feature of any window, as well as providing a practical means of controlling and adjusting privacy and the amount of light entering a building. Plus, the louvres are available in a variety of widths, so you can customise your blinds to suit your needs.

Easy Maintenance

Blinds can cause a bit of an issue for many people when it comes to keeping them clean. While styles such as Venetian, wooden and bamboo can be kept clean by a simple flick of a duster, or gentle wipe with a damp cloth, other blinds including fabric blinds such as roller and Roman will need to be taken down completely before being washed.

As they can be made using a variety of materials, vertical blinds are easy to keep clean; fabric louvres can be removed and washed, and if the louvres are made from materials such as wood or uPVC, they can simply be wiped to keep them free from dust.

Simple to Replace

As with all items, your blinds are likely to need replacing from time to time. Whether that’s from use and age, general wear and tear, or because you’ve recently redecorated and your existing blinds no longer match the new decor, purchasing and fitting new blinds can sometimes be stressful. But vertical blinds are an exception.

Its possible to remove the individual louvres and replace them without having to remove or replace the whole tracking system, providing its in good condition, thereby making it easy to simply update your vertical blinds with new louvres whether you’re after a new look or simply want to replace a damaged louvre.

Simple Operation

Perhaps the most obvious advantage, but vertical blinds are extremely easy to use thanks to the pull cord. By using this device, you can tilt your blinds so that they’re completely open, completely closed, or in a position where they allow a small amount of light into your room while still ensuring your privacy. This makes them a versatile blind too you can position them in a way that suits your needs at any time.
