Dual Motion Capabilities
Blinds, both vertical blinds and horizontal blinds, can move in two separate ways for an unmatched range of light control. Their slatted construction style like shutters have individual vanes that can rotate side-to-side to control incoming sunlight and provide privacy. Additionally, vertical blinds can move as an entire unit easily traversing to the side for unobstructed views and full sunlight. The dual motion capabilities ensure that no matter what lighting needs arise, vertical blinds can be responsive and adaptive.
Vertical blinds can help to control the entire environment in a room with features that affect multiple environmental factors such as light and sound. Select styles of vertical blinds, in addition to light-control, are designed to help quiet rooms for a more peaceful acoustic ambience. Advanced textiles and finishing treatments for vanes on vertical blinds can absorb sound waves while the curved shape of certain vane styles deflects sound waves for better indoor acoustics.
Modern vertical blinds can be fabricated from a wide range of materials with both hard and soft aesthetics. Fabric options for vertical blinds include a diverse palette of colors, prints and textures; vinyl materials provide enhanced, long-lasting constructions; and light-catching metals provides eye-catching choices with ultra-high durability.
The Bigger the Better
Vertical blinds are designed to work over wide windows or sliding glass doors. Their operating systems make maneuvering the large window coverings easy while maintaining smooth, reliable side-to-side motion. This feature is especially valuable on blinds for sliding glass doors or patio door blinds if the homeowner’s consistent need to access the underlying entryway results in heavy use of the blinds.
Vertical blinds are useful window treatments for a variety of applications. They can be used for residential design in houses or apartments, office spaces, retail locations and many types of commercial properties. They make excellent blinds for sliding glass doors, patio door blinds, or entryway treatments. And when used on windows, vertical blinds can be customized for treatments as narrow as 9 inches or as wide as nearly 25 feet for use on most any size of residential or commercial window. Vertical blinds can also be used in multiple ways within a single room. In addition to acting as window or door covers, select styles of vertical blinds can also be fashioned into room dividers for a truly multi-functional treatment.
The beauty of glass in homes, be that sliding glass doors or windows, is the natural beauty it provides. Whether that’s warming natural sunlight coming in or an exquisite view out, glass doors and windows connect our home with the beauty of the world around it. And it would almost feel like a shame to cover that beauty, save for the need for privacy and light control in a household and the desire to improve energy efficiency. Luckily, vertical blinds allow homeowners to keep part of that natural beauty intact with dual-motion capabilities. The multi-dimensional movements of vertical blinds allow for a varied interaction with natural sunlight from blocking it completely to allowing it all in as well as the ability to slide open completely with minimal stack-back to maximize the view. Homeowners can balance their desire for natural beauty with other household needs like privacy and easily adjust their vertical shades to suit a range of situations.
