Comparing horizontal and vertical blinds for your home
One of the first things to consider when choosing blinds is whether you want vertical or horizontal blinds. Would you prefer to have a view when the blinds are closed? Or would you prefer more privacy? If you’re thinking of upgrading the blinds in your Prescott home or business, Made in the Shade offers a quick comparison between vertical and horizontal blinds to help you choose.
One of the best advantages to vertical blinds is their ease of access. To cover a sliding door, vertical blinds are really the only option that makes sense because they are meant to slide to one side.
- Vertical blinds are also perfect for long windows and places where you want a view but still want to be able to maintain privacy.
- Vertical blinds are now offered with so many design options that you are no longer limited by the traditional vertical blind. Newer styles also offer larger panels giving home and business owners even more decorative options.
- Horizontal blinds are perfect for both tall, narrow windows and smaller windows. They still remain the most popular choice and offer home and business owners the most options.
- Horizontal honeycomb blinds have a variety of options including stopping the blind at any height as well as a top-down or bottom-up style.
Other blind styles such as wood or aluminum blinds allow you to tilt the slats to allow you to see out while still controlling the amount of sunlight and privacy you have in your room. There are also other privacy features to choose from including room darkening.
Blinds come in a huge array of fabrics, materials and color choices for both vertical and horizontal styles.
