What are vertical blinds?
Also known as Californian blinds, vertical blinds are a staple of modern-day interiors. Long used in professional environments, especially office spaces, they are now becoming increasingly widespread in private homes. With their resolutely clean aesthetics, they are an elegant solution to dress a window that will add a contemporary touch to any interior.
Due to the width of headrails, vertical blinds can be used to cover up larger glazed surfaces: picture windows, conservatories, arched windows or even trapeze windows. Rotating 180 degrees, the overlapping slats let you modulate with precision the amount of natural light inside a room (filtering it or blocking it out entirely) and reduce heat gain, while shielding you from unwanted eyes.
Californian blinds are very easy to use. They can be opened and closed manually, by pulling a weighted drawstring, or operated automatically with a remote control.
How do I choose my vertical blinds?
The first element to consider when choosing vertical blinds is the dimensions of the windows for which they are intended. Then, you’ll need to select the right fabric, as that will determine performance in terms of natural light filtration and thermal insulation.
For a living room or dining room, pick a sheer screen, which will provide maximum natural light. For a conservatory or if your room faces south, you might prefer a shading or heat-blocking fabric to keep the room cool and diffuse light rather than obstruct it completely. And for a bedroom, a blackout fabric is a great choice that will allow you to spend your nights in complete darkness!
