Vertical Blinds vs. Horizontal Blinds

This entry was posted on 22nd September 2010

When shopping for your window blinds, do you often wonder to choose Vertical blinds or horizontal (Venetian) blinds? The secret behind the answer to this dilemma is to find out your windows dimensions, the mechanism that opens and closes your windows, and your room's decoration style. The first thing to consider is the dimensions of your windows. If your windows are taller than they are wide and you operate your windows by raising and lowering them, then consider horizontal window blinds, such as our Controliss motorised venetian blinds or our motorised roller blinds. These fashionable window coverings will enhance your windows while making it cosy and relaxed. However, if your windows are tall and slides from side to side, you might want to consider using vertical blinds. The vertical slats will add height to your room and bring an air of formality and dignified beauty to your room. Aside from the windows’ mechanism and dimensions, you must also consider what your decorating style is. If your room is more modern or contemporary, the sleek lines of window blinds will create a unified look to your over-all design. What matters is to find the right fabric and texture that will merge with your decorative style. For example, if your room exudes a country charm, our Controliss wooden blinds will be a perfect match. Our suede vertical blinds will be right at home in a sophisticated room because of the opulent fabric. Deciding between vertical blinds or horizontal blinds is as easy as pie when you think about these three elements: dimension, operating mechanism, and style. Keep this in mind as you browse through our ranges.
