Are Vertical Blinds Outdated or Still in Style

You probably walked into many homes in the ‘80s and ’90s that had vertical blinds. It seems like they were a much more popular window covering option back then. But, does that mean that you’re committing an interior design faux pas when you install them now? Or, are quality vertical blinds timeless, totally acceptable, and stylish in modern homes, specifically here in Milton? If you want to test this out firsthand or speak with an expert in person, you can contact us to set up an in-home consultation with one of our design professionals. If you’re wanting to do a little more research, here’s a quick discussion that can help you get a better idea of what would work for you.

Are Vertical Blinds Out of Style in 2023?

No, when done well, vertical blinds are not out of style in 2023. There are two ways to use these blinds and make them work in your space.

First, you can choose more modern versions of these blinds which work with more modern interiors. That includes choosing wider louvres with muted colors or modern fabrics. You can see what works in your space with your in-home consult.

Second, the other option is to lean into the ‘80s ambiance. The styles from the 1980s are making a comeback in 2023 and if you are into the look, choosing a more vintage vertical blind style can add a lot to your interior. Above all else, it’s about what you want for your space and doing it with clear intention.

Take a Look Online

Not convinced that vertical blinds really can work in 2023? Sometimes when you’ve only seen a window dressing in one kind of room, you think that’s really the only way to style it. Take a look online for images of vertical blinds used in all sorts of décor styles. There are many to look at, and you might find a few that spark your fancy. Be sure that you’re looking at all of the options vertical blinds have to offer, from stark black or other intense colors to real wood, fabric, or vinyl options. Look at vertical blinds that cross back windows as well as those that cover patio doors.

Why Choose a Vertical Blind?

It shouldn’t feel like a compromise to choose a vertical blind. They offer a ton of benefits for homeowners, including:

  • Maintenance: Vertical blinds don’t collect the same amount of dust that horizontal blinds do. They are also much easier to clean.
  • Access: Vertical blinds allow you to cover doors without compromising their functionality.
