Vertical Blinds


Vertical blinds were first popular in the 1950s, but they didn’t stay there. These days there are highly modern, sophisticated vertical blind options in a huge range of colors and patterns. While you might think of these blinds as just patio door blinds, they are also popular for oversized windows or in spaces or rooms where you need more versatility when it comes to privacy and light. Discover why these blinds are so versatile and why they are popular blinds in Milton. Or if you just can’t wait and want to see how they look for yourself, you can contact us about getting an in-home consultation with one of our design experts for a professional, hands-on experience of what we have to offer.


 Types of Vertical Blinds

There are two types of vertical blinds that you should familiarize yourself with:

  • Traditional vertical blinds: These are what probably comes to mind for you when you think of vertical blinds. They have panels that hang from the top of the window or door down vertically. These panels can be turned to allow light or block it. They can also be drawn back or across.
  • Sliding panels: These are two or more large panels that are essentially like sliding doors that can be drawn back or forward. They cannot be turned to open and close the way that vertical blinds can be. However, they have a very different look that you may prefer.

Allowing Access

Vertical blinds are an excellent option for allowing access to glass doors, while also giving you the option to block them when you’d like to. As patio door blinds, vertical options can allow you to cover a nearby window while leaving the door free.


Better Light Control and Privacy

Vertical blinds offer you better control over light and privacy, by allowing you to fully cover some sections of the windows or doors while leaving others open. This is helpful in environments with oversized windows where leaving horizontal blinds open across the whole space wouldn’t provide enough privacy or light control. With vertical blinds, you can choose exactly which sections of the space to have open and closed.


Energy Efficiency

By protecting your space from light, vertical blinds help you remain more energy efficient in the summer. In the winter, you can let in the light and the heat it brings to help reduce the stress on your furnace.
