Vertical Blinds Milton

Here is a list of commonly asked questions when it comes to window coverings and verticals blinds.  Why choose vertical blinds, what windows or doors can vertical blinds be used for?  What are the pros and cons of verticals and more?  We hope you enjoy this read.

Are Vertical Blinds Still Popular?

Yes, they are because of their easy to use controls and versatility.  Vertical blinds can also be used for any window, door, even angle shaped window.

Why Choose Vertical Blinds for a Patio Door?

Vertical Blinds completely cover a patio door from side to side and top to bottom for maximum light control and privacy when desired.  You can also have drawn across and open or completely open for full view outdoors.

Why are Vertical Blinds a Common Rental Property Choice?

  • Easy to operate.
  • Simple to clean.
  • They offer blackout, room darkening and an uninterrupted view when in the fully open position.

Are Vertical Blinds Child Safe?

We do not recommend that you put any furniture or bedding near a window or window covering. Child safety mechanisms are available at no extra charge to secure the chain and cord operation into the window trim for an inside mount vertical blind, and to the wall for an outside mount vertical blind.

Can I Replace a Vertical Blind Vane only?

Yes, we can match up with your existing blinds and order you the part you need. We can supply you with one vertical vane or multiple.

How to Measure for a Vertical Blind?

At Milton Blinds, we do the measuring for you so there is no room for error, however if you are interested in taking measurements this is how you would do so:

Inside Mount Vertical Measuring:

  1. Measure inside the window trim and the top, middle and bottom. You need the blind to fit within the window trim, especially the tracking at the top.
  2. Measure the height from inside the trim to the bottom on the left side, center and right side. Go with the shortest height or to custom cut the vertical vanes on site go with the largest height.

Outside Mount Vertical Measuring:

  1. Measure the outside of the window trim at the top, middle and bottom. Use the larges width. Add a couple inches for the vertical vanes to cover the window opening completely.  The track will be the largest piece.
  2. Measure the height on the left side, centre and right side and go with the largest height. Add a couple inches for the brackets.

Know your supplier deductions so there is no miscommunication with the final measurements and blind or shade product.
