Vertical Blinds

Are you overwhelmed with trying to figure out what style of window covering would work best for you?  At Milton Blinds, we offer a selection of shutters, blinds, shades, and window film. To find the best custom window covering for you, you need to know the difference between these styles! Let me highlight the key differences:

Vertical Blinds

Blinds give you the ability to control the light by tilting the slats up and down with a pully system cord control or twirling motion of a wand control.  The horizontal position allows you to manipulate how much light comes into the room and how much privacy you have. When completely opened and lifted they are stacked at the top of your window. This is a great product for rooms that experience a range of light throughout the day.  This product comes in faux wood, which is a combination of engineered material and real wood for a reliable and durable product.

Shades differ from blinds, as they are a fabric window covering and have no slats. However, there are a large selection of colours, textures, patterns, and opaqueness to choose from.  The degrees of light control can vary from more to less.  Do you want a soft light to diffuse through the room or blackout window treatment that blocks all sun light?  We have many operational options available including chain, cord, cordless, café style, and motorization. 

Shutters are classic, timeless, and enhance the look of any room.  Shutters are offered in different materials, colours, louvers sizes, and have several frame options to choose from.  Shutters are energy efficient and even add value to your home.  Shutters are cordless and look fantastic from both the inside and outside of your home.
