Vertical blinds are often considered old fashioned and only suitable for offices or residential homes. This however is definitely not the case.
They are basically Roller blinds reimagined as they use the same fabric.
Available with 89mm and 129mm slats they provide fantastic control over light and privacy by simply changing the angle of the slats.
As a result they are a cost effective, one blind solution for your windows and doors.
Vertical blinds have been simplified and modernised in recent years, replacing the fiddly chain and cord mechanism with an easy to use control wand. Thus making them child safe.
The slats are also no longer joined together with the dated plastic chain at the bottom, providing a much more contemporary look.
The fabrics are available from sheer to blackout in lots of textures, colours, patterns and plains.
The blinds can also be motorised.
Whilst looking great on their own, Vertical blinds also make a perfect accompaniment to curtains.
Its all in the design!
Soft Furnishing Design specialise in motorisation and concealment. All of our pleated blinds can be operated by either mains or battery power and can be controlled by a wall switch, a remote control, your home AV system or home hub via an app on your phone or simply by saying “hey Alexa, close the blinds”.
If we are able to consult on a project early your dedicated designer will work with your architect, interior designer and contractors. Advising on window design to prevent gaps and reduce light bleed where the blinds meet, and providing product details along with wiring diagrams that can be incorporated in to the design.
These options certainly generate the wow factor but need to be incorporated in to the design at an early stage.
