HORIZONTAL BLINDS OR VERTICAL BLINDS?
The decision to use either horizontal blinds or vertical blinds has a lot to do with the window architecture, size and shape and also what you want to accomplish with your window treatments. Tall narrow windows often look great with sleek vertical blinds. They tend to make the windows look taller and they can cover an arch at the top too. For larger windows and sliding glass doors, vertical blinds also make the best choice. Smaller windows and wider windows look nicer with horizontal blinds. And, if your home is like most homes in South Florida, you may have a room that needs both horizontal and vertical blinds. For rooms like these, we have compatible material for both vertical and horizontal blinds.;
NEUTRAL COLOR OR BOLD AND BRIGHT?
When it comes time to choose a material for your blinds, you need to determine what your interior design goals are and what they may be in the future. If you desire a lot of color in your room and want colorful window treatments, you can choose metal blinds or fabric blinds in a beautiful color or pattern material. Many times, choosing a neutral color blind can give you more options for now and later. You can choose to layer wood blinds with a colorful drape or valance that will give you the style you desire for now. It is much easier to replace your custom drapery than replace wood blinds when you are ready to change the color scheme of your room.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT MATERIAL?
Besides color, you also need to consider what you want your blinds to look like and the texture you desire. For contemporary rooms, retro metal blinds are becoming more and more popular. Today’s horizontal blinds are designed to wear well and are one of the easiest window treatments to care for. Wood blinds or faux wood blinds are another common solutions for contemporary homes. We also have our Natural Elements™ blinds offering metal slats with real wood headrail, tassels, and tilt wand. By themselves or with custom drapery, blinds are a natural go-to for window treatments. For more elegant areas, like living rooms or master bedrooms, vertical blinds come with a softer more dramatic look. You can choose from products like our Skyline® Gliding window panels or Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds that mimic soft drapery.
