Choosing Horizontal or Vertical Blinds?

Blinds are a classic window treatment for any room throughout your home. Most can accommodate many different window sizes and shapes and are available in a range of materials and finishes so you can craft a style that is unique to your home. When deciding on blinds for your home, a good question to ask is will horizontal or vertical blinds be best? Both are great for light control, privacy and a contemporary look, but one orientation may be a better fit than the other for your windows. The experts at AAA Blind and Shade Factory can assist you in choosing the best option for your home.

If you have larger windows in your home or sliding glass doors, you may need to consider vertical blinds. This is because they traverse horizontally, making them easier to control for bigger window spaces. If you have large windows or areas of glass in your home, they can be a target area for heat entering into your home, especially in the summer months. Having a window treatment like vertical blinds for this area can help cut down on your energy costs. This window treatment is perfect for the large windows in your bedroom or sliding glass doors that lead to your backyard. Hunter Douglas vertical blinds have many features such as PermaTiltÒ, a single control that rotates the vanes and the fabric of your blinds. They also feature the traditional chain and chord system, which provides smooth operation.

Horizontal Blinds are a great option for more traditional window sizes, still being able to accommodate specialty shapes in your home or office. Operate them to control light entering your home and to give you the privacy you need. Hunter Douglas makes horizontal blinds available in an assortment of textures and materials, sizes, colors, and finishes. The slats vary in size to accommodate varying needs of control light. They are offered in many styles of alternative wood, real wood, and aluminum, so you can choose the aesthetic that best compliments your décor. In all, horizontal blinds have heights ranging from 6 to 126 inches, and widths ranging from 7 ¾ to 144 inches so you can craft them to match a wide range of window sizes. Hunter Douglas horizontal blinds will be perfect for the long window in your hallway and the wider window in your family room.
