Vertical blinds - much more than just 'office' blinds!by Neil Myatt on 10/01/10
A common misconception of vertical blinds are that they are only suited for commercial settings. I've lost count of the number of people who, when discussing vertical blinds, have said me to 'I dont want my lounge looking like an office!'
As I often reply to such comments, at UK Blinds Direct we have a huge selection of beautiful vertical fabrics, that would never be seen in a commercial installation. We have stunning colours, patterns and prints, and our vertical range really can bring a touch of style and sophistical even to the most contemporary of houses/apartments.
Of course, vertical blinds also hold distinct advantages over other traditional blind styles:
- They dont collect dust and dirt like wooden and aluminium venetians
- They are more versitile that rollers and romans as they can be tilted to allow varying levels of light and privacy
- They are more cost-effective when ordering for multiple rooms
- There is a greater selection of styles, colours and patterns than other blinds
So for those who are quick to rule out vertical blinds, why not give them a chance - you may be suprised!
