Horizontal vs. Vertical Blinds

You’ve already made one important decision for your home: you have decided that you want blinds for your windows. While it may not seem like it, that is a tough decision to come to, especially since Hunter Douglas offers so many different varieties of window treatments. But now you find yourself at another crossroads: should you get vertical or horizontal blinds? While they are incredibly similar, both styles have their own benefits, so let the window treatment professionals at Blinds & Us in Seneca, South Carolina explain them to you.

Horizontal Blinds

Horizontal blinds are the vanilla ice cream of the window treatment world. Versatile, easy to use, and applicable to almost every style of décor, horizontal blinds are an excellent choice for practically any homeowner. From Hunter Douglas, you also have a wide variety of different materials, finishes, and colors to make your blinds as personal as the rest of your home. You can get authentic wood blinds from the Parkland® collection, gorgeous alternative wood blinds from the EverWood® collection, as well as a variety of aluminum blinds, so you can be sure to find a set to suit your home’s needs.

Vertical Blinds

If horizontal blinds aren’t to your taste, Hunter Douglas also offers vertical blinds. Rather than being made out of horizontal slats, vertical blinds hang top-to-bottom, and then you can either adjust the angle of the vanes of your blinds, or push them aside. This makes vertical blinds a great choice for larger windows, as well as for sliding glass doors, as they can be pushed aside, allowing you to open your glass door unobstructed. Also, if you are aiming for a softer, more romantic touch for your home, vertical blinds are also a great choice, as most of them come in fabric or vinyl, which lends a softer tone to your space than wood.
