You’re in the market for new window treatments but can’t decide between vertical or horizontal shades for the windows and their different applications in your home. What do you do?
Why not choose both?
Pairing vertical and horizontal shades together in your home creates a beautiful aesthetic while meeting the different needs of your windows.
Keep A Consistent Look Throughout Your Home
Different rooms in your home serve different purposes and will often have windows of varying sizes and shapes and the same shade won’t work for all. For example, patio doors or large windows may benefit more from vertical shades, while smaller windows usually look better with horizontal shades. Combining horizontal and vertical shades in a room will help keep a consistent look across applications.
You don’t have to worry about not finding horizontal and vertical shades that match each other. Many of the window treatments Victor Shade offers come in both horizontal and vertical options so you can coordinate to your heart’s desire:
- Duette® Honeycomb Shades comes in a wide variety of colors, fabrics, and pleat sizes that you can pair with its vertical cousin, the Duette® Vertiglide, or even just another vertical shade of your choosing! The Duette® and the Duette® Vertiglide offer the most room darkening options on the market, making them perfect for rooms that need privacy. However, semi-translucent and sheer options are also available, which makes this product very versatile.
- Vignette® Traversed Shades combine the beauty of horizontal Roman shades with the convenience of vertical shades when used on expansive windows or doors. They pair with the horizontal Vignette® Modern Roman Shade to create a soft fabric look throughout your room or home.
- Luminette® Privacy Sheers and Silhouette® Window Shadings pair beautifully together. A variety of fabrics and colors are offered in both products to provide a seamless, elegant look. Each product operates similar to a traditional blind, opening and closing as well as tilting open to let light in. However, they have a soft mesh in front of the louvers to gently diffuse the light.
Create A Modern Look
Of course, there are no rules stating that your home window treatments have to match. What matters is what works for you! If you find that you like the look two different shades brings, go for it! Personalizing your home is the best part of owning a house, so feel free to mix and match to your heart’s desire to give your home a fun, modern look.
Don’t be afraid of getting out there and trying something new with your home’s windows. You will be surprised at how well vertical and horizontal shades fit together! If you are unsure where to start, consulting with a professional will help you get started. They will come into your home with samples so you can get an idea of what your chosen treatments will look like.
