Vertical Shades: The Opposite of Boring
When you think of vertical shades, does your mind immediately go to the boring white shades that you had in your old apartment? “I’ll never have vertical blinds in my home!” you think.
But don’t dismiss vertical shades altogether!
These window treatments go way beyond your generic white blinds. With products like Vignette Traversed with Vertiglide®, Luminette® Privacy Sheers, or Crosswinds® Wood Vertical Blinds, you’re sure to find a vertical shade that not only looks good, but meets your needs.
Choose From a Wide Variety of Colors & Styles
The great thing about modern vertical shades is the wide variety of options you can choose from, which allows you to match the style of your home, be it modern or traditional. From woods to fabrics, you can easily avoid plain, boring vertical shades and choose one that fits your personality and lifestyle!
And who said vertical shades had to be made of individual blind slats that are reminiscent of an office building? Vertical shades come in a myriad of style and fabric options like:
- Honeycomb shades for energy efficiency.
- Privacy sheers that offer translucent or room-dimming options so you can control the level of light and privacy in your home.
- Draperies that give you the look and feel of traditional drapes.
- Gliding window panels for a sleek, clean urban look.
- Woven woods that filter light and provide a more natural look to your home.
Coordinate with Your Home & Other Shades
Your vertical shades can also add a new dynamic to your home. There are many colors and textures that cross over between the Silhouettes and Luminettes so rooms with both windows and sliding doors can mix the two products and coordinate beautifully. This is also true with the Duette and the Duette Vertigilide, as well as the Vignette and the Vignette Vertiglide.
The Averte Natural Fold is another beautiful vertical option for your home. It is a versatile option because it does not have to be fixed on one side of your window, but can slide in either direction. It can be paired with the Horizon Woven Wood horizontal shade.
