In the world of stylish window dressing, vertical window blinds tend to get a bad rep. For many designers and décor-savvy homeowners, they’re the colorless, utilitarian blinds you see in office windows, not a design statement for a living room. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and in the hands of the expert window treatment designer. We’re here to tell you that vertical blinds can make a great statement in your home. Here are 3 places vertical window blinds prove themselves to be a stylish and beautiful window treatment option.
The Private Library
Vertical window blinds make a stylish and regal choice for a private library, poker room, or living room. They’re also a great way to block out light for your movie room. Our Levolor Custom Vertical Blinds are available in fabrics like deep Tobacco and Merlot and 121 finishes of Faux Wood Blinds as well. With so many custom swatches and designs to choose from, these vertical blinds will be sure to blend in with the finish of your bookcases or furniture.
The Relaxing Bathroom
You can channel the simplicity of design and easy-on-the-eyes spa style when you choose vertical blinds for your bathroom. Our Hunter Douglas Cadence Soft Vertical Blinds are available in a wide range of colors to match any bathroom, from relaxing neutrals and earth tones to sleek blacks and metallics.
The Modern Home
Vertical blinds were made for tall glass windows and doors, so they make a great statement inside a home with modern design. Vertical blinds allow your home to seemingly add or subtract walls and windows depending on the time of day or how much privacy you want. You can create an entirely new foyer with faux wood vertical blinds. You can play with texture by combining vertical blinds with patterned curtains. You can also contrast clean and crisp lines of contemporary design by pairing vertical and horizontal blinds.
Perhaps vertical blinds earned their unjustified reputation because they were just so simple, straight, and clean. But as these examples show, those same qualities allow vertical window blinds to make a statement. Design options for vertical blinds have also come a long way. Ready to make your statement?
