At Blinds Direct, we offer an excellent selection of replacement vertical blind slats. Most of the time, these replacement slats for vertical blinds are used to substitute those which may have been damaged or fallen to wear and tear, however, this isn’t the only purpose for these quality slats, you can use them to build a blind of your own! Today, we’ll be looking at some of the best options for your home and how to make a vertical blind that’s truly unique!

Mix and match vertical blind slats

When it comes to selecting a vertical blind, many of us see them in our mind’s eye as a block colour. Whether you want a traditional cream vertical blind, or a more modern red vertical blind, there tends to be no divergence of colour. While elegant, functional, and exciting, you can improve this marvellous trinity of characteristics.

By ordering a vertical blind headrail, you can then investigate our range of replacement slats and pick a colour combination that’s perfect for your décor. This can range from a stylish duet or trio of colours, to something totally wild and wacky with no colour duplicated – the choice is all yours!

Below you can find our favourite combination of colours which you can easily add into a whole host of interior design trends.

Saffron and chambray vertical blinds

We recently covered the charming duet of saffron and chambray and while we explored different cushions, lampshades and blinds, we didn’t mention that you can enjoy a remarkable boost of fresh style by using alternating saffron yellow and chambray blue vertical blind slats. Consider this combination for a modern and fun space in your home.

Orange and cream vertical blinds

Orange and cream is a delicious combination that adds an invigorating and light hearted statement in a more traditional way. Perfect for spaces that enjoy good levels of light on a bright sunny day, an orange and cream vertical blind will help you find the summer spirit while adding a gorgeous, comfy feeling to the home. Orange was our colour of the month in October, read our Colour of the Month: Obsessed with Orange blog to learn out top tips for this excellent colour.

Pink and green vertical blinds

Sophisticated, stylish, and refreshing, pink and green vertical blinds are particularly attractive. The presence of green makes these blinds an excellent choice for patio doors, and in conservatories where the garden is only a footstep or two away. When using soft shades of pink and green, your new vertical blind will add a delicate statement to a space that’s eye-catching yet refined.

Grey and dark blue vertical blinds

Grey and dark blue is a great modern take on traditional style. Combined within a vertical blind, this colour combo is sleek and effortlessly stylish. Adding a sense of a winter sea scene to your home’s decor, grey and dark blue colours will help you to feel rooted and calm. For best effects, look to natural shades of stone grey and powdery dark blue.

The enduring sophistication and functionality of a vertical blind makes it the ideal choice for living rooms, conservatories, or home offices. Vertical blinds are an ageless option that remain sleek and smart, whether you select a crisp white style or a more distinct colour. At Blinds Direct, our made to measure vertical blinds are available in a wide choice of colours, patterns, and textures, allowing you to find the perfect style for your space.
