Forget what you’ve heard about vertical blinds. This classic blind style shouldn’t be limited to offices and clinical settings. In fact, the right vertical blind is the perfect choice for the modern home, bringing sleekness, style and so much functionality.

Modern vertical blinds

At Blinds Direct, we think it’s important to shine the spotlight on each of our product types. It’s time to turn our attention to vertical blinds, which are all too often deemed old fashioned or corporate. The truth is, vertical blinds are now a super trendy option for the home, perfect for creating a modern and minimalistic look in your window.

Benefits of modern vertical blinds

Privacy and light control

Modern vertical blinds provide exceptional privacy and light control. The arrangement of the louvres means that views from both directions will be obscured, while sunlight can be controlled to a precise degree. This is ideal for rooms that might be overlooked, or where you require additional privacy.

The versatility of contemporary modern vertical blinds

A versatile style of window treatment, vertical blinds can be made to fit windows of any size, including large expanses of glass such as bi-folding, sliding and crittall style doors. You can also install vertical blinds in bay windows, which are often difficult to dress. The nature of vertical blinds means that light control and privacy will never be compromised, even if your window is an unusual shape or size.

With crisp lines, a smooth movement and a neat stack, vertical blinds are the perfect solution for contemporary settings. If you’re a fan of the modern minimalist look, they’re also the ultimate choice, especially if you opt for a simplistic design in a shade such as charcoal, graphite or misty grey.

What colours are modern vertical blinds available in?

Of course, you needn’t stick to neutral tones if you’re looking to make more of a statement. Jet black modern vertical blinds is a brave choice that’s sure to draw attention, while purple, red, yellow and pink vertical blinds are also available for homeowners who prefer a pop of colour. You could also layer your vertical blinds with curtains or voiles, bringing extra depth and interest to your window display.

How to care for your modern vertical blinds

Another benefit of modern vertical blinds is that they require very little maintenance, owed to the long hanging louvres, which are less likely to collect dust. Most vertical blinds are also constructed from a flexible and durable fabric, and so it’s easy to wipe clean with a soft damp cloth. If you do choose to clean more thoroughly, you can remove each louvre individually. The same goes for replacing louvres. This makes vertical blinds one of the most practical options for your home.

Which rooms suit modern vertical blinds the best?

Vertical blinds are a stylish and affordable option for your home, and shouldn’t be overlooked in favour of soft window dressings or wooden blinds.
