The Benefits of Vertical Blinds

With so many different types of blinds out there to choose from, it can certainly be a little daunting trying to find the right one for your home. The number of pros and cons to each design are vast, and any and all information will be helpful in making your decision. Consequently, this month we’re sharing just some of the benefits of vertical blinds for your convenience.

Unprecedented Degree of Lighting Control

For many people, the first and foremost requirement of their blinds is to control lighting. A set of blinds that fail to adequately control lighting levels in a room are merely an aesthetic addition, so it’s important you aim to get both the aesthetic and practical uses out of your blinds. Vertical blinds provide users with an unprecedented degree of lighting control.

With vertical blinds, you can capitalise on what little light there is in the winter and block out overbearing glare in the summer, or balance it in between. Likewise, with certain materials you can also achieve complete privacy no matter what time of day it is.

An Affordable, Functional Option

Another great benefit of vertical blinds is that they are an affordable way to decorate your window spaces. Compared with other blind designs, such as wooden shutters or high quality fabric Roman blinds, vertical blinds are the affordable solution that allows you to benefit from the lighting and privacy functionalities of blinds without breaking the bank.

Passive Health Benefits

Although we all look forward to the return of the summer sun, we often don’t pay enough attention to how detrimental too much sun can be – at least until we burn! Unfortunately, before we burn our skin may have already soaked up harmful amounts of UV radiation, which can cause skin cancer. Vertical blinds serve as protection from overexposure to UV rays.

On the other hand, in the winter your vertical blinds can provide an extra layer of insulation between you and the cold outside. The passive health benefits you can receive from vertical blinds are a year round offering!


Vertical blinds are also extremely versatile. Until relatively recently, for instance, vertical blinds were the only choice for adorning patio doors, with other types of blinds being too fiddly to fit. But it isn’t simply where you can fit vertical blinds – their versatility also extends to their use. As stated above, they offer an unprecedented degree of lighting control, allowing you to twist them open to whatever position you require, or open them entirely and bring them out of the way of the window for a full, unobstructed view of the outside.
