Vertical blinds are probably the most common type of blinds. They have been used in kitchens, living rooms or bedrooms, and they are still a preferred choice of many house owners because of the ease of operation they offer and their modern look.
Different types of Electric vertical blinds
Vertical blinds have slats of different widths, so house owners can choose the width they think is more appropriate considering the purpose of the room and the overall style of it. Smaller widths offer a delicate image, and are more suitable to living spaces such as the bedroom or living room. However, they stack larger, because they include a higher number of slats than a set of blinds with wider slats. Thin slats can also be damaged more easily, because they are very delicate. That is why it is not advisable to install small width vertical slats in children’s rooms, because they might damage them and accidents might happen.
There is a great number of choices in terms of materials when it comes to vertical blinds: metal, wood, plastic or fabric. Metal vertical blinds are the most sophisticated, modern and stylish type of vertical blinds. They are perfect in modern design homes or offices. They are also easy to clean and more durable. However, they might create a cold atmosphere that can be inappropriate in some living spaces. The same goes for plastic vertical blinds. They are cheaper than metal blinds, but as easy to clean. They also match minimalist interiors designs, and can be a great choice in schools, hotels, but also in kitchens and bathrooms.

If you want vertical blinds that offer a warmer atmosphere than plastic and metal blinds do, you could choose wood or fabric. Wood blinds are suitable in living rooms or bedrooms, especially if the furnishing is made of wood. Traditionally designed rooms are the best places where wood blinds can be installed. However, wood blinds can also be an expensive choice, and the options in terms of colours and textures might be pretty limited.
A greater array of textures, colours and patterns is available for fabric blinds. Furthermore, you can also choose the transparency of the fabric in order to control the amount of natural light that penetrates the blinds during the day. Transparent fabrics will allow a great amount of light to pass through the blinds when they are closed. However, because of the slats and the cracks that are usually created between them, with vertical blinds, you will never be able to enjoy perfect darkness when the sun is up. Slats do overlap each other, but they still cannot create the blackout effect other types of blinds are able to offer. Therefore, vertical blinds are most appropriate for people who like to enjoy some natural light even when they close the blinds completely.
The benefits of having vertical blinds
The greatest benefit vertical blinds offer is the increased light control. The blinds can be adjusted in many ways. You can totally open or totally close the blinds, by pulling them toward the extremities of the windows. Therefore, when you want to enjoy the view, you can pull the blinds to the side, they will stack neatly, and sunlight will pour in the room. If the sun is too bright, you can choose to close the blinds completely, and enjoy the shade.
However, you can choose to adjust the blinds and balance the amount of light and shade in the room in whatever way you like. This is possible thanks to the fact that you can change the angle of the slats. Furthermore, you can choose not to pull the blinds toward the extremities, but stop in an intermediate position. This way, a part of the room will be lit by the sun, while another part will remain in the shade. Therefore, you have maximum control over the amount and direction of the light that enters your room. Such a high light control cannot be offered by any other type of blinds.
Electric operation makes adjusting vertical blinds incredibly easy. You can close or open the blinds and adjust the slat angle with a push of a button. You can also choose to memorize a certain position of the blinds and use it anytime you like. Now, light control is even higher with the help of remote controlled operation and the automatic features of the blinds.
Another benefit of vertical blinds is the fact that they do not accumulate dust. Unlike horizontal blinds, that tend to accumulate a lot of dust as time passes, vertical blinds remain clean and dust free for a long period, because dust falls between the slats, without meeting any surfaces where it can accumulate.
However, if you want to clean your vertical blinds, this can be easily done. You can detach every slat and wash it in the washing machine, in case it is made of washable fabric. In the case of PVC or metal, you can easily wash the slats with a sponge and soapy water.
