Should You Choose Vertical or Horizontal Blinds?

Blinds are a classic window treatment to add to your home, and they can be very functional for light control and privacy. They can come in many different styles, sizes, colors, and even materials, but they have two orientations: horizontal and vertical. Cameron’s designs of Orlando, Florida, serving the great Orlando and Central Florida area, offers this guide to help you choose which type of blind is best suited for your space.

Horizontal Blinds

Horizontal blinds are a great fit for virtually any smaller or regular sized window. They can be added to any traditional sized window in your home or office for a refreshing and modern update. While common in most homes, Hunter Douglas keeps horizontal blinds interesting by offering them in a variety of color and material options that perfectly complement your space, and are perfect for updating your windows. They have many useful features available like de-Light™ which hides cord holes, eliminating those annoying spots of light that you can get in your blinds.

Hunter Douglas horizontal blinds come in three materials: real wood, alternative wood, and aluminum. Horizontal real wood blinds are available in a variety of stains and finishes designed to match the furnishing in your home. The woods in Hunter Douglas wood blinds are also harvested from responsibly managed forests. Alternative wood blinds are a unique option that have the look and durability of real wood but at a lower price point. Aluminum horizontal blinds come in an affordable range of color options to accommodate any room. All these different materials provide you with a versatile horizontal blind selection to choose from.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are fitting for larger expanses of window and sliding glass doors because they traverse horizontally, making them easier to operate for larger window expanses. These are blinds that are perfect for your larger windows in the summer months especially, as you’ll want to block the sun’s rays on larger windows to prevent more heat from coming into your home. These blinds look suitable on your large living room windows or the sliding doors that lead to your outdoor living area or pool.

Hunter Douglas vertical blinds have features that will add to the value of your window treatments. A traditional chain and cord system provides smooth operation, and PowerView® Motorization lets you tilt or open your blinds with the touch of a button- so you can get a view of your patio without even getting up. They are customizable in size ranging in heights of 9 to 192 inches and widths of 9 to 384 inches. Vertical blinds from Hunter Douglas do more than just serve function though – they add a charming, sophisticated look to any room.
