What are vertical blinds?
Vertical blinds are a simple, effective and affordable window covering for sliding doors and side-opening windows. They are controlled by an easy-to-use wand or chain mechanism and can be opened or closed to varying degrees. Whether vertical blinds are covering a sliding door or a window, these blinds in modern colours and designs are a cost-effective and user-friendly window treatment for your home.
Why should I choose this style of blinds?
Vertical blinds are one of the most affordable window treatment solutions for the family home, providing privacy, light and temperature control along with modern aesthetic appeal. These easy-to-operate blinds offer flexibility and a wide range of modern colours to provide a contrast within your home décor, or to blend in for a subtle, minimalistic impression.
Roller blinds are also a great option, but vertical blinds are ideally suited for providing easy access to sliding doors and windows. Vertical blinds are a budget-friendly, practical solution suitable for all windows and doors.

Do vertical blinds block out light?
High quality block-out fabric offers total privacy and light control as it blocks out all external light. It is a great fabric choice for bedrooms and home theatres as it allows the room to be placed in complete darkness, regardless of the amounts of light outside. Block out fabric is also a good insulator, keeping your home heating indoors during winter and preventing solar heat from penetrating the home in summer. However, the structure of vertical blinds means that while they can block out the majority of external light, they aren’t the very best blind option if 100% light block out is required. Solid blinds, such as roman or roller blinds will offer more amount of light control.
Can vertical blinds give me 100% privacy?
Carpet Court has a wide range of blind to provide your home with 100% privacy. Manufactured with high quality 5 pass acrylic coating, the stunning Aria collection delivers the ultimate in privacy and performance. And with a contemporary colour palette ranging from cool and calm neutrals to dramatic blacks and greys, they’re the perfect choice to add designer style and complete privacy to bedrooms, home cinemas and bathrooms.
What are the advantages of light filtering fabric?
If you’d like the option to allow different amounts of light into your space, light filtering fabric is a great choice. Carpet Court’s Le Reve collection of light filtering vertical blinds offer a contemporary colour palette that will complement any décor and protect your flooring and furnishings from penetrating sunlight.
What are uncoated vertical blinds?
Many of our styles are available coated or uncoated. Uncoated blinds give your windows a softer appearance as they are more sheer than block-out blinds which are coated.
Our Broome II range of uncoated blinds offers a variety of beautiful modern colours that bring a feeling of tranquillity and freshness to your home. The natural look and feel of these blinds perfectly complement a contemporary décor and evoke a sense of relaxed luxury.
Which style will suit my home?
Vertical blinds are a versatile, cost-effective option to suit any window or sliding door. Carpet Court offers a wide range of fabrics in various textures, colours and screen densities to suit any style of décor or personal taste.
Before choosing your blinds, you should first decide what their application would be. Will they be used purely as a decorative accessory to your windows or sliding doors? Do you need 100% privacy or are you looking for a window covering that gives you the option to control the amount of light filtering in?
Next, think about your current interior décor and what sort of effect you want the blinds to have. Are you looking for a design that blends into your existing space? If so, consider choosing more neutral shades in cream, white, grey or light blue. Do you want them to make a designer statement and create an immediate impact? If so, think about textured designs in a contemporary palette of black or grey. For expert advice and inspiration, talk to your local Carpet Court specialists, who are well versed in the latest design trends.
