WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VERTICAL BLINDS?
Vertical blinds are simple, practical and affordable window coverings for sliding doors and side-opening windows. You can slide them fully aside or position them anywhere between open and closed. Here are their benefits and special features:
- Adaptability: Vertical blinds can fit almost any window size, so they’re perfect for large or unusual spaces.
- Light control: With adjustable slats, you can control glare, light and heat effectively.
- Cost-effective: These blinds offer a budget-friendly, high-quality option for window dressing.
- Easy installation: Their lightweight design makes them straightforward to install.
- Variety of choices: A wide selection of colours and fabrics allows you to find the perfect match for your décor.
- Privacy: You can adjust the slats to enjoy complete privacy while allowing in natural light.
- Energy efficiency: Vertical blinds help regulate indoor temperatures by controlling sunlight exposure.
- Room darkening: Blockout vertical blinds offer excellent light control, which is ideal for bedrooms or media rooms.
- Durability: They’re made to last, and that’s why they withstand daily use with minimal maintenance.
- Child safety: Vertical blinds are child-safe, with special features designed for ease of use. They have vertical fabric slats with bottom weights and are operated by a simple wand or chain mechanism.
WHAT COLOUR SHOULD VERTICAL BLINDS BE?
Choosing the right colour for your vertical blinds involves matching or complementing what's already in your room. To keep it timeless, match the blinds with your window trim. For a stylish, cohesive feel, pick colours that go with your walls. You can also choose shades that match your furniture or flooring for a harmonious look.
If you're feeling bold, go for a contrasting colour to make your blinds stand out and add vibrancy to your room. Your room size matters, too. Lighter colours work well in smaller spaces and make them feel more spacious, while darker shades add richness and depth that are perfect for larger areas.
Find a variety of vertical blinds in stylish colours to match your style at Carpet Court. Our Modern Metallic collection features vertical blinds in metallic shades that add a touch of sophistication to your space, while our Modern collection gives you over 20 colour options, from muted neutrals to bold shades.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VERTICAL AND ROLLER BLINDS?
Vertical blinds have individual slats running along a track at the top. You can tilt these slats to adjust light control, light filtering and privacy levels and draw them to one side to fully uncover the window.
Unlike other window furnishings like Venetian blinds, Roman blinds, panel glide blinds or panel blinds and plantation shutters, vertical blinds offer a distinct look and functionality, especially in terms of how they suit large windows and sliding doors.
Roller blinds are a window furnishing option that rolls up at the top of the window. They have a sleek and minimalist design that’s ideal for modern interiors. They’re also available in light-filtering, blockout and sunscreen fabrics that allow you to control the amount of light and privacy in your home.
Both vertical and roller blinds have their benefits, and the best option for you depends on what you need, your style preferences and the type of window you have. We have both vertical and roller blinds at Carpet Court, giving you the flexibility to choose the perfect window treatment for your Australian home.
ARE CURTAINS BETTER THAN VERTICAL BLINDS?
Choosing between curtains and vertical blinds depends on factors like room size, design style, light control, sound insulation and maintenance.
Curtains offer a classic, elegant look that’s suitable for spacious rooms, with options for light layering and superior sound insulation. Vertical blinds are a better window furnishing option for compact spaces and modern decor. Ultimately, the choice between curtains and vertical blinds comes down to your specific needs and preferences.
CAN VERTICAL BLINDS BE ELECTRICALLY OPERATED?
Of course, you can have electrically operated vertical blinds! And at Carpet Court, we offer a comprehensive range of motorised blinds designed to simplify your life.
Experience the convenience of effortlessly controlling your vertical blinds with the touch of a button or a voice command. Our motorised vertical blinds provide enhanced privacy, improved energy efficiency and increased safety for your home.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN VERTICAL BLINDS?
Cleaning vertical blinds is a straightforward process that can be done every few months. Regular cleaning will keep them looking fresh and new. Here’s an easy-to-follow guide to help you clean your vertical blinds effectively:
- Carefully remove the blinds from the headrail and lay them flat. This is a good time to dust off the headrail, too.
- Use a microfibre cloth or a duster to gently clean each blind from top to bottom. A vacuum with a brush attachment can be effective for dust removal.
- For washable blinds, soak them in a bathtub with warm water and mild soap, or if machine-washable, secure them in a pillowcase and use a gentle cycle with cool water.
- Lay the blinds flat on a clean surface to dry. You can use a hairdryer in a cool setting to speed up drying, but avoid using a tumble dryer.
- Once dry, carefully rehang the blinds on the headrail.
