Why Vertical Blinds Are Perfect for Your New Home Design


If you have just finished a new home build, then you will have made sure that it is as bright and airy as possible so that you can take advantage of the marvellous climate in your area. Now that you have installed those floor-to-ceiling windows, patio doors and other features, your attention needs to turn to the dressings, so what is the best solution here from a practicality, accessibility and style perspective?

Living with Practicality

As you designed your living area so that you can easily get to your patio, you will want to ensure that your window treatments are easy to manoeuvre and that they don't get in the way. To do this, you will need to choose vertical blinds, as they are perfect for this type of situation.

As you may know, they are quite easy to move back and forth and may be more practical than a horizontal or roller blind in this situation. You will be able to fold back the individual slats to uncover the door while shielding the other windows to take care of any unwanted glare.

Adjusting with Precision

Furthermore, you'll be able to adjust them gradually as the day goes by and as the position of the sun changes. Vertical blinds are easy to adjust and can provide a lot more options than the alternative, so you'll be able to let enough light in but still be able to watch your favourite movie on that big screen.

Accentuating the Space

As you wanted your living area to be as welcoming as possible, you may have opted to install cathedral ceilings to give that impression of space. You can add to the grandeur by installing a set of vertical blinds that extends from the ceiling to the floor so that they can help to accentuate the tall space. These blinds come in a variety of different sizes, colours and individual designs, so you will be able to match them to the decor of the room without any problem.

Placing Your Order

As you have spent a lot of money and put a lot of effort into your new home design, make sure that you get high-quality window treatments to finish the job off properly. Take all the appropriate measurements and talk with your blind suppliers so that they can provide you with the perfect solution as soon as possible.

Ian's Interior Design Blog

Welcome! My name is Ian. I have spent the last 6 months working on the interior of my home. After bringing up two kids, my home wasn't looking the best. I just hadn't had the time to carry out any work on it. Not only did the interior of my home look like something from the 1990s, it had also been damaged by my kids. I called in a team of interior design experts and they helped me to redesign the space. I am now really happy with how my home looks. I have written a series of articles which will help you to transform your home.
