ALTERNATIVES TO VERTICAL BLINDS

Vertical blinds are functional and sometimes they can seem like the only solution for tricky spaces like sliding glass doors or expansive windows. But they are outdated, clunky, and make a space feel more corporate than home-y. There are several alternatives to vertical blinds that are functional and have a refined style. Don’t choose function over form when you can have both!

Custom Draperies

The most common place people install vertical blinds are on sliding glass doors. Many people worry that draperies will get caught in their sliders so they opt for vertical blinds instead. It’s true that this can be an issue, but our experts know exactly how to install your draperies so this is never a problem.

Sheers

Many people choose vertical blinds because they have a wide width window and need an affordable solution to cover it. If this is the case for you, consider sheer window treatments. Sheers let in natural light while still providing privacy. Open-weave sheers offer even more privacy coverage and are a smart choice for bedrooms or rooms facing the street.

Hunter Douglas Luminette® Privacy Sheers

Hunter Douglas Luminette® Privacy Sheers are a great options for sliding glass doors, wide windows, and expansive walls of windows. If you like the vertical lines created by vertical blinds, you’ll love Luminettes! They consist of vertical fabric vanes that can be rotated 180-degrees to diffuse light, filter out glare, reduce UV rays, and provide privacy coverage.

Custom Shades

Shades are a great alternative to vertical blinds and are especially practical for double doors. Shades can be pulled down at night for privacy or to block the harsh morning or afternoon sun. Shades come in many varieties. Select from several fold styles, colors, and either horizontal or vertical orientation.
