Vertical Blinds in Eugene, Oregon

Vertical blinds are a great choice for tall or wide windows and are especially good for use with sliding glass doors and porches. Vertical blinds operate on a horizontal track where the panels are connected at the top. This operation mechanism makes these blinds incredibly simple to operate and adjust and allows you to move the blinds while they are completely shut. This makes for the perfect blind for glass sliding doors because you will not have to retract the entire window treatment to exit through the door. Though these blinds work incredibly well with sliding glass doors they will also make a style statement in your home when used with a wide expanse of windows. Vertical blinds will draw the eye up in your room, making your room appear larger than it actually is. Break up large groups of windows with vertical blinds that are spaced evenly to add some flair to your windows.

Style Choices

Vertical blinds come in many different styles. Depending on what you are looking for in a window treatment, you can choose blinds that feature wide vertical blinds, like Hunter Douglas’ Skyline® gliding window panels, or you can try something more traditional with narrow vanes, like the Cadence® style of blinds. The size of your vanes will change the look of your windows. Whichever style of vertical blinds you choose; you will usually be presented with a choice of materials to choose from. Vertical blinds come in a few different materials, mainly vinyl, fabric, and wood. Regardless of the material you choose, you will not be disappointed by the style options you have. Choose from a wide range of colors, patterns, and stains to make for a window treatment that fits perfectly with your décor.

Light Filtration

Depending on the materials and fabrics that you choose for your vertical blinds, they will offer varying levels of light control and light diffusion. If you choose heavy fabrics or wood vanes, you can expect to have more room darkening abilities and higher privacy levels. If you choose sheer fabrics or lightweight materials your room will have soft, diffused light when your curtains are fully closed. Depending on the style of vertical blind that you choose you can also adjust the vanes and panels to let in light without opening the entire window treatment.

Operation Systems

Vertical blinds are pretty simplistic when it comes to their operation systems. They are generally operated with a wand or a standard cord system to make control incredibly easy. With Hunter Douglas’ vertical blinds, you do have the option to choose the PowerView™ motorization system, which allows you to control the entirety of your window treatments with the touch of a button.
