It can be difficult selecting new window treatments for your home or office. Vertical blinds are one popular option, especially for large windows or sliding patio doors. If you are considering vertical blinds, it is important to familiarize yourself with some of the pros and cons.
- Pros- There are a lot of great features of vertical blinds. One pro is how easy they are to clean. You don’t have to take them down or try to clean in between a bunch of little slats. You can simply wipe them down with a rag or duster. Individual slats are easily and inexpensively replaced in the event that one of them gets damaged. Vertical blinds are easy to use and provide privacy for your home. One nice benefit of vertical blinds is that they can be partially opened to allow access to a door or for opening a window.
- Cons- One drawback of vertical blinds is the noise they make as they are being moved. This can occur as they are opened/closed or from airflow from an opened window, fan, or vent. Oftentimes, there are gaps between the blinds and the wall. This can allow for some light to come into the room and could compromise privacy to some degree.
