Vertical blinds are available in a huge range of colour options, including plain, textured, patterned and blackout fabrics. Many fabrics are also available as Roller Blinds. This makes it possible to mix and match different blinds in the same room in the same fabric, for example in a kitchen/diner you can have Vertical blinds at your French Doors and a Roller Blind at your kitchen window.
All fabrics are available in a louvre width of 89mm. Certain fabrics are also available in a width of 127mm. They are operated with either a Wand control or Chord/Chain control.

About Vertical Blinds - What are they?
Vertical blinds offer a great solution for your windows if you want both privacy and light control, as you can angle the louvres to allow daylight into your room whilst maintaining most of your privacy. It is possible to rotate the louvres by 180 degrees.
Control & Draw Options
There are two control options for Louvre blinds:
- Wand control – draws the louvres across the window and also rotates them. This is a child safety option. However, it is not recommended for a split draw, as the wand sits in the middle of the blind itself.
- Cord/chain – the cord traverses the louvres across the window, whilst the chain rotates them. A cord tidy will be fitted with this option for child safety.
Most fabrics are polyester, but some fabrics are mixed, for example pvc/glass fibre or polyester/polypropylene.
Vertical Blinds come in 3 different draw options, as chosen at time of order:
- Left hand draw
- Right hand draw
- Split draw (where the louvres pull evenly to both sides of the window)
Standard louvres permit privacy whilst allowing a soft diffused light into the room.
Some fabrics are available with a sun reflective backing, which deflects sunlight back to the window, keeping the room cool in the summer.
A blackout backing will ensure no light passes through the fabric itself. N.B. light will filter through where the louvres overlap; light will also appear around the edges.
Headrails are supplied with a slim line track, but a wide-bodied version is also available. Curved headrails are also available for bay windows. The standard colour option is white. A choice of brown, platinum or black headrails are also possible.
