People Still Buy Verticals?

By Steven M.

A common question many people ask is “Do people actually still buy vertical blinds?” The answer usuallly shocks them, because yes people do indeed still purchase them. They have a plethora os uses and functions, which keep them relevent and useful. While some see them as old and outdated, in some situations they are a simple and effective solution to problems people face when covering windows and doors.

Sliding/Patio dorrs are one situation which a vertical blind is a common and popular treatment. The fact that they move the same way your door does makes for a smooth operation and use of both the door and blind. Another situation in which many would choose to use a vertical are windows that are much wider than your “standard” sized windows. When you begin to search for a covering on a window which is 10 plus feet in size your options become quite limited. Again vertricals are a common suggestion and solution to a situation such as this as they can go up to 16 feet wide. With the various colors and styles that are offered, many giving the appearance of curtains with a s-curve, or fabric verticals, the  idea of them being old and ugly is a distant thought. 

In conclusion, while verticals may seem olf and outdated, they are not going anywhere anytime soon. They provide very easy solutions to problems people face quite often, two of which I have addressed here. The ease of use is simply an added bonus, giving the user a simple expierence. As surprisiing as it may be, yes people still buy vertical blinds.

Winter’s over! It’s finally that time of year to open up the windows and let in the fresh air. One of the most popular sellers this time of the year are window coverings for sliding glass doors.  Most of the time in the winter, you are trying to cut down on the doors people are tracking the snow and mud into, so they don’t get used, and once spring rolls around, people start to realize how worn out the slats are, or that pieces of the track have been lost along the way.
