Vertical blinds; they are old and outdated and worst of all they make noise “when you keep them closed and leave the window open!”  I’ve been hearing this for the past 10 years….So I think it’s fair to say that the excuses for not wanting vertical blinds is that they are “old and outdated!” ….Reality check!
Verticals are low maintenance, carry the most options for sliding glass doors, are multifunctional, and more than 80% of the repair issues can be taken care of in the store. They have the most durable mechanism for extreme sized treatments and are the least expensive option when comparing crossover products/materials. They are even compatible with most styles of decor!
It’s funny how a person I know got rid of the vertical blind she had hanging over her picture window for 15 years and decided to replace it with a 1 piece cellular shade, only now to be  complaining because the shade has been in for repair three times in the past 5 years. Something that would not have happened with verticals!
Yes, there are still some things that can be improved with vertical blinds but they’re constantly coming out with new textures, styles and repair options to help verticals remain a lasting part of the design industry.
…now look who’s acting “old and outdated”!
