Should I Choose Horizontal or Vertical Blinds

Vertical and horizontal blinds are both excellent choices for your home décor. Blinds are a fashionable and functional choice for any space. Vertical and horizontal blinds are both excellent in different ways, but it can be difficult to choose which style is perfect for your home or office. The experts at Interiors: Blinds & Designs, serving Peachtree City, Newnan, Fayetteville, Senoia, Tyrone, and the surrounding areas, want to tell you a little about each of these window treatment options so you can make the best choice. We will explain the differences between their operation systems, available sizing, and other general aspects that could factor into your decision so you can understand these two styles better and choose the perfect window treatment.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are an excellent choice for tall or wide window expanses, especially sliding glass doors. Vertical blinds are perfect for sliding glass doors and porches because they operate from only the top of the window expanse. This function allows for the vanes to open and close which allows you to enter and exit through these blinds without restriction. Though these blinds are very open and easy to navigate, they will still filter light incredibly well. Hunter Douglas’ vertical blinds come in a wide range of textures and fabric designs that will add simplicity and functional beauty to any room or home. Choose from five different styles, hundreds of fine materials, colors, and fabrics to customize these blinds to fit perfectly into your decor. Available with smooth, quiet performance, these blinds can also be used with many of Hunter Douglas’ advanced operation systems to really make these window treatments perfect.


Horizontal blinds are best used with tall, narrow windows in your home. For windows that are facing north or south, horizontal blinds are the ideal choice because the slat angle can be adjusted to better block the light from entering your home. Horizontal blinds can obscure light completely, eliminating almost all light to the room or they can be left wide open to allow for maximum light to enter your space. Regardless of the positioning you choose these blinds will remain incredibly functional and easy to operate. Having this ability to adjust so broadly is a great feature for bedrooms, large sitting rooms or dens, and bathrooms because these blinds offer excellent levels of privacy when you need it most. Hunter Douglas offers a wide array of horizontal blinds for your home. With 14 different styles of horizontal blinds to choose from, your design choices are almost endless. Constructed from the finest woods, alternative woods, and aluminum material, combined with any of the available beautiful tapes, finishes, and paint colors, horizontal blinds could be an excellent choice for your home. Pair these blinds with operation systems like the PowerView™ motorization, LiteRise®, SimpleLift™, UltraGlide®, or the Standard Cordlock system for a window treatment that will satisfy all of your décor needs.
