The Best Uses for Vertical Blinds

When you think about vertical blinds, you’re probably envisioning the classic white vertical blinds you’d find on any cookie-cutter home’s sliding glass doors. While we love this classic look, at Utah Blinds Gallery, our vertical blinds selections from Hunter Douglas go way beyond the basics by pushing the boundaries of innovation, functionality, and beauty in your home. Our vertical blinds offerings are the perfect solution for any window and door—even as room dividers—but some definitely have more favorable settings to work their best.

The Best Windows for Vertical Blinds

There’s a time and a place for every window treatment, and vertical blinds certainly have their fair share. At Utah Blinds Gallery, we believe there tons of great spaces and styles for vertical blinds. We typically recommend vertical blinds to our customers whose homes have exceptionally large spaces to cover, especially windows wider than they are tall.

Below is a list of our ideal windows for vertical blinds:

  • Large windows
  • French doors
  • Sliding glass doors
  • Wide windows
  • Bay windows
  • Patio doors
  • Sunrooms
The main takeaway here is that vertical blinds are an exceptionally functional window treatment when you need to cover a wide, expansive space.
When choosing your ideal vertical blinds, our team of designers and installation experts will be happy to help you with choosing the perfect set of vertical blinds for your living space. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind is that the larger the window is, the larger you’ll want the slat to be. This is the most effective way to cover your window and make the blinds fit the window and not be overtaken by the large space. Larger slat sizes are usually read as having better curb appeal, rather than small/thin slats that will end up looking more like mini blinds on your large windows.
