If you’ve decided on blinds for your home, you may be wondering whether to  choose horizontal or vertical blinds.  There are many factors that can affect your choice, but here are a few basic tips:

Vertical blinds

These are often chosen for large windows and openings, such as a patio sliding door.  They can withstand heavier winds, and can be easier to operate if the window is particularly large.  Many people choose plantation shutters for openings that would typically be served by vertical blinds, as plantation shutters can offer ease of use even over large openings, with the adjustability and cosmetic appeal of horizontal blinds.

Horizontal blinds

For standard sized windows, our Basswood and Fauxwood horizontal blinds are a popular choice, as many people consider them to be more aesthetically appealing than vertical blinds, especially in residential settings.  Horizontal blinds offer a great degree of versatility.  Whether you need more light, less airflow or increased privacy, horizontal blinds give you excellent flexibility.

We also offer window treatments that blur the lines between shades, blinds, curtains and draperies.  In the end, whether you settle on interior shutters or window treatments, you can rely on Danmer products to deliver years of beauty and reliability.
