We have moved past the days of the traditional vertical blind. Although they are still available, there are now many additional choices for today’s homeowner. Included in the mix are Luminette® Privacy Sheers, Vignette® Traversed shades, and Skyline™ Gliding Window Panel Track systems and Duette® Vertiglide™ Honeycomb Shades.
Luminette® Privacy Sheers
Luminette privacy sheers are available in an array of drapery like fabrics for the ultimate in privacy and light control. With vanes that rotate 180 degrees, you can capture as much of the natural light as you want. By adjusting the vanes you can close them for privacy or rotate them open to diffuse harsh exterior light. The beautiful sheer fabrics protect your furnishings and flooring from damaging UV rays. The unique hardware system is exceptionally beautiful on its own – no top treatment or valance is required. The Manhattan hardware system offers the look of beautiful decorative hardware for that next level of sophistication.
Traversed with Vertiglide Shades is the newest offering from Hunter Douglas. They took their popular Vignette® Modern Roman Shade and created a vertical application. The soft folds of fabric make it a perfect solution for expansive windows and doors. Utilizing the same fabrics as the Vignette Modern Shades, but in a vertical orientation, is a great way to give continuity to a room with a combination of windows and doors. The easy operating system and small stackback make it ideal for preserving views.
Skyline™ Gliding Window Panels
This sleek and contemporary design is a great option to cover those large sliding glass doors or even as a room divider. The patented headrail system can cover large expanses without extending in to the room and taking away valuable space. With the ability to control which way the vanes overlap you can ensure that glare towards beds or tv’s is minimized.
Duette® or Applause® Vertiglide™ Honeycomb Shades
Perfect for sliding glass doors or large windows, Duette® Vertiglide™ Honeycomb Shades compliments your other horizontal honeycomb shades in the room. Available in hundreds of colors and fabrics in light-filtering to room-darkening.
Somner® Vertical Blinds
These traditional vertical blinds offers vinyl vanes as well as free hanging fabric vanes or a combination of the fabric inserted into a vinyl vane for the ultimate in beauty and light control. Available with multiple valance styles and operating systems.
