Our Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds are a classic. The long, sleek and elegant slats have been used to great effect in homes and offices alike. Beyond the striking look of these blinds is their functionality. The arrangement and mobility of the slats - sometimes called louvres - provides customers with great levels of light control from total light saturation, through myriad levels of light filtration to total blackout.

How To Measure For Vertical Blinds
Measuring for your new vertical blinds is hassle free and quicker than you may expect. Below we've included some top tips for both Recess and Exact fitting options.
Inside Recess (RECESS SIZE) You'll need this measurement if your vertical blind is to fit within the recess of your window. Firstly, measure the drop and width from three positions and supply the smallest size. From there, our team will make the requisite deductions, ensuring the blind fits effortlessly within the window's recess.
Outside Recess (EXACT SIZE) An exact size measurement is required for blinds that will hang outside the recess and overlap your window. Decide how much to overlap the recess at both sides, we recommend 7.5cm each as a minimum, as well as the top and bottom. Next, measure the width and the drop in three separate positions ensuring you provide the smallest measurement. If you're concerned about measuring your blinds, you can benefit from our Surefit guarantee, for peace of mind.

Which Is Better Faux Wood Or Wood Blinds?
One of the main benefits of vertical blinds is they require very little maintenance, owed to the long hanging slats, which are less likely to collect dust than other window furnishings.
Furthermore, most vertical blinds are constructed from a flexible and durable fabric, therefore it's easy to wipe clean with a soft damp cloth. If you do need to clean it a little more thoroughly, you can remove each louvre individually to reach any difficult spots.
What Happens If I Need to Replace a Slat?
Let's face it, sometimes mistakes happen, and your window furnishing can get stained or damaged. Whether you have a climbing cat or a messy eater in the home, replacement slats can easily be ordered through the website. Simply pick your blind and select the “louvres only” option. Order just one or a few, or perhaps as many necessary to change all your slats - a quick and cost effective solution to refreshing your decor.
