How to Know If Vertical Blinds Are Right For You
Vertical blinds are the perfect choice for wide window expanses and patio or sliding doors. Our design professionals can help you choose which styles, materials, and colours are perfect for your home. We can even come to your home and provide you with a no-obligation free consultation. We will be happy to advise you on the perfect choice for all of your window treatment needs. It’s hard to make the right decision simply by looking at a photograph so we will bring actual samples to you so that you can see what they would look like in your home.
Why Vertical Blinds Are Great
New vertical blinds can quickly bring new life to a tired or worn-out looking room. Our interior design team can advise you on the perfect vertical blinds to complement your existing decor, or, if you are planning a complete remodel, they will listen to your vision and give you suggestions to help make it a reality.
Not only are our vertical blinds pleasing to the eye, but they will also help you to save money on your energy bills. Up to 50% of your home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through your windows. Vertical blinds can block the extreme cold air of winter and the stifling hot air in the summer from seeping through your windows into your rooms. You will enjoy more consistent room temperatures as well as lower utility bills.
Easy To Operate
Vertical blinds are also easy to operate. The following video demonstrates the different choices you have for opening, closing, and adjusting your blinds. Choose from the traditional chain and cord, the child and pet-friendly wand control, or, if you prefer, you can have your vertical blinds automated.
Our vertical blinds are custom crafted from the best materials available so that they will last for years to come. Not only will your blinds last but they can also protect your furnishings from the harmful effects of UV light.
Vertical blinds can give you control over the amount of light entering your room. Open them up completely to let the sunshine in or close them to take a nap during the day. You decide. Choose from a wide range of sheer to opaque materials for varying degrees of light options.
If you cherish your privacy, installing vertical blinds can provide you with the extra coverage you require if and when you need it. They will also give you an extra layer of soundproofing, blocking annoying outside noises.
Save even more energy and make your home more comfortable by having your blinds fully automated.
It is possible to control all of our custom window treatments by a simple click of a switch or from any mobile device. We partner with Somfy Home Motion to give you the very attractive option of installing motors and controls to power all of the window coverings in your home. Somfy motors will integrate seamlessly into any other home automation system you currently have.
Our solar sensor presets will also help you save energy by automatically sensing and adjusting according to the amount of sun there is. The handy App will allow you to conveniently operate your blinds, wherever you are, from your mobile device. You can also program your blinds to automatically close at dusk as you are switching on your lights. No need to run all over your home every evening to close all of your blinds.
Somfy’s Sonesse motor is specially designed to operate quietly; you will barely notice that it is running.

The Alustra® collection has the same patented design as the original Skyline® window panels but with a choice of rich materials and textures from around the world, making them quite exotic and unique.
Vertical Blinds Material Options
Fabric vertical blinds offer you the elegance of drapery with the convenience and practicality of a vertical blind. They are sleek and very modern looking. They come in a vast array of beautiful colours and textures which will certainly add charm and style to any room.
Vinyl is the most economical choice for a blind. It is easy to clean, unaffected by moisture, and comes in a wide variety of colours. Vinyl blinds may not be as visually appealing as other materials, but they are functional and cost-effective.
Aluminum blinds are a great choice for a modern look in a high-traffic area. They have a special coating that makes them highly resistant to dust. Their sleek appearance, including built-in valances and concealed mountings, will provide a streamlined aesthetic to any window.
