Why We Love Vertical Blinds
Gravity – you can’t get away from it. It’s everywhere! Without gravity, vertical blinds wouldn’t be so vertical – they’d float all over the place and entangle themselves in your early morning yoga. However, with the power of gravity firmly entrenched in our civilisation, vertical blinds hang stoutly down, in for all intents and purposes as mighty a display of verticality as you will ever see in your life. But verticals never really achieve relaxation. They’re a hard-working blind, on duty, doing their job. At Lavish we love our vertical blinds, and here’s why:
Vertical Blinds and the X-Axis
Vertical blinds move horizontally. Unlike roller blinds, which move vertically. Does that mean that roller blinds should be called “horizontal blinds?” Fortunately, this confusing conclusion was never reached, and despite their horizontal action, verticals remain – vertical. (For now.) This horizontal action gives vertical blinds an advantage over their roller cousins, because of the invention, and popularity, of the sliding door. Sliding doors are not best solved by roller blinds, whose nature demands a complete withdrawal in this application. Verticals, on the other hand, can be partially withdrawn (horizontally) allowing transit of people, livestock and domestic animals through sliding doorways as required.
Long Overlaps & Round Corners
Long windows, especially commercial windows, love vertical blinds almost as much as we do. The nature of verticals means they can be installed for a seamless effect across any space, no matter how long it is. Applications such as roller blinds can’t achieve the same effect in this context. Furthermore, vertical blinds can be used to go around curved windows in a way like no other blind. Let’s face it. There is much to love about vertical blinds.
Principally, the reason blinds of any type are installed is for privacy and environmental control. Other beneficial side-effects, such as how they look or how well they function, are helpful but don’t drive the original purpose of getting blinds. Vertical blinds have a very handy asset that relates to environmental control. Managing light transmission with Lavish verticals isn’t about fabrics – it’s about a twist of the wrist allowing more, or less light, into the room. It’s done with the wand and it is the closest thing to magic most of us will ever know.
