Vertical Blinds

Sometimes referred to as 'top to bottom blinds', vertical blinds have seen a radical development over recent years. You only have to look around the homes near you to see that window blinds are now the preferred option for both privacy and security, with 'old fashioned' nets rapidly becoming a thing of the past.

The main reason is the breath-taking introduction of 'designer' fabrics in addition to the budget fabrics that remain ever popular. There is also a huge choice of fabrics, colours and designs to suit every taste and budget.

Plus, with the busy lives that people lead these days, the regular washing and ironing necessary for net curtains is a hassle many could do without.

With vertical blinds their very 'vertical slat' design means that they do not accumulate dust easily and need far less attention than alternative window coverings.

Flexible Solution

Another bonus of vertical blinds is that they give you the option of having the slats in various positions, each position satisfying a particular need:

  • Want to block out the world?
    No problem! Vertical blinds are quickly and easily adjusted so that you have the maximum privacy and light control you wish.
  • Want to see what's going on outside but retain your privacy?
    No problem! Each slat on a vertical blind can be quickly turned to allow as much or as little light and sightline as is needed. From the slightest adjustment to a full 180 degree turn you have maximum options.
  • Want to maximise your outlook? No problem! If you want the ultimate feeling of openess, maybe to look out on your garden, or to maximise the light, or perhaps in a conservatory where you only need the privacy of blinds once the night draws in, then your vertical blinds can be quickly and easily drawn back completely to achieve full vision and light.

Where can vertical blinds be used?

Extremely versatile, vertical blinds can quite literally be used almost anywhere that you require a window covering.

From the various rooms in your house such as kitchens, bedrooms, lounges, bathrooms and conservatories to caravans, porches, sheds, orangeries, lofts and more.

Blackout Blinds

Vertical blinds can also be supplied in a range of blackout fabrics. Blackout blinds are ideal for a baby's nursery, helping them get to sleep during the day or for adults struggling to get a good night's sleep.

If you have a street light outside your house or are regularly disturbed by the blare of car headlights, a blackout blind could help to make you wake up refreshed, rather than with bags under your eyes.

Fire Retardant Fabrics

Fire retardant fabrics are often a requirement by law for commercial locations and Geoff Wilkinsons Select Blinds offer a full range of fire-retardant fabrics, whether to comply with the law, or simply for that extra peace of mind.

Quality Tracks

Operating tracks for vertical blinds are available in various grades, but it is essential, in order to avoid future disappointment, that a high quality track is used.

Geoff Wilkinsons Select Blinds provide a high quality tracking system on all their blinds, whilst still remaining competitively priced.

Tracks are available in white, brown and gold, to either blend in seamlessly with their surrounding, or to enable you to 'make a statement' with your colour design.
