Are vertical blinds outdated?
Vertical blinds are coming back with a bang. Once seen as going out of fashion, vertical blinds are again fast becoming one of the most popular blinds on the market. With the fantastic range of colours and patterns available, with advancing options such as chainless bottom weights to keep pets safe and no longer tangled around the bottom chains, wand control for superior child safety and slat tilting motorisation, it is hard to overlook vertical blinds in your home or office.
How to clean vertical blinds?
The fabric of the vertical blinds must be handled and cleaned delicately and with care. A hoover attachment with a bristle end can be gently used to remove any dust from the fabric. If the fabric has become stained or marked, the use of warm soapy water or a baby wipe is advised by gently wiping the marked area. If an area is wiped too vigorously it will most likely discolour the area or remove some of the important properties of the fabric.
How to measure for vertical blinds?
For blinds going into the window recess, measure the width first. With a tape measure, measure the width at three points, top, middle and bottom of the recess. To ensure the blind will fit take the smallest of the 3 measurements.
Then measure the drop in three points, left, middle and right. Again taking the smallest measurement. If your measurements are entered into our website as ‘Recess’, we will take 10mm from the width and drop to ensure the blind fits perfectly into the window recess.
