Horizontal blinds are available in a variety of materials including aluminum, vinyl, wood or other materials. Presented in a variety of slat sizes, colors and textures, horizontal blinds offer excellent light and privacy control. Blinds can be raised for access or view and slats can be rotated to allow the maximum or minimum amount of light to enter the room.
These blinds with vertical vanes or louvers are usually made of vinyl, fabric or both (inserted vanes). Verticals are easy to use, are low maintenance and offer the advantage of very effective light control. Particularly well-suited for large windows, vertical louvers can be rotated to control glare, closed for complete privacy or can be drawn open for an unobstructed view.
