At Incredible Windows, a shop from home window treatment store serving areas near Madison, Wisconsin from Dane County to Green County and beyond, we specialize in custom Hunter Douglas window treatments and take the guesswork out of the process for you. If you’re searching for new window treatments for your home, you’ve likely come across various styles and types. Window fashions have come a long way, and many choices exist for the discerning homeowner. You might know what material you want but not the size or style of treatment you need. You might have tricky windows and doors that won’t fit standard, off-the-rack blinds, or shades.

We are window treatment experts and love sharing our knowledge. Today we will discuss the benefits and best uses of vertical blinds. When do you choose them over other styles? What windows work best with vertical blinds? Read on for our suggestions and advice. You can contact us online to request a consultation.

What are Vertical Blinds?

If someone tells you to picture a set of window blinds, you will likely first imagine the horizontal slats of mini blinds. Vertical blinds, simply put, hang vertically instead, and move horizontally. They move on a track or headrail and can be stacked to the left or right for a full view out the window. Vertical blinds are popular for extensive and tall windows, French doors, and sliding glass doors.

Hunter Douglas Vertical Blind Styles

We have a variety of Hunter Douglas vertical blinds to choose from depending on your window shape and size as well as your lighting, style, and privacy preferences.

Luminette® Sheer Panels

For a soft, drapery-like look, Luminette® Sheer Panels are a good choice. They filter light, can be stacked to the side for a full view, and provide privacy when closed. These 3 ½ vanes come in many colors to choose from, like soft, cool whites, stylish pastels, and even dark, rich browns and charcoal shades.

Skyline® Panel-Track Blinds

Panel-track blinds work a little differently than other vertical blinds. The panels are much wider, at 11 ½” or 17”, and create a dramatic look for expansive windows. They run on a track at the top and an interlocking bottom rail, so the individual panes are not rotated but instead, the entire set of panels is pushed aside to open the view. They can be stacked left to right or parted down the middle for a custom look.

Hunter Douglas Skyline® Panel-Track Blinds come in over 150 colors to fit any interior design scheme, whether you want them light and neutral to allow the light to be the star or stark and dark to play as a focal point when you walk in the room. These also work great as room dividers for those larger spaces and are great for creating more intimate areas of privacy and separation in great rooms or open concept floorplans.

Cadence® Vertical Blinds

For looks that mimic the luxe touch of drapery folds with the function of vertical blinds, try Cadence® Vertical Blinds for their dimensional look. With over 40 fabric and vinyl options, these blinds can stack to the left, to the right, or can be split to reveal gorgeous views or closed tight for absolute privacy using the whisper-quiet headrail. Choose from a cord and chain, a cord and wand, a safety wand, or motorized operation options for your ideal operation system and create the perfect set of blinds for your interiors with these customizable drape-like blinds.
