Vertical blinds are suitable for most window shapes and add height to any room. Available in a wide range of styles from affordable vinyl and aluminum to decorative fabrics, vertical slats draw across the window like a drapery and provide decent light control. When open and stacked tightly, verticals occupy less space than draperies. And when closed, the vanes overlap. They hence are extremely energy effienct, keeping out summer heat and winter cold. They are much more easier to clean, when compared to horizontal systems like venetian blinds thanks to their vertical structure.
