Vertical Blind Alternatives Window Shades

Traditional vertical blinds might seem like the only option for sliding doors and other big windows, but they're not! Trade that tired look for something fresh with a great selection of vertical blind alternatives at Blindsgalore.  There are actually quite a few different styles of window treatments that are perfect for your patio doors and large windows.  Vertical cellular shades, custom drapery, sheer vertical blinds and panel track blinds (sometimes called sliding panels) are all great choices - here's why.

One of the biggest complaints about vertical blinds is they don't usually coordinate with other window treatments.  So the patio door can end up looking tired and forlorn compared to other windows in the home.  No more - all of the window treatments in this section coordinate with other styles of blinds and shades.  Panel track blinds can be made of the same material as nearly all of our roller shades, roman shades, solar screens and even our woven wood and bamboo shades.  So you can have standard shades for your normal windows and a matching panel track blind for your patio door! Need a little more insulation? Try a vertical cellular shade - the cellular honeycomb material is positioned vertically to extend across a wide window, and operates smoothly on an easy to install headrail. It's the same energy efficient material as a normal cellular shade so it coordinates perfectly (cellular shades are also available as skylights and arches for a truly whole-house solution). Sheer vertical blinds are an elegant treatment and coordinate with sheer horizontal shades, while our custom drapery matches our Designer Series roman shades.

Another gripe about vertical blinds is that they can be very noisy.  With a fabric alternative to a vertical blind, that clack-clack-clack every time you open your vertical blind is a thing of the past.  You also won't have to worry about the vertical vanes breaking from being pushed aside or being rotated improperly.  The track systems on panel track blinds and vertical cellular shades are completely different and don't have these issues.  So try something new and get a complete look your neighbors will envy.
