Say goodbye to limited vertical window shades and blinds options like one way draw draperies or vertical blinds. Window covering styles for sliding glass doors and large windows are versatile, not predictable. Today’s vertical window shades and blinds are stylish, functional, provides privacy, light control, protection from solar heat and cold. Below are a few of my favorite vertical window shades and blinds styles for doors, large windows or even to use as room dividers.
1. Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades with Vertiglide™
Duette® Architella® Honeycomb shades clean, tailored look combined with energy efficiency makes them one of my 5 favorite vertical window shades . In a space with windows and doors I recommend using the same style of shade in horizontal and vertical orientation to keep the rhythm around the room.
2. Luminette® Privacy Sheers
The Luminette® Privacy Sheers is my next “fav”. Luminette® has a soft sheer fabric combined with a tilting vane between the sheers for unlimited privacy, light control and protection for your fabric, furniture and floors. For wide windows and sliding doors, Luminette® Privacy Sheers have an array of sheer and drapery-like fabrics. The seamless, contoured fabric columns in Luminette® Modern Draperies create traditional elegance. Available in a full panel of fabric or a stationary panel that combines drapery fabric with privacy sheers.
3. Provenance® Vertical Drapery
The intricate hand weaves and ripple fold look of the vertical drapery make Provenance® my next favorite vertical window shade and blind. Made from hand-woven from versatile, light-filtering reeds, grasses and woods, Provenance® Vertical Drapery transform sunlight into captivating design statements. Another great option for rooms with windows and doors. The woven wood fabric on the windows will go horizontal while on the door the fabric runs vertical as shown below.
4. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades with Vertiglide™
Here’s another vertical window shade and blind style that resembles the ripple-fold drapery. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades feature consistent folds and no exposed rear cords, keeping windows uncluttered. Choose from a variety of fabrics, linings, different fold styles and sizes.
The Vertiglide™ vertical operating system is the ideal choice for side-to-side openings, sliding glass doors or as a room divider.
