Graceful, elegant, and timeless, vertical blinds have been a familiar sight in homes for decades. Many of us may have fond memories of standing at the window, slats rattling around us as we waited for friends or dates to show up. Maybe you also remember a happy dog’s tail whacking a slat out of the holder to leave a gap in the blinds.
Vertical blinds have come a long, long way since those days. They have become a quiet, sturdy mainstay of a classic home aesthetic: Versatile enough for windows where you need a workhorse but elegant enough for common rooms where you want to impress.
