Chester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 22, 2011 -- Vertical or horizontal? That is the question we get asked time after time for our customers. When we talk about Vertical blinds, we have come a long way from the old office style blinds seen in many a 1960's style office. Gone are the rough, dust collecting fabrics only available in the most drab colours. Today's Vertical blinds are thinner and the fabrics are smother than their predecessors. Although the traditional cream and white blinds are available, either in a plain fabric or various subtle patterns. We also offer very vivid and bold blinds, such as lime, Cranberry, Peach and Purple rain as an example. In our sample books, we carry nearly 300 different fabrics for you to choose from. We also offer a mix and match service, where you can have alternating louvres from say a patterned louvre to an unpatterned louvre of the same colour, a very fetching design. So no more thinking that today's Vertical blinds will make your home look like an office.
When we come to horizontal blinds there are a lot of different types of blinds to consider. We start with the humble Roller blind. In its basic form this blind is the simplest form of window covering and will give you privacy, protection from UV rays to prevent your furnishings discolouring, thermal benefits to help you keep your room warm in the winter and cool in the summer and security against burglary. You get quite a lot from such a basic blind. We offer over 350 different fabrics to choose from here, again from the plain and simple to the most bold, vivid and modern fabric which would look well suited to today's modern apartments that are springing up. Your Roller blind can be customised with shapes, Café Rods, Pulls, Clip Rings, Wooden bottom bars and various types of braiding. Again you can have simple and plain blinds, subtle blinds with a hint of colour or you can make you blind a feature and let it stick out, the choice is all yours. We also offer blackout roller blinds which are perfect for your bedroom and a good nights sleep.
Deva Blinds Chester also carry a large range of Venetian blinds, either in aluminium or wood. Wooden blinds are very popular today and feel at home in modern and traditional houses. There are two ranges iWood Blinds that are made of natural wood and Finewood Blinds that are a composite blind that are manufactured using recycled wood fibre that is laminated and compressed together. The benefit to this is that wood by its natural product varies in colour, absorbs moisture and can warp. Finewood blinds are the only blinds that have no shading or discolouration and no warping. All wooden blinds come with a wooden matching pelmet and corded raise and lower controls and tilt controls. Woven ladder tapes can be used to finish off you blind to perfection.
When you come to aluminium Venetian blinds forget about the blinds that your Grandparents had, white and bulky dust collectors. These blinds start with the sleek 16mm version. These blinds a re so fine that they appear invisible when open. The next size is 25mm and this is the most popular these days. Again around 300 colours to choose from and no it doesn't have to be white! We also offer 35mm and 50mm blinds which can be used when lighting levels are of a concern, the larger the slat, the more light it will let into a room. So lot's of options to choose from here.
Another option for a horizontal blind is a Roman blind. These are the creme de la creme of blinds. Made with stunning fabrics, these elegant blinds will finish off your windows with great style. All these blinds come fully lined and can incorporate a blackout lining for bedrooms. From the outside all you see is the white lining, so no problems with different fabrics in different rooms. These blinds are supplied with an aluminium head rail and the fabric is Velcroed to it, enabling you to remove the fabric and have it dry cleaned as necessary.
So what is the best type of blind for my particular window ? This is usually solved by the size of your window or more importantly the height and width of your window. If your window is higher than it is wide horizontal blinds usually look better and if your window is wider than its height a Vertical blind is the recommendation. At the end of the day though, you want a quality blind that you will enjoy for a long time. Happy blind choosing.
