Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds have Vertical panels that can be adjusted to control the amount of light that enters the room. The blinds can also be pulled to one or both sides of the window if you want to allow all the light to enter. Vertical blinds are available in different widths and lengths, and they are a popular choice for full-length windows, conservatory windows or patio doors.

Many people use Vertical blinds to control the amount of light that enters a conservatory or sunroom in order to protect the furniture from damaging sunlight. Vertical blinds can be bought in a range of colours, textures and patterns, while many of the fabrics are machine washable.

When it comes to measuring and installing blinds, there are a few things you should remember. To get accurate measurements, you should use a steel ruler, and it is worth bearing in mind that the blind should be unobstructed when it is fully extended to allow it to hang freely.

Venetian blinds

Perhaps the most well known and most popular type of blind, Venetian blinds   have horizontal panels and are made of Wood or Aluminium, which can be adjusted   to control the amount of sunlight allowed into the room. Venetian blinds   are available in various widths and lengths, Blindology Blinds offer made-to-measure     Venetian blinds.

These types of blinds are so well loved because they offer a clean, uncluttered look and you can choose a style or material to compliment the look of your room. There are many options from dark Wood Venetian blinds to striking metallic blinds.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are made from opaque or vinyl fabric that is wrapped around   a dowel, which can be rolled up or down by using a cord system. Roller blinds   are particularly popular in rooms where you might want complete privacy,   such as a bathroom or bedroom.
