The versatility of these blinds makes them a perfect solution to be used on top of windows apart from other available alternatives. Custom vertical blinds come in a lot of different forms that are specially made to go with trickier structures in modern architecture. In this blog post, we will look at a few main types of custom-built vertical blinds, their installation, and useful tips on taking care.

Vertical blinds made from wood

Wood blinds have an aesthetic appeal of their own. They bring about grace along with a calming aura to the whole space. The houses that have an interior that focuses more on nature depiction look great when complemented with wooden vertical blinds.

Vertical blinds are liked for the reason that they are soft and that they also have a soft look. Another cool thing about these blinds is that they come in hundreds of colour palettes and graphic designs. You can find a huge range of graphical patterns and artistic designs that the fabric blinds come imprinted in. Further choices like woven, clear, sheer, and partially sheer fabrics add to the vast options, thus giving you great versatility.

Metal blinds are basically made from aluminum. These blinds are another good alternative as they are cost-effective, with a styling that can complement various types of interior designs and room colour schemes. A lot of diversity in terms of room designs can be satiated using vertical metal blinds in their different forms.

Installation of vertical blinds

No matter the type of blind, they offer several benefits once installed. The phase requires you to mark down bracket positions at the base of the headrail. The bottom rail should lie almost 2 ¼ inches from the ground and 1 ⅞ inches from the bottom of the window.

In the second phase, set the head rail in place by inserting the front edge into the mounting clips. Then release the head rail and open the cord weight afterward.

The final phase requires you to wrap the control cord around the guides so that the weight pieces are pushed together. Then you turn the stems and push the louvers into them while pulling down – so the louver is connected to the stem hook. After this, place and push the valance clip on the head rail’s end.

Tips on taking care of vertical blinds

The vertical blinds made from aluminum, faux, and wood should be dusted regularly. The dusting should be done with a feather every six to nine days. When starting the dusting, always begin at the top and go down gradually. However, fabric blinds should be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner. While you do the vacuum, make sure to keep it on a low setting.

To remove stains, use the minimum amount of water. Also, make sure that you do not rub hard. For rubbing, a tool like a dry or rubber sponge works best when cleaning stains on vertical blinds.
