You may find after some consideration that vertical blinds may not be appropriate for every room of your home. Privacy is important in certain rooms of your home such as your bathroom and bedroom, and not so important in other rooms like the kitchen and living room. Studying how the vertical blinds function can help you determine if they will provide enough privacy for you. Choosing vertical blinds that are made from a thick, stiff material, and that close more tightly can help to preserve privacy in certain rooms.

How much light you want in a room is another important function to consider. You want your vertical blinds to make a statement of style in your home, but you also want them to serve a purpose. For most individuals, that purpose is to help keep light out at certain times, let it in at others, and provide privacy at night. If you want more open and warm rooms then you may consider a vertical blind that is made out of lighter material with the ability to open fully to allow for more light. To keep light out in warm weather consider a weightier vertical blind that seals the window allowing less light to come through.

Colour And Texture

Obviously, you are not buying your vertical blinds strictly for their functionality; you want to choose blinds that are also a reflection of your personal style. To help make a .statement in your home, and to compliment the interior design of your rooms, you need to take into account the color, texture, and material that your window blinds are made of. If you choose vertical blinds just for their functionality, you will become board and possibly disgusted with your decision.

The color of your vertical blinds should complement the room that they are in. If you have a similar style and color scheme throughout your home, then choosing the same color that will either match or compliment it for the blinds in each room may work well. However, if your style is different in various areas of your home, then you may need to consider purchasing a variety of colored vertical blinds for each separate room.

Colour can also contribute to light control and privacy as well. Lighter coloured vertical blinds allow more light to pass through. Remember dark coloured blinds provide more privacy than light coloured ones. 


Material and texture are probably the two biggest factors to consider when choosing the cosmetic design of your vertical blinds. From visual appeal to privacy, the material you choose affects every function of your vertical blinds. Blinds made from lighter fabrics and wood, for instance, could provide a very pleasing visual effect but are not very good at keeping out light or providing privacy.

On the other hand, blinds made from a sleek and smooth vinyl or metal may provide more light control and privacy, but may not provide as many styles and color choices as a fabric blind might. A good balance of the two is to consider a vertical blind made from a thick, stiff fabric, which will provide privacy while allowing you more choices with color and patterns.
