Alternatives to Vertical Blinds

Over the last few years many modern, but just as functional alternatives have come onto the market.

Best alternatives to vertical blinds

We’ll be sharing a few of our favorite options below, but be sure to take a look at the complete list of vertical blind alternatives at

 Woven Wood Grommet Panels

These are a hybrid between traditional fabric drapes and a folding door. They have the elegant look of drapes and are installed on a curtain rod, instead of the complicated track system that a folding door requires. These panels are made from sustainable, pesticide free bamboo, and will give you the peace of mind that you have made an environmentally conscious choice. This option will add texture to your room while still acting as a sun screen.

Sheerweave Sliding Panels

If you want to give a more modern look to large windows or glass walls, this is the perfect option, although it also works in smaller spaces such as patio doors where clean lines are desired. This new solar screen textile blocks glare and harmful UV rays without taking away from your view.

Bali VertiCell Shades

For wide windows and patio doors that need insulation from heat or cold, a cellular shade is the best option.  The shade can be opened from either side and collapses to just a few inches, making hardly noticeable when unused. The honeycomb design gives your door or window a stylish look and also provides insulation against sound.
