Sheer Vertical Blinds
Our collection of Sheer Vertical Blinds not only offer a modern designer look for your home but they are also highly functional, reducing the glare from bright daylight as well as offering privacy. We also consider these voile vertical blinds to be a fantastic contemporary alternative to net curtains.
When you require a level of privacy but don't want to block out light entering the room or lose your window view, sheer vertical blinds are the perfect solution & are a stunning contemporary alternative to net curtains. The light voile fabric is not only highly practical & functional thanks to its light filtering & glare reducing properties, it also creates a luxurious & stylish designer look as a result of its soft & airy fabric.
By opting to use a vertical blind with sheer fabric you have maximum control over the light entering the room. Fully opening or closing the blinds ie. stacking the vanes to one side, allows you to completely filter the light or let it all in but with a vertical blind you can also partially open the blind to let a little through or simply tilt the vanes to your desired position to allow a little to creep through between each vane. A fantastic versatile window solution.
Voile vertical blinds will work beautifully in any room where you wish to let the daylight in. Most commonly they are used in living areas such as lounges, living rooms, dining rooms & kitchens as in most instances you will not require blackout or 100% privacy in these areas. With this being said, you can certainly use them in bedrooms to provide privacy during the day time but you will require another blind (preferably blackout) in addition to your sheer vertical to attain a good night's sleep & to stop the morning sun ruining your well deserved lie in!
Yes they are extremely simple to install. Your blind will come with everything you need to fit. They can be top or face fixed by using the appropriate supplied brackets. When you place your order, simply tell us whether you are top or face fixing & we will supply you with the required brackets. If you would like to know more about fitting your sheer vertical blind you can view the fitting instructions here.
Measuring for vertical blinds is easy providing you use a steel tape measure & measure accurately to the nearest millimetre. If you are fitting inside the recess then you will measure wall to wall for the width & top to window sill for the drop. We advise to measure in 3 places, top, middle & bottom for the width & left, middle & right for the height, as plastering & skimming will commonly cause your recess not to be as square as you think! In some instances measurements can differ by a number of centimetres! By providing us with the smallest measurements of your 3 width & 3 drop sizes this will ensure that the blind will fit within the space.
If you are fitting outside of the recess then you should measure the entire space you would like to cover. This measurement will need to include the top head rail so please ensure you add an adequate amount to the height measurement to consider this. It is completely at your discretion as to how much you would like the blind to overlap on the width but as a rule of thumb we advise that it will want to overlap by at least 10cm.
