What Are my Alternatives for Vertical Blinds?

Vertical Blinds for Your Central Florida Home

Here in Central Florida we have lots of sliding glass doors that provide easy access to the sunny outdoors.  For many years, the only window treatment option for these doors was vertical blinds, but you just doesn’t see them as modern or stylish.  What to do? What to do?

Vertical Blinds Are Smart

Let’s start by addressing the functionality of vertical blinds. They work beautifully to cover a large openings like sliding glass doors, giving you light control options. They are also a very budget friendly option. So for those of you who have vertical blinds, don’t dismay. You have made a very practical selection that will last for years. If you bought the blinds through Made in the Shade Blinds & More, you have probably made a pretty stylish decision as well since vertical blinds come in many colors, textures and fabrics.

Woven Wood Shades

Averte Natural Drape is great alternative to Vertical Blinds. They can be used on very wide openings. We recently installed these on a 16′ opening.

Vertical cellular shades are another option for sliding glass doors. They can be paired with traditional cellular shades for a complete room. Best part? They are very energy efficient.

Sliding Panels

Sliding panels come wide and narrow, sheer and opaque, neutral and flamboyant. Let Made in the Shade show you all the beautiful options.
