The Benefits of Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds open and close horizontally, making them the perfect blinds for patio doors, sliding doors and extra-wide windows (up to 192” wide). There are also a lot more advantages in choosing vertical blinds:

Stylish Finishes and Textures

Vertical blinds are available in a variety of fabrics and materials, making it simple to find the perfect choice for any room or style. The various finishes all promise a high-end look and feel, as well as quality craftsmanship.

Range of Colour Choices

Vertical blinds can serve different purposes in different rooms. In some rooms, they may work best as an understated addition in a neutral colour. In other rooms, like a living room, a darker shade may be best to create a contrast and add flair. Vertical blinds come in as many as 50 different shades.


Budget is an important factor for just about everyone, so it’s an added bonus that the practicality of patio door blinds is matched by affordability. With varying options ranging from basic to luxurious, there is something to suit every style and price point. Plus, all vertical blind options have one thing in common regardless of materials or cost: quality!


Vertical blinds are among the most versatile in terms of window treatments. They are ideal as patio door blinds, or for sliding doors and oversized windows. They glide easily and are simple to operate.

Easy to clean and maintain

Vertical blinds are easy to clean and maintain over time. Vinyl and faux wood options can easily be wiped down and luxurious fabrics can be spot treated. Because each slat is individually placed, it’s simple to remove one slat at a time to lay flat and clean.

Customizable stacking

Depending on the room or personal preference, stacking can be customized. Slats can stack to the left, right, centre, or split to both sides at once.

Light Control

Adjusting the amount of light entering the room is a breeze with both the cord or wand controllers. Slats can adjust to nearly any angle and go from blackout to light filtering and everything in between.

How They Work

A practical feature of the vertical patio door blinds is that they can be tilted open just like a horizontal blind. To let light in or out, simply turn the tilt rod/control to the open or closed position.

Vertical blinds also have the flexibility to stack in a wide range of positions. One method is the standard left or right stack, which means that the slats, or vanes, all draw open to the left side or the right side when you open your vertical door blind. Vertical blinds also offer a centre stack option, which pulls the blinds in from the outer ends of the patio door blind, stacking the slats in the center of the door or window. There is also the opposite stack option, which does the reverse – it opens the vertical door blinds from the centre, stacking an even number of slats to both sides.

Different Types of Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are available in a variety of materials, from Vinyl, to Faux Wood made of high-quality composite wood material, to honeycomb/cellular construction or luxurious Designer Fabrics. Here are some of the different types of vertical blinds to choose from:

Panel Track Blinds

For a modern look for sliding glass doors and large windows, Panel Track Blinds are a unique variation of verticals that are both practical and stylish. From light filtering to blackout fabrics, these smooth gliding panels can be customized to suit your needs. Their sleek design and cordless lift system make them a safe option, too.

Why Choose Vertical Blinds?

Vertical blinds are a classic for a reason. They are practical and affordable, making them an easy choice for many homeowners. Over the years, vertical patio door blinds and window blinds have become even more versatile with more fabric and colour choices. They can blend in seamlessly with nearly any décor style and customizable features make them as stylish as they are useful.
