A great alternative to vertical blinds for large windows or patios is Panel Blinds.
Here’s how panel blinds are a great alternative to vertical blinds and patio doors.
Panel blinds are made up of up to 8 panels of fabric which run in channels on a discrete headrail. The panels slide along the headrail either one way, stacking to one side, or splitting in the middle and stacking on either side. This enables you to completely free up your window. There are two ways to control the blinds, either by cord or by using a wand.
Panel blinds can also be hung outside of the window or patio door recess so that the panels stack either side of the recess and don't take up any of the window/door space.
When closed the panels stand side by side with a slight overlap between panels, to create a full fabric screen.
Panel blinds have emerged as a stylish alternative to vertical blinds for large windows and patio areas, offering numerous advantages in terms of style, light control, privacy, space utilization, and maintenance.
