Window Treatments For Patio Doors
Patio doors/windows are usually very large; normally the size of the wall itself as they connect the outdoor paved seating area of the house to the interior. Choosing the right window treatment for the patio door is essential as it directly affects how more or less connected the indoor and outdoor seems to be. Vertical blinds are one of the most appropriate window treatments for patio doors for a variety of reasons.
They Play Up the Height
The height of the patio door is what differentiates it from a normal window. Putting vertical blinds on the patio door gives an impression of further elongation therefore suiting the functionality of the vertical design. Putting horizontal blinds in such a case would contradict and seem to cut down the height; thereby decreasing the openness that is required of such a window. Vertical blinds, on the other hand, due to being parallel to the window direction work in coherence.
Convenience of Use
Vertical blinds also allow for the convenient use of the door since they will not hinder in the opening and closing, especially when the door is sliding. While you have to roll up the horizontal blinds completely in order to use the door, vertical blinds, even opened a foot or so, can provide easy movement back and forth from the patio.
Added Control over Light and Direction
Vertical blinds provide a better control over light, meaning you have the independence to decide how much light you want inside during the daytime. While you have to move the horizontal blinds considerably high to allow a decent amount of light inside, vertical blinds, even slightly opened, illuminate the room significantly. Also, depending on what direction you turn the flaps of the blinds, direction and intensity of light coming inside can also be controlled.
There is a variety of other benefits that vertical blinds can offer. If you want to know more about what vertical blinds can do for your windows and wish to go through relevant options for your home, visit us www.marthasblinds.com.
