Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are a classic, affordable blinds choice that allow you to easily adjust light and privacy levels.

Benefits of Vertical Blinds

  • Vertical blinds can be the most affordable blinds that we sell, depending on the fabric chosen
  • There are hundreds of fabrics to choose from
  • Durable and long-lasting with proper care
  • Suitable for almost all windows, including very large windows
  • Can be custom-made for special and unusually-shaped windows
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Can be motorised to be controlled by a remote control or an app
  • Can be made with blackout fabrics to minimise light ingress
  • Can be made with dim-out fabric to reduce glare while allowing light to pass through
  • Dim-out fabrics can also reduce heat gains from the sun without blocking all light

Things to Consider about Vertical Blinds

  • Even with blackout fabric, you’ll still get light bleed around the louvres (panels) and around the window edges
  • When drawn open, the slats stack together which may obstruct part of one side of your window
  • The louvres may occupy around 130mm-200mm of your windowsill, and so roller blinds or Venetian blinds might be better suited if this is an issue
  • Weights and chains can get tangled if you have young children or pets - chainless weight options are available if this is an issue
  • Weights and chains can rattle in the wind when the window is open

More Information about Vertical Blinds

The simplistic and timeless design of Vertical blinds makes them a versatile addition to any window area. Ideal for any room in the home, providing privacy and style.

They are an excellent choice as the option to tilt and turn the louvres to any angle you need gives you as much privacy or light filtration as you need. In addition to this, you can further customise vertical blinds with the options of standard fabric, a dim-out fabric or blackout fabric, to get the exact effect you’re trying to achieve in your space.

Choose your style, texture, colour and pattern from a huge range of fabrics. There are hundreds of fabrics to choose from, and our expert team will help you find the one that is right for you.

All our vertical blinds are tailored to you and your specific needs and are all made by our expert staff in our local factory. Therefore, we can survey and then install your new vertical blinds, usually in around 1-2 weeks’ time from start to finish.

We do have a selection of vertical blind fabrics in stock (in limited colours and patterns only) that can be made and fitted the next day after the survey. This is only available upon special request and is subject to an additional fee.

Frequently Asked Questions about Vertical Blinds

How much do made-to-measure vertical blinds cost?

The cost depends on the width and height of the blind you need. See the basic costing guide below:

Estimated prices for vertical blinds on seven windows will range between £250 – £500 for our own range about £350-£1000 for our more custom range (dependent on size and style selected).

 

Do blackout vertical blinds block out all the light?

No. Blackout vertical blinds block about 90% of the light. No light passes through the fabric itself, however, there is some light bleed that comes around all edges and in between each slat. 

 

How long will it take to get my vertical blinds?

Usually about 1 week, however this depends on the fabric chosen.

 

Can I have them fitted the next day?

This is only available upon special request and from fabrics within our own range.

 

How should I care for my vertical blinds? 

Vertical blinds are easy to clean using a feather duster or a vacuum cleaner with an upholstery brush attachment. They can also be wiped down using either a clean, dry cloth or a clean, damp, white cloth to prevent colour run.

Some vertical blinds are machine washable at 40ºC, but you should always contact us first to find out, so we can provide specific washing instructions.

Had blinds and shutters fitted by Carl at Excell. Really nice guy and a brilliant fitter. He really took his time to make sure the shutters were fitted perfectly onto such awkward windows. Would definitely recommend. Thanks a lot Carl 👍🏻

Had blinds fitted today. The whole experience from start to finish was excellent! Appointment times to suit and Jac in the office kept me fully up to date through the whole process. The fitter Tom was really friendly and knowledgeable and done an amazing job on measuring & fitting.
Although I have a few local blind companies near me I travelled to Excell Blinds as they were recommended by our letting agent. We had to replace all the header rails for the vertical blinds in our rental property and I found them to be quick and very reasonably priced. Would definitely use them for blinds again. Staff were very nice and helpful too
