Measuring for Vertical Blinds

Vertical Blinds are commonly used to cover sliding doors and large windows. They provide complete privacy when closed but can be easily rotated to allow some light in or a complete view outside. Available in a wide range of materials, colours and fabrics, vertical blinds are a great practical and stylish window furnishing option.
