Vertical blinds may have made their debut in the ’80s, but we tell you, they are far from outdated.

They still make for classy plus affordable window treatments. In this guide, we share with you a list of durable and stylish vertical blinds that make for beautiful window coverings to spruce up any room in your home.

Vertical blinds can look spectacular on large windows, sliding doors and patio doors. These are some of the most stylish vertical blind options for 2020.

The Top 5 Vertical Window Treatment Options

Our top 5 options come from the well-known brand, Hunter Douglas. They provide quality products that are durable and provide a chic and modern appeal to your living space. Take look:

1. LUMINETTE® PRIVACY SHEERS

The name says it all. The sheer fabric on these vert blinds creates a soft luminescent effect with the option of having complete privacy from the outside world.  The light control feature is provided by the 180° functionality of the vertical vanes.

These Privacy Sheers are some of the most elegant options available. They provide a stunning array of amazing colors and fabrics to choose from.

2. CADENCE® SOFT VERTICAL BLINDS

These blinds come with a cozy-home feel with their long-hanging, folded drapes look, but with the fuss-free functionality of being blinds.

With their curved shape to appear like drapes, these blinds come with an added benefit: they are a noise-absorbing to make your home haven even more peaceful.

3. SKYLINE® GLIDING PANELS

Windows offering a vast view of the outside elements would benefit from these luxurious window panels. They are sleek and modern to make a statement in your home.

Open them wide to enjoy unobstructed views. Keep them closed and enjoy the sophisticated fabric designs they offer.

4. SOMNER® CUSTOM VERTICAL BLINDS

These are a perfect choice to customize your home just the way you like it. Hunter Douglas offers many finishes and fabrics for customers to choose from.

Built to be customizable, the versatility makes them ideal to fit non-standard windows. These blinds are really made with you in mind!

6. LEVOLOR’S NUWOOD™ FAUX WOOD BLIND

Levolor’s NuWood blinds give the appearance of real wood shutters but are made with a more durable, high-quality material that will not warp, crack or fade. NuWood makes these blinds ideal for areas of the home more susceptible to moisture, like the bathroom or kitchen.

This set up is easy to use with a wand and tassel and comes with a decorative valance. Package options allow customers to select the most appealing styles

7. BELLA VIEW ADVANTAGE VINYL VERTICAL BLIND

This one made our list because of the economic value. At an affordable price, customers get a pretty easy install and a nice looking finished product for their home.

The blinds block the light and open nicely for a full beautiful view.

8. BELLA VIEW  TRADEMARK FABRIC VERTICAL BLIND

Fabric on the window treatments creates an intimate, home-comfort feel. The fabric lends to a softer look than PVC, vinyl and aluminum options.

The array of textures and colors that are available add a beautiful touch to any room.

9. BALI VERTICAL BLINDS

Bali provides a nice line of options of vertical blinds including four different makes: wood, vinyl, fabric, and sheer vinyl.

The wood blinds are made of a North American hardwood and really add character to a set of patio doors.

The sheer vinyl window coverings create that elegant look, letting the morning’s soft sun glow sneak through, or keeping you cool from the hot afternoon sun.

Bali’s look is simple and clean with a dash of creative aesthetics to liven up any living space.

10. HAMPTON BAY VERTICAL BLINDS

Hampton Bay, known as the house-brand of Home Depot, is a familiar name in the home improvement industry. Since it is widely available, we thought we would include it in our list.

Hampton Bay offers faux wood vertical blinds as well as an embossed plastic option. The plastic takes advantage of a fabric coated blind as they are easier to care for and clean.

Hampton Bay offers many different styles and sizes to suit your liking, and parts are easily accessible if replacements are needed.

11. PROJECT SOURCE 3.5-IN CORDLESS VINYL VERTICAL BLINDS

Add a modern touch with these blinds. They offer a nice light filtering effect to complement your room.

What we like is that they can be mounted inside or outside of the window frame, based on your preference. They can also be easily be trimmed to fit any size window as well.

The cordless feature is key for safety when children and pets are in the home too.

What is the standard size for vertical blinds?

There may be standard window sizes, but a curveball gets thrown in with each home’s varying framing and/or drywall surrounding the windows. A reputable window treatment company will measure each window to make sure the vertical blinds fit perfectly.

What’s convenient about these products is that once installed, individual slats can easily be replaced if need be without a whole new installation of the product.
