Vertical Shades Buying Guide

If you're shopping for custom window coverings for large, expansive windows, sliding glass doors or even room dividers, consider vertical window treatments. Vertical blinds and shades are a great fit for wide widths, and function by opening from side to side rather than top to bottom.

Vertical Shades Buying Guide

Vertical Shadings

Vertical Shadings

Vertical shadings have the look and feel of drapery, but work like vertical blinds. Soft fabric vanes are attached to the sheer fabrics to softly diffuse light and views when open, and provide privacy when closed. When full, unobstructed views are desired, vertical shadings will draw back and stack neatly out of the way.

Features and Benefits

  • Seamless coordination with horizontal shadings
  • GREENGUARD® certified
  • UV protection
  • Antistatic
  • Stain-resistant
  • Trouble-free performance
  • Minimal care
  • Assembled in America


Special Options

  • One-way draw (stacks to the right or to the left)
  • Split draw (opens in the center of the window)

Folding Panels

Folding Panels

Folding panels use natural shade patterns turned vertically, enabling these natural materials to work as a door or divider. Use 15% fullness for extra luxury. When closed, the panel creates gentle vertical folds; when drawn open, the panel stacks neatly to one or both sides of the window. A color-coordinated wood rail is used to draw the panel and includes decorative edge banding along the top and bottom of the panel.

Features and Benefits

  • Seamless coordination available with natural shades
  • Child-safe, no cords
