How to Match Horizontal and Vertical Window Coverings

For a consistent look on windows and doors, many of our clients are searching for vertical window coverings that match our most popular horizontal blinds and shades. In homes throughout the Charleston area, it’s common to have a large room that has both average sized windows as well as very large window or sliding glass door. With so many options available now for vertical shades, there are several ways to match your horizontal and vertical window coverings. Here at The Shutter Guy, we’ll bring our mobile showroom to your home to show you your options.

Honeycomb Shades

Horizontal option: Standard horizontal honeycomb shades are one of the most popular and versatile horizontal window treatments on the market. The honeycomb design offers a clean and sophisticated look in the window while also providing a layer of insulation, improving the energy efficiency of your home. Shades come in a large variety of colors, fabrics, shapes and operating systems.

Vertical option: Your favorite fabrics, colors, and styles of honeycomb shades are also available in a vertical application, providing a uniform look from your windows to your doors.

Sheer Shades

Horizontal option: Soft, flowing sheer shades are made with vanes that float between two sheers. Tilting the vanes allows you to control light and privacy. Horizontal sheer shades are available in 2, 3 or 4 inch vane sizes. Smaller vanes are better for small windows and larger vanes work better for larger windows to provide more view-through.

Vertical option: Sheer shades are also available in a vertical application, perfect for sliding glass doors and wide windows. These vertical sheer shades are available in an array of sheer and drapery-like fabrics for privacy and light-control.

Roman Shades

Horizontal option: Today’s contemporary Roman shades are available in 4” and 6” traditional and tailored fold sizes, three opacity options and a wide variety of fabrics, colors and textures. Shades roll, stack, and traverse with consistent folds and no exposed rear cords.

Vertical option: Privacy sheers complement Roman shades nicely by pairing similarly styled, colored and textured fabrics, making it easy to mix and match with your Roman shade.

Roller Shades

Horizontal option: Roller shades are a simple but stylish window covering available in hundreds of colors, patterns and fabric choices from sheer to opaque. Coordinating top treatments conceal the fabric roll for clean look.

Vertical option: Panel track blinds look great with roller shades These versatile window coverings can also be as a room divider. Fabric, colors and textures coordinate well with roller and screen shades.
