Our durable Durawood Vertical Blinds feature easy rotating slats plus smooth traversing operation with wand control. An included square valance hides the headrail, protects the top of your blind from dust, and gives the sleek look of wood.
Inside mounted treatments are installed within your window frame, creating a finished, built-in look without concealing your molding. Inside mount is also suggested if you plan to layer another treatment, such as Drapery, a Valance or Cornice, over your blinds or shades. Inside mount is strongly recommended if your windows aren't "square".
Outside mounted treatments are installed on the wall or molding surrounding your windows. An outside mount is often used to make a window look larger, to mask flows in a window or adjacent wall, or when there's not enough frame depth for inside mounting.
Durawood Vertical Blinds come with a standard square (shown left) valance concealing the headrail, and protects the top of your blinds from dust that could interefere with smoooth operation, and enhances the sleek wood-tone look of your window treatment.
Fabric and Classic Vertical Blinds come with a standard round valance which conceals the headrail and maximizes privacy + light control.
Stack Position: When opened, your Vertical Blind slats will "stack" together at the outer edge of the treatment. You may choose, as a no cost option, to have your blinds stack to the left, to the right, or on both sides (Split Draw). One-way Left or Right Stack will have controls on the side that the blind opens to. Split Draw will open from the center of treatment, then stack evenly and compactly to each side. Wand control ordered with Split Draw is an upgrade charge, $12.
Control Postion: Select either left- or right-side location for your control position, taking into consideration your room configuration, ease of reaching control wand behind furniture, etc. Split Draw blinds will come with two center-mounted wands.
Extension Brackets and Spacer Blocks project your shades away from the mounting surface, allowing them to clear obstacles such as door handles, window operating cranks and molding. Extension Brackets add 1" to your shade's clearance; Spacer Blocks add 3/8". Both style brackets may only be used for outside mount shade installations.
