Best Options for Replacement Vertical Blinds

Vertical Blinds in Bedroom

While on the look-out for options to cover large windows or sliding glass doors, keep in mind that there are other selections than just verticals. Not sure what they are? Well, don’t worry. Budget Blinds is giving you four alternative window covering solutions so you can update your old blinds and completely transform your home space.

Vertical Cellular Shades

Vertical cellular shades are a great option because they are extremely practical yet stylish, adding just the right touch of glam to instantly elevate a room’s appeal! But let’s discuss the practicality aspect first. If a window treatment is not doing what it’s expected to, the style wouldn’t matter much. Would it?

Firstly, our vertical cellular shades can be custom-made to fit any size windows from small to large and sliding doors. Secondly they are designed with ‘honeycomb-shaped pockets’ which increase insulation and keep your room at a comfortable temperature. This is a blessing, especially if you live in a region with extreme temperatures.

Moreover, their design will help prevent air from entering or escaping which can help save money on your energy bill. Lastly, since you’re covering a large window, complete light control is important. Vertical cellular shades come in four light control options, including sheer, light-filtering, and room-darkening, and blackout fabrics which offer you various levels of privacy. They’re also available in custom configurations like side stack, split stack, and free-floating to allow you to customize your privacy levels and view.

What about the style though? Our stylish vertical cellular shades come in an extensive range of cell sizes, fabrics, colors and opacities, allowing you to mix and match to complement your unique home décor! The shades’ unique orientation of cellular fabric is perfect for wide windows and patio doors.

Sliding Track Panels

A modern and durable solution for vertical blinds is sliding panel track blinds. They are over-sized panels, available in different widths and consistent overlay. They are simple, clean and stylish and a unique option to replace verticals. With a wide selection of popular fabrics, they can be made for a large window, sliding door or even as room dividers.

If you are looking for an eco-friendly option for a window treatment, sliding panel track blinds also come in natural woven wood materials. They are made from 100% organic materials which help the environment while making your window look beautiful. Choose from unique patterns and rich tones. The sliding panel track blinds are also available in a range of trendy fabrics. So whether you’re looking to create a rustic old world charm or a modern appeal, our sliding track panels’ collection has got you covered! They’re extremely practical too, with an enhanced energy efficiency, sun protection, and lighting control.

Roller Shades

Providing a modern and sleek effect, roller shades  are one of the most popular and highly customizable window shade styles. They are a wonderful option to replace old, outdated vertical blinds and create a welcoming new space. They come in a wide variety of gorgeous colors and fabrics, including grass-like weaves and plenty of light-filtering options for flexible light control.

Budget Blinds’ exclusive Inspired Shades™ collection offers soft, natural woven styles and decorative roller shades in the hottest fashion trends. Choose the stylistic effect of your choice from contemporary to classic, with more than 240 decorative fabric options and over 100 styles with openness ranging from 1% to 25% of sun protection. You can further enhance the décor by pairing them with drapery or by creating a custom designer touch with stunning decorative valances, available in several inspiring colors. Or you can create a custom cornice with customized detailing and design, for an out-of-the world and elaborately decorated space. The choices are endless when it comes to the aesthetic effect, style, and protection and privacy control of roller shades.

Since roller shades do not function like vertical blinds, they can be motorized for your convenience, making them perfect for multiple or hard to reach windows. With the touch of a button, you can lower or raise your roller shade. There are a variety of control options from wireless wall switches to handheld remotes. In addition, from multiple options like continuous loop, smart-pull, and cordless lift, whichever option you choose will provide you with instant light control and privacy. Motorized roller shades will provide a safer environment for homes with children and pets.


A chic way to replace vertical blinds is drapery. Drapery can completely cover your window or be pulled to the side for a more open view. Budget Blinds offers everything when it comes to drapery, including ready-made panels, valances, cornices, decorative drapery hardware and motorization. Drapes will look stunning and provide you with UV protection and great insulation when closed. Drapery can also be layered with blinds or shutters for added coverage and insulation for your window.

Budget Blinds’ exclusive Inspired Drapes® collection offers a stunning variety of beautiful and exclusive designer fabrics imported from Italy. Add to this an array of textures, prints, patterns, and colors from bold to calming neutrals. You can create the unique effect that you desire, from subtle to dramatic with Budget Blinds’ options to customize drapes and accessorize them with beautiful drapery hardware, curtain rods, and silk and linen curtain panels. We even offer premium pillows and bedding to extend the aesthetic effect to cover the entire room.

Lastly draperies are also available in a motorized option to create a safe environment for children and pets. For enhanced light control, typically required in bedrooms and home theater rooms, we also present light filtering and room darkening liners.

As can be seen, replacing your old vertical blinds is easy, with options ranging from vertical cellular shades and sliding panel tracks to sheer vertical blinds and designer-inspired draperies. These stylish options will not only allow you to control the privacy, view, sun block, and lighting control as per your requirement but also provide the style and effect that will perfectly match the stylistic vision for your home!
