Four Window Covering Solutions to Replace Your Old Vertical Blinds

Out with the old and in with the new! It might be time to finally say goodbye to your old, frail vertical blinds. If you are looking for another option to cover large windows or a sliding door, know 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.

Vertical Cellular Shade

Vertical cellular shades are a great option because they can be custom-made to fit any size window from small to a large sliding door. They are designed with “honeycomb-shaped pockets” which increase insulation and keep your room at a comfortable temperature. Their design will help prevent air from entering or escaping which can help you save money on your energy bill.  Since you are covering a larger window, it is important for complete light control. Vertical cellular shades come in four light control options, including sheer, light-filtering, room-darkening and blackout fabrics which offer you various levels of privacy. 

Sliding Track Panels

A modern and durable solution for a vertical blind 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 beautiful.

Roller Shades

Roller shades are one of the most popular and highly customizable window shade styles. That is why they are a wonderful option to replace old, outdated vertical blinds. They come in a wide variety of colors and fabrics 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. They feature more than 80 original prints, textures, and colors which will fit any room’s décor. Since roller shades do not function like vertical blinds, they can be motorized for your convenience. With a 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. 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. Budget Blinds’ exclusive Inspired Drapes® collection offers a variety of beautiful prints and patterns. 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 more coverage for your window.
