Horizontal Window Blinds in Toronto

Modern homeowners like you need quality and reliable window treatments that last long, evolve with changing interior design trends, and, most of all — withstand heat, moisture, and seasonal highs and lows. Day in and day out, you’ll need to see some sun but avoid the harsh glare, as well as obscure the view of your home’s interior when you need it most. For these, you’ll need reliable, but budget-friendly window treatments.

Window blinds are some of the most popular window coverings for decades now, and it’s because they can be just as stylish and functional as they are innovative. While many homeowners are used to blinds that move from one side to another, horizontal blinds are becoming a popular option for their compact, versatile — and even timeless — design. Crafted for windows that are a staple feature of contemporary design, horizontal blinds can be lowered or raised as you please, providing complete light control and privacy with a sleek finish.

About Horizontal Blinds

Unlike vertical blinds that move from side to side, horizontal blinds are typically llifted up from the bottom using a cord-and-pulley system. These complement windows without much room for vertical blinds to move, instead offering unobstructed views and daylight when gathered at the top.

For best results, horizontal blinds are typically crafted with 2″ slats as these allow natural light to stream through the windows gently and allow you to enjoy the view from outside, without the blinding glare and privacy risk. Simply tug on the cord to raise or lower the blinds depending on the time of day, allowing you to switch from light to privacy as you please.

Durable Style

Horizontal blinds are engineered to precision, resulting in a functional design that’s elevated to the window level. It makes them much less vulnerable to wear and tear than other blinds, such as those made of aluminum.

These blinds are simple and low maintenance, making them a long-lasting, hassle-free option for homeowners. Simply open the slats for light to stream in, or close them for increased filtering level and total privacy.

Long-Term Quality

Not many window treatments have stood the test of time, but horizontal blinds have cemented a reputation for being a true classic. That’s because these blinds are not at all boring or cheap — they’re crafted with high-quality and durable materials and come in a range of colours, textures, and styles to match home interior design trends as these change over the years. Choose horizontal blinds for long-lasting function, low maintenance use, and sleek, stylish interiors to match your contemporary lifestyle.

We have used this company in both our homes. Excellent customer service and love our shutters. They are professional and great craftsmanship. I had a tricky window and their recommendations and the end result were perfect! We would use them again.
Anne Hufmman
Product is wonderful and I wish we had installed the blinds sooner. The whole experience from the measurements to the installation was professional, friendly and extremely well done. This will be my go to company for future blinds.

I got new automated shades in my condo in Toronto downtown - excellent work done by Michael / Charles at a fair price. Everything done on the schedule, no headaches. I highly recommend Windows Blind Direct
Esme Pombo
First time that I contacted this company, but I was very happy with them. I would recommend this company for any blind job, they did a fenominal job, and were quick.
Irene Coelho
Amazing experience, after 5 years needed batteries and minor adjustments to exiting blinds and they helped . Thank you for your great customer service. Especially Michael
Deirdre McMurdy
This is the second time we've worked with Window Blinds Direct - which a testament in itself. Michael and his team are very responsive and engaged. They do through assessment of the job, provide honest feedback on the best options, and then provide exceptional results. We could not be more delighted with both the California shutters and the shades they have installed in our home. Highly recommend!
I'm very happy with the custom blinds I ordered over 3 years ago. Recently I decided to change one window from light-filtering to blackout and Michael was very responsive over email. Within a month of my initial email Charles installed the new blackout blinds, which is very impressive considering it's a custom order.
