I just bought a new house and I found myself in need of finding a new set of blinds to put into the house. I kept looking and looking and could not decide on a kind that I liked best. While visiting a friends house I found the perfect blinds for my house! I asked her what the blinds were called but she did not know. I spent the next few weeks looking for these blinds for they really were perfect! Turns out they were called upvc vertical sliders. These things are absolutely great. They look sheek and elegant in my living room and anyone that visits my house asks me where I got them. I do not regret my choice to buy these, not even for a minute. If you are in the market for new blinds you should absolutely look into these. They are relatively inexpensive and look like thousand dollar blinds.
