GALAXY BLINDS PRESENTS
Looking for vertical blinds? You’re in the right place.
Though one of the oldest window coverings on the market, vertical blinds remain a popular style in homes today and are perfect for large expanses of glass, i.e. bay windows, conservatories and patio doors. But – easy to operate and great for blocking unwanted sunlight – they are also ideal for windows in public and commercial environments, including schools and offices.
Galaxy Blinds is a leading manufacturer of made to measure blinds and have been working with residential and commercial clients across the North West for the past 27 years. Over this time, we have sourced a full range of high-quality vertical blinds for you at low prices. So, what are you waiting for? Take a look at our brochure and find the perfect style for your home or business.
Why choose vertical blinds?
Although frequently overlooked, vertical blinds are a versatile option and can benefit your property in a number of ways.
They are designed to hang from tracks and simply slide along. You can easily open them for an unobstructed view of outside your window – letting loads of natural light in – or close them to keep unwanted light and attention out. Arguably the best thing about vertical blinds is that you can easily adjust the slats (using the pull cord) – allowing light to filter softly whilst retaining your privacy.
Whether you’re looking to add shade, texture or warmth in the conservatory, living room, bathroom, kitchen or bedroom, vertical blinds are designed to go in every room within your home or office. In fact, they are the most economical way of covering larger windows and are incredibly easy to clean. Unlike off-the-shelf coverings, all it takes is a quick wipe down with a microfiber cloth – every so often – to keep your vertical blinds looking like new.
Here at Galaxy Blinds, we have a selection of modern, contemporary and traditional styles – not to mention an assortment of colours and fabrics for you to choose from. We even provide practical options, such as blackout vertical blinds, which effectively block out the sun to protect you from harmful UV rays and create the perfect sleep setting – ideal if you work night shifts.
Moving house for the first time? Fear not, we cater for all budgets and requirements here and have a special Eco range available – consisting of lots of different colours and patterns. This range is excellent value for fabric and perfect for the first time buyer who needs blinds along with various other things for their new home.
For those who want to make a statement, our vertical blinds are now available in the latest ‘Digital Print Designs’ – exclusive to Galaxy Blinds. For more details on how we can make your blinds personal to your home or business, feel free to get in touch with our team.

How do vertical blinds work?
It’s no secret that vertical blinds are a versatile, stylish and practical window dressing. They can be opened to the left or right-hand side of the window, from the centre outwards, or the outer edges moving towards the centre.
And the way vertical blinds work is simple.
There is a sliding mechanism that allows you to open and close the blind. Each slat is attached to a sliding piece that is fixed into the track that runs along the headrail.
Once you pull the cord or wand, the slats move in unison – until they form a neat stack at one side or entirely cover the glass expanse.
When opening or shutting vertical blinds, it’s a good idea to make sure that the blinds are open so that they don’t get stuck together and impede motion
Are vertical blinds right for me?
Vertical blinds combine the convenience and versatility of blinds with the effectiveness of curtains.
They are often used on wide windows and doors and unusual spaces (i.e. bay windows, bifold and patio doors, offices and conservatories) as the headrail can be adjusted to fit curved window recesses and the slats can be trimmed to different heights.
The best thing about vertical blinds is that they:
- are affordable
- can be adjusted to let light into your home while maintaining your privacy and keeping unwanted attention out
- come in an assortment of colours, fabrics and finishes (including blackout) – making them perfect for almost any room in the home or workplace
- are made to measure and expertly installed

Are vertical blinds easy to clean?
The simple answer is yes.
Although vertical blinds don’t trap dust like other blinds, as a result of hanging vertically, they will need a good clean once in a while. But you’ll be pleased to know that it isn’t too difficult to wash them by hand.
As tempting as it may be to clean the vertical slats whilst hanging on the rail, this increases the chances of them creasing. So, if possible you want to unclip them and unhook them from the rail.
Lay the fabric out on a clean, flat surface and grab a microfibre cloth and a bowl of hot soapy water. Using a damp cloth, wipe the blinds to remove any stains or dirt and make sure they are completely dry before rehanging them.
