How To: Refresh Your Windows with Replacement Vertical Blind Slats

The What

Vertical blinds are among the most easy-to-maintain blind styles available. Not only are they hassle-free, they are also functional; their ability to effectively block out light and ensure privacy makes them a great all-rounder.

The Why

As brilliant as they are, these blinds feature hooks and holes that unfortunately can break over time, especially if you have a busy household or use your blinds often. Fortunately, you don’t have to run out and purchase a whole new set of blinds when something goes wrong.

The How

Replacing slats on vertical blinds is a really straightforward process. In order to fit your new slats, all you need is a vertical blind headrail fitted at the window or door in question for your new slats to perfectly fit into place.
 
All you need to do is count the number of existing slats or hanger truck clips, on your existing track for the quantity required and measure the fabric strip itself accurately from top to bottom for your drop. Our blinds are made to measure so you can rest assured that your new slats will perfectly fit your window space. Follow our handy vertical slats measuring guide.

The Fun Part

 
We have a large range of colours available, so you’re sure to find something to complement the current scheme in your home. Take your pick from timeless, elegant neutrals to bold prints and jazzy patterns. Many of our slats also come in textured materials, great for those looking for something a little more quirky. Plus, you can mix and match different vertical blind slats to create your unique combination.
