What are Panel Blinds?
Panel blinds are essentially a variant of vertical blinds, but with much larger slats. Accented with a decorative rod, panel blinds are a tried, true, and elegant solution that look great in almost any application, especially for the living room and bedroom. Panel blinds look best on larger windows and sliding glass or french doors. They have a lengthening effect, and when placed slightly above the top of the window or door, can even make your room look more spacious
When choosing your hardware, remember to consider the mood of your room: A heavier curtain rod will look more formal and dramatic, while a lighter rod will look breezier. A good rule of thumb? If your curtains have a fairly busy pattern, lean towards a less adorned curtain rod so as not to overwhelm your window.
