Vertical blinds are very popular in the modern home due to their stylish persona and lack of frivolity. They are available in a variety of different colors and can adapt to suit most types of decorative schemes, from cutting edge modernity, to a more traditional look. As well as in the home, many offices and businesses adopt vertical blinds for their windows as they look great, plus they are excellent at controlling light. However, like any other blind in the home or office, a vertical blind can sometimes be afflicted by minor damage, which requires the purchase of vertical blinds parts.
When your vertical blind DOES finally succumb to wear and tear, it is often tempting to consider purchasing a new blind to replace it, but with a little time spent hunting for the necessary vertical blinds parts, it is always cheaper to attempt to repair the blind instead. Most of the time, the blind can easily be repaired for a fraction of the cost of a new blind, and the satisfaction you will gain from doing the work yourself will more than make up for the inconvenience of having to fiddle around with small parts.
Fortunately there are plenty of retailers who stock vertical blinds parts should the worst happen and your blind requires a minor repair. Unless your vertical blind is so badly damaged that a repair is uneconomical and impractical, you should be able to source vertical blind replacement parts, usually direct from the manufacturer, from a number of online retailers.
Replacement vertical blind slats are the ideal way to give your window a new look without going to the expense of replacing the entire blind head rail. You can swap one color for a new one and your blind will look as good as new. Alternatively, if a few of your existing slats have become damaged or discolored, you can source some replacement ones in an identical color and fabric to replace them.
A spare parts pack will provide 2 bottom weights, 2 slat hangers, plus a 4-meter weight chain. This offers a selection of necessary spare parts that will fix most blinds. A vertical blind slat hanger replacement pack will provide around 10 replacement slat hangers, which slide into the top of the slats, which will allow them to be hung from the head rail.
A replacement bottom weight chain pack is always useful as this is the part of vertical blinds most susceptible to damage. The thin plastic chain tends to be easily caught on legs, furniture, and pets, and is usually the first part of a vertical blind to be damaged. The blind will still function after the chain has broken, but the slats will not tilt as efficiently and the blind will begin to possess a rather unkempt demeanor.
For a more comprehensive repair, a replacement vertical blind head rail can be purchased in several different widths. It comes with a metal control chain and easy to use peg attachments, plus the overhead fixing brackets.
