How to Find Replacement Vertical Blinds


You can find replacement vertical blinds to fill in those "missing teeth" in the window. The purpose of vertical blinds is to cover a window to block out the sun and elements, and to provide privacy. If you have missing vertical blinds, both of those purposes is lacking. Virtually any place you search and find replacement vertical blinds will also have the hardware needed if something has been broken. Repair or replace needed parts first before replacing vertical blinds.

  • Measure one of your vertical blind slats before looking for replacement vertical blinds. Measure across the width of the slat and down the length of one of the existing vertical blinds. Write down these numbers.

  • Determine what your blinds slats are made of before finding those missing slats. Vertical blind slats can be made of PVC or vinyl, fabric, metal, wood, cane or bamboo, or canvas.

  • Search online using "replace vertical blinds" for a choice of online stores that sell replacement vertical blinds. Find the vertical blinds tab or enter the size (width and length) and search for the options available.

  • Shop at local stores. Virtually every hardware store, home improvement store or department store will carry several choices of vertical blinds. You can clip off the end of the type you have and carry it in to make sure you are getting an exact duplicate.
