New life for vertical blinds

Vertical blinds look ste002rile and yet, here in Florida,  they are practical for controlling light...the question is how to make them attractive?

Why not add a sheer fabric wrap to cover the plastic vane?  The sheer is attached to the top of each vane and stabilized at the hem to maintain a sleek and contemporary look as they open and close.

The sheer can be removed for cleaning, giving this treatment a long life.

This is a great way to utalize existing blinds and keep the cost of an updated treatment down for the homeowner.

There are literally thousands of sheer fabrics that can be used to achieve this look.  Many of them are 118" wide which allows the fabric to be railroaded for a seamless application.   Sheers also come in many price ranges, which gives the customer a lot of bang for their buck.

This treatment can be the first building block in a multi layer window treatment.
