What are Venetian Blinds?

07/10/2008

Venetian Blinds are currently one of our most popular types of blind. This is mainly due to their great versatility – both in terms of the vast range of materials, colours and sizes that they are available in and in terms of their shading performance – they are great at controlling and angling sun light as well as simply blocking it out.

Venetian blinds are made up of horizontal slats, which hang from a head rail and are held together by vertical colour coded ladder cords. Venetian Blinds can be operated in two ways. Firstly, the slats can be tilted to control the amount and angle of sunlight that enters your room. Secondly, the slats can be raised so that they stack at the top, and lowered again.

Materials, Colours and Styles:
As I’ve already said, Venetian blinds come in a plethora of colours, materials and styles, ranging from real wood, to PVC, to patterned aluminium.  Whatever your room style is there is a venetian blind to match.

Sizes:
Aluminium Venetian blinds can be manufactured in sizes up to 4000mm x 4000mm – which makes them great for covering large windows.

Light Control and Privacy:
If you are looking for both light control and privacy venetian blinds offer just that. The horizontal slats can be tilted the slats easily, allowing you to control the light without having to fully open or close your blind.

Venetian Blind Cleaning:
Due to the horizontal slats, Venetian blinds can become dusty quite easily, and this can taint the sleek, clean and modern look. Luckily, our venetian blinds can be cleaned easily using an ostrich feather duster.

As previously mentioned, there are many different types of Venetian blinds. Here is a quick description of each.

Aluminium Venetian Blinds

Our range of aluminium venetians represents extremely good value for money. Along side a wide range of gloss and matt colours, we also have some special options such as a metallic, wood effect and patterned ranges.
