Venetian Blinds Info
Venetian Blinds have stood the test of time because they do their job so well – offering great control over your privacy and light but also giving a stylish and totally contemporary look. For downstairs rooms especially – living and dining rooms – they are the obvious solution,giving you all the privacy you need while still letting you keep your rooms light and welcoming. If you haven’t shopped for ventian blinds in a while you’ll be impressed with the range of options.
Venetians are now available in a fantastic range of materials , finishes and colours . Traditional aluminium blinds remain as popular as ever and while most customers still opt for the basic white versions they are available in over 150 colours as well as more specialised finished like perforated aluminium – all with matching top bars and facias.
Wooden venetian blinds are now increasingly popular and can provide a stunning contemporary finish to any room. They are available in a fabulous range of tones and shades – pine, beech, maple oak , chestnut, hazel, walnut and alder being some of the more popular of the ‘traditional’ wood finishes. The area where we’re seeing a real surge of interest though is in wooden blinds in white and cream shades – and to be honest you only need to see a couple of examples of them to see why (check out our blog or Facebook page to get an idea) There are around a dozen white/cream options available – in both matt and gloss options – and they look sensational. An additional option with the wooden blind range is the addition of fabric tapes which run vertically over the cords finishing the blind off beautifully – again these are available in a number of complementary and contrasting colours.
In order to suit all window sizes the Venetian blind range comes in four different slat sizes 16mm/25mm/35mm and 50mm. The size which you decide on will usually depend on both the style of blind you opt for and the size of window space you’re looking to fill. But don’t worry we’ll be happy to give you all the advice you need to get the best looking blind possible.
