What are venetian blinds?

Venetian blinds have been favoured window coverings since they originated in Venice, Italy in the late 1700’s. Still popular today, venetian blinds are a practical and visibly appealing option for windows and patio doors, and a great way to protect your living room furniture from sun damage.

Venetian blinds are designed using horizontal slats made from a variety of materials. Contemporary styles of venetian blinds include:

  • Timber venetian blinds - for a luxurious natural look
  • Aluminium venetian blinds - with sleek slimline modern appeal
  • Faux wood venetian blinds - beautiful and affordable ‘almost’ timber blinds

It’s easy to see why modern venetian blinds are such a popular choice today and have been for centuries.

  1. Their versatility allows for fully adjustable light filtering which you can’t get with curtains or roller blinds.
  2. When mounted close to the glass within the window cavity, venetian blinds provide good insulation against heat transfer through the glass.
  3. When fully closed venetian blinds deliver complete privacy and a high level of light exclusion.
  4. Venetian blinds are easy to open and close and can also be raised to provide full window exposure.
  5. Aluminium venetian blinds provide a sleek ultra-modern look Natural timber has luxurious durability and faux timber blinds have fresh, unfussy appeal.
  6. Venetian blinds can be mounted inside the window cavity or on the surrounding wall with a neat pelmet finish.

Venetian blinds vs other window coverings

Compared to full blackout curtains, venetian blinds don’t provide total blockout darkness. To achieve total blackout you’ll find blockout curtains or roller blinds are your best option.

Venetian blinds can be mounted inside the window cavity so they provide an unobtrusive option in small rooms.

Venetian blinds are easier to clean and retain less dust than curtains, but curtains provide the greatest level of insulation.

How do you install venetian blinds?

Installing venetian blinds is relatively simple but it varies depending on where you intend to fix the blinds. Ready made venetian blinds can be fixed in two places:

  1. Inside window cavities using brackets that are screwed into place either on timber window framing or into the masonry.
  2. Onto the wall just above the window. This option usually includes a pelmet covering the top of the blind.

How do you clean venetian blinds?
