Venetian blinds are made up from slats which can come in different types of material like plastic, wood and metal.
Venetian Blinds are a tried and tested window covering option that has been around for centuries making it one of, if not the most popular choice of blind in the world. Even though a lot of new varieties of modern blinds have made their way into the market, the Venetian still remains a classic design choice for your home.
These blinds are made from 2’ horizontal slats that can be made from three main materials, aluminium, wood or plastic and are stacked one on top of the other. Interestingly, in the United States, blinds with wooden slats are often listed individually as wood blinds, not Venetian. The 2” horizontal slats are suspended by either wide cloth tapes or rope cords, this allows the slats to rotate in unison, nearly 180 degrees. This rotating concept allows light to enter diagonally either through the top or bottom of the slat creating that dark and light pattern that is instantly recognisable from a Venetian.
These window coverings are typically controlled with a lift cord to give the process a much more balanced and graceful look as the entire piece moves together. The lift cord is threaded through small slots in each slat and when pulled, the lift cord moves the bottom of the blind up, making the slats sink into one another as the blind is raised.
Venetian Blinds have become a classic window treatment options because of their huge interested from the 1930’s to the 1950’s. At the peak of their popularity they were produced with wide cloth tapes. This option can give your room a real nostalgic feel and just as importantly prevents unwanted light from entering your room through the holes in the blinds slats. The only negative with a wider cloth tape is that they are generally harder to clean than cords, and in some cases can obstruct more of the view through the slats when the blind is titled open.
Venetian blinds are a great option for your home if you want a timeless and durable classic window covering. They are a great style choice as they offer a lot of choice when it comes to their material and colour, as well as giving you great control over the lighting levels in your home.
