Venetian blinds are available in aluminium, wood and also for something a little different in leather or fabric. The choice of material is important – wood for a softer, natural finish, or aluminium for a streamlined and sleek finish, perhaps some use of colour, or leather/fabric for a contemporary more unusual finish.
Venetian blinds in wood are available in three slat widths, 25mm, 35mm, and 50mm. There are many options of material from wood blends to hardwoods with an extensive choice of finish from a white painted finish to very dark walnut or even black. Wooden Venetian blinds are a perfect complement to any room in the home and work well in both a traditional and a contemporary setting.
Aluminium Venetians come in four widths, 15mm (Micro), 25mm, 35mm, and 50mm. The choice of colours and finish is huge, ranging from white to black and all the hues in between with gloss and matt finishes, pearlescent and perforated options available.
Venetian blinds can be fixed at the bottom so they work well fixed to doors where a standard blind might swing around.
They can also be used in sloping windows such as velux type, using tensioning wires so the blind stays flush against the window.
