Venetian blinds feature horizontal louvres/slats which can be raised, lowered and even tilted, giving you maximum control over how much light you want to let in as well as how much privacy you require.
They can be made from wood, metal or plastic and come in a wide selection of colours and textures in a number of different slat widths including 25mm, 50mm and 63mm. They are also often colour co-ordinated with matching head rails, cords or tapes so you can completely co-ordinate everything with your existing décor. Cord and Wand operation can be right hand control, left hand control or a mixture of both.
Venetian blinds offer a strong, bold look. They are popular in sleek kitchens or bathrooms, where metal or plastic versions are a practical choice as these rooms often have high levels of moisture. Venetian blinds are durable and long lasting. The wood and faux options are also good insulators.
They are also great for a home office as you can filter the light. They are not suitable for inward opening windows unless you fix them outside the recess or you have plenty of housing space above the opening.
