There are many ways in which to cover a window, and Venetian blinds are a popular choice. Venetian blinds are commonly known as horizontal blinds, and consist of horizontal, overlapping slats that are strung one beneath the other. You can change the tilt and angle of the slats using an adjuster, and this brings in more or less light.
Advantages of Venetian Blinds
If you are looking to buy venetian blinds, you might find the following interesting. Listed below are some of the advantages of venetian blinds.
- Privacy. Venetian blinds provide you with a lot of privacy, even if the slats are slightly open. Although someone can see through the blinds if they look through at a certain angle, their view will be very restricted.
- The control of light. With venetian blinds, you can precisely control the amount of sunlight that enters your room.
- Improve the appearance of your room. Venetian blinds are available in a variety of designs and styles, including wooden venetian blinds, aluminium venetian blinds, bamboo venetian blinds, and colours, for example black venetian blinds. The design you choose will depend on the type of look you want to achieve in your room. Aluminum venetian blinds, will, for instance, create a modern look, whereas wood venetian blinds would create more of a natural look.
- Easy maintenance. Venetian blinds are very quick and easy to clean. In general, the best way to clean them is to vacuum them, but consult your manufacturer for specific tips on how to clean yours.
- Easy to install and use. Although venetian blinds are easy to install, it is recommended that you get a specialist to install them so as to protect your guarantee. Once installed, they are simple and quick to use.
- Affordable. Venetian blinds are affordable and not over-priced. All designs and styles are worth the money, although natural wooden venetian blinds are the most expensive, and aluminum venetian blinds are the cheapest. This is purely based on the price of the materials they are made from (wood/timber is more expensive than aluminium).
