Types of Venetian blinds
The different types of Venetian blinds include:
- Timber Venetians
- Aluminium Venetians
- PVC Venetians
- Shangri la Venetians
Timber Venetian blinds are a favourite amongst homeowners, as the beautiful timber instantly adds dimension and warmth to a room. Available in numerous types of wood, timber Venetian blinds can be created using cool hues for a more coastal feel, or rich, vibrant reds for something a little more rustic. Their timeless beauty and universal appeal make them an easy choice when it comes to transforming a space and can even help make a home more marketable when it comes selling. Timber Venetians work best in areas where they can be appreciated by guests, such as living rooms and dining areas, but also work well in bedrooms too.
Aluminium Venetian blinds are the perfect choice for homeowners looking for a sturdy, long-lasting blind. As the name suggests, aluminium blind slats are made from a strong metal, which means they’re far less vulnerable to twisting, fading, bending or snapping than their timber counterparts. Reinforced with an anti-corrosive coating, aluminium blinds bought from reputable sellers can withstand sea air, as well as harsh weather conditions such as thunderstorms, hail, or bright sunny days. Additionally, these types of Venetian blinds come in many different colours, which means you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that doesn’t suit your home. Aluminium Venetians can be used anywhere in the home but work especially well in high moisture environments such as the kitchen and bathroom.
For the timber look without the drawbacks, PVC Venetians offer durability and style all rolled into one. Though timber Venetians can be susceptible to warping and fading over time, PVC can mimic the look and are often more affordable than both timber and aluminium. PVC Venetians bought from reputable sellers are safe and won’t have oxidative reactions when faced with harsh sunlight. PVC Venetians work especially well in environments with high moisture content, as the material can easily stand fluctuating temperatures and droplets of oil and water.
Shangri la Venetians
The word ‘Shangri la’ is a fictional place described as a mystical valley of earthly paradise – a description that makes perfect sense for these types of Venetian blinds. Shangri la Venetians allow soft light to trickle through, which makes them one of the most versatile Venetian blind options. The translucent panels soften the view outside, allowing you to bask in a soft glow instead of blocking out light completely. This makes Shangri la Venetian blinds ideal for living rooms and dining areas, where the feeling of nature nearby creates a tranquil atmosphere.
