What are venetian blinds?
Are you on the hunt for a stylish alternative to curtains? Perhaps you want something a little more warming than roller of vertical blinds? Whether your home is a cool modern space or a charming traditional place, wooden venetian blinds are the perfect choice.
Venetian blinds boast a sleek and streamlined design. They are made up of a series of wooden or faux wood slats which are connected via a pulley cord system. When fully raised, the slats stack neatly on top of each other at the top of the frame. When lowered, the slats can be rotated up to 180 degrees, providing either full coverage or a gentle filter of light.
Named after the city where they were first discovered, venetian blinds are a classic choice for the home. They also offer exceptional value for money, boosting the look and functionality of your space for the long term.
