When it comes to choosing blinds for your home, there are a lot of different options available, many of which we’ve explored in previous posts. One popular window treatment comes in the form of venetian blinds – here are seven reasons why they’re worth considering.
They provide an adjustable form of privacy
One of the key benefits of venetian blinds is their ability to provide you with privacy. If your windows are overlooked by roads, businesses or other houses, they’ll help provide a practical and functional way of ensuring you can maintain the privacy you want at all times. As they’re fully adjustable, you can angle in the slats to the position you want and have the blinds fully down over the entire window or only covering the part of the window.
They allow you to control light
Along with the benefits of privacy comes the ability to allow you to control how much light you do and don’t want in a room. If the sun is glaring in, you can keep the blinds closed or partially closed, and when the weather is dull and grey and you’re craving as much as light as possible, you can fully open them up t let the light flood in.
They’re easy to clean
If you’ve been put off the idea of venetian blinds by worries about their upkeep and cleaning, don’t panic! Yes, dust will gather on the slats, but they can easily be wiped clean and a long-handled duster will help you reach the higher slats with ease.
They’re modern and stylish
If you opt for well designed and good quality venetian blinds, they’re perfect for a modern and stylish home. If you want the blinds to blend in and not stand out, they’ll do so without compromising on the rest of your interior design scheme. But if you want your windows to be a feature, you could have colourful or patterned blinds, such as one of the options available from Direct Blinds.
They can add texture and warmth
Depending on the type of finish you choose, venetian blinds can add texture and warmth into a room. Wooden blinds in particular are excellent for this.
They’re strong and durable
Although they might seem quite light when you hang them, venetian blinds made from aluminium are in fact very strong and durable. They’re well made and designed to last.
They’re great for awkward windows
Finally, if you’re got awkward shaped windows, or bay windows, and have found it hard to find something suitable for them, venetian blinds could be the answer. They can be made to measure and offer a solution to your window treatment dilemmas. In fact, venetian blinds work for windows in any room of your home, from the kitchen and bathroom, to living rooms, bedrooms and studies.
