There are many reasons why we choose to cover our windows, and there are many ways to cover them. Whether it be curtains, blinds, shutters or anything in between, you have a whole host of options to choose from. Venetian blinds are one of the most popular window coverings on the market today because of their versatility, usefulness and sleek appearance. These blinds are easy to use and have the ability to transform any space in your home. Choosing the perfect Venetian blinds for the space you have in mind depends on a number of factors, but some would say that’s the most exciting part of the process!
Venetian blinds are made of a series of horizontal slats that are tied together and hanging from a frame. The slats can be retracted at any time and neatly tucked into the frame if you wish to let more light in. You can also release the slats and adjust their angle to grant you more control over the amount of light that comes into the room. Venetian blinds can be installed on the outside of the wall recess or the inside, so you have a bit of wiggle room when it comes to buying the right size.
Let’s have a look at some of the benefits of buying Venetian blinds:
Lightweight and Durable
Venetian blinds are made to last so they need to be able to withstand a lot of movement. This is why they are commonly made from aluminium or PVC as these are lightweight and durable materials that won’t put too much strain on the system. The lightweight design also makes these blinds exceedingly easy to install as you don’t have to struggle with any bulky rods or tracks.
Waterproof and UV Resistant
Venetian blinds are designed to endure a lot of moisture and a lot of sunlight, making them the perfect option for bathrooms and windows that let in too much sun. High humidity and excessive UV exposure can damage most materials over time, but aluminium and PVC blinds can tolerate both of these exceptionally well. All the parts are made to be rust-resistant to keep the blinds from degrading in high-moisture areas.
Low Maintenance and Easy to Clean
Venetian blinds require very little maintenance as they are highly stain resistant and rarely need to be cleaned. The only thing you need to worry about is dust settling on the slats, which can be easily wiped off using a damp cloth or a specially designed Venetian blind cleaner. There is no need to send anything to the dry cleaners and you’ll never have to be concerned about any unsightly stains.
