Venetian Blinds

Overview

Venetian blinds have been around for a long time but if you still think they are like those powdery pale blue, yellow and cream huge slatted things that used to hang from your grannies windows, you will be amazed at the how they look now.

You now have a choice of 16mm, 25mm, 35mm & 50mm slat sizes, virtually every colour you can imagine, perforated slats which diffuse the light rather than block it out altogether, hammer type finishes, printed slats and all ladder tapes, pull cords, head rail and bottom rail are fully colour co-ordinated to give you a blind which gives excellent light control, is attractive and durable.

All the Venetian blinds we supply are aluminium slats, (except for Woodslat Venetians), aluminium head rail and aluminium bottom bar (except for Woodslat Venetians) to ensure you have a blind which is reliable, durable and gives you the best possible value for money.

As with Roller blinds, the Venetian blinds also have the advantage that when fitted against the window it will still allow you to retain the use of part of the window sill.

Slating

The choice of slats is enormous and the options you have are:

For reasons of cost, colour and choice of finish, we carry ranges from 4 slat manufacturers. Whether you are looking for a Venetian blind that is a certain colour, has a certain type of finish, has perforated slats or at a certain cost, you are sure to find the exact Venetian blind from one of our ranges.

Head Rail & Bottom Rail

The head rail and bottom bar are all aluminium, are fully colour co-ordinated with the colour of the slats and the head rail size is dependent on the size of the slats as follows:

Operation

Operation of Venetian blinds is by means of colour co-ordinated pull cord for the raise and lower of the blinds with any slat size and by means of a clear plastic wand to tilt the slats on 16mm and 25mm and colour co-ordinated cord on 35mm and 50mm blinds to tilt the slats.

Controls

Standard controls are the raise/lower cord on the right side of the blind and the tilt wand/cord on the left side of the blind but these can be reversed or you can have both controls on either the left or right side of the blind.
