The Advantages of Venetian Blinds over Curtains

Aug 20, 2008
There are two benefits to be had from fitting venetian blinds to windows in your home. The first of these being that you can block out light completely from a room. The other is that you have control how much light you actually let into a room, which can either be a little or you pull the blind up completely and then flood the room with light.

Today you have a number of different materials to select from which venetian blinds are now being made from. Below we take a look at just what these are.

Venetian Blinds Made From Wood - These blinds can be made from a number of different types of wood and make a room look elegant. Because of the malleability of the wood these can be made to measure for very difficult window sizes. But of all the varieties of venetian blinds one can purchase these are the most expensive.

Aluminium Venetian Blinds - Many people choose to have these types of blinds in their homes because they had more colors to choose from and also look attractive. Plus they are considerably more durable than wooden ones and don't need so much care and maintenance. In fact it will be several years before these will need to be replaced and because they are so versatile they fit into the decor of any room in your home.

PVC Venetian Blinds - The cost of these types of blinds are relatively inexpensive and just like aluminium ones are very practical along with being durable. They also come in a wide range of colors and can be ideal window coverings for any room in your home, but are especially good for use in say bathrooms and kitchens where moisture occurs.

Mini Venetian Blinds - These ones come with much narrower slats in them and so are able to block out more light from outside your home. This is the kind of blind worth fitting in a bedroom especially those where young children and babies sleep.

Along with you purchasing venetian blinds that are ready made and come in a variety of different sizes, if you want to spend a little more cash it is worth considering getting some made to measure ones instead. This way you can then choose a design, color and material that will match the d?cor of the room in which they are to be fitted perfectly.

The majority of online companies who sell venetian blinds will ship your order to you for free, plus you find that the offer better discounts on their products as well. Plus the biggest benefit of all from buying venetian blinds online is that you have a great choice to choose from and you can spend time comparing the various styles all from the comfort of your own home.
