Why Today's Modern Venetian Blinds May Be The Right Choice For Your Home

Aug 17, 2007
Everyone who has ever had a set of Venetian blinds has experienced just how much of a pain it is to keep them clean. The horizontal slats of wood or plastic seem to be magnets for dust, and provide tons of space of allergens to gather. What's more, their pull-string always gets in a tangle, requiring time and effort to put straight again. But today's Venetian blinds have started to improve as blind makers have adopted to change with new technologies making blinds function better, look prettier, and clean easier.

If you are thinking about installing blinds, you must make sure that you do so correctly. That is, that you hang you blinds correctly. If your blinds are not hung level, then the pull strings will not work right, and then you will get tangles.

You should not use any of the old Venetian blinds unless you are doing so for a specific reason. A throwback style might be one, or the fact that you simply want it that way. If you do go for a retro style, you might want to think about using anodized aluminum or painted silver slatted blinds. These materials seem to gather less dust on them, and will complement your old school styling as well.

Modern Venetian blinds come in a wide selection of colors and textures. Manufacturers are able to offer these choices by varying the finishes applied to the blinds. So, if your decorating calls for a textured, neon purple slatted blind, then you can get it. Or, if you are going to want a bit of bling, you can even get a gold finish Venetian blind.

Office blinds need not be boring any longer. Today's blinds offer a wide selection of office friendly colors, which all are available for your choice. Past office decorators were excessively utilitarian, and chose either bland tan or white to not conflict with office colors, but now office blinds can be had in many different colors, from wine reds to olive. And, if you want something a bit louder, you can even get cherry red. Be different, get expressive blinds.

Blinds are the perfect way to liven up a room, especially if you are on a budget. You can switch out your blinds, which will add a bit of spark. If you are resistant to blinds because you think they are old-fashioned, remember that blinds are easily adaptable and modular. Throw a drape or curtains on top of blinds and you get an entirely new look. Or, choose one of the newly available, brighter colored blinds.

Finally, for the creatively inclined, blinds can be a blank canvas. Paint an image onto your blinds, on the inside for you to appreciate, or on the outside for the entire world to see. Show the world your talent!
