What are Venetian Blinds?

If you’ve never owned or used Venetian blinds before, you might be wondering what exactly they are. Sure, you probably know what they look like, but what makes them different from other blinds? Is there a difference between wooden and metal Venetian blinds?

Here at Solaire Blinds we love Venetian blinds because of their unique look. Venetian blinds are made of horizontal slats placed on top of one another. Vertical ladder tape or cord keeps the slats together and allows for rotation. The cord keeps the slats spaced at regular intervals while they hang so that there’s no tangling.

Venetian window blinds can be easily raised and lowered. Most importantly, they are easily opened and closed, the slats tilting at variable angles so that you can control the level of light coming into the room. This is often operated using a tilt cord or wand that you twist, controlling the privacy of your room.

The slats can be made of wood, aluminium or faux wood, allowing you options to find the right style for your room and home. Venetian blinds are easy to operate, versatile and attractive both from the outside and in, making them a great addition to the windows of your home.


Solaire Blinds came recommended to us, we found them very efficient they came to quote and measure at a time to suit us. David helped advise us on colours and texture to suit awkward sized windows, from placing an order to installation was a stress and hassle free service. Their prices are very competitive and we will definitely use them again in the future and recommend them to our clients.

Had my full house fitted with blinds today. Excellent service from start to finish. I found Solaire Blinds to be very honest with their quote and the price was excellent. Thank you to David and his partner who did a great job fitting them for me.

What Are The Benefits Of Venetian Blinds?

Venetian window blinds are a very flexible window solution with a lot of versatility. Some of the benefits of installing Venetian blinds include:

  • Easy operation.
  • Can be closed for complete privacy.
  • Great light filtering
  • Available in various sizes.
  • Easy to clean and maintain.
  • Moisture-resistant and hard-wearing, making it a good choice for kitchens and bathrooms.
  • A great selection of colours, finishes and designs to suit any room or style.

Venetian blinds offer some great style and colour options. If you want to get creative with adding some style to your window, they’re a great choice. And you can make this style statement while adding great practicality to your home!

Venetian blinds offer complete control over the privacy of your room, as well as the lighting levels in your home. If it’s too bright outside, you can simply tilt the blinds backwards and deflect the light coming in. If the clouds are grey and overcast and you want as much light as possible without people being able to see inside, you can tilt the blinds forwards instead.

Furthermore, Venetian blinds are actually known for helping to save on your fuel economy. This is because they help with insulation and reducing drafts from old windows in winter, while providing protection against the sun in summer.
