What Are Venetian Blinds? 

Venetian blinds rely on lift cords to open and close the slats. They are distinct from other types of blinds that may use ladder tapes to open and close. The name comes from Venice, Italy, where Venetian blinds became an early alternative to curtains.  

Structurally, Venetian blind slats stack one on top of another. You can pivot the horizontal slats to let in as much or as little light as you desire. You can choose from two types of Venetian blinds: 

  • Micro blinds: The smallest slats measure only a 1/2 inch.
  • Mini blinds: Slats range from just over a 1/2 inch to an inch. 

Types of Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds are one of the most versatile window coverings because they can be made from several materials. The right option for your home or business depends on your style and preferences. Each material has advantages and delivers the outstanding fit and function you desire.

Plus, Venetian blinds look great in any room. They give a space a more sophisticated appearance and improve its practicality. You can control how much light is in the room with a flick of the wrist. Venetian blinds remain in style because of their elegant appearance and outstanding functionality. 

Metal Venetian Blinds

One of the most popular materials for Venetian blinds is metal, with aluminum being the most common. They reflect heat, which is especially useful in the blazing Southern California sun. With their moisture resistance, aluminum and metal blinds are popular choices for bathrooms and kitchens that have high humidity levels. 

Many people like aluminum Venetian blinds because they’re easy to clean and maintain. You can get them wet without causing water damage that warps the slats. While it takes patience to clean each slat, the blinds offer the durability you desire in lasting fixtures that add value to your home or business. 

Light Wood Venetian Blinds

Light wood Venetian blinds provide a sophisticated choice for homeowners and business owners who want more elegance from their blinds. In addition to looking great, wood blinds offer superior protection from UV rays. They also keep energy costs reasonable by maintaining the cool temperatures inside your home when the weather is hot. 

Like aluminum Venetian blinds, light wood options are highly durable. Make a one-time investment and enjoy window blinds for years without frequent replacements. Wood styles work best in rooms with low humidity. Avoid putting them in bathrooms or kitchens, which have the highest moisture levels. 

Colorful Venetian Blinds

You can choose from many colors, including black, beige and white Venetian blinds. We can bring samples to your home or business for you to look at next to your existing decor. Choose a color that matches your room, or select an option that creates contrast and makes your blinds stand out.

Large and Small Venetian Blinds

What size of Venetian blinds do you want? Your choice may vary based on the room, but we have small, large and everything in between. When we stop by with our samples, we can include varying sizes, allowing you to determine what looks best.
