Venetian Blinds:

Our range of Venetian blinds are available in timber, PVC and aluminium, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. The rotating blades make them great for controlling the level of privacy, light and heat that you want to allow in, and they are a very attractive alternative to fabric blinds. Visit our Albion Park Rail showroom or browse our online gallery to see some examples of the different options.

Timber Venetian Blinds:

Stained timber Venetian blinds are a beautiful and modern addition to any home. They do require some maintenance in terms of dusting, but it is well worth it for their aesthetic.

PVC Venetian Blinds:

PVC Venetians are ideal for wet areas of the house such as kitchens, bathrooms and laundries as they aren’t prone to warping from moisture like timber does.

Aluminium Venetian Blinds:

The main benefit of aluminium Venetians is their weight; they are extremely light. While timber and PVC Venetians are available up to 2.4m, aluminium can go up to 3.6m – this makes them ideal for larger windows in offices and commercial buildings. Aluminium also has the added benefit of being the cheapest option of the three.

Venetian Blinds FAQs

Venetian blinds are typically made from timber, PVC and aluminium. Timber blinds offer a natural, warm aesthetic and are ideal for living spaces, but they require regular dusting to maintain their appearance. PVC blinds are highly durable and resistant to moisture, making them perfect for bathrooms and kitchens. Aluminium blinds are lightweight and suitable for larger windows.

Venetian blinds enhance energy efficiency by reducing heat gain in summer and retaining warmth in winter, which can lower utility bills. Their versatile design suits various window shapes and sizes. Moreover, these blinds are an excellent choice for improving acoustics, as they can help dampen sound, making them ideal for busy offices or urban homes. Their adjustable slats also enable you to direct light precisely, minimising glare on screens.

Yes, Venetian blinds are relatively easy to clean and maintain. Regular dusting with a microfibre cloth or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment keeps them looking fresh. For more thorough cleaning, slats can be wiped down with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Timber blinds may require additional care to avoid damage from moisture, while PVC and aluminium blinds are more resistant to water and can be cleaned thoroughly without risk of warping or discolouration.

Venetian blinds offer excellent privacy and light control. The adjustable slats can be tilted to various angles, allowing you to control the amount of light entering the room while maintaining privacy. Fully closing the slats provides maximum privacy and light blockage. This flexibility makes Venetian blinds suitable for bedrooms, living rooms and offices where varying degrees of light and privacy are needed throughout the day.

The installation process for Venetian blinds involves several steps to ensure a proper fit and smooth operation. Initially, precise measurements of the window are taken to customise the blinds. After the measurements and specifications are confirmed, the blinds are fabricated. Professional installers then mount the brackets securely and fit the blinds into place, ensuring they operate correctly. The entire process, from measurement to installation, usually takes a few weeks, depending on the availability of materials and the complexity of the setup. For more details, contact us today!

The lifespan of Venetian blinds varies depending on the material and maintenance. Timber Venetian blinds, with proper care, can last many years due to the durability of the wood. PVC blinds are highly resistant to moisture and warping, making them a long-lasting option for humid environments. Aluminium blinds are also durable and can withstand frequent use without significant wear. Generally, well-maintained Venetian blinds can last around 5 to 10 years or more, depending on usage and environmental conditions.
