Where Do Venetian Blinds Work Best In Your Home?
Due to the different types and construction materials used to make Venetian blinds, there is a suitable blind design and style for nearly every room of your home.
Bathrooms – privacy is the most important concern when choosing a window covering system for the bathroom. Among other concerns is the moisture clearly present and letting in enough natural light. Venetian blinds, especially aluminium and pvc blinds are ideal for bathrooms because they are damp proof and easy to clean.
Kitchens – Curtains in the kitchen don’t really work because they can get greasy and are not easy to clean. Aluminium blinds are ideal in the kitchen because they can be wiped clean easily.
Conservatories – great for enjoying the sunshine in the winter months, blinds help you control the amount of sunlight coming in through the glass. Small slat width Venetian blinds excel at covering the vast amount of glass in conservatories providing better control. They are also easier to keep clean than other types of blinds
