Style & Use
Venetian blinds are one of the most versatile blinds available. Providing a sleek modern feel, and contemporary window dressing, which can be used alone or as a backdrop for with other curtains or drapes.
Venetian blinds can be tilted, raised or lowered using horizontal slats. This design allows control of light to let in as much or as little light as you require, as well as privacy. These features give these blinds the most user control out of all blinds.
They can keep the room well ventilated as they are easily adjusted letting a breeze in from an open window, while keeping the light and privacy controlled.
Venetian blinds are suited to all rooms of the house, from the living room to the bathroom.
Design & Function
Venetian binds are available in either wood slats (see wooden blinds) for a traditional feel or aluminium slats for a more contemporary look.
The blinds function with a plastic rod, used use to tilt the slats of the blinds up or down, which opens or closes the blinds, and a cord used to raise and lower the blinds, thereby controlling the amount of light coming in the window. Pulling down Venetian blinds, it is a simple process which takes seconds to do.
Slats are available in sizes 50mm (2.1″), 35mm (1.5″), and 25mm (1″) and are connected using cords.
Venetian blinds come in a selection of colours and finishes.
Blinds can be made with or without tapes, tapes come in a selection of colours.
Valance options include metallic, chrome, black, white, faux leather.
For a plantation shutter effect blind, where the cords is hidden, choose the Contour collection blind. This blind has a 65mm slat and gives extra privacy, using tape to hide cords and the holes which the string is fed through.
For ultimate style choose Perfect Fit, a unique fitting system developed by Louvolite that requires no drilling or screwing during installation and fits snugly around your window.

Unfortunately Venetian blinds are good at collecting dust. To keep them dust free Venetian blinds can be dusted with feather duster or with vacuumed with an upholstery brush attachment, as with your curtains and upholstery, at regular intervals.
For a more thorough cleaning, wipe with a soft damp cloth and lukewarm water. Turn the slats toward you and wipe down going easy so you don’t bend the slats. Reverse the slats, and repeat.
