Venetian – the classic blind and a firm favourite for many homes and offices. Venetian blinds are created from horizontal strips (or slats) which come in different widths. Venetian blinds come in different materials, including plastics, metals and wood or wood effect. Venetian blinds are extremely flexible in the way they allow you to control light and privacy for your room. Pull up to let the sun shine in; lower and open the slats to let in some daylight or fully close to give you total privacy.
