Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast’s Venetian blind experts
As the name suggests, Venetian blinds originate in early Venice where they were used to control airflow, light and shade before glass became common and affordable, and when nice heavy curtain fabric was a luxury. At that time, they were generally made from whatever local timbers were available, such as oak and pine. In the mid-1700s, British designers invented the tilting mechanism to allow for more precise light control using cords.
Today, Venetian blinds are available in a wide range of timbers, composite materials, and even light aluminium. There are varying slat sizes for different styles of windows, and décor options include stylish cords and pulls.
A wide variety of benefits for your home and décor
With Venetian blinds, there’s no need to decide whether to have them up or down; you can have partial light across the whole window space, unlike rollers and curtains. When they’re fully down, they’re also great for keeping rooms dark and cool (although light may get in along the edge, unlike true blockouts). For air flow and energy efficiency, many homeowners like to have their Venetians on different angles throughout the day, with an open window covered by an insect screen, to allow cool breezes without letting in insects and debris.
