Wood, Aluminium or Faux: What Style of Venetian Should You Choose? March 11, 2020 Venetian blinds are brilliant window solutions that come in a range of material designs. We all love the effortless style and functionality provided by these blinds, but how do you know which type is best suited to your home? Read our guide below to discover the differences between wood, aluminium, and faux style venetian blinds, and what you should consider when making your purchase. Wood Venetian Blinds Material Wood Venetian blinds are made of natural timbers and provide a richness and a touch of warmth to any home design. The beautiful rustic aesthetic of these blinds makes them the perfect option to transform any home into a highly fashionable dwelling. Benefits offered Our venetian blinds are made of only the best quality timbers and are designed with ultimate adjustability to allow for complete visibility when lifted and total privacy when shut. Another perk of venetian blinds is that they can be used to preserve heat in the winter, while in the summer you can use them to let a cool breeze flow through your house. Style and colour These blinds are a classic and timeless curtain, making them the perfect complement to many interior styles. Choose from a range of 6 brilliant colours and customisable features to create the ultimate blind set for your home. Where to use They are the perfect feature for rooms that stay dry and moisture-free, like bedrooms and living room spaces. Because they are made of natural timbers, they should not be used in areas like bathrooms and kitchens because excessive contact with moisture could damage them and lead to warping. Faux Wood Venetian Blinds Material Our faux venetian blinds come in two designs. The standard faux slats used are imported Israeli slats. The other slats we offer are Norman faux slats imported from one of the largest manufacturers worldwide. Faux blinds are made of compressed polystyrene, which means the slats are exceptionally strong, stable and long-lasting. They are also being a great solution for people looking for something a little cheaper than natural timber. Benefits offered Faux venetian blinds perform outstandingly well! In general, faux blinds offer excellent privacy and light control. A key feature that separates them from real wood timber design is that they resist fading, yellowing and warping to a far higher degree, making them great options for any room despite environmental conditions. A key feature of the Norman design is that the slats are free from round holes, allowing for better light control. This feature is excellent because less light leakage means easier sleeping and happier people. It’s a lot easier to feel refreshed in the morning when the light from outside doesn’t interrupt our slumber. You can also sleep in for longer in the mornings if the sun isn’t peeking into your room and waking you up. Style and colour Faux blinds have the classic look of painted wood, but with the benefits of composite plastic. Despite being slightly more plastic in appearance, faux wood beautifully complements any modern or minimalist interior design. Choose from the 4 vibrant colours available for our faux blinds, they will keep your home fresh and stylish for years to come. Where to use Perfect for areas of your home prone to humidity and moisture accumulation. These blinds are highly versatile and can be used anywhere, from the kitchen, and bathroom, to the lounge and bedroom. Aluminium Venetian Blinds Material These finely spaced aluminium slats are exactly what you need to effectively block New Zealand’s harsh UV rays. Benefits offered Aluminium Venetian Blinds are an attractive and cost-effective solution to consider for your home. Easy to install, these slats provide splendid control and adjustability for natural brightness in a room, so you can create the exact lighting ambience you desire.
