Venetian blinds are a practical and durable window covering. They are great for light and privacy control and look really stylish! Whether you are redecorating or just want to find more information about this popular window dressing you should find it in this blog post. In previous articles, we wrote about Faux Wood Venetian Blinds. Today, we will concentrate on another popular choice- Aluminum Venetian Blinds.
What is a Venetian Blind?
Venetian blinds are a window covering made of horizontal slats interconnected by a cord. This blind type gives you excellent control over light and privacy. The blind can be lowered and raised using a cord and tilted with a wand to control the amount of light in the room. Venetian blinds can be made of wood, faux wood or metal. Aluminium slats are very lightweight, whereas wood and faux wood are a bit heavier. This blind type requires slightly more frequent cleaning, but the process of it is fast and easy. Depending on the material, Venetian blinds might require different cleaning methods. We have a whole separate blog post about cleaning Venetian blinds that you can read in here.
Aluminium Venetian blinds are an affordable yet durable window covering solution. The blind is made of durable material and comes in a variety of colours and styles that will suit different rooms in the house.
Are Aluminium Venetian Blinds Blackout?
Aluminium blinds are a great solution for window covering for any room in the house and will successfully darken your space. The light won’t go through aluminium slats; however, it can still leak out through the cord holes and in areas where the horizontal slats join. Therefore, we would not consider them as full blackout blinds. We would still recommend using our Metal Venetian blinds in the bedrooms, as they look great and give you flexible light control. However, if you are sensitive to light in the mornings, then Blackout Roller or Blackout Roman Blind may be a better choice.
Where can I place an Aluminium Venetian Blind?
Venetian blinds are a versatile window covering solution and can be placed in almost any room of the house. Aluminium blinds are an affordable alternative to wood or faux wood and will look amazing in any modern interiors.
This blind type is moisture resistant so it’s a practical choice for bathrooms. Aluminium slats won’t warp when wet so they are the perfect solution for windows placed near showers or bathtubs. For example, our Morning Glory Venetian blind will add a touch of blue colour to your space and look amazing in plain interiors. Please be aware that if constantly exposed to water or heavy moisture, over time it will degrade.
Metal Venetian blinds are also a popular choice for kitchen areas. The aluminium slats are easy to clean with wipes or light detergents so they are perfect for windows near the sink, where there might be any spillage or grease. Metal Venetian blinds are an affordable alternative to wooden blinds. Some of the colours available on our website are in a similar shade as wood so you can enjoy a classic design along with the durability of window covering.
