Modern homes and offices require modern solutions, and there are very few window dressings that offer the advantages that you get from aluminium Venetian blinds. These highly versatile window covers are sleek and practical, easy to operate, and can be bought in just about any colour to match your décor.
Since they first hit the market, aluminium Venetian blinds have been exceptionally popular… and since then they’ve only improved in quality and durability. It’s no wonder that they are still one of the bestsellers on the market.
Here are some of the top reasons why people love aluminium Venetian blinds:
1. They’re Great for Privacy
With their design comprising adjustable vertical slats made of solid aluminium, these Venetian blinds are perfect for managing your privacy. A single twist of a rotator handle or pull of a string, you can adjust the angle of the slats and enjoy 100% privacy from prying eyes.
2. They Offer Effective Light Control
The same mechanic as described in point 1 also allows you to effectively control the light in a room. Open the slats to let the light stream in and enjoy a well-lit room, or close them for a peaceful, darkened room in an instant.
3. They Require Very Little Maintenance
A large drawcard of aluminium Venetian blinds is how easy they are to maintain. Nobody has time for the hassles of taking down heavy curtains and putting them through the wash. Blinds, on the other hand, only need a quick dust with a dry cloth or a wipe with a damp cloth for more stubborn dirt.
4. They Are Made to Last
Made from the naturally occurring metal aluminium, these Venetian blinds are lightweight and flexible, as well as being resistant to corrosion. On top of that, they are also UV resistant and the perfect choice for windows suffering the brunt of the harsh South African sun.
5. They Are Exceptionally Easy to Install
Unlike curtains, which can take forever to hang, aluminium Venetian blinds are very quick and easy to install. Your entire home or office can be fitted with these sleek window dressings in next to no time.
6. They Can Be Customised to Suit A Large Array of Window Sizes
There is no standard size for windows. Some are high, others are wide… There are as many variations as you can possibly imagine. That said, any supplier worth their salt will offer custom-made aluminium Venetian blinds to suit a wide variety of window sizes. In fact, they can even be made to fit corner windows, bay windows or dome windows.
7. They Add to the Appearance of a Room
Aside from the range of colours available and the sleek lines that add a modern feel, aluminium Venetian blinds also fold out of the way and do not extend past the borders of a window, which means they are less intrusive and make any room seem more spacious.
