Venetian Conservatory Blinds
Venetian Blinds are available in both aluminium and real wood, offering adaptable light control and shading by simply tilting the slats.
Venetian blinds aren't ideal in a conservatory, but they do offer window shade and privacy.
Available in real wood and aluminium, venetians can be tilted to control glare while still being open, so you can still see out.
You also have the option of traditional freehanging blinds, where they are fitted to the head of the window, or within Perfect Fit frames that are semi-recess fitted to the window itself.
Aluminium venetian blinds retract to much less of a stack than wood blinds, but tend to radiate a great deal of heat and attract dust. They are also quite prone to accumulating dust.
Wood venetians certainly have a much higher quality appearance, but are much heavier and cut out more natural light, which is why we recommend 50mm wide slats (as there are a lot fewer slats). Wood is also a termendous insulator against heat loss and heat gain.
Far from being "conservatory blinds" venetian blinds are truly ideal in the home, particularly in a study, or perhaps in a bedroom where you also have curtains, so the blinds add extra light control.
Despite the fact that nearly all venetian blinds sold nowadays are thin, low quality and cheap - aimed at the DIY market, we remain one of the very few companies that only provide the very highest quality venetian blinds, whether it is wood or aluminium, with coordinating heavy duty headrails and anti-crash locks using brass components.
When it comes to any blinds with looped cords, you need to be aware of the safety concerns where young children and pets are concerned as they can potentially become entangled. Perfect Fit Venetian Blinds can overcome this as there are no hanging looped cords.
