Venetian Blinds

A stylish window blind consisting of horizontal slats or blades that can be pivoted to control the amount of light passing through the window opening, venetians are slatted blinds usually made from polyresin, timber or aluminium. Designed to be raised, lowered or tilted, giving variable control over the level of privacy and the amount of light coming into an interior, venetian blinds are easily operated using pull cords, or tilted using a wand. They’re available in a wide range of sizes, colours and slat widths.

In terms of choosing your style of venetian, slat size is one factor to consider. In general, the larger the window, the wider the slats, as a lot of narrow slats look busy and out of balance on a huge window; and conversely wide slats look out of place on a small window. Additionally, narrow slats work well in a contemporary interior while wider slats offer a more classic look. It’s also worth bearing in mind that the maximum width of a venetian blind does have a limit. If it’s too wide, the weight of the blind will be too heavy to fully open or close the blind and some bowing of the slats may also occur. For wide expanses of window, installing a number of venetian blinds is an effective solution.  Read more

Perfect for kitchens or bathrooms, polyresin or aluminium venetian blinds are also a practical choice for functional applications such as home offices. In terms of colour, lighter hues are trending at the moment; white or cream are not only fashionable hues, their reflective quality also brings more light into the room. For a natural, authentic aesthetic, timber blinds bring warmth and texture to both traditional and contemporary styles of decor and come in a host of colours and finishes. Timber is a warm material, both in terms of its aesthetic appeal and insulation and energy efficiency, assisting in the prevention of heat loss from your home. If you’re really looking for insulation as a priority however, venetians’ slatted structure will only offer minimal benefit compared to other window coverings specifically designed for insulation. 

Generally venetian blinds should be considered as a stylish but low-tech window covering; they’re also cost effective, and many homeowners opt for venetians as a price accessible alternative to plantation shutters. They’re also a fairly durable option, and should last a long time before they need replacing. With regular cleaning in the form of dusting with a soft brush or gently sponging, Verosol venetian blinds will retain their elegant sheen. One thing is certain; this classic will undoubtedly also retain its style indefinitely.

Operating Venetian Blinds

Verosol Venetian Blinds are a popular style, being both contemporary in appearance and functional in nature. Whether you have the Mode or Ambience system remember the following: 

  • Always raise the blinds if windows and/or doors are open, as a strong breeze could catch and damage the blind;

  • Avoid exposure to wind or rain, as rain blown onto the blind might stain the fabrics and these spots could be difficult to remove;

  • To raise the blinds, stand directly in front of the chain, making sure the chain does not rub against the chain wheel mechanism, you will be able to hear and feel the difference;

  • If you notice your fabric is tracking or telescoping, please contact your Verosol Retailer as soon as possible. 

Cleaning Venetian Blinds

Choosing the best method of cleaning will depend on the fabric of your blinds.

  • Dust with a soft brush or gently sponge clean with warm soapy water, leaving the blinds down to dry;

  • Fabrics such as Ultra, Mirage and Satin may be spot cleaned. But be careful not to crease the fabric;

  • Spot clean any marks with a soft damp cloth, make sure the cloth damp not wet to guard against leaving water marks;

  • You will also find an art gum eraser will also remove a wide range of service marks. 

Verosol Metallised fabrics are anti-static, meaning the product resists air-born dust. 

  • If dusting is required, use a soft brush or dusting cloth;

  • Dirt marks or spills on metallised fabric must be cleaned ultrasonically. Think of this process the same as taking your silks to the dry cleaners;

  •  If the fabric in your blinds have a metallised backing;

  • DO NOT spray window cleaner on or near the fabric.
