Venetian blinds generally come in two main types – wooden ones and aluminium ones. Lots of people opt for the wooden variety, but before you make this all important choice you may want to think about the benefits of opting for aluminium Venetian blinds instead.
Firstly they are available in an incredibly array of colours. From pale blue to misty green, you can be sure of finding just the right pale colour to suit your home. Blinds 2 Go is a great example of a company with dozens of colours to choose from. On the other hand you could opt for one of the much brighter colours, such as leaf green or African violet – there are plenty to choose from.
But it isn’t just colour that comes to mind when you’re considering the reasons to go for aluminium Venetian blinds. Another good reason is the effect they give when they have been installed. The shiny nature of the aluminium means you get a nice reflection as they interact with the light. And since they are hanging at the windows you will get to see this nice effect on a daily basis.
Another huge benefit is their ability to work well in areas that tend to invite a lot of moisture. The two main areas in most homes are the bathroom and the kitchen. Wooden blinds don’t generally work well in these areas because they can get very steamy and cause the wood to warp. However if you do want the look of wood you can get wood effect aluminium Venetian blinds to do the trick instead. They won’t warp but unless you get up close you won’t even know they’re not real wood.
Many more people love the fact they can enjoy easy cleaning too with their aluminium blinds. Even if you splash something on them all you have to do is wipe it off and no permanent damage will be done. They’re superbly easy to dust as well, and since most of us would rather enjoy our blinds rather than spending every spare minute cleaning them, this has to be a good thing.
So you see, if you were thinking of getting wooden blinds you may want to reconsider and opt for aluminium Venetian ones instead. It could just be the perfect solution for every window in your home, regardless of the colour schemes you have in place.
