Unlike roller blinds, Venetian blinds are made of many aligned slats that tilt to control the level of sunlight that gets into your room. - Venetian blinds vs roller blinds These magnificent blinds have a pleasant look to them that adds a touch of class to any room you put them in.

Venetian blinds are commonly made of wood, synthetic wood or aluminium. Their design makes them relatively easy to clean because all you have to do is wipe down or dust the slats every so often. These blinds will also be very durable and long-lasting when you care for them properly and you buy from a reliable company.

Just like roller blinds, Venetian blinds come in a wide range of colours and materials so you can conveniently get new blinds that look outstanding with the rest of your home's furniture and decor.

Something that venetian blinds offer that roller blinds can't is the option to let light through even when your blinds are down. This is because even if your venetian blinds are fully down, you can still tilt their slats to let in a little bit or a lot of light. Furthermore, this also allows you to have a bit of privacy even if you want some sunlight in.
