ABOUT VENETIAN BLINDS
Venetian blinds are made up of horizontal slats, which may be made of wood or aluminium. Slat widths vary from 1 inch to 3 inches. The slats are suspended on cords or tapes, and their angle may be adjusted with a string pull. This provides a wide range of privacy settings and degrees of shade.
Wood venetian blinds are available in a wide range of finishes and colors. Finishes include plain, sandblasted, and rustic. Colours may be either painted or stained to match a wide variety of woods. Custom paint colors are available; one supplier offers ten shades of white, with a swatch pack.
