Blinds Venetian: as Durable as They Are Beautiful

Venetian blinds are a popular choice as they add sleek sophistication to a space. They offer maximum light control and are available in an array of materials, slat sizes and colours and finishes, from matte to metallic to pearlescent hues. For high-traffic homes and commercial spaces, few window treatments withstand daily wear and tear better than these blinds.

Three different styles

Metal or Aluminum Venetian Blinds

We are seeing a resurgence in popularity of metal venetian blinds. They are affordable and durable, and allow you to control your light and privacy levels. There are a range of operating systems to tilt the slats and lift the blinds from cordless lift systems to motorized lift and tilt options available. We offer aluminum venetian blinds made with an exclusive, spring-tempered alloy that allows the slats to “bounce back” when withstanding rough treatment.

Wood Venetian Blinds

These blinds offer warmth, durability, and versatility, and are a natural choice for almost any decor. But more importantly, wood blinds can provide a perfect complement to real wood furniture and floors like no other blind can. Unlike their aluminum counterparts, wood venetian blinds do not transmit heat, so wood blinds are a natural insulator in both hot and cold windows. And like fine furniture, wood blinds reflect a high level of quality and craftsmanship in a superior window covering. They can also be made with cloth tapes, which provide a colourful plain, textured or patterned cut of cloth that runs vertically and can be customized to match your decor. The thickness of real wood and tight closure of the wood slats offer superior privacy for your home. There are routeless slats available which eliminate the route holes for the cords that helps block even more light from your window and provide maximum privacy. Lighter than faux wood blinds, wood blinds are easy to operate. You can choose to have the blinds motorized for large windows or hard to reach ones.

Alternative or Faux Wood Venetian Blinds

Achieve the appearance of a wood venetian blind with the reassurance that the material will not age over time. Our alternative or faux wood venetian blinds are made with a long-lasting wood alternative, available in both realistic wood-look stain finishes and a large selection of solid colors which mimic a painted wood finish. These venetian blinds allow you to enjoy the rich appearance of hardwood with none of the usual upkeep. Their classic good looks will withstand humid weather and sun exposure. They resist fading, yellowing, warping and bowing—making them a dream option for bathrooms and sunrooms alike.
