Rigid-framed blinds can be tricky to install, and repairing or replacing them is a bit of a pain. One way to avoid these issues is with cord-supported Venetian style blinds. Master Blinds & Shades is your go-to custom window treatment manufacturer for affordable, made-to-measure Venetian blinds for windows and doors in the local area. We work with faux wood, metal, vinyl, and a variety of other quality materials to create custom blinds suitable for all sorts of residential and commercial properties.
What Are Venetian Blinds?
The definition has changed over the last couple of centuries, but nowadays the term “Venetian” blinds refers to free-hanging panel blinds without rigid frames. Instead, the panels are affixed to a set of strings or cords, letting them hang down in the window frame while holding them parallel. One set of strings is used to raise and lower the Venetian blinds, compressing them into a stack on top of the windowpane when open. The other strings are used to rotate the panels in their places, letting in more or less sunlight in between them. Thanks to their thin panels and flexible shapes, Venetian blinds are subtle, inexpensive, and very easy to use.
Wood, Metal, Or Plastic Venetian Blinds
This style of blinds started out as wooden constructs. In fact, during the nineteenth-century “wood” and “Venetian” were all but synonyms in the world of window treatments. San Francisco home and business owners have a lot more choices in modern times, though. Metal paneled blinds are a great look for offices, with aluminum also being a waterproof asset for kitchens and bathrooms. If you want some brightly colored, black, or white Venetian blinds, try our colored vinyl or composite material panels. Or, to get classic looks at modern durability and prices, you can look through our faux-wooden Venetian blinds options. Our team will walk you through the pros and cons of each before you decide!
Fitting The Window And Room
The simple, horizontal panel array isn’t the only style of Venetian blinds. Long, wall-length office windows, observation lounges, and sliding doors don’t do well with horizontal panels, for instance. Try some of our hanging vertical Venetian blinds that stack up along the sides when opened. Besides fitting long panes better, this lets you choose which side of the room to shade if you only want part of it lit. For bedrooms and other sensitive environments, blackout Venetian blinds with wide, opaque panels that fully interlock are the ticket. You also have more advanced options, like adding a sheet fabric shade layer over the panels, or embellishing them with decorative features.
Classic Or Motorized Venetian Blinds?
Hand-drawn Venetian blinds are as functional today as they always were. However, if you want to have a more convenient daily routine, or are worried about the drawstrings because of young children in the house, there’s another option. You can raise and lower our motorized Venetian blinds with the press of a button, with no dangling strings or tight cords. Order your set with some sensors, and they’ll react to San Francisco weather on their own. No need to control them yourself at all! Few things make life easier than motorized Venetian blinds with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth remote controls.
