Venetian Blinds: Wooden Blinds or Faux Wood Blinds
There can be a lot of the decisions to make when it comes to updating your window coverings and choosing between Wooden Blinds or Faux Wood Blinds but it doesn’t have to be tricky. Below are the different types of Venetian Blinds available and the best Venetian Blind type for the different rooms in your home.
Wooden Blinds or commonly known as Timber Venetian Blinds, are a classic and timeless window covering. Offering a natural look and adding character and texture to a space, with each blind showing slight variations in the wood. Wooden Blinds are an investment for the home and offer excellent control over light, privacy, view and ventilation. The Wooden Blind is a popular choice for Australian homes as timber is a natural insulator and will help to regulate temperatures in the home and the perfected kiln drying process offers a more durable blind that can withstand the harsh Australian climate.
With a finishing option to suit any interior décor style, Wooden Blinds come with either a stain or paint finish, with the option of ladder tape for an extra designer touch. Wooden Blinds are a suitable solution for almost any room in the home, with their patented ‘Smart Privacy’ slats offering less light leakage and securing privacy with no slot on the slats. The Wooden Blinds are simple to operate and the timber offers a lightweight design that makes tilting the slats and manoeuvring the blind to your desired position a breeze.
Faux Wood Blinds
Faux Wood Blinds, also referred to as Timber Look Venetian Blinds or PVC Venetian Blinds, are a popular choice for those wanting to update their window coverings. Offering a highly durable Venetian Blind solution, the Faux Wood Blind is a great alternative to the Wooden Blind. The Faux Wood Blind has water resistant slats and the durable vinyl coating resists fading warping, twisting, cracking and scratches. The Faux Wood Blind is also an excellent choice to withstand the Australian climate with a High Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) of 60 degrees. One of the main reasons the Faux Wood Blind is a popular choice, is not only due to their durability but also their versatility. The Faux Wood Blind can be installed throughout any room of the home, helping to keep all window coverings unified and creating a consistent look and feel.
The Faux Wood Blind comes in both wood grain, as well as, painted slats. This helps to give the look of Wooden Blinds in the highly durable PVC solution. Faux Wood Blinds are also a budget friendly window covering and offer excellent flexibility over light control, privacy and airflow. The ‘Smart Privacy’ Slats offer a snug closure, no slots and by simply tilting the slats or completely raising and lowering the blind, you can conveniently determine your level of privacy and lighting, all throughout the day.
Aluminium Venetian Blinds
Aluminium Venetian Blinds are another Venetian Blind type commonly found in Australian homes. The Aluminium Blind is highly versatile with applications ranging from bathrooms to laundry’s and commonly installed in caravans. Due to their slimline design, they are also a great solution for those with narrow window reveals. Aluminium Venetian Blinds are another highly durable Venetian Blind solution as they are water resistant and won’t scratch, scuff, peel, fade or corrode. One of the biggest benefits of the Aluminium Venetian Blind is its budget friendly price. They are a great solution for those who are wanting to update their window coverings whilst on a budget and still want to give their home a modern and contemporary look.
Venetian Blinds By Room
When it comes to choosing the right Venetian Blind type for your home, it’s a good idea to consider the room the blind will be installed in and how you and your family use this room every day. Take a look at the below common rooms in a home and which type of Venetian Blind is best.
Kitchen Blinds: Depending on the location of your window in the kitchen, you could choose any of the three Venetian Blind types. For those windows located above a sink or close to water, opt for the water resistant and highly durable Faux Wood Blind. This will ensure the longevity of the blind in a location that is used regularly and contains water, as well as, food and cooking smells.
Bathroom Blinds: For bathrooms, always choose the Faux Wood Venetian Blind, no matter where the window is located. The bathroom is a room in the home that not only has water present but also hot temperatures and humidity. The Faux Wood Venetian will withstand these conditions.
Bedroom Blinds: The bedroom is a location where you could install any of the three Venetian Blind types; Wooden Blind, Faux Wood Blind or an Aluminium Blind. Venetian Blinds allow you to control lighting, privacy and airflow by simply tilting the slats, which is what makes them a suitable bedroom solution. In this location, consider how each of the different blind types would suit your bedroom style.
Living Room Blinds: Similar to the bedroom, the living room is a location where you could also install any of the Venetian Blind types. Again, consider the style of your living room to help with your decision. If you have an open plan living, kitchen, dining area, consider unity. If you are installing Faux Wood Blinds in the kitchen, consider running those throughout that open plan space to keep the look consistent. This highly durable blind is an excellent choice for any room in the home.
