Practical Venetian Window Blinds
If you are looking for new window coverings that are stylish, practical and that will last the test of time; you’d be hard pressed to find anything better than Venetian window blinds. Venetian window blinds are a type of window covering, nearly always found on the inside of the window. They serve the purpose of blocking out external light, as well as hiding the inside of the structure from exterior viewing. These window blinds are slatted, consisting of a number of long horizontal strips attached in rows. In the modern world, Venetian blinds are nearly always made of metal or vinyl, wooden varieties exist, but these are now referred to as wooden blinds. The slats are usually connected with string such that they may be turned to either allow light to pass through them by becoming parallel with the window-sill, or else turned flat to block light from the outside. Usually the turning of the slats is accomplished by rotating a metal or plastic piece found at the upper-corner of the blinds. A string or pull allows the blinds to be raised, as well, removing them entirely from obscuring the window.
One of huge benefit of venetian window blinds is how low maintenance they are. They do not need to be washed or anything like that to keep them looking their best. In fact, all you have to do is to wipe them over with a cloth occasionally (either dry or damp works) or use a duster on them briefly while you are doing your dusting. There’s nothing else that you have to worry about!
