How can I customise my Venetian blind?
Every Venetian blind from web-blinds is made to fit your window like a glove. But that’s not the only way you can customise your blind. Let us tell you more.
There are a couple of controls on our Venetian blinds - the main one is used to raise the blind so it’s fully open, or lower it until it is fully closed. The other is used to tilt the slats – tilt them open to let any light into your room, or closed to maximise privacy.
You’re given the option of having these controls on either the left or right hand side of the blind, so it’s worth thinking about what you have around your window. For example in the living room you may want to make sure that when somebody opens or closes the blind, they won’t be blocking your view of the TV! Or if you’d like to keep the two controls separate, you can have the main control on one side of the window, and the tilt control on the other.
Depending on which blind you pick, there are up to four different slat widths to choose from - 15mm, 25mm, 35mm or 50mm. If your window faces a busy street or is overlooked by any neighbours, narrower slats help to provide privacy. Larger slats are great for creating a contemporary effect and for letting lots of light into your room.
What other options are there?
If you love the look of Venetian blinds but don’t think our standard style is quite right for your home, there are a couple of other options you could think about.
