We supply wooden venetian blinds, as well as PVC slatted varieties in a wide selection of colours, sizes, and finishes.
Wooden venetian blinds have proven to be a stylish, yet durable choice of window furnishing for people around the world. They can be used to complement a traditional, minimalistic, or contemporary look, making them look great in most settings.
Our wooden venetians come in 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 63mm slat widths. All blinds come with matching pelmets and can be provided with either tape or braid finishes.
PVC venetians are slightly cheaper and are ideal for damp environments. These blinds are available in 38mm or 50mm slat widths, and can also be finished in either braid or tape. These are usually available with a very fast turnaround, so you won’t have to wait long for your vision to become a reality.
Why Choose Wooden Venetian Blinds?
Wooden venetian blinds are a good choice for any area you want to give a sturdy look. Like many types of blinds, their light control functionalities can help adjust the feel of a room.
Their wooden finish can be great at giving an air of practicality to study areas and offices; creating a natural ambiance within a focussed environment.
Their natural aesthetic also comes with an added benefit of extra heat insulation, due to their material. This can be especially beneficial in the cold winter months where they can help reduce your energy consumption.
When used in bedrooms, these blinds help you enjoy your cosy space without having to close up completely for the night. This contrasts with curtains, which serve a slightly different purpose. In the daytime, you can open the blinds completely to let in more light and enjoy the view of your garden or outside area.
All of our wooden blinds come with optional motorisation, which for a small added fee allows you to control your blinds with a touch of a button.
PVC vs Wooden Blinds
We have many varieties of PVC and wooden venetian blinds to fit your home’s design and create your ideal environment. If you are mindful of your budget, our PVC blinds add a touch of elegance to your space without the slightly higher costs associated with wooden blinds.
Venetian blinds are a popular choice for bathrooms, but while wood always looks great, it is probably not the best choice in humid climates like these, where it could crack and fade.
The same applies to your kitchen, where PVC will be easier to maintain than wood, although it is still not uncommon for wood to be preferred in kitchens. This is just something to consider.
How To Style Your Blinds
Wooden blinds are great because they go with most interior styles and decor… and that’s before we even begin to delve into the large selection of finishes available at The Hessian Company. With our PVC range, there is even more choice, so you won’t have trouble finding the right finish for you.
You can add to the aesthetic by using extra curtains or drapery to achieve a layering effect. These can help make more of a visual impact by complementing your blinds while increasing your interior decor possibilities!
How to Clean Wooden Venetian Blinds
Cleaning wooden blinds is easy. Like many other types of blind, all they usually will need is a little dust-off, and potentially a wipe with a damp cloth if they are marked. Be careful not to get them too wet repeatedly though, else you may have problems with them cracking in the long run.
With PVC venetians you don’t have to worry about getting them wet.
