These are typically made from fabric and can fold or roll up and down in horizontal panels – perfect for providing a softening light to a room and to also create a softer look for a window.

The soft fabric is very easy to match with other patterns and designs. They are also great for modern finishes.

Ranging in a couple of fabrics to choose from, you will be able to have full customisation and control over the design, style and flow of the living area where the blinds will be used
Making quite a recent resurgence in the modern home, the clean and humble horizontal blade of the venetian blind provides a sleek look and classy profile which can easily work in whatever room it is placed in. These blinds are constructed from a variety of materials that can all cater to different areas of a house – for example, materials such as PVC and aluminium are used for wet areas such as bathrooms instead of wood. Venetian blinds are easy to install and while not fully able to black out a window, these are able to help soften the light and feel of a room.

While these are not available in a wide variety of colours, they provide an easy and practical way to provide shade and privacy to your home.
