Venetian or Roller Blinds – What’s the Best?

Trying to decide between Venetian Blinds and Roller Blinds? They both offer style, versatility, and affordability, making them great choices for any room in your home.

Many Aussie homeowners ponder this question when hunting for the perfect blinds. Here’s our take on it.

Venetian Blinds or Roller Blinds: Venetian Blinds

Venetian Blinds and Roller Blinds are hot picks in Australia, offering diverse styles and colours. Choosing between them boils down to what you need for your windows or simply what you like best.

When choosing blinds for your home, consider Venetian Blinds with horizontal slats made of wood, aluminium, or fabric for versatility. Easily controlled with a cord, they offer both light regulation and privacy. While they’re practical and stylish, keep in mind that their horizontal design can collect dust, requiring regular cleaning with a sponge or cloth.

Venetian Blinds or Roller Blinds: Roller Blinds

Roller Blinds are available in a wide range of colours and fabrics. They give a softer finish to a room than Venetian Blinds which are quite rigid. Depending on the fabric chosen, Roller Blinds can completely block out light and sound or allow natural light to softly illuminate a room. If you carefully consider the function of the room you require blinds for, we will be able to help you choose the right one.

Light Control

If you are looking for maximum room darkening, a thick fabric Roller Blind will be the best choice. Venetian Blinds are a much better choice if you want variable control over how much light you allow into a room.

When choosing window treatments, don’t forget about privacy! Roller blinds offer complete closure for full privacy, but you might need extra lighting. Venetian blinds, with their adjustable slats, strike a balance between privacy and natural light. If you prefer roller blinds, consider a double roller or bottom-up setup for more control over light and privacy with multiple layers of fabric.
