The popularity of real wood venetian blinds has never been greater than they are right now. Real wooden blinds are now an affordable product for most households in the UK due to more efficient production methods and the easier sourcing of more affordable and sustainable materials. The sheer luxury of a real wood blind brings a wonderful warmth and depth to the decor and interior design of any room. Venetian blinds come in a whole range of slat widths from 25mm to 65mm giving a greater variety in light control and look. Real untreated light and dark woods are readily available as well as a massive range of contemporary colours including white, grey and black painted options. Look out for new gloss options in bright, vibrant colours which will be the on-trend for 2019.
Faux Wood Blinds
Get the look of real wood with the less expensive faux wood blind option was once the major selling point of faux wood blinds. Shortly after consumers realised that the faux wood option was a terrific product which was the ideal blind for kitchens and bathrooms and indeed for every room in the home due to the durability, easy wipe clean slat as well as the 100% waterproof attraction. These blinds are now available in every colour imaginable and it is almost impossible to tell them apart from the real wood originals.
Aluminium Venetian Blinds
Window dressings are no different from all the other fashions that are around us and to prove the point the ‘retro’ aluminium 25mm slat venetian blind has made a roaring comeback in 2018. Bright, vibrant and bold colours have put this blind back on the window dressing catwalk and the sales this year have had a massive uplift.
