How to find the ideal room for your Venetian blinds

Venetian blinds can go up, down, and tilt; that makes them ideal for rooms in which the light level is going to change dramatically throughout the day. Here’s a couple of suggestions:

 

-    The Living Room: Sometimes you want the sun flooding in, sometimes you want a bit of twilight, and other times it’s movie night. Venetian blinds allow you to do it all with nothing more than the flick of the wrist.

 

-    The Kitchen: Having a coffee as the sun comes up is what the breakfast bar is all about. Venetians ensure you’re not dazzled when the sun is low in the sky. They’ll also work wonders during your Friday night takeaway session and when you have the whole family over for Sunday lunch.

How to wash Venetian blinds?

When you want to know how to clean venetian blinds, vinegar is just what you need. Spray it directly onto your blinds, leave for 30 seconds, and then simply wipe away. It’s a great way to keep them looking brand new without using any synthetic cleaning products.

Because everything is made to measure, it will depend on the size and style of blind you’re comparing. The larger the blind, the more they cost, and wooden finishes can cost a little more. They’re certainly worth it if you want to make your home smile though!
