  8. Wooden vs Aluminium Venetian Blinds

    Wooden venetian blinds

    Should you choose wooden Venetian blinds or aluminium Venetian blinds for your home? Venetian blinds are a classic design for your property, but the material they're made from can determine whether or not they perform well. Some older Venetian blinds can feel like they're stuck in the past. You might not get a design that deals well with solar gain or heat retention, and it could cost more than it should too.

    Wooden Venetian blinds might have a timeless look, but they can feel rather dated these days. Blinds like these can struggle after a few years, as wood isn't that durable of a material. And, once the blinds begin to wear down, your living space could be more susceptible to glare and cold temperatures, and it could even help intruders target your home.

    As a result, aluminium Venetian blinds are becoming more and more popular. With precious metal inside and innovative design techniques, your new blinds could last for decades, reduce
