Though the terms 'blinds' and 'window blinds' tend to be catch-all descriptions for all window treatments, window blinds are defined as having horizontal slats (mini blinds, wood and faux wood blinds, shutters) or vertical vanes (vertical blinds and panel track blinds).  Blinds work by tilting the slats or vanes open and closed for light control and privacy.

Venetian Blinds

So, where did we get the name, "venetian blinds?" The answer is only conjecture.  One theory is that the early Venetians brought the idea of the blind from Persia back to Venice during one of their trade voyages.  Then later, this idea was brought to France by freed venetian slaves.  The name stuck and this kind of blind, one with horizontal slats, became known as venetian blinds.  What constitutes a venetian blinds varies a little between who you ask.  In the US, a venetian blind is typically a mini blind.  In the UK, use of this term is more common and describes any window blind with slats made of wood, plastic or aluminum, operated by strings or cloth.

In fact, they can easily be blended in a home, where faux woods are used in humid rooms or in areas that will require more frequent cleaning like a kitchen. Faux wood blinds combine the attractiveness of real wood with the durability, ease of cleaning and weather resistance of man made materials. Faux wood blinds, which are also called imitation wood and sometimes fake wood, are avalaible with PVC vinyl slats or composite wood.

Cordless offers easy operation and is an important safety consideration for homes with small children, as loose cords can be dangerous. You can lower the entire stack of slats to cover the entire window and adjust the slats so they are titled shut. Mini blinds, also called venetian blinds, are a classic choice with great durability. These blinds are easy to clean, long lasting, and most importantly, inexpensive.


Wood Blinds, Wooden Blinds, Discount Wood Blinds

The style that a wood blind contributes to your home is driven by several elements: the color of the slats, slat size, valance, routeless slat design, cord versus tape support, and of course, your room.
