Aluminium blinds are a very modern variation on a traditional blind design. Venetian blinds have been a popular choice for homes and businesses for decades, but with the advent of new home furnishing materials like aluminium, the humble Venetian blind now offers a whole new look for the discerning buyer.
Many retailers stock aluminium Venetian blinds as a budget choice as they are very economical to produce since aluminium is much cheaper than natural wood. As well as a traditional metallic finish, aluminium blinds can also be bought in a variety of different colours. From bright primary shades through pale creams and beige, there is a whole rainbow of choice available to those looking for a stylish aluminium blind.
Like other types of Venetian blind, blinds made from aluminium are exceptionally easy to keep clean. This makes them very suitable for rooms where moisture and humidity is a problem, for example the bathroom, shower room, or kitchen. To keep them clean, the blind slats can be wiped down with a damp cloth or duster. In cases of severe grime build up, the whole blind can be removed and soaked in some soapy water for a more thorough clean. Unlike wooden blinds, those made from aluminium are resistant to mould and mildew, which can be a common affliction in bathrooms and shower rooms.
In the kitchen, aluminium shades are perfect for rooms featuring modern acrylic units and metallic appliances. Fussy curtains would look very much out of place in this style of room and therefore blinds are a far better choice. Venetian blinds made from aluminium are also less susceptible to the grease and moisture inherent in a kitchen environment.
If you are seeking a cutting edge modern feel to a room, a stylish metallic aluminium Venetian blind is the perfect accessory. They are often a popular choice in kids’ rooms as many teenagers like the clean lines and simplicity of aluminium Venetian shades. When combined with a decorative scheme based on monochromatic tones and minimalist furnishings, an aluminium shade is perfect for those teenagers who hate the fussy and old-fashioned look of traditional curtains.
Aluminium Venetian shades can also look great in the office, whether at home or work. The clean simple lines of an Venetian blind is perfect for the working environment where excess decoration only serves to distract from the real purpose of the room—which is productivity and work. Most of us do not need any excuse to stare at something other than the computer screen, so a pair of heavily patterned curtains featuring a busy floral design would be a serious hindrance as you would probably spend hours making virtual daisy chains instead of rationalising the excel spreadsheet your boss sent you.
For the conservatory, Venetian aluminium blinds are offer a nice modern touch if you are tired of the more traditional bamboo or wooden shades. Combined with a soft leather sofa and a few verdant plants, you will have a cozy and functional space uncluttered with the chintzy fabrics so often favored in conservatories by many people.
