WINDOW treatments are very important when it comes to the overall atmosphere of the home. Whether sleek or simple decorating styles, whichever that suit your taste and pocket, I always say go ahead with it.
The new trend in interior décor is on window treatment - wooden Venetian blinds.These blinds are not really new in the market; nope they have been there for many years, the only thing that changed is that they have been turned from Venetian windows to Venetian blinds.
When I was growing up, many homes had these wooden Venetian windows until when designers and architects came up with modern windows that saw the fading of Venetian windows. Fast forward, thanks to changes in trends, which borrow a leaf from the old, the Venetian window designs were re-modeled to be wooden venetian blinds.
A mention of wooden blinds, you get stares from people trying to imagine how a wooden blind would look like- but in real wooden venetian blinds are chic and modern, they also offer style and comfort but above all they are eco-friendly.
These wooden blinds are not in the market for the first time, no. They have been seen around many years, but, were left as a reserve for the big hotels and some exotic resorts because they were considered too heavy for home windows and expensive.
Thanks to exposure and the need to live in stylish homes- more people are slowly adopting to these stylish wooden blinds fixed in their homes at affordable prices.
If you feel your home needs some uplifting in one way or the other, these blinds can add that natural element to your interior décor because they are made up of wood. Matching these blinds to the rest of the furniture will be easy because of the natural way that wood blends with everything.
Wooden venetian blinds can also add some context and texture to your interior. If you hang them from the ceiling to the floor, they might appear monumental and essential part of your interior. If they cover just enough of the window, they appear like a curios detail. Another amazing trick that can be done with wooden venetian blinds is that if placed wall to wall, can make an illusion of a full wall.
These wooden blinds come in various designs to choose from. There are also different ways to manipulate the blinds: by cords, tapes, turning wands and much more. Venetian blinds can also add some oomph to your room by becoming the center piece.
These blinds look delicate, but the truth is that they are strong and can last long if well taken care of; they are also easy to clean and maintain.
Some people think that these blinds are too heavy and might interfere with nature, as matter of allowing enough light and breeze in the house; worry not because they work just the same way other blinds work- they are versatile as they are functional.
When it comes to window coverings, and blinds in particular Venetian blinds are perfect for creating the clean, uncluttered look desired in many homes today.
Trends come and go, but decorative fixtures like wooden venetian blinds are timeless pieces and will remain so for many years to come.
