In case you’ve been living under a rock (pun intended), there has been a certain surge of natural materials within home décor lately. Potted indoor plants have become a hugely popular ornamentation to scatter around the home and splashes of raw wood have become the feature surface for tabletops, bathroom vanity units and kitchen benches. Bringing the outdoor in is a sure-fire way to forge a connection to nature within urban living, and homemakers everywhere are latching onto this hot new trend.

While timber Venetian blinds have been used in homes around the world for a long time now, they are certainly seeing a strong comeback to complement this au naturale style. But not only are they aesthetically-pleasing with their interesting blend of rustic sophistication and cosy atmosphere, timber Venetian blinds also provide a range of advantages over other window coverings.

  • Light-controlling - Venetian blinds give you the ultimate freedom to control the amount of light entering a room. They can be lifted for total exposure or the slats can be adjusted at your desired angle to create soft filtered light. This allows you to block out the harsh summer sun and allow much needed light and heat to enter your house during the cooler months.
  • Privacy - Because you have the ultimate flexibility with light control, you can allow light to enter during the day when it’s hard for people to see in. At night you can then totally close the blind, protecting you from others being able to see into your home.
  • Eco-friendly - Timber Venetian blinds are made from natural recyclable wooden materials. This means they are hardwearing, versatile, and best of all, kind to the environment!
  • Adaptability - Due to the natural hues of these blinds, they can easily blend in with any colour scheme. Furthermore, there are plenty of timber stains on the market these days if you wish to add that extra customised touch to your blinds, or if you really want to get creative, you can even paint the timber. In this sense, timber Venetian blinds are much more adaptable to current seasonal trends than their fabric counterparts.
