About Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds actually originated in Persia and were brought over to Europe in around 1760. The French still refer to them as Persian blinds or les Persienes.

Venetian blinds are a window covering available in a variety of styles. The slats are horizontal and control the amount of light that enters the room using a rotating wand or using a pull cord.


Very difficult to list the quality because of the many differences between Venetian blind manufactures as there are there’s so many variables.  The quality is often determined by the length of the guarantee provided for the blinds.

What are the parts

There are 3 main parts that make up Venetian blinds. Head rail, Bottom rail, Slats and controls. The wand rotate the slats while the cords are used to lift and lower the blinds.

The Head rail is at the top of the blinds. It houses the components that operate the tilting, lifting and lowering of the blinds as well as the tapes that hold the slats.

The Bottom rail is a base rail that allow the tapes that hold the slats to have stability and provides weight to the blinds. Also allows the blind to be clipped in at the bottom.

 Operation Types

We have only two types of operations with Venetian Blinds in Melbourne, Cord and wand. The option of motorised venetian blinds  are available from some other blinds companies, however we simply choose not to use this option. In our experience, the simple option is always best and lasts longest.

What finishes are available?

Matt, gloss and marble painted finishes.

Classic Aluminium Venetian Blinds – 50mm

50mm slats made from roll formed aluminium. The head rail is manufactured using 50mm wide x 40mm high steel. The aluminium is very good at deflecting heat making them great for summer and good for keeping your room warm in winter. 50mm aluminium Venetian blinds leave minimal gaps when installed into the window recess. You control the light using cords that when pulled rotate the slats. The strong steel head rail blinds can be made with large widths.

Slimline Aluminium Venetian Blinds – 25mm

Slimline Venetian blinds are made from 25mm slats using roll formed spring tempered aluminium alloy. The pre treated and oven baked paint process ensures a tough, scratch resistant surface that retains the original colour for years without fading. Our painting process conforms to Australian standards ASTM D2244 (There is no lead used in our paints). The aluminium is very good at deflecting heat. The thin slats almost disappear when opened in the horizontal position. Very light weight and can be controled using a wand that rotates the slats. The slimline Venetian head rail is made from zincalume steel for added strength and is 25mm wide and 25mm high. The slimline bottom rail is 22.5mm wide and 10.2mm high. Both colour matched to the slats. The paint finish is baked polyester enamel over chromate convention coating and chip resistant.
