At Bromley Blinds, we stock both Venetian blinds and roller blinds. Venetian blinds have slats which can be adjusted to let in different amounts of light and heat. Roller blinds, on the other hand, consist of a single, continuous sheet of material that can be raised or lowered using a roller. A FAQ often asked by potential customers is: “Which type is best for your home? Would we be better off with the slats of Venetian blinds or the continuous material of roller blinds?”
The truth is, both options have their merits, so you should give some consideration to your choice. Today on the blog we’ll talk about the advantages and drawbacks of both types of blinds to help you decide.
The most important advantage associated with Venetian blinds is the level of control they give you. You can adjust the amount of heat and light that gets through your blinds to a very fine degree by repositioning the slats. Naturally, roller blinds don’t offer the same type of fine control. However, Venetian blinds have more moving parts than their roller-using counterparts, which means that they may be more fragile or prone to damage. Ergo, they may need to be replaced slightly more often if they are in constant use.
If you need to exercise a high level of control over the temperature and brightness of your home, Venetian blinds are the best option for you. However, if you need a thoroughly hard-wearing window-covering, you may wish to consider an alternative set of blinds instead.
Roller blinds are affordable, durable and easy-to-clean. Fundamentally, they only consist of a continuous sheet of material on a roller. What’s more, they are operated by a very simple mechanism. This makes them affordable to produce and therefore cheap to purchase. It also makes them hard to damage: there’s not much that can go wrong with a roller blind. Nonetheless, they are still stylish. Because they don’t contain many fiddly parts, they are also very easy to keep clean and new-looking.
Of course, roller blinds don’t offer the same level of control as Venetian ones, but if you need an option that will last indefinitely and which is easy to maintain, they are the right choice for you.
Regardless of which type of blinds you decide on, we have a gorgeous range for you to select from at Bromley Blinds.
