Venetians - Fauxwood
Versatile timber-look venetians add elegance and style to any room. Crafted from durable, water resistant material, they are a perfect addition to bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms. Choose from ivory or plain shades.
Fauxwood vs Timber Venetian Blinds
If you love Timber Venetian Blinds, but your budget is tight, Fauxwood Venetians are the perfect choice, as they give you the look of real timber at a fraction of the price. Carpet Court’s affordable range of Fauxwood Venetians is available in two shades of contemporary cool; white or ivory. Both these colours will add instant freshness to your interiors and create a Scandi inspired décor.
Venetians vs Plantation Shutters
While plantation shutters are a huge interior design trend, they are a much more expensive option than venetian blinds. Choosing Fauxwood Venetians is ideal if you’re on a budget, as they give your home the general design vibe of plantation shutters at a fraction of the cost.
Can I install Fauxwood Venetian Blinds in wet areas?
Yes, Fauxwood Venetians are made from water resistant polystyrene, which means they have a high resistance to humidity, heat and moisture. The fact that they will resist buckling or warping makes them ideal for areas where real timber is not typically used such as bathrooms, kitchens and laundries.
I have young children? Are these blinds suitable?
The material used in Fauxwood Venetians is designed so they won’t fade or mark easily. So if you have young children with sticky fingers or crayons, these blinds are ideal. You can also install them in sunny spots such as the kid’s playroom, as they will retain their original shade for years to come without fading.
How are Venetian Blinds constructed?
Venetian Blinds have horizontal slats which are placed one above another. This means they can be rotated so that they overlap with one side facing inward, and then in the opposite direction to overlap with the other side facing inward. Venetian Blinds are a great choice if you’d like the option of being able to easily adjust the input of light coming into your room at any given time of the day or night.
Will these blinds provide enough privacy?
Obviously if you’re after 100% privacy, you can’t go past blockout blinds. However, Venetian Blinds do give you a lot of options for privacy, as they allow you to control how much light enters the home. To adjust the light input, all you need to do is simply angle the blades to anywhere from fully open to fully closed. If you want the maximum amount of light to come into a room, just draw the venetian blinds completely up to let light stream through the window. If you want more privacy, simply close the blinds as tight as possible.
How low maintenance are Fauxwood Venetians?
Fauxwood Venetian Blinds are an extremely low maintenance option, as you don’t need to wash them to keep them clean. In fact, all you need do is wipe your Fauxwood Venetian slats over with a dry or damp cloth occasionally. Or quickly run the soft vacuum nozzle over them when you are doing other vacuuming around the home. Easy.
Will Fauxwood Venetians be a suitable choice for bedrooms?
Why not? This range will add a cool, fresh look to a bedroom, and you can think about adding a combination of window coverings to add softness and colour. Design guru and Carpet Court ambassador Darren Palmer advises, “when it comes to bedrooms, you should always consider not just daytime privacy but night time privacy and daytime light tightness. Pairing a translucent or semi opaque blind will give you all the levels of light and privacy control you need.”
