Aluminium or Wooden Venetian Blinds
Which is Right for You?
Bedrooms and Living Rooms
Bedrooms and living rooms are low moisture areas. So you don’t have to worry about your wooden Venetians becoming warped. Due to steam or coated with oils.
You can’t beat wooden Venetian blinds when you’re aiming for a warm, traditional feel. In your bedroom décor or living room. They also bring a touch of elegance and class, no matter which room they are placed.
They are also incredibly easy to wipe clean of dust. As wood is a very solid material that is difficult to damage. Simply angle the slats down and wipe the dust away.
Bathrooms & Kitchens
Aluminium Venetians are generally considered much more suitable for bathrooms and kitchens. This is because of the high humidity levels present on a daily basis.
Wood, whilst durable, can begin to rot, stain or warp when exposed to high levels of moisture. Which you don’t have to worry about with aluminium Venetian blinds. The shiny, moisture-resistant surface of aluminium Venetians also makes removing grease from cooking incredibly easy. As they are more tolerant of cleaning products.
Bathrooms and kitchens also tend to lean towards paler colour schemes. So aluminium Venetian blinds will often match your decor. However, if you want a splash of colour, then Insignia have aluminium Venetians in a wide variety of colour options.
If you believe that wooden Venetians would suit your bathroom or kitchen rather than aluminium, then we have a large range of PVC laminate wood effect Venetians to choose from. So you get the moisture durability of aluminium. But with the traditional appearance of wood.
