Venetian blinds are light, easy to clean and come in a huge selection of designer colours, finishes and textures. Have the blinds made to measure for each specific window. The blinds come with a tilt control on one side and a raise control on the other side of the head rail. The cord ladder and the head rail is normally colour co coordinated with the colour of the slat in the venetian blind.
The Tilting operation is very easy to operate. The raising operation may require a little more strenght for blinds of a large width and drop.
The headrail for a 25mm or 15mm slat is compact enough to fit to the back of a door and can provide a good solution to cover windows in kitchen or patio doors.
The blind headrail is normally attached to the wall with swivel brackets. These brackets sound more complicated than they are to erect. Once the brackets are attached to the wall or door the headrail simply clips into them. Box brackets are sometimes supplied for large blinds or when the venetian blinds have 50mm slats.
