Venetian blinds are incredibly versatile. With their clean lines and range of materials and colour options, they can be styled to suit almost any home. 

Clean lines and unobtrusive appearance 

Because of their neat, simple lines, Venetian blinds work really well with all different styles, from minimalist right through to maximalist decor. With their clean, unobtrusive appearance, they can often be considered less fussy than some fabric styles. This makes them perfect for minimalist homes that like to keep things simple or maximalist homes that don’t want the windows to steal focus. 

That’s not to say that Venetian blinds can’t become a bold style choice in their own right. With an extensive range of colours available, you can still get creative. Because maximalism is all about the aesthetic of excess, it often lends itself to bright colour palettes and a contrasting selection of textures and styles. If you decide you want to play into this with your window dressing, bright-coloured Venetian blinds can add an exciting new dimension to your decor.  

Choice of different materials

We provide Venetian blinds in a selection of materials, including aluminium, real wood and wood-effect aluminium. It’s worth considering that different materials will be better suited to different rooms. For example, wooden Venetian blinds are less suitable for kitchens and bathrooms where moisture can warp the slats. 

Versatile and made to measure

At Broadview, we specialise in creating made-to-measure blinds to fit almost any window. Because Venetian blinds only take up the dimensions of your window frame, they don’t look untidy or overwhelm the space. This makes them ideal for smaller rooms or for windows that sit above a sofa or radiator. 

They also allow you to have complete control over your privacy and shading, by adjusting the slats with a simple tilter cord mechanism to exactly how you want them. This flexibility makes them an appealing option for rooms that are overlooked by neighbours or get a lot of sunlight. 

Installation included

We offer a free home consultation service, so you can discuss your requirements with a member of our team. Measurement and fitting are also included, so you don’t have to worry about the hassle of installing your blinds yourself. Our experienced fitters will make sure that your new blinds are installed safely and correctly, so you get the most out of them for years to come.
