In no time at all, use of Venetian blinds spread through Venice, Italy and across other European nations. Of course, today Venetian blinds can be found in households and in workplaces across world.
The design of Venetian blind is simple and effective. The blind itself consists of slats of horizontal and overlapping material. The slats are multi-directional and can be used in a number of fine fashions. For example, in completely closed position, Venetian blinds effectively can eliminate all external light from entering into a room. Otherwise, slats of Venetian blinds can be adjusted to allow varying degrees of light into room. The angle can be changed to allow light in, but not prying eyes or if required, blind can be rolled right up to allow light to stream in unchecked through now unprotected glass pane.
In modern world of soft furnishings, there are generally three different types of Venetian blinds on market. From wooden Venetian blinds crafted from various types of woods. Some of these versions of Venetian blind are so intricately crafted that they add a truly elegant dimension to any residential or even commercial window treatment.
