Fauxwood Venetian Blinds

Fauxwood Venetian Blinds will greatly reduce the light and heat that enters into any room. That said it is common for the slats, particularly in larger blinds, not to close fully against each other. This means that you will get light leaks or light glow visible between the slats.

Made from compressed polystyrene and coated in polyurethane Fauxwood Venetian Blinds are extremely durable. They are not affected by moisture making them an ideal choice for bedrooms, high traffic living areas and bathrooms.

To further enhance the quality of our Fauxwood Venetian Blinds we space the lifting cords and ladder tapes much closer together than other manufacturers. Where other manufacturers have the first tape and lifting cord 150mm from the end of the slat, we recommend 100mm as the best practice. As a result of this the lifting cord mechanism and the tilt mechanism will be on opposite sides of the blind. Should you require both mechanisms on the same side please stipulate this on you order.

The tilt mechanism allows the user to tilt the slats back for privacy and forward to allow more filtered light into the room.

Fauxwood Venetian Blinds are available in 50mm and 63mm slat sizes. A great accompaniment to Plantation Shutters 63mm Fauxwood Venetian Blinds are sometimes referred to a shutter blinds.

Well suited to either Inside Mount or Outside Mount Fauxwood Venetian Blinds come standard with a 90mm valance or pelmet as standard.
