Venetian Blinds – Wooden or Aluminium?

Venetian blinds are one of the most versatile options for your windows.  Whether your window is large or small, Venetian blinds offer a stylish finish.   They have the added bonus of being easy to clean and maintain, as well as being very hard-wearing.  

The question we are often asked though, is which is best – wooden or aluminium?

The choice is, of course, mostly down to personal taste – while cost is often a factor too.  Here at right price blinds we source our aluminium Venetian blinds in bulk from Eastern Europe, allowing us to sell them to you at one of the most competitive prices in the market.

But if you’re lucky enough that cost isn’t a factor, here are some pros and cons of both styles to help you make up your mind.
