Blue Venetian Blinds
From Pale Sky to Dark Navy - a Blue Blind for any Mood!
When we turn to look out of the window during the day most people would prefer to see a nice clear blue sky. Unfortunately in the UK we don’t get to see this as often as we would like and very frequently what we see is different shades of grey instead. So why not plan your interior design scheme to include that uplifting colour into your view by picking a sky blue venetian blind for your window? If you like the idea of a blue made to measure venetian blind at your window there are many different shades to choose from, from the palest soft duck-egg blue to a dark, almost black midnight blue.
We think most of the made to measure blue venetian blinds that our customers choose are for the bathroom. Blue has always been a popular colour for bathroom interior design schemes with watery aquatic themes and nautical themes being current favourites. A navy or sea blue bathroom venetian blind can be teamed with matching wall and floor tiling in large panels, isolated feature tiles or decorative bands. To finish the colour scheme the colours can be extended with matching prints on the wall, towels and bathmats and even toothbrushes and back scrubbers.
We think custom made venetian blinds will always be the most practical type of blind to use in the bathroom because of the flexibility they offer for light control and privacy both at night and during the day. When you are using a bathroom during the day it is normally desirable to have as much natural light as possible but also to maintain privacy from view from the outside. This is where a venetian bathroom blind works best as the slats of the blind can be angled for privacy but still to allow plenty of openness which will mean lots of natural light will flood in. A venetian will never block as much light as a blackout blind and light will always leak around the slats of the blind, however this is seldom a problem in the bathroom. At night most venetians will allow no view through the slats so will maintain privacy completely when the slats are closed.
Blue venetian blinds are not just for the bathroom though and there are still plenty of customers who fit these window blinds in their kitchens, lounges, dining rooms and conservatories as well as in the bedroom. If you are looking for venetians then as well as looking at the wide colour range you can pick from you should also have a look at the different finishes that the slats are offered in. Aluminium venetian blinds in plain colours can have slats in gloss or matt finishes as well as with other effects such as metallic lustres, patterns and with perforations. There are also blue wooden venetian blinds in painted and stained blue finishes which may be just the economic alternative you are after for a painted plantation shutter effect.
