Interior design is a lot more than furniture arrangement and color patterns. A good interior designer will take all of the elements of a room into consideration before doing anything. The goal is to create a space where each item is held to a theme, a color scheme or a design goal. So, if you are trying to create a sleek, clean, minimalist modern look, you don’t want to use a traditional window treatment. And a modern cellular shade is going to contrast badly if a room is decorated in the Victorian or traditional fashion. Let’s take a closer look at a popular blind used in traditional and modern interior designs: the Venetian blind.
Venetian Blinds for a Traditional Feel
Venetian blinds are traditional in both their design and purpose. These blinds feature horizontal parallel slats that can be raised, lowered and adjusted by a lift chord passing through each slat depending on your light needs. Traditionally, the slats were made of wood, but more modern materials like aluminum, faux wood, and polymer materials.
A Low Cost window treatment
Since Venetian blinds have been in use for so long, are made of relative inexpensive materials, and feature an easily manufactured design, they are great if you are looking to add some traditional window treatments to your home.
Venetian blinds are great for nearly any room and window, from the small bathroom window to the large dining room bay window.
Another versatile feature of Venetian blinds is their ability to be incorporated into both modern and traditional interior designs. A clean, crisp modern interior setting is a great place for aluminum blinds or a light colored faux wood polymer. A traditional highly ornate and dense interior setting can be a great place to put real wood blinds, giving that traditional Mediterranean feel.
