We have just completed fitting Vertical and Wooden Venetian blinds to a house in New Eltham, SE9.
Our customer was looking for Vertical blinds to replace some old Verticals that he had fitted many years ago which were in need of new Headrails and Louvres. After spending a little while looking at different fabrics the blind fabric chosen was Avensis Ivory. This fabric is completely plain and allows light to pass through but still offering privacy.
The Vertical blind has a wand control which is used to control both the tilting of the louvres/Slats and to slid the whole blind back when it's not required. The wand control also offers a complete child safe solution which removes the need for potentially dangerous cords.
He also chose some wooden venetians for different rooms of the house which would not take up too much room on the window sill. 25mm slat size seemed to be the best option and True White was the Wooden Venetian range.
