Aluminium vs Timber Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds are a beloved household staple for so many reasons. They're a modern and functional window treatment that's versatile - and stylish - to boot. They've got a safe and simple-to-use chain drive system for a neater, streamlined appearance, and they're less expensive than their shutter or curtain counterparts, too. You quite literally can't go wrong!

Aluminium vs Timber Venetian Blinds

Choosing the right Venetian blinds

But one of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to venetians is the difference between aluminium and timber - what are the benefits of each material and which will work best in your space?

We've put together a list of the major drawcards of both aluminium and timber to hopefully make choosing your venetian blinds that bit easier!

Aluminium Venetian Blinds

One of the biggest benefits of aluminium venetian blinds is that they're basically maintenance-free. As a non-corrosive material protected by a naturally occurring oxide film, aluminium venetians are highly durable and moisture-resistant. Requiring barely more than a light dusting from time to time, they're about as fuss-free as it gets for such a practical, functional window dressing.

Biggest drawcards: Maintenance-free, stylish and affordable.

Timber Venetian Blinds

If you love the classic look of natural wood, timber venetians are for you. Wood is also an efficient insulator, meaning less heat will enter your home during summer and less will escape during winter. Options include Woodlux (a 60% timber 40% PVC blend) available in a bright, white finish and Cedar Wood, which captures the warmth of natural wood in a light-to-medium or medium-to-dark lacquered finish. With a matching pelmet for a smart and stylish appearance, timber venetians are a super-chic choice.

Biggest drawcards: Temperature control, noise reduction, warmth of natural wood.
