Venetian blinds are very versatile, providing the homeowner with the ability to control privacy in the home whilst allowing natural daylight to filter into a room according to your preferred level of lighting. Venetian blinds are both simple and easy to use and add a contemporary feel to any room, whilst giving a window a sleek and stylish finish.
Luminos Venetian Blinds Materials
Luminos’ Venetian blinds are available in two slat widths; 25mm or 50mm. Always conscious of trends within the home and décor, Luminos offers three different types of materials to suit your personal tastes; aluminium Venetian blinds, wood effect blinds and natural wood blinds.
Ever conscious of chid-safety, Luminos Venetian blinds have been specifically designed so that as the blind is lowered or raised, the length of the cord does not lengthen or shorten at all, but rather stays the same, eliminating the danger of a child becoming entangled in the cord.
Aluminium Venetian Blinds
Luminos aluminium Venetian blinds are made from a specialised aluminium alloy, which should not be confused with low quality imitation PVC. The blinds are offered in both slat widths of 25mm and 50mm, with different material finishes available, ranging from metallic and wood effect to plain finishes. Perforated options add a high-tech finish to a blind and are the perfect accessory to today’s kitchens with steel appliances and chrome or gold fittings. Materials are available with a varying degree of block out slats to give a homeowner even more control over privacy. Aluminium Venetians are virtually fade resistant giving you blinds that will last for a long time.
Wood Effect Venetian Blinds
The texture of wood adds warmth and a natural feel to any room, as well as adding a more classic design. For those areas of South Africa subjected to wide variations in humidity and temperature, wood effect Venetian blinds offer the perfect solution and are available in a 50mm slat width.
Natural Wood Venetian Blinds
Wood adds both character and natural beauty to any room and wooden blinds are the ideal complement to wooden floors in a home. Luminos wooden Venetian blinds are made from quality light Basswood making the blinds easy to pull up and down when you need to, and are available in 50mm slat widths. Luminos natural wood slats are treated and UV resistant.
Luminos Venetian blinds are fitted standard with a high quality cord lock and a modern tilt cord mechanism, allowing for efficient and smooth tilting and lifting of the blind. Our Wood Effect and Natural Wood Venetians are supplied with a co-ordinated pelmet. For the aluminium Venetian blinds should you wish to have a pelmet please consult your dealer for options.
Motorised Venetian Blinds
Luminos Venetian 50mm slat width blinds can be operated using a motorised system from a wall switch, remote control or programmed control system, which may be integrated seamlessly with a home automation system. Luminos is proud to offer this option in association with Somfy, a world-leader in such systems.
Venetian blinds can lift, drop and tilt via remote control and it is also possible to programme the blinds to react automatically to the sunlight and temperature in a room, protecting you, furniture and plants against the harmful effects of the sun, whilst providing effective temperature control.
More info on Venetian Blinds
The versatility of Venetian blinds makes them suitable for any room in a house, but they are particularly effective in rooms such as kitchens. They can be fitted to a window of any size from small to large. They are not recommended for very large openings, such as French or patio doors and other glass doors. These openings should rather be fitted with vertical panel blinds.
Luminos blinds are made to stringent quality levels and undergo rigorous testing, giving you peace of mind. Luminos’ Venetian blinds are guaranteed for 2 years against manufacturing defects.
