Venetian vs Roman Blinds

When it comes to choosing the right shading solution for your property, it is important to consider which products are likely to best suit your needs. Although quite similar, Venetian and Roman blinds offer a variety of different features and benefits that will help to compliment any home. We take a look at both blinds and see which one would be the right choice for you!

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds are a popular choice among many and is a suitable option for both modern and traditional homes. Most Venetian blinds are made out of either aluminium or wooden materials. This ensures to provide a stylish approach whilst also offering many practicalities.


Aluminium Venetian blinds are often available in a variety of colours. Because of this, you will be able to find the perfect option that matches the rest of your interior style. Wooden Venetian blinds also come with a range of shades and wooden tones, all of which are sure to add a sense of modernity and luxury to your home.


Venetian blinds are made out of strong and long-lasting materials that make them extremely durable to factors such as dust and moisture. Because of this, wooden and especially aluminium Venetian blinds are really easy to clean. This makes them the perfect shading solution for kitchens and bathrooms.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are a great shading solution if you are looking for an alternative to curtains. Made from strong fabric and thick materials, roman blinds are guaranteed to offer excellent protection and privacy into any home.


When it comes to the style of roman blinds, they can be seen as quite traditional. However, the range of colours and patterns that this blind has to offer is never ending! Because of this, you will be sure to find the best option that compliments all of your property needs.


Due to its thick fabric, roman blinds are a lot harder to clean than other shading solutions. However, these blinds are commonly fitted in lounges and bedrooms so heavy factors such as moisture, heat and dust aren’t as common in these areas.

Beautiful shutters and fabulous service

Cannot recommend Insignia enough Brian came along on a bank holiday to measure up and gave us a good price and realistic delivery date. The shutters arrived bang on time and Pav and Matt came to install them. Lovely guys who were polite, friendly and didn’t leave a speck of dust behind. We now have beautiful shutters in five rooms and could not be more pleased!
