Prior to now, the average Nigerian believed Venetian blinds were meant for basically offices or other places of business. But thanks to professional interior decorating outfits in the likes of Kairos Timeless Style amongst others, for bringing the use of Venetian blinds in the stead of fabric curtains. The embrace of this trend has by the day become widely accepted. Venetian blinds are a type of window covering, nearly always found on the inside of the window, or over windows as the case may be in Nigeria where metal burglary proofs do not allow for it to be placed on the insides of the window. Venetian blinds, usually made of wood, metal or plastic, are slatted blinds consisting of a number of long horizontal strips attached in parallel rows. The slates are usually connected with strings such that they may be pulled to either allow light to pass through them by becoming parallel with the window-sill or turned flat to block light from the outside. Usually, the turning of the slates is accomplished by rotating a metal or plastic piece found at the upper-corner of some blinds or by the pulling of a string.  Pulling a string also allows the slates to be raised, to the point of removing them entirely from obscuring the window. In addition to Venetian blinds giving rooms a contemporary ambience, they have some advantage over the conventional fabric curtains. Nigeria is hot by nature. Venetian blinds allow for easy ventilation when tilted open without compromising the privacy of the interior. Also, it is easier to clean Venetian blinds; you just wipe with a soft cloth or duster. This saves you the troubles of bringing down curtains, having them laundered, and hanging them back up again. Wooden blinds are the most durable, as the plastic or metallic ones tend to curve at the ends with time. The wooden blinds come in various colours and shades to suit different tastes. Finishes include mahogany, walnut, natural wood, pure white, black, cherry, and oak wood amongst others.
