Frequently asked questions
What are Venetian blinds?
Venetian blinds consist of horizontal slats suspended on ladder cords. Typically made from timber, aluminium or PVC, these classic blinds can be adjusted effortlessly to control light and privacy levels.
The easy and effective design has made this type of blind a popular choice for homes and businesses across Australia for decades.

Which rooms are Venetian blinds most suited to?
Venetian blinds are a highly versatile window covering, making them an excellent option for practically any room.
While timber Venetians are best suited to spaces that are not exposed to moisture, like living and dining areas, bedrooms and offices, PVC blinds are ideal for wet areas, including bathrooms, laundries and kitchens. Although not completely waterproof, aluminium Venetians can also be installed in these rooms.
Do Venetian blinds insulate?
Yes. In particular, aluminium Venetian blinds can be very effective at keeping heat outside during the summer and warm air inside throughout winter when the slats are closed.
That said, if insulation is your primary concern, we recommend considering cellular blinds, which are favoured for their temperature regulation capabilities.
Do venetian blinds block out light?
Yes. Venetians have been shown to block up to 95% of natural light streaming through windows. All you have to do is adjust the slats for your desired level of light.
However, if you would like the option of complete darkness, we recommend choosing a blockout blind. At Heritage Shutters & Blinds, we offer an extensive range of high-quality blinds with blackout linings.
How do I clean Venetian blinds?
To keep your Venetian blinds looking and feeling brand new, we advise gently cleaning them at least once a month.
To do this, close the slats and wipe down both sides softly with a clean microfibre cloth. You can also use a brush-head vacuum on the lowest setting to remove any dust and dirt.
For more questions about cleaning your Venetians, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team on (02) 4958 4336. We are always happy to help.
Can Venetian blinds be cut to size?
You can cut Venetian blinds to size yourself, but it’s a risky move that could leave your windows inadequately covered and your purchase wasted if things go wrong.
Thankfully, Heritage Blinds & Shutters will make sure you can skip this DIY task. Our experienced professionals provide a free measuring and fitting service to ensure your made-to-order Venetian blinds will be the perfect fit for your window.

Our premium-quality Venetian blinds last up to 10 years or more if maintained properly (and kept out of reach of little hands or playful pets!).
What’s more, you can rest assured knowing all of our products come with a full manufacturer’s guarantee.
