Supplying Venetian Blinds For the New York City Area

The Blinds Source has been helping New York City residents find the perfect blinds for their home for over 20 years. One of the varieties we offer is venetian blinds, which are a staple of modern design, and for great reason. They have a minimal, modern look, yet are incredibly functional and well-designed. They can be lowered in seconds, then adjusted to let in the perfect amount of light or even air. With made-to-measure venetian blinds, decorators can further customize the blinds based on the amount of coverage they need. These blinds are a classic fundamental design that is very difficult to go wrong with.

What are Venetian Blinds?

Venetian blinds are a type of horizontal blind that first came to prominence around the turn of the 20th century. They are some of the most functional blinds ever created, so they were quickly adopted in home and office alike. They function as a series of horizontal blinds that can be rolled up instantly by pulling down on a cord. But they can also be turned by a rod, so that they lie flat or angle downwards. This means that this type of blind can let in an adjustable amount of light while remaining lowered, a unique feature that sets them apart.

Advantages of Venetian Blinds

Light variability/control.

Unlike other blinds, they can be fully lowered yet still adjust to let in the perfect amount of light — no dark rooms with one bright shaft of light. Homeowners, or even office workers, who want to control their living or work areas precisely can get blinds made to measure and have a full range of options to control their environment.

Ease of use.

No one likes to raise or lower blinds, or pull curtains side to side, every time they want to adjust the light coming into their area. That’s the magic of venetian blinds. While it’s easy to raise the horizontal blinds and allow a full window of sunlight to stream in, it’s also easy to twist a rod and have the blinds go from a downwards angle to an outwards angle —letting in exactly as much light as you desire.

Appearance (wooden).

A horizontal blind is simply eye catching. Curtains are the norm in classic decor, but horizontal blinds capture the beauty of the early twentieth century. The Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building were both outfitted floor-to-ceiling with these blinds. Wooden horizontal blinds provide a more forward-thinking look than more conventional appearances. In fact, these blinds can provide an excellent contrast with the wood or metal already used to construct windows.


One distinctive feature of venetian blinds is their capacity for privacy. With curtains and traditional horizontal blinds, securing your privacy means that you’ll no longer be able to see out your window. With these blinds you can enjoy the pleasure of natural light without worrying about neighbors looking in. This can be especially useful if you live in a highly populated area, like New York City.
