Thinking about saving money by investing in some of the cheap “plastic” venetian blinds on the market?
These blinds can be purchased for anything between £10 & £25. However, proper venetian blinds have steel top & bottom rails, and aluminium slats.
The “plastic” versions are all plastic, including the headrails. I have often been called out to repair a blind and got there to find a “plastic” venetian, where the headrail has snapped under the strain of the blind. Unfortunately there is no repair. These “plastic” blinds also do not like the sun. “Plastic” venetian blinds that gets regular exposure to the sun will warp & buckle within just a few short months. So be warned, “plastic” venetian blinds are a false economy, and now you know why!
