Here are the most popular types of window blinds, and a little about each one:
Wooden Blinds: These blinds are made of wood, of course. The slats of wooden blinds tend to be thicker than other types of blinds, but they add the warm soft touch of wood to the design of a room so most people do not mind that they are a bit thicker. They open and close just by flipping the slats. You can visit http://www.bestdealshutters.com.au/product/venetian-blinds-sydney.html to know more about the window coverings.
Venetian Blinds: These are by far the most popular types of window blinds. They are typically made of aluminum, but also of plastic. The curved slats in the blinds come in a variety of widths from 1 to 3 inches.
Woven Blinds: Woven blinds are not designed with slats like the above ones. They are tightly woven with no spaces between them. When they are drawn, they offer maximum filtering from sunlight, but they can only be pulled up or down (by means of a pull string) and so do not allow the filtering flexibility of slat blinds.
Mini-Blinds: These blinds are very narrow as small as 1/2 inch- and have become extremely popular because their narrowness allows for a very tight close, which makes the surface appear almost flat. Another feature that makes them so popular is the fact that they come in such a wide variety of colors so that they can match almost any room.
