Popular Venetian and Vertical Blind Terminology

Window coverings not only are a great addition to an interior design scheme, but they also offer privacy and refuge from sunlight. From wooden slat and venetian blinds, to shutters, curtains and awnings, the variety of available window coverings is immense. In order to have a better, more comprehensive understanding of the different window coverings available, it is important to understand the terminology associated with them. Below are several terms to be familiar with when researching blinds, curtains, shutters and the like.

  • Braided Ladder - An element of a horizontal blind which supports slats. Constructed of two parallel cords connected at right angles to each other by short strings called rungs, the slats are supported by the rungs.
  • Cellular Shade - Any shade which, when utilized, creates air spaces in the form of tubes or cells in order to increase thermal efficiency, sound absorption, or opacity.
  • Convolute Roller - A shade roller made of cardboard which is laminated into a thick tube. Generally used on inexpensive, standard-sized roller shades.
  • Head Rail - The element of a window covering, normally at the top, which is attached to the installation brackets and houses the operational components, like a cordlock and carriers, of the window covering.
  • Louver - An element of a blind, usually a vertical blind, similar to a slat but may be made of cloth or a rigid material like plastic, aluminum, or wood.
  • Pleated Shade - Any shade in which the fabric is folded and creased in an accordion-like manner. Similar to cellular shade, but lacking air cells.
  • Venetian Blind - Any horizontal blind. Usually in reference to older style blinds.
  • Vertical Blind - Any blind with vertically oriented vanes, like louvers.

    Blinds not only provide privacy, they also add an element of style to any room. Venetian and vertical blinds are just two types to choose from, depending on your theme and interior design sense. Venetian blinds differ from vertical blinds in that they feature horizontal slats connected by a string mechanism, controlled by a long, thin rod. Vertical blinds, on the other hand, are vertical in length, boasting thicker slats. They are typically attached to a roller at the top, and are easily opened and closed. For the environmentally conscious, some blinds are made of bamboo. Others are made of aluminum, wood, or vinyl. Some blinds are more expensive because they insulate and protect windows. This is important to many home owners, especially those living in older houses, because heat escapes through windows very easily. Let in lots of light during the day, and turn the blinds down at night for optimum privacy. Light control is left up to you, a little different than heavy fabric curtains which tend to be darker and less mobile. Providers of blinds and shades, online and in store, often offer custom services made to fit your particular window space, cutting Venetian or vertical blinds to your specifications. Blinds are sold in home improvement stores, discount stores, and specialty curtain shops. Decorative accents can also be found in retail stores, from throw pillows to area rugs to general décor. Installation is one major service of Venetian and vertical blinds stores. Technicians are on hand to provide delivery and set-up of home and office blinds. Bedrooms, dining rooms, living rooms, and kitchens are all great places in a house to install blinds in a variety of designs and materials, such as fabric or wood. Blinds providers may also have design consultants on staff to assist consumers.
