However, the remote can only be used to tilt the slats, you will have to manually elevate and lower the blinds. If the blind is powered electrically though, it won't have to be elevated or lowered manually.
The process involved in cleaning and maintaining Venetian blinds is easy. But you have to be careful especially when you are dealing with painted Venetian blinds. You have to ensure that the slats do not come in contact in any rough way as this could cause a scratch and dent in the paintwork.
The problem with having a scratch slat is that they will be at the mercy of corrosive elements and moisture and this does nothing but weakens and deteriorates the condition of the slat. You should also make sure that you do not push or force the slats to a side if you are trying to take a peek outside for whatever reason.
This is necessary because force can make the slat to bend and this will ruin the total look of the window. If this happens, you may also need to replace with new slats. You can only do this by removing the whole blinds and installing a new one. This will gulp money, it will.
So how do you clean your Venetian blinds? You can use a vacuum cleaner. Make sure the slats are closed before you start cleaning. Start vacuuming from top to bottom. Hold the blind firmly with one hand and use the free hand to clean.
Be careful while cleaning that the blind is not handled roughly. If you do not want to use the vacuum cleaner, you can make use of a soft dry cloth. Note the key words here, "soft and dry". A wet cloth is not advisable because it will leave behind stains. You can also wear soft and clean gloves when cleaning.
The glove material should be cotton. Metal Venetian blinds can also be made for custom windows but the manufacturer would need the width and drop information. The width would get measured in about three places and the minimum measurement will be taken note of. The dado rails and tiles would be taken into deliberation when measuring. The drop would also be measured in about two to three places.
If the intention is to install the metal Venetian blind outside the recess of the window, an extra 50mm would be calculated on each side. Venetian blinds are really cool and are rest assured that they would be absolutely ideal for creating a heavenly feel in your home. Another type of blind I would have loved to write about is the vertical blinds, especially when it is for the living room. You will find more about it here: shop with living room vertical blinds
