Even though Venetian blinds can be traced from accounts dated 1760 in Venice, it is said that such originated from Persia and not Italy.

This kind of blinds was patented in 1760 and debuted when it was used as window covers for St. Peter’s Church.

In appearance, Venetian blinds consist of horizontal slats and a set of pull cords for its lifting mechanism. Such allows a user to adjust these slats as to their light control preferences and other related room design.
In comparison with vertical blinds, the panels of these horizontal blinds can be moved from left to right while the former are adjusted in an up and down direction. Venetian blinds come more beneficial with this feature because such cannot be reached easily by children or pets, therefore making it less prone to damage and inconvenience.
In terms of appearance, the two blinds do not have much differences as both come in a variety of sizes, colors and styles. Both also come in different structures as both can be made from wood, plastic, aluminum, etc. The same can be said for their practical use and the client only needs to choose which is aligned to their preferred interior designs.
