Curtains can be regarded as just one simple fabric that covers your windows, but they can also be an added decoration to make your interiors look better and alive.

Venetian blinds also consist of horizontal flats that opens and closes together when you either pull their strings up and down.

However, Venetian Blinds accumulate dust very often, and you might need to clean them from time to time.

Still, you can use them in kitchens and bathrooms, as they do not stain and odour when liquid splatters come in contact with them.
