Timber Venetian blinds not only provide design, privacy and light control, they also add value to a home. Like any home investment, blinds of exceptional quality will provide long term value and appreciation.
Timber is the classic choice for venetian blinds given its natural beauty, stability, lightness and infinite finishing options. Veneta timber blinds are crafted from Phoenixwood; a stable lightweight plantation timber which has been used for generations to make high quality furniture and musical instruments.
When you order your timber venetians from Veneta they are made from scratch like all quality bespoke products and we control every step in the process from preparing the timber, fabricating all the components in house to carefully applying the final finish on the slats.
All Veneta corded timber venetian blinds feature the very special proprietary Privacywood slats which creates a clean crisp elegant style, enhances the blinds closure and offers the ultimate in privacy.
Veneta timber venetians are available in 2 ranges; Premium or Essentials. The Essentials range have a decorative headrail and 50mm slats. The Premium range comes with a timber valance, a choice of 50mm or the wider 63mm slat, and have the option of a designer ladder tape. Both models are available in either solid paint or stain colours that are designed to suit any décor.

Sustainable Plantation Timber
The Phoenixwood tree, also known as Paulownia or Kiri tree, is one of the world’s fastest growing tree species. Sawn timber can be harvested in less than 10 years, and after harvesting a new tree can grow from the original stump (coppice growth), using the old and well established root system. This procedure can be repeated several times, saving post-harvest clearing, land erosion and the resultant runoff and river salinity. Our Phoenixwood is sourced from professionally managed, accredited and sustainable forestry’s ensuring the longevity of the natural forestation process in line with international standards.
Timber Stability - Kiln Drying Process
After 40 years in the industry, our factory is proud of its achievements including a world leading Kiln drying process, which incoporates the products destination in the mix as to the drying conditions required for the timber. This industry leading technique ensures the timber is more durable and lasts longer in the harsh Australian climatic conditions. This also allows for the slat thickness to be kept to a minimum to reduce the load of lifting the blind, so you will notice the ease of operation when using our thin and light weight slats. The Veneta 5 year warranty re-enforces our quality guarantee and offers piece of mind when purchasing a Veneta Blind.

Loose blind cords and chains within reach of children can be fatal. By their very nature cords or chains used to operate blinds (and curtains) are very strong and if they become wrapped around a child's neck ''they will not break'' and can result in strangulation.
Veneta understands the importance of selling child safe blind products but it is important for all our customers to recognise the potential danger presented by loose blind cords and how to install...
