Cost of Wooden Venetian Blinds UK
Venetian blinds are an excellent addition to any home, adding a sense of style that can’t be replicated. They’re one of the most popular types of blinds out there, but how much will it cost to install them in your home? The answer to this is more complex than it seems as there are different factors that play into the price – such as the type of Venetian blinds and the size of your windows.
Don’t worry, all the prices will be made easier to understand as you read through this buyer’s guide:
How Much do Wood Venetian Blinds Cost?
Primarily, the cost of wood Venetian blinds is going to depend on the size of your windows – along with the size of the slats. Most Venetian blinds come in slat widths of either 35mm or 50mm. Additionally, the type of wood used will have a big impact on the price. At Wood Blinds, we have two different options to choose from:
- Faux wood
- Sun wood
The faux wood blinds start from £25.81 and are available in a series of different designs and colours to suit your home.
The sun wood blinds are slightly more expensive given they have a more premium look and feel to them. They begin at £30.03 and also have plenty of different colours for you to choose from.
Of course, these are the base prices for the blinds – the true cost of them will vary based on how big your windows are. Typically, most UK windows can be found in the following sizes:
- 500 x 1200
- 1000 x 1200
- 1500 x 1200
- 2000 x 1200
- 2500 x 1200
By taking our faux wood blinds, we can provide you with average prices for each of these window sizes:
- 500 x 1200: £27.87
- 1000 x 1200: £45.65
- 1500 x 1200: £63.60
- 2000 x 1200: £89.27
- 2500 x 1200: £112.12
Please note, the prices stay the same regardless of slat width, so you can choose your faux wood blinds in either 35mm or 50mm and pay the same.
With our sun wood collection, the prices are as follows:
- 500 x 1200: £33.21
- 1000 x 1200: £58.13
- 1500 x 1200: £83.02
- 2000 x 1200: £130.80
- 2500 x 1200: £139.52
All of our sun wood collection are only available in 50mm slat width, so keep that in mind when ordering.
Furthermore, please be aware that this is for the cost of the blinds only, not for installation. If you want the blinds to be installed for you, you will need to hire a company to do that. There’s also a £7.95 delivery fee to add to your order.
Things to Consider When Purchasing Wood Blinds
What do you need to know before buying your wood Venetian blinds? Apart from the average costs, these are some other things to consider:
Here, you need to consider the size in terms of the slat width and how big the blinds need to be to fit your windows. We’ve provided some estimates for the average window sizes in the UK, but your best bet is to measure your windows themselves. Ensure you have an accurate reading, then input the details into the size boxes when ordering your blinds. Be sure to select the correct measurements – if you measured in mm, don’t accidentally put the numbers under cm, or you’ll get some massive blinds that are very expensive.
Tapes are an optional addition to add to your Venetian blinds. All of the prices listed above do not include tape. You can select a specific colour of tape to apply to your blinds, and they run vertically over the internal strings. This is a great way to cover up the strings and make the blinds look neater, and they can also add a nice contrast when displayed next to the wood.
Faux Wood Blinds Colours
Of course, you need to think long and hard about the colour of your faux wood Venetian blinds. The choice is entirely up to you, and it depends on your interior design. Pick blind colours that complement your interior spaces and add something special to the home decor. Also, consider staining; white blinds look nice but are more susceptible to stains and can be harder to keep clean. Also Check: How to Choose your Wood Blind Colour
Where are you going to place your blinds? Ultimately, this plays a role in determining both the size and the colour of your Venetian blinds.
Lastly, always be sure that you purchase Venetian blinds from a quality supplier. The wood or faux wood needs to be of very high quality to ensure that it lasts without deteriorating. You can find extremely cheap Venetian blinds out there, but the quality is so low that it doesn’t make sense to even consider them.
How to fit Venetian Blinds
Thankfully, fitting Venetian blinds is relatively simple and requires almost zero DIY experience to do. Once you have measured your windows and bought the correct blinds for them, they will arrive packaged and ready to fit.
From here, follow these simple steps:
- Place the blinds against the window and mark where you are going to mount the brackets
- Drill holes into your markings and insert the wall plugs that came with your blinds
- Place the bracket over the holes and use a screwdriver to screw the blinds into the wall plugs
- The bracket will have little levers that you can move, and ensure they are in their open position while fitting the top rail of the blind to the brackets
- Turn the leavers into the closed position to snap them in place and keep the rail attached
- Attach the wand that comes with it so you can alter the openness of the blinds
- Drill two holes in the wall to position the safety cleat, then screw it into place, wrapping the cord around it
- Just like that, you’ve got a new set of Venetian blinds installed in your home!
