- Product Details
Barely Black by name and also by design, this Venetian blind takes on a modest form of black and transforms it into a contemporary window dressing that can look chic and sleek in any setting. Get up, close and personal with this blind and golden tones also become prevalent, with these being unlocked by the shimmery effect that is activated with the sun. This can be heightened further with a twist of the operating rod, which allows the Venetian slats to tilt and turn at one's pleasure.
The dark tones can work alongside plain and neutral backdrops to add a sense of contrast or go for bold by pairing the Barely Black Venetian blind alongside vibrant shades of yellow, orange or even green to work it with colour.

- Cleaning Tips
Venetian blinds can be wiped down with a clean, dry cloth to remove dust and debris. Lower the blind and turn the slats downwards until they are flat. Then, starting from the top, gently wipe the slats gently from middle to edge. Sticky or stubborn marks can be cleaned with water and a mild detergent using a non-abrasive brush or sponge.
- Child Safety
Metal Venetian blinds are operated using multiple cords, so we incorporate a number of child safety devices. Metal Venetian blinds are fitted with a breakaway safety tassel. This groups together multiple cords and will breakaway if any reasonable force is placed on it. In addition, inner cord stops are fitted to the operating cords to stop a loop being created should any reasonable weight be placed on the inner cords of the blind. Finally safety cleat(s) will be fitted to an adjacent wall for all Venetian blinds. Cords should be wound around the cleat at all times to keep them tidy and out of reach of children.

Which slat width should I choose?
Metal Venetian blinds come in a choice of four slat widths and the width you choose depends on the size of your window and personal taste. Generally the smaller the window, the smaller the slat. Your in-home advisor can help you decide on the best slat width if you’re not sure.
