Wooden Venetian Window Blinds

Overview

Our Marupa wood venetian window blinds/ venetian shades raise the bar on venetian blind lightness, longevity, and value for money. They are reliable, highly functional, and decorative window treatments - fully adjustable to get the desired light ambience in a room.

Great value for money - higher quality at lower cost

Marupa wood venetians have even greater attributes than our other wood venetians, yet at a significantly lower cost.

Very light - twice the width for the same weight

These venetian window blinds are half the weight of fauxwood blinds – so they are manageable to install and operate in greater sizes.

Better blind closure and light stopping

The new stylish H-shaped bottom rail is designed specially to improve snugness of blind closure, narrowing any gaps that light may get through.

Natural rich timber toning or stylish painted colours

Natural timber grain offers a timeless rich warmth to complement any room. Our venetian shades also have 5 fashionable painted designer colours to match any décor – including traditional, colonial or contemporary.

Sound hardwood from environmentally-friendly sources

Marupa wood comes from sustainable South American plantations, unlike other timbers that are getting scarcer in quantity and quality. It’s also more stable and doesn’t warp as much as other woods and fauxwood.

Unique 90mm flat fascia design

Fitting in with contemporary home décor, our venetian blind design completely covers the high profile head rail, giving a better finished appearance.

Set light and temperature for optimum comfort

By tilting of the slats, you can create the exact light ambience you want. In winter, the great insulation properties of wood mean heat is conserved when slats are closed. In summer, they can be opened to let the cool breeze through.

Setting these wood venetian blinds to full-tilt blocks the light and creates total privacy at night. By pulling them right up, an unrestricted view is possible.

Easy to operate

Our venetian window blinds are smooth and easy to draw up and down. There is one cord to open and close slats, plus cords to raise and lower the blind – with steel self-locking to hold their position. Cords can be optionally on the left or right.

Extra heavy UV coating to look great for longer

Our Marupa venetian shades have the best best UV protectorant in the market to guard against colour fade and water damage, even with harsh NZ light.
