Wooden blinds – it is not recommended to hang these blinds in damp areas like bathrooms, kitchen, etc. Venetian blinds, there is a possibility to see through the blinds which are hanging higher than eye level. This is caused by the angle at which you look at the blind. Wooden blinds do not close 100%. Their main purpose is to control the sun and not for 100% block out.  Prints with larger patterns will be subject to pattern match on the drop & sometimes on the width.

This can be minimised by one front roller and one back roller. Double rollers are a dual fabric system to multiple light control options. Long narrow blinds will need to be guided up if longer than 2.2m long. Due to the composition of the fabric, it may not be possible to have the horizontal fabric bands perfectly aligned when blinds are installed next to each other.
