They can also be lifted up or let down, or rotated to 180 degrees to open up and let light in.
Venetian blinds also require very little maintenance and does not require any washing!
Since they are made of solid material, you only need to dust them, use a lint roller or wipe them with a wet cloth.

Cleaning Wooden Blinds
As Wooden Venetian Blinds are made of wood, you should keep them away from high moisture areas and avoid using a very wet cloth on them.
For maintenance, you can clean them the same way as Aluminium Venetian Blinds by dusting.
You can also do light cleaning with a damp cleaning cloth but be extra careful to not wet the wood as it will cause the slats to warp.
Also, you should avoid using any chemical on them and simply dust or wipe with soapy water and let them dry immediately.
