Ladder tape or ladder cord

When finishing a horizontal blind, you can choose a ladder cord (standard) or a ladder tape. The pictures in this article clearly show the difference. 

A ladder tape accentuates the places where the cords run through the blind, and provides a striking finish to the whole. It is usually chosen in a colour that matches the slats. Daring people, however, choose a contrasting colour. This can be combined with an accent colour that is present in the interior, for example a white venetian blind with a black ladder tape. 

A ladder cord is a standard finish for horizontal blinds. It is the cord that is required for your blind to work perfectly. These are always in a colour that fully matches the slat colour you have chosen. Feeling inspired? Then assemble your venetian blind yourself in our webshop.
