Would welcome your help on this. I have a small two bedroom duplex which has happily been rented by the same family with two young children for the last five years.
Unfortunately the kids are a little hard on the place and the venetians are in a state! I need to replace 4 windows and wanted your opinion on the best hard wearing, value for money, window coverings.

I would recommend plantation shutters – they are fixed to the window frame so they can't be pulled and there are not cords either, the only problem is they are on the expensive side, but probably worth it so you don't have to change them again for a while.

Venetian blinds are notoriously high maintenance, especially in high traffic areas.
I'm a big fan of roller blinds as they look great (Venetians are only nice when they're new) and every property we have installed them in hasn't needed ongoing repairs like the Venetians did.
