Mini-blinds are a type of Venetian blind.

Venetian blinds are window coverings that use slats of any opaque material—the most common being wood, plastic, and metal. The slats are arranged horizontally, one above the other and connected with cord or tape. The vertical slats can be rotated at an angle up to 90 degrees in either upwards or downwards direction in order to angle the light. When the slats are angled either up or down at 90 degrees, light and vision are completely cut-off, thus the name “blind.” The slats may be compressed, by use of the cord that connects them, to reveal or cover a window completely.

Venetian blinds originally had slats that were more than one-inch in width—usually two or three inches. Mini blinds are one inch or less in width.
