Wood blinds are traditional window blinds, just as much as wood furniture is traditional. Wood has always been an attractive material to work with, for furniture, trim, and accessories. Wood is solid, wood has a good feel to it, and wood wears well. Wood blinds provide density and insulation, and are excellent for privacy.
Window blinds can be purchased in any number of styles and colors, and finishes. They can be full-length slats, or louvered with a center control adjustment bar. Wood looks classy, and will be found in many professional settings, such as libraries, attorney and medical offices. It is right at home, and dresses up rooms like no other blind can do. Wood is firm but has a soft look and feel to it, warm and friendly, but traditionally dressy at the same time.
These wood blinds like other window blinds and have similar benefits. Use them for total blackout, and privacy when completely shut. Partially open window blinds allow some outdoor light into rooms, and fully open window blinds give the best view out the window, and let the most sunlight into the room. Blinds are used not only on windows, but also on glass doors or door windows for additional privacy.
If you order your wood blinds with the optional routless hanging system, there are no little holes for hanging, and this allows complete shut out of light. Some have motorized systems for raising and lowering wood roller shades. Motorization is helpful as wood blinds tend to be heavier than vinyl or fabric roller shades, and the motorization makes adjustment easier.
Wood blinds can be ordered in painted colors, although for custom blinds traditional looks, natural or darker woods are the choice. Different woods and stains are available, including oak, maple, bamboo, mahogany, natural, chestnut and pecan. You can coordinate your wood blinds with most wood furniture and flooring.
True wood based blinds are a more expensive investment than vinyl window blinds, but they also last longer, spreading the investment over more time. In the long run, they may actually become less expensive because you won’t have to replace them and they are less likely to become damaged through use. Wood window blinds are at home in any room of the house. They look professional in home offices, just as they would outside the home.
