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.
Wood blinds come with a matching top valance that covers the head rail and attachment mechanism. This can vary slightly in width; narrower is more traditional and unobtrusive. Slats are usually two inches deep, but some are one-inch narrow slats. Louvered slats can vary in depth from one inch to 4-1/2 inch. Smaller blinds may have the narrower slats for looks. Plantation blinds usually feature deeper slats. The height of slats is thin, about 3/4 inch thick, but some larger ones can be thicker. Wood Window Blinds
These wonders work 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 the most 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.
As an easy to clean product,they are good for use with children because of their durability. It is not as easy to damage wood blinds. They are nice for use in the children’s bedrooms also. The louvered styles have a traditional look but help with nap times and bedtime because of their ability to darken the room. Wood window blinds fit easily with traditional wood furnishings, especially in the bedroom.
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.
Faux wood blinds are useful and are good performers in situations of high humidity, and high moisture. They will not crack, split or warp and are less expensive than real wood blinds. Wood and faux wood blinds are both good insulators, and help cut costs for heat and electric with their adjustability. They are more versatile than just curtains.
