Hardwood is durable and lightweight (great for large windows), and less expensive than you might think. For homes with a mix of window types and sizes, wood blinds ‘flow together’ quite well, due to the instantly recognizable natural feel and look of wood, even if different slat sizes are used. Most wooden window blinds are made from North American hardwoods, many using sustainable forestry techniques. When a particular window has conditions that are not suitable for wood (like a humid bathroom), consider faux wood blinds. Add style and sophistication to any room in your home with wood window treatments, available in an assortment of stains to complement your home's decor.
The #1 appeal is, of course, the natural look and feel that makes a room feel warm and comfortable. Functionally, wood blinds and wood venetian blinds offer good light control, better insulation than aluminum blinds, are made of a renewable material and are durable.
The style that a wood blind contributes to your home is driven by several elements: the color of the slats, slat size, valance, routeless slat design, cord versus tape support, and of course, your room! Generally, your primary considerations are color and slat size. The complete set of options varies by brand but is explained below.
Finishes – available in a variety of finishes, from stains and paints to sandblasted and rustic.
Colors – available in a wide variety of both paints and styles.
Slat sizes – Wood blinds with smaller slat sizes (wood mini blinds) are typically for French doors and smaller windows, whereas blinds with 2″ wooden slats are perfect for most windows of any size and shape. Wooden blinds with slat sizes larger than 2″ are recommended for greater outward visibility or view-through.
Valances – the styled top portion that covers the headrail (operating mechanism) as a finishing touch; several options available in matching colors and materials.
Motorized – available with motorization and remote control. Motorized wood window blinds are known as motorized tilt, which open and closes the slats.
Routeless wooden slats - also known as privacy wood window blinds are slats that do not have the notches for the cords; this helps make a room darker when closed instead of having dozens of small light holes.
Cords versus cloth tapes – if you prefer, you can choose optional cloth tapes as an upgrade to standard support cords. Cloth tapes are a stylish finishing touch that allows the addition of an accent color or design..
