Real Wood Blinds

The Warmth and Richness of Natural Wood Paints, Stains, and Finishes...

What Makes REAL WOOD BLINDS great

Real wood blinds bring the warmth and richness of natural wood into your home.

Wood blinds can add an architectural element to your home and can look like a piece of furniture or cabinetry. Real wood blinds come in a wide array of brilliant paints, stains, and exclusive finishes to match wood trim, fixtures,
or furnishings.

Wood blinds have a great amount of light control because the slats can rotate to allow for as much or little light into the room. They can also provide a view-through without having to be fully raised, although they can raise all the way up to allow for a full, wide open view of the window. When raised, they do stack up at the top of the window, so the taller the window the larger the stack at the top.

Real wood blinds tend to be heavier than other window treatments so be careful of the larger windows they can be difficult to raise and lower. If you like to raise and lower your blinds everyday, real wood blinds may not be the best choice for you since the stress on the inner cords could cause them to break prematurely. Real wood blinds are a great choice for those who prefer to tilt rather than raise or lower.

Real wood blinds tend to gather dust more frequently because of the horizontal design, so require cleaning more often. However, they are easy to clean with a feather duster, or vacuum, or if something were to spill on them, they can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Most top manufacturers will treat the
blinds with dust inhibitors as well as for moisture and sun damage, but don’t forget this is a natural wood product so they are not the best choice in areas with a lot of sun, heat and moisture.

The most common size is a 2” slat but they are also available in smaller or larger slat sizes ranging from 1 3/8” to 2 ½”. Real wood blinds are available in cordless, cordless lift and lock, and motorized controls.

For visual appeal, all real wood blinds should come with a matching valance option to cover the metal headrail. For a traditional look, decorative cord tapes can be used to cover the vertical cords or “ladders” used to string the blind together. Some manufacturers offer a Routless, LightsOut or de-Light feature which eliminates cord holes and reduces light leakage, blocking 50% more light than a traditional wood blind construction.
