Wood blinds offer a warm, natural look to their surroundings. Wood is a natural insulator, providing excellent energy efficiency. Wood blinds are most commonly offered in 1, 2, 2 ½, and 3” slat sizes, and come in a variety of paints, stains and finishes. The wider slat sizes offer a more traditional, shutter type appearance. Decorative woven cloth tapes can be added to coordinate with the surrounding décor and provide a distinctive look (only available on the 1 and 2” woods). Classified as a horizontal blind the slats open and close to allow you to direct the light and control privacy. Wood Blinds can come in a variety of different stain colors to match your wood work. Custom stain colors are available as well. Wood blinds come with the option of wood wand tilts or cord tilts. They also have different valance or cornice upgrades available. Another popular option is the upgrade of cloth tapes to hide the lift cords of the blind and to coordinate with other fabrics in the room. Prices can vary by brand, size, fabric and lift options chosen.
