What You Need To Know Before Buying Wood Blinds

Wood blinds are a popular type of window treatment that can come in different shapes and designs. The use of wooden shutters has been done for centuries, dating back to the original design for them – which is what makes it so special! Wood provides great aesthetic value with its natural beauty while also being very functional at blocking out light or noise from outside sources when necessary.


Though expensive initially, these items have proven themselves durable enough over time without losing popularity among home decorators who love beautiful things but need something practical too. It’s not easy finding the right blinds for your home, especially if you’re not familiar with all their intricacies.

A complete rundown on the traditional versus woven blinds. Wooden shades are more popular than those made of textiles, and this is due to their affordability as well as functionality; however, there’s more aesthetic value in using a weaved material like cotton or polyester which can be finished differently depending upon your desired look for it (ie: light tone).

The most popular type of blinds are traditional wood, but if you’re looking to spruce up your home with some new window coverings then choose woven shades. These fabrics can be given an elegant light tone that adds a natural look to the door while still providing protection against harsh sunlight and filtering out 100% UV rays!

You will have a virtually endless range of materials and finishes to work with, ensuring that your custom blind design is truly unique.


Wood blinds can be categorized into two types, traditional and woven. Traditional wooden slats are threaded together by wires while the newer style is made of thin strips like bamboo which has been woven together to create an even sheet for greater durability.

One of the downsides to wooden blinds is that they are not as durable or stable in high humidity areas. This can lead to warping and discoloration over time, so it’s important for homeowners who live with higher than average amounts of moisture content around them (like near pools)to avoid placing their window coverings here where they would be at risk most often due to damage caused by wood swelling/swelling up under increased weight during summertime rains among other things/


Wood blinds are easy to clean but may require lots of attention for maintenance. Wooden blinds should not be cleaned with water as it can cause further damage and is a risk that has been known to happen before in some cases where people do this type of cleaning too often or use an abrasive cleaner on their windows which will scratch any surface you’re trying to protect from dirt! Instead, I recommend using your vacuum cleaner – just make sure not touch the outside surfaces because dust gets stuck there first anyways so pick up all around those areas without touching them directly (sometimes called “particle control”)–and then wash off any particles left over after rinsing thoroughly by spraying down another time with regular old-fashioned household bleach mixed together at very small
