Blinds are one of the most common window treatments in homes and offices. They are low maintenance and look great in any room. They can easily blend in with the décor, or you can choose ones that stand out to be a focal point. There are different materials to choose from, but there are many advantages to wooden window blinds over other types.
Advantages of wooden window blinds
Wooden window blinds add elegance and richness to any room, and the grain and knots of the hardwood add a beautiful richness and depth to any room. They would look great in all rooms, from a home office to a bedroom, and they’re very sturdy and will last for many years. The variety of colors and hardwood materials gives you many options, so they will match any décor you have.
Wood also isn’t a good heat conductor, so wooden window blinds won’t heat up your house sitting in a window that gets a lot of sun. Since sunlight cannot get through wood, blinds are a good window treatment for allowing sunlight in when you want it and completely blocking it when you want a dark room. They are great for bedrooms when you want to block the sunlight early in the morning and for living rooms and offices for blocking the sunlight when it’s strongest during the day.
You can also get faux-wood blinds, but hardwood has some advantages over them. You can’t replicate the richness of the hardwood with faux-wood, so hardwood has a more elegant look. Faux-wood is also a lot heavier than hardwood and it’s not as flexible. Because they’re so heavy, faux-wood blinds are not the best option if you have very large windows, but you can easily use hardwood blinds with large windows. You do need to be aware that wooden window blinds warp with moisture, so they’re not well suited for bathrooms or near a kitchen sink.
