Wood Vertical Blinds
Though the most popular verticals for homes and offices are fabric and vinyl
blinds, there are many people who like wooden verticals. They choose them for
their attractive warm look and for the many other advantages that real wood
Wooden blinds combine many vertical blinds’
rewards in addition to the quality of natural wood. They provide
complete light control and sound absorption, have excellent
insulation, and, like other verticals, don’t collect much dust. So
you can clean them easily with a soft cloth and treat them
occasionally with oil soap, like other wood items in your home.
Wooden blinds are lightweight and at the same time are very durable. Because of
their light weight, they can be a good choice for large windows, but unlike
fabric or vinyl verticals, wood blinds don’t give you a feeling of drapery. I
think they look best on wide, not very high windows, or as dividers between
large interior spaces. In this case they look like quality made wooden doors.
Wood vertical blinds can be very noisy in windy weather; they tend to warp and
scratch easily and aren’t soil resistant. These things make them impractical
for high humidity areas, like bathrooms and kitchens and for homes with small
kids and pets. If you like the feeling of natural wood in your bathroom or
kitchen interior, consider faux wood
vertical blinds, which are much more useful in these rooms.
Wooden blinds are made of different types of wood. Learn more about them
here. Their colors may vary from white and light wooden shades to
cherry and mahogany. You can even find black wood blinds if you want. As for
me, the beauty of wooden blinds is their natural wood shades and textures. When
they are colored, they somehow lose this beauty. But that’s only my opinion,
and if white or black wood fits your interior best, don’t hesitate to shop for
them. That’s not so easy, because there aren’t many manufacturers that produce
wood verticals. But if you shop around, you can find some really eye-catching
and quality wooden verticals.
Measure for your blinds properly, or find a professional who can do this work
for you. Be careful: a mistake in the measuring can cost you a lot of money!
