Natural Real Wood Blinds
Upgrade the look of your home with 100% natural, custom wood blinds direct from The Wood Blinds and Shutter Factory. Natural wood grain really stands out and gives your home a warm feeling, especially with a stained finish. Our North American Basswood venetian-style blinds are available in 1", 2" and 2-1/2" slat sizes.
Basswood is a popular choice among the environmentally conscious because it is a renewable resource that is available in greater supply compared to other types of wood that are sometimes harvested from endangered trees throughout the world. And, unlike faux blinds, our real wood blinds are not made from material containing chemicals such as PVC.
Natural Basswood Selection
A great choice for windows that have narrow sills -- these wooden blinds only require a 1-1/2" surface for flush mounting and can be safely installed in as little as 3/4" mounting space.
The 2" slat is considered the "standard" size and will give a traditional look to your home. A unique feature of our 2" real wood blinds is an optional, decorative cloth tape that can cover the string ladders.
These blinds have a 25% larger slat size than a standard 2" blind. This means that when you open your blinds you will have a less obstructed view out of your window compared to other blinds.
Special Features - Standard or Routeless Build
An added benefit of the 2" and 2-1/2" blinds is that they are available in both a "standard" build with holes in the slats for the control lines and a "routeless" build with no holes in the slats which allows them to close more tightly. If you are particularly concerned about privacy, or shutting out as much light as possible, then routeless construction is the way to go.
Advantages Natural Wood
You'll find that natural wood is lighter in weight than faux wood, which makes for easier operation. It also means less wear and tear on the control mechanisms, leading to a longer lifespan for your blinds. In addition, real wood is more sturdy than faux which results in fewer string ladders which means a cleaner, clutter free look.
Another wonderful quality of a natural material such as Basswood is its effectiveness as a barrier against both heat and noise. When closed, the slats block the sun's rays, reducing the amount of heat entering your home. They also reflect noise and annoying sounds back outside (where they belong)!
We also include an elegantly styled valance free of charge with every blind! It is color matched to your selection and hides the headrail from view. For outside mount installations, the valance includes returns to hide the ends of the headrail as well!
Moisture: these blinds are best suited for low moisture areas like dens, living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms. We advise customers to avoid hanging them in high moisture areas such as bathrooms and laundry rooms because natural wood has a tendency to absorb moisture.
Safety: the cords on this product conform to industry standards for child safety. The control cords are a split, loop-less design to reduce the possibilty of choking hazard for children.
Many of the blind companies you see online sell blinds in stock sizes that have to be "cut down" to fit your windows. Our products are built to your exact measurements and come out of the box ready to install. Just hang and enjoy!
