Buyer's Guide: Wooden Blinds

Blinds are designed to keep the sun out of our rooms which helps to keep our furniture from fading. They can also keep the sun from blinding us while we are reading or watching television and darken the room for ambience or if we aren’t feeling too good. However, blinds can also give rooms a sophisticated look, especially if we choose wood blinds.

Reasons Why Wood Blinds Look So Good

Wooden blinds makes our windows look more put together than the plain vinyl or vertical blinds that are found in most people’s homes. They give our windows a more sophisticated and classy look. They also come in many shades. This means that it is easy to find one that matches either the furniture in the room or the room’s mouldings and trim.
They are also easy to clean. One can just take a micro-cloth or damp cloth and easily remove any dust that might fall on them. They can also be polished periodically to keep their shine intact.
Finally, they are light in weight, just like plastic and vinyl blinds. This means that they won’t be added extra pressure to your window stills while remaining easy to install.

Wood Blinds Will Actually Block Out The Light

Many people state that the vinyl and plastic blinds do not block out the light, as well as they like. Part of this reason is that they cannot find these in dark enough shades. This is not a problem when one is purchasing wooden blinds as they come in a variety of shades from light to dark.

Woods Blinds Are Worth Their Money

Yes, these types of blinds do cost a bit more than vinyl and plastic blinds however, they do last much longer. They do not have the same chemicals in them as plastic blinds therefore, they do not have to replace as often.
