5 benefits of wooden blinds

Table of contents

Blinds have the ability to completely change the mood of a room. Wooden bl inds have been a popular choice for decades due to their aesthetic, versatility and practical benefits. This sleek, robust, always stylish design is a favorite for a reason – wood never goes out of style! But what makes a wooden blind so special? How well does it work? Will it complement your space? And how do you know which color and finish to choose?

If you’re considering installing wooden blinds in your home, here are 5 benefits of wooden blinds to help you make your decision.

1. Increased privacy
PVC and fabric blinds can sometimes appear translucent or cast shadows that allow people outside to gain insight into your private life. Here, wooden blinds are completely solid and opaque when closed, so your family and home are completely hidden from prying eyes.

2. Good insulation
Wood is excellent for insulation and wooden blinds are one of the most insulating types of blinds. This means you can keep your home warm in the winter and keep the heat out in the summer, maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home no matter the season. This will lower your energy bills as your need for central heating or fans and air conditioning will be reduced, saving you money in the long run.

3. Long-lasting
Wood blinds are incredibly strong and durable, able to withstand years of use without being damaged or weakened. They are an incredibly long-lasting and cost-effective investment, and will continue to look luxurious and stylish for many years.

4. Low maintenance
The material of fabric blinds allows dirt and grime to penetrate the surface and discolor the blinds, which means that regular deep cleaning will be needed to keep the blinds looking great. With wooden blinds, you don’t have to worry about this. The hard surface forms an effective barrier against dirt, and wooden blinds simply need to be dusted every week or so to keep them looking as good as new.

5. aesthetic and timeless
In addition to their practical qualities, wooden blinds are aesthetic and have a timeless nature. They provide a classic look that embodies a great deal of natural beauty, making them a perfect choice for any home. The blinds are available in both the natural look, so the natural wood grain is visible, or they can be painted and glossed in different shades to match any decor.

How do wooden blinds work?

Wood blinds have a series of horizontal slats connected by a corded roller system. This blind design is also known as Venetian. When fully raised, the slats come together at the top of the window, revealing the full view outside. When lowered and rotated, wooden blinds blocks the outside view and block out all sunlight. Wooden blinds can also be arranged in different positions, depending on the amount of privacy and natural light you need.

Control options: Manual or electric?

Not only are wooden blinds an aesthetic addition to the home, but they also offer flexible control options to suit different needs and preferences. When choosing wooden blinds, you get to choose between two main types of operation: manual or electric.

Manual operation: The manual operating mechanism is the classic method of opening, closing and adjusting wooden blinds. This type of control usually involves a cord or rod that the user can pull or turn to adjust the blinds as needed. Manual operation gives you full control over lighting and privacy and is ideal for those who prefer a more traditional approach to controlling their window coverings.

Electric operation: With the advancement of technology, wood blinds have also kept up with the times by offering electric operation. The electric control mechanism allows you to open, close and adjust the blinds at the touch of a button or even via remote control or smartphone app. This type of control not only adds an extra level of convenience, but it can also be ideal for people with reduced mobility or those who want to automate the control of their shading.

Whether you choose manual or electric operation, wood blinds can be customized to your needs and preferences, adding a timeless elegance to any room in your home.

Which finish should I choose?

When choosing the right finish for your wooden blinds, it’s crucial to think about how it will complement the function, mood and existing décor of the room.

A darker shade of lacquer can create a warm and cozy atmosphere, while a lighter finish can make the room feel lighter and fresher. By considering these factors when choosing finishes, you can complete the look of the room and create the desired atmosphere that perfectly suits your lifestyle and preferences.

What about width, drop and slat size?

The slats are available in 25 mm, 50 mm and 65 mm widths, allowing you to customize them according to your needs and preferences. The price difference between slat sizes is generally not large, making it easier to choose the size that best suits your window and interior design.

When choosing the width of the slats, it’s important to consider the amount of sunlight you want to regulate and the size of the window. The wider the slats are, the more surface area of the window they cover, giving you greater control over light penetration. At the same time, smaller windows can benefit from narrower slats to avoid overloading the room visually and to maintain the proportions of the room’s style.

It’s also worth noting that wide wooden blinds have a smaller stack height, as there will be fewer slats when the blinds are rolled up. This can be a handy factor to consider, especially if you have limited space above the window.

Real wood and faux wood

Our wooden blinds are of the finest quality, sourced from sustainable forests. It’s real wood with a subtle grain and natural style. It’s lightweight yet robust and its versatility means it’s perfect for blinds.

Real wooden blinds are exquisite in their elegance and can be coordinated with all interior design styles, whether your home is modern and minimalist or cozy and traditional.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that faux wood solutions are less efficient. A high-quality PVC faux wood blind is the ultimate solution for wet and damp areas of the home such as bathrooms and kitchens, as faux wood does not absorb moisture and water.
