Are you looking for a natural and timeless shade for your windows and doors? Then wooden blinds should be at the top of your list. Wooden blinds come in a variety of styles and finishes, making them a popular choice for many homeowners. In this guide to wooden blinds, we’ll explain why wooden blinds are a great choice for your home, the immediate benefits and how to choose the right style and finish for your needs.

Why choose wooden blinds?

Wooden blinds are a great choice for many reasons. They offer a natural look that can complement any decor and are durable and easy to care for. Wooden blinds also have a great insulating effect, helping to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter.

What are the benefits of wooden blinds?

Wooden blinds provide a timeless look that can complement any decor. Depending on your style, you can choose a natural wood look with a grained finish or a sleek, smooth painted slat for a more modern, clean look. If you want to keep up with current trends, a white wooden blind is the way to go. A white wooden blind adds a freshness to your interior and matches with any decor for a classic finish that will never look old-fashioned.

Wooden blinds are durable and easy to maintain. They can withstand high heat and temperature changes without warping or cracking. With proper care, they can last for many years. We recommend that you avoid getting the slats too wet or damp, as this can promote warping.

Wood is a natural insulator, making wooden blinds an excellent choice for thermal retention in your home and workplace. They help keep your home cool in the summer by blocking the sun’s heat and they also trap heat in your home in the winter, making them a great choice all year round.

Privacy and light control
Many homeowners choose wooden blinds for their privacy and light control benefits. Wooden blinds can be tilted to adjust the light level in your home, making them a great choice for adjusting the light in any room. They’re also perfect for blocking the sun’s glare and providing privacy when needed. With real wood Venetians, you can get the perfect level of light in any room without compromising your privacy.

Sound dampening
Another great benefit of wooden blinds is that they are soundproofing. If you live in a noisy area, wooden blinds will muffle outside noise and give you more peace and quiet.

Great value for money
Wooden blinds offer great value for money. They are an affordable solution that offers many benefits and can last for many years with proper care. Many people choose wooden blinds as a cheaper alternative to shutters as they can offer the same benefits and style at a fraction of the cost.

Style, size and installation of your wooden blinds

Now that you know all the benefits wood blinds have to offer, it’s time to choose the right style and finish for your needs. We’ve listed the most important things to consider when choosing your blinds. There are many different styles of wooden blinds, so it’s important to consider what suits your home best.

Style and finish
If you want a natural wood look, we recommend choosing a wooden blind with a grainy finish. This style offers a rustic look that will complement any traditional decor. For a more modern look, go for a painted wood slat in a sleek, smooth finish. A white wooden curtain is always a popular choice as it suits any interior and is on trend at the moment.

Real wood blinds are not recommended for damp areas such as bathrooms or kitchens. If you like the look of real wood blinds, we recommend choosing a faux wood for these rooms, which is more resistant to moisture.

To find the perfect style and finish for your needs, consider the overall layout of your home and the type of look you’re going for.

Slat size
It’s important to think about the size of the slat you want too. We offer 15mm, 35mm and 50mm slats on our wooden blinds. If you have a larger window, choose 35mm or 50mm slats. A larger slat size means fewer muntins are generally needed, keeping your window slim. For regular and smaller windows, choose 15mm and 35mm slats, which tend to look more flattering on smaller windows and doors. The size of the slat you choose is entirely dependent on personal preference.

Measurement and installation
You should also consider where you mount your blinds. How you measure is entirely dependent on the type of curtain you want to order. We offer both standard wooden Venetians as well as perfect fit wooden Venetians. For more details on how to measure for your chosen blinds, please follow our measurement guide to make sure you get the perfect fit every time.

Installing wooden blinds is a relatively easy process, but may require a few tools depending on the type of blinds you have chosen.

How to maintain your wooden blinds

Like other sun protection, wooden blinds need a little care and maintenance to retain their finish and durability. It’s super important that you know how to properly clean your wooden blinds. That’s why we’ve listed our top tips for keeping your blinds looking like new for longer.

– Avoid excessive moisture and humidity. We recommend using a duster or feather duster to clean your blinds, as this will prevent them from getting too wet. If they do get damp, make sure to dry them off immediately to avoid warping.

– Use a real wood blind cleaner. You can buy wood cleaner at most home improvement stores or online. We recommend using a cleaner specifically designed for wooden blinds, as this will be gentle enough not to damage the wood.

– Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive materials. This includes things like furniture polish, vinegar or lemon juice. These can damage the wooden slats, leaving them looking dull and lifeless.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your blinds looking like new for years to come.
