5 Reasons To Buy Real Wood Blinds

Better aesthetics

We all know that real wooden blinds are some of the best looking window dressings. The natural beauty of the woodgrain brings an unmatched style and warmth to the room. They also have the distinct ability to tie in with a range of interior décor themes and colours, whether it’s a minimal and modern space or a traditionally decorated room. This beauty and versatility makes real wood blinds a worthwhile investment for any space, particularly for homeowners that are a little more style conscious.

Unrivalled privacy

Wooden blinds are especially handy for those requiring total privacy, especially if you live in a busy urban area or your room is overlooked. Other types of blind can minimise views from outside, however wood blinds totally eradicate your worries of nosy neighbours or passing pedestrians. Wood is characteristically solid and sturdy, so it also prevents subtle outlines and shadows being displayed, which can also impede on your feelings of privacy.

Excellent functionality

Wooden blinds boast a range of specific features that make them superior compared to other window treatments. Not only are they easy to use, but they offer exceptional light control, blocking out all sunlight and UV rays when fully closed. Wood blinds are also great insulators, keeping in the warmth when its cold outside, but allowing fresh air flow when it gets too hot. This means they have a seriously positive impact on heating bills, too.

Easy to clean

It’s much easier to clean wood than it is a soft fabric blind or curtain. The substantial wooden slats can be easily blitzed with a cloth or duster without removing the whole blind from the window. Consider a microfibre cloth or ostrich feather duster, which grab and retain dust more effectively. A good coat of paint or varnish will also help protect your blinds again spills and stains. Remember, if you use water to clean your wood blinds, dry them thoroughly afterwards to avoid bending.

Highly durable

Of course, wooden blinds are also very durable, so you needn’t worry too much about damage. Though lightweight, wood blinds are extremely hardwearing and are sure to outlast other window dressings. Wood is inherently strong, so you can trust your window treatment is a super sturdy solution. The only thing to remember that wood can warp over time, especially if it is exposed to a moist environment.
