You can’t beat the real thing

Wooden Blinds Direct stocks more than just wooden blinds, we also have a fabulous range of aluminium venetian blinds, which look fantastic both in the home and the workplace.

However, our real passion lies with our real wooden blinds. We love everything about them; we love their the naturally pleasing aesthetic, with each slat coming with a unique, natural grain, no two ever quite the same. We love how easy they are to install, maintain and clean. We love how all of our wooden blinds are made from sustainable sources.

For us at Wooden Blinds Direct, quality is paramount to us, each of our blinds are put through a rigorous quality control test before we despatch them from our premises in Grange Moor, West Yorkshire. All of our blinds are made to measure in the UK by our skilled production team.

We have noticed in recent times, however, that despite there being a massive range of gorgeous, affordable blinds available on our site, many customers are opting for faux wooden blinds, instead of the real thing.

Real wood: the only real choice

While faux wood does have its good points – it does strongly resemble real wood blinds, it is easy to clean and maintain just like a real wooden blind, and it is certainly cheaper – this type of blind is, in fact, plastic. The rustic charm of real wood is conspicuous by its absence in a faux wooden blind. Sure, with a faux wood blind, you get your choice of colours – not that you don’t with a real wooden blind, too. Real wood blinds offer you a vast arrange of colours and shades, from light-coloured Pines and Beeches, to dark and sultry Walnuts, and when you purchase the real thing, the colours are completely natural.

Real wood lends an enormous amount of class and sophistication to your home, which faux wood simply can’t beat. Perfect for creating a plethora of atmospheres, from rustic to refined, real wooden blinds exude style, simply as a result of being natural and unspoiled.

All of our blinds come fitted with a separate, real wood valance, as well as a steel headrail made from the very best quality components.

Have we convinced you? It shouldn’t be too difficult to recognise the beauty and elegance of these beautiful products, so why not head over to our website now and take a look at our gorgeous range of real wooden blinds?
