The benefits do not stop with their good looks, however. Wood blinds are excellent insulators against heat and cold because of their solid wood construction. For the same reason, they provide your home with unrivaled privacy and are excellent protection for your furniture from the harmful rays of the sun. Finally, they are also incredibly lightweight, dramatically reducing the amount of daily wear and tear and extending the life of your blinds.
There are many things to consider when choosing the right style of blinds for you and your home, starting with slat size. 1 and 2 inch slats are the most common, though larger slatted models provide more of a shutter effect and let in optimal light. 1 inch slats are best for French doors and small windows, while 2 inch slats look great just about anywhere. Other options to consider are vertical slats, woven wood models (think bamboo shades), and models made of faux wood rather than real wood.
Excess moisture is wood worst enemy, so avoid getting wooden blinds wet. To dust them, use a clean, soft cloth, a feather duster or a vacuum brush. To put more life into the wood, use a cleaner made specifically for wood, such as lemon oil. Reading the manufacturer guidelines is more important than ever with wooden blinds, so check to see what products the company recommends before you use anything on them. Run a dryer sheet along each slat to keep dust and grime from sticking.
