As mentioned before, the primary reason that wooden blinds have become such popular window treatments is their looks. Their appearance creates a sincere and relaxing feel to any room and they look great from both inside and outside the home. They can be stained almost any color to match your pre-existing trim or furniture or they can be painted to complement your homes general color schemes. And it is all complemented by the comforting look of their strong wood grain and texture. They truly are one of the most beautiful and eye turning products on the market.
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.
Many homeowners choose faux wood blinds/shutters over the real thing for a variety of reasons, though price usually tops the list. Real wood is not cheap, and faux materials can take some of the sting out of the final reckoning. There are some other things to consider when making this choice, however. Real wood is significantly lighter and as a result will last longer.
