Wooden Blinds

wooden_blindsWooden blinds consist of horizontal wood slats that can be tilted open or close for light control and privacy. Like fine furniture, wood blinds add a special touch of warmth and rich, natural beauty to any room. Wooden blinds are available in 1-inch, 2-inch, 2 5/8-inch and 3-inch wide slat sizes, in a full range of finishes, from stains and paints to a rougher sandblasted finish. The 1-inch slats create a busy look, limiting your view to the outside. Based upon your specific situation though, you may need a 1-inch slat size. Wooden blinds made with 2-inch wide slats provide a traditional look and are the most popular of the widths available. The 2 5/8-inch and the wider 3-inch slats provide a shutter look and offer a less obstructed view to the outside; because the slats are wider, it takes fewer slats to construct the blind and thus the slats rest farther apart.

What it can do for me?

  • Easily coordinate with the color of wood flooring and fine wood furniture.
  • The 2-inch to 3-inch slat sizes create a look similar to that of a plantation shutter.
  • Blinds made with the 2 5/8-inch and 3-inch slat widths produce a smaller stack of slats at the top of your window when fully raised, than their 2-inch or 1-inch counterparts. This is because the wider the slat, the fewer slats necessary, resulting in a shorter stack of slats when fully raised.
  • Effectively control outside light by tilting the wood slats with a wand or cord while providing necessary privacy. A room can be darkened substantially when the slats are fully closed. Simple to operate. Blinds can be pulled up to allow an open view to the outside. Please note that if you intend to pull your wood blinds up regularly, carefully consider the size of your window and the resulting weight of the blind. The larger a blind’s size the heavier the weight.
  • The heavier the weight, the greater the effort required to raise and lower the blind.
  • To reduce wear and tear on cords, fully open slats before pulling the blind up. This reduces friction and requires less effort.
  • Easy to maintain and very durable.
Client Testimonials
Mary Jane C. "Mr. Marshall was a delight to work with from the initial contact. He responded quickly to a phone message, even before I anticipated, and was available for a consultation on short notice. That was important because the windows in my house had just been replaced and we wanted new "honeycomb" fabric blinds installed as quickly as possible. He was also available for an early evening appointment, which my husband and I greatly appreciated. Although we wanted the blinds quickly, we also wanted good quality blinds, and he had excellent options from which to choose, along with a good range of color selections. We also had the good fortune of being able to take advantage of a special offer that saved us nearly a $1,000.00 on the blinds we preferred. As promised, the blinds arrived in two weeks, even a couple of days earlier, and Mr. Marshall arranged an appointment to install them at our earliest convenience. Again, as promised, he had the blinds (21) installed in about two hours. We will definitely choose to go to him if we decide to install window treatments, and I gladly recommend his services."
S.Trask Vender promptly called and made appointment to come to home to take measurements for shades. Showed up exactly on time and on day promised. Took measurements and told me they would be ordered and should arrive in about 2 weeks. Called just one week after measurements were taken and said shades were ready to hang. Came out next day to hang them. They fit perfectly and look very nice. He cleaned up any mess from installation and disposed of my old shades. Was able to pay for balance with my master card which is a feature I always look for.
B. Whitehouse This was the second time I have worked with Charlie. He is great to work with. He has a lot of experience. He made suggestions and was very patient with me while deciding fabrics/ design. He installed all of the products (blinds, shutters, and drapes) very well. I had a small issue with the shutter; he resolved it quickly and without problem. I would work with Charlie again and I would recommend him!
Mrs. Gibb After I ordered the product, he called as soon as it arrived, a head of schedule. He than arrived at the scheduled time to installed the window coverings. He was very efficient and pleasant while performing the task. I was concerned about some loose threads and he took care of them and assured me that if in the future a problem arose, the company would replace the panels.
Vicki Miller He was very quick to respond to my phone calls and to providing his service. When he hung the finished draperies he went to great lengths to make sure they were hung with absolute precision! He is not only very skilled and professional but also a very nice man!
