In interior design, the blinds found on windows and doors are major decorating elements. Blinds made of wood or those with a wooden look add a feeling of warmth and coziness to the atmosphere in the room. They provide privacy without looking stark. They have an inviting look and add beauty to the rest of the furniture in the room. Interior decorators prefer wood blinds for their warmth, versatility, and durability. They can be custom-crafted to suit the décor of any room.
Wood blinds give a natural look to the room with a graceful charm. They look much better than traditional curtains or shutters. They look pretty from both inside and outside the window. In addition, window wood blinds are good insulators from heat or cold. For humid areas like windows in the bathrooms or in the kitchen, faux-wood blinds, which look exactly like wood blinds, can be used.
Wood blinds are crafted from two different types of wood in most cases: Ramin wood and Bass wood. Bass wood is the most preferred since it has more distinctive grain and is stronger. It is also good for staining. Blinds can be constructed with a no-hole option that enables the blinds to make the room really dark. Using a 3-inch valance on these blinds is very decorative. Ramin is the less expensive alternative and generally uses a 2-inch valance at the top of the window to hide the metal head rails.
