ENERGY EFFICIENCY

While wood blinds aren't known for being particularly energy-efficient, they do have some energy-efficient properties if used correctly. For example, wood blinds can be motorized and set to open and close the blinds' tilt automatically when the sunlight hits your windows. This will decrease the amount of light coming through your windows and increase your shading coefficient, which reduces the amount of energy passing into your home, keeping the room cooler.

PRIVACY AND LIGHT CONTROL

Wood blinds offer some great features, including adjustable slats for light and privacy control. By adjusting the slats you can reflect light upwards or downwards, completely changing the ambiance in the room. A lighter-colored wood blind will reflect more light and a darker slat will absorb more light. Although painted slats are the most popular wood blind variety, many of our clients prefer the natural, organic-looking wood blind or choose a stain to match their décor.

BATHROOM OR KITCHEN? GO, FAUX!

Since genuine wood can warp or crack, the material is not recommended for high humidity environments like a kitchen or bathroom. Faux wood blinds are made out of composite PVC and can give you the best of both worlds! Faux wood blinds have the look of luxurious real wood blinds at a price of about 15% less.

BLINDS FOR FRENCH DOORS

A common problem for French Door blinds is that the handles get in the way of functionality. The solution is to buy shallow blinds for your French doors that fit comfortably between the door and decorative handles. French door blinds should enhance the beauty of your doors, and match the other window treatments in the room. The blinds or shades you choose may depend on the amount of light you want to let in. If you prefer to completely block light, choose a blackout roller or honeycomb shade. If you prefer to allow some light in, choose a light filtering shade. 

Tips for French Door Blinds - You can use many styles of window treatments for French doors, but there are a few things you need to consider. Outside Mount Blinds for doors will be mounted on the outside of the window because unlike regular windows, the French door window has no depth. So, look for window treatments that are available in an outside mount.

TALL WINDOW OR A SLIDING GLASS DOOR? GO VERTICAL!

If you have a tall or extra large window or a sliding glass door in your home, vertical blinds may be just the right fit as this type of blind is often used over substantial openings.

WHAT IS THE BEST BLINDS MATERIAL FOR BRIGHT SUNLIGHT?

Is wood the right material? Not always... aluminum blinds may be the right choice for rooms that receive a lot of sun, as the material can stand long exposure to heat and direct light and will not warp, making them a better choice for a sunny room.

Wood Blind Product Options

SmartPrivacy® Technology

The award-winning SmartPrivacy® Blinds provide tighter closure and concealed route holes for extra privacy and less light penetration.
3 Blind Mice Window Coverings Blinds are stained, painted, and finished to highlight the natural characteristics of the wood.

POPLAR

From the Poplar tree, Poplar wood is more rigid compared to Basswood. Because of the hardness, Poplar holds its shape slightly better than Basswood. Poplar can sometimes come with a streaky greenish grain that does not lend itself to staining as well as Basswood. For this reason, we tend to recommend using Poplar for painted slats and Bass for the stained slats.

BASS

Basswood comes from the alder tree, has a beautiful light-colored, finely tight grain. The characteristic of the grain works well for staining to create an appearance of other types of woods such as oak, pecan, cherry, mahogany, etc. Basswood is also lightweight and easy to mill, making it a preferred choice from a manufacturing standpoint.
