Wood blinds are the most popular option in the horizontal blind category. There are a number of unique woods to choose from, including Poplar and Basswood and a few exotic woods.
In general, 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.
Basswood is the preferred wood due to its strength to weight ration. It has a smooth grain, which allows your wood blinds to be stained in a variety of custom colors. Basswood is also a great choice because of its sustainability and eco-friendly nature. It is a renewable resource that comes from rapid growing trees and is farmed locally in the USA.
While wood blinds aren’t known for being particularly energy efficient, if used correctly they do have some energy efficient properties. For example, wood blinds can be motorized and set to open and close the tilt of the blind automatically when the sunlight hits your windows. This will decrease the amount of light coming through your windows and increase your shading coefficient which reduced the amount of energy passed into your home and keeps the room cooler.
Since genuine wood can warp or crack, the material is not recommended for high humidity environments like a kitchen or bathroom. Composite PVC blinds are made out of a composite PVC and can give you the best of both worlds! They have the look of luxurious real wood blinds at a price of about 15% less.
If you have a tall 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.
Reconsidering from wooden to aluminum blinds may be a 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.
We are delighted with our motorized blinds and would highly recommend ‘Three Blind Mice’.

What a great experience working with this professional knowledgeable company. I love the end product and the team fulfilled everything they promised.
Fabulous job 3 Blind Mice, I love my new shutters. Extremely professional, helpful and polite service.
The experience with the company was great from the home visit to pick options for blinds to the installation. They company was very responsive and prompt. The office worked very hard to work with my schedule. All of the representative showed up right on time and were very personable and knowledgeable. I was worried about wrinkles in a set of the Roman blinds that were installed and I receive an almost immediate call back and a very quick scheduling for steaming. Very good experience. I wish all companies provided this great of services.
I think everyone was exceptional. Sherry was very good to work with and very knowledgeable. I liked that I received the quote the day that she came. Chris was great when he came to measure the windows and again when he came to steam the Roman shades. It was great how Ruben kept me informed of the progress. Barbara was great in working around me schedule. Rusty and Brandon were a great team and had all 18 windows done in great time.
I am very happy with the entire process! It was fun to pick out my window coverings, and I didn’t feel pressured at all to make quick decisions or to address areas I wasn’t ready to look at. Installation was smooth and the installers were great guys. I love the way my new windows look….lots of compliments and I really feel like the process was customized just for me!
Great service. Very attentive. Product is amazing and really helps with my energy bills.
EVERYONE was fantastic! Following the original install, I noticed the sliding glass door blinds were not fully closing (the panels didn’t lay against each other and you could see inside/outside the house). When I telephoned and explained the problem I was experiencing, their response was to get back to my house (very quickly I’d like to add), and with a little tweaking they now close as they should. I appreciated their quick and efficient response! From start to finish, it was a pleasure dealing with 3 Blind Mice. Thank you!
We love the Roman shades from Graber. They have the most extensive and unique woven shade selection we have ever seen.
My blinds were completed ahead of schedule, and they worked around my work hours for both consultation and installment. I highly recommend.
Rick, my installer, did an outstanding job on the installation. Fast, courteous, and made sure everything was cleaned up and disposed of before he left!
7 windows with wood shutters…. in & out in an hour! All the shutters fit like like a glove thanks to their precise measurements
They were very professional, from Tammy’s initial visit to the installers and their work. Everything fit perfectly, and we love our new window coverings!
We have used Three Blind Mice on three occasions for three different types of window coverings. We have been delighted with all of the results. Not only are the finished products exactly what we needed the quality and service were excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend them!
Quality Installation, QUALITY Product!! I chose the blinds that have the lining to Stop the light from penetrating the blind. These were in a bedroom with three large south facing windows. When they are closed, 97% of the light is blocked!! The rising sun no longer wakes me up!! I call these types of blinds, Accordion type! Two go up and down for the windows, one large one goes left and right for the sliding glass door!!
Love my new blinds; color is perfect and the installation was flawless.
Quality product! Richard was great, not a pushy salesman and spent the time answering all of our questions. Installer was also helpful. Showed up on time was professional and friendly. We really enjoy our blinds

To keep your wood blinds clean, regularly dust or vacuum them. For deeper cleaning, wipe with a damp cloth. Stained finishes can be treated with lemon oil.
