Wooden Venetian Blinds: The Sophisticated way to Control Natural Room Lighting and Heat

You may not realise it, but wooden venetian blinds are a sophisticated way to control natural room lighting and heat. Find out how they can be elegant, practical and easy to maintain.

Wooden venetian blinds are arguably one of the most sophisticated way to control natural room lighting and heat, while also enhancing your home. So whether you are buying a new home, or if you just want to spruce up your current house, you can throw away your old blinds and curtains and go for the elegant and classy look of venetian blinds – even if you’re on a budget.

Energy Saving
In fact, wooden venetian blinds can also save you money. One of the best attributes of this type of blind is that they lower the energy costs of heating your home. They both lock in and block out heat so you don’t have to have the furnace up as high; and on hot days in the summer they shelter your room from the blistering heat of direct sunlight.

Sure, you could get this with other blinds, but not as effectively or as elegantly. The usual white fabric, plastic or metal blinds may be economical, but they are also not as aesthetically pleasing. When it comes to sophistication, the style, colour and design possibilities of wood venetian blinds are numerous. As with hardwood floors, wooden blinds complement any texture, and palette in your home’s design. As well, they are stained, painted or waxed then sealed so they are easy on the eye appealing and can reduce the amount of housework you have to do.

Reduces Housework
The sealed top coating allows dust to only settle on the surface. The wood’s surface is sealed so elements of mould and grime can’t grow on it. All you have to do to maintain these wooden blinds is to feather dust for light cleaning.

One Time Expense
The sealing treatment means they will last years and you can enjoy their beauty. You won’t have to replace them because of sun bleaching.

Wood Selection
There are various types of wood used to make wooden venetian blinds, such as:

  • Cedar
  • Cherry
  • Poplar
  • Oak
  • Ramin
  • Abachi
  • Basswood

Control Light
With wooden venetian blinds, you have complete control over the amount of natural light you want in the room. If you want a sanctuary feeling you can allow a slight stream of light; and you don’t have to worry about the sun shining through the wood. On days you want to take advantage of all the natural light you can, and at times when you want to block it out – no problem.

From an aesthetic position, wooden venetian blinds are very customisable. You can choose them according to your colour, size and style specifications so they fit in with your décor. Even with modern living space designs, classic wood blinds complement the look and feel. Wooden blinds can be used to add accents to any room and are practical and ideal for all seasons.
