Warm Your Home with Wood Window Treatments
There is something relaxing and comforting about the thought of a warm night in on a cold evening. If you imagine the perfect scene, you might picture a fireplace, blankets, and warm tones. In this imaginary room, are there any wooden elements? For a lot of people, the answer is yet. Maybe it’s the wood in the fireplace, hardwood floors, a coffee table or some other piece. This might be because wood tones are associated with warmth. With wood window treatments from Blind Builders, you can add warmth to your home and reap the many benefits of wood in your home.
Parkland® Wood Blinds
Blinds are a classic, familiar window treatment and are very functional. These wood blinds are made from all genuine basswood and can be customized to fit your home. There is an array of specialty finishes, wood stains, and paint colors to choose from, so you can make the blinds your own. They are natural, so they require moderate care and won’t survive well in extreme conditions. If you have any high-humidity areas in your home but want to maintain a wood look, you might want to opt for EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds.
Heritance® Hardwood Shutters
Shutters are a timeless option to create an inspiring, impressive interior design. When they are made with genuine hardwood, you can create a traditional, Southern-style look or dress them up to fit your own preferences by choosing from a multitude of paint finishes and wood stains. Plus, these shutters are built with a dovetail construction, giving them added strength and long-lasting durability. If you have unique windows, they can be custom designed for specialty shapes. Since they are hardwood, you might not want to keep them in those humid rooms. For those spaces, you can consider Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters or NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters.
Provenance® Woven Wood Shades
If you want to introduce natural textures into your home but would like to try a new material, woven wood shades can offer similar benefits as traditional wood window treatments. These shades are made with natural materials such as bamboo, reeds, and grasses. You can pair them with liners and different operational systems as well as select from varying opacities.
While wood window treatments such as blinds and shutters add warmth to your home, they also offer additional benefits. According to the University of British Columbia, using wood in interior design can create positive psychological responses which could reduce stress. Plus, processing wood materials is actually more environmentally friendly than other options. If you use wood throughout your home, you might even see some benefits when it comes to your electric bills. Since wood is a natural insulator, it is possible that wood features in your home can help reduce your energy consumption.
