A valance is standard on all our wood blinds and faux wood blinds to cover the metal head rail, and mechanism operators such as the cordlock strings and tilt wands.
Best for privacy, the horizontal blinds allow you to tilt the slates downwards at an angle, allowing you to see through, while others cannot look in. Ideal for bedrooms and street-facing windows, or any other window with privacy issues.
To minimize cords, we recommend upgrading to a cordless lifting system combined with a tilting wand, or a retractable wand system for maximum child safety, and to spare you from tangled cords.
For better light blockage, we recommend larger size slates, especially on larger windows; less slates means there are less possible seams on a given window that light can seep in through.
The most common slate size is the 2”, with the widest array of colors, stains and finishes available. Wood blinds are also available at 1” and 2-½”.
Wood blinds are available in a large assortment of colors, stains and finishes that complement the natural wood grain, a very appealing attribute that adds warmth and prestige.
Wood blinds are excellent for windows where privacy is worry. When fully lowered, you can choose to keep the slates tilted completely closed for privacy and light blockage, and with a cord or a wand control, you can set the angle of the slates in a way so you can see outside while people from the outside cannot see in.
Wood blinds are effective not only during the day, but at night as well, when lights inside the house make it easy for people outside to see straight in. Wood blinds can control the degree of privacy and prevent the outside world from peeking into your home.
Sturdy, reliable and affordable, wood blinds are one of the most popular window treatment applications in the market.
