Wood Blind Material
Types of Wood
Wood Blinds are featured in premium solid oak, southern knotty pine, American Basswood and hardwood.
Wood Blinds are available in stained, rustic stained, distressed, knotty pine, oak and painted finishes.
Available in 2” and 2 ½” slat sizes there is sure to be one right for the Wood Blind look you had in mind.
Wood Blind Operation
Wood Blinds can be raised/lowered using lift cords and the slats may be opened or closed using a cord or wand control.
By eliminating the lift cords which raise and lower these Wood Blinds, they are a safer option for children and pets. There is a separate lifting mechanism used to lift the blind open for occasional use such as cleaning the window. The Wood Blind slats can be opened or closed using the matching wand control.
Two Wood Blinds are connected by one continuous headrail. This is a great feature for windows with multiple openings because the right and left blinds operate independently. 2-on-1 headrail is available regardless of how you select to operate your Wood Blind.
Wood Blinds are available to cover several diverse shaped windows:
- Perfect Arch
- Perfect Half Arch
- Imperfect Arch
- Imperfect Half Arch
- Eyebrow Arch
- Bread Box
Wood Blind Upgrades
Available on Wood Blinds, Light-less® slats close tightly and are made without route holes and prevent unwanted light from seeping into the room, ensures maximum privacy and offers a more uniform, sleek appearance.
Wood Blinds can be embellished with decorative tapes available in dozens of unique colors and patterns. The tapes cover the route holes on the slats to enhance light control and privacy as well as add a stylish personal touch.
Traditional Valance with Fabric Insert
The carved wood Traditional Valance can be ordered with a fabric insert that matches the decorative tapes on blind or stands alone as an eye-catching accent.
Classic III Valance
For a more traditional look, upgrade your Wood Blind with a Classic III Valance.
The profile of a cornice is like that of a large decorative valance with returns. The Cathedral Cornice comes in a 4 ½” or 5 ½” profile and can be used to make a bold statement to top off your window.
Keystones are decorative embellishments which add beauty and strength to our Traditional Valance and Cathedral Cornice.
Used to project the Wood Blind up to 3” from the mounting surface, Extension Brackets are ideal if your blind must clear an obstruction such as window molding, a sliding glass door handle or window crank.
Wood Blind No Charge Options
Wood Blinds can be mounted to the inside of the window frame at the top or sides, this is called an Inside Mount. Most people prefer an Inside Mount because it provides a customized, tailored look and leave decorative molding and window sills exposed.
Outside Mount is when a Wood Blind is mounted to the wall or molding surrounding the window. Outside Mount is ideal if there is not enough mounting depth for your Wood Blinds in the window frame. Other reasons to choose an Outside Mount include making a window appear larger, allowing the product to stack above or to the side in order to provide an unobstructed view or maximizing privacy by eliminating light gaps.
Standard or Chateau Valance
A rich wood valance in finishes to coordinate with your Wood Blinds can be ordered to add the perfect finishing touch to your window.
This larger valance makes for a bolder traditional look and is available with or without a fabric insert to match the decorative tapes on your Wood Blind or stands alone as an eye-catching accent.
Valance Return Depth
Valance returns attached to the back sides of your valance, and extend precisely to the wall or window frame to add a finished look to your window.
The controls to open/close, raise/lower your Wood Blind can be placed on the right or left side of the blind.
Split Control is when you have the controls for raising/lowering as well as opening/closing the Wood Blind on opposite sides.
Wand Tilt or Cord Tilt
Wood Blinds can be made with a traditional wand that tilts the slats or a cord tilt which closes the slats tighter on larger blinds.
Spacers are available for use on windows with a projected molding. They are 3/8" thick and allow the blind to be mounted flush with the outside edge of any standard window molding.
Hold Down Brackets
Hold Down Brackets are used to secure the bottom of a Wood Blind when it is mounted to a door or used in a motor home.
Availability of options and upgrades will vary based on the materials and product operation selected.
