Rest easy knowing sustainable practices were used to manufacture your new woven wood shades. Bamboo, grasses, and jute regenerate quickly, and most woven wood shades are recyclable. Wood shades are also great for blocking harmful UVA and UVB rays. The same rays that can damage your skin will also take their toll on your interior furnishings, flooring, and artwork. An added perk is that your rooms will remain cooler as UV rays increase heat in your home.
While attractive and functional, many window treatments are also generic and industrial-looking. Those characteristics give an uninviting vibe when you want your home to be a warm, welcoming place. Bamboo blinds lend a sense of warmth and texture to your space. Window treatments made of natural materials are also one-of-a-kind due to the variations in the natural fibers. You should know before you buy that a woven shade will not look exactly like a sample you have seen.
Let the Sunshine In
Woven wood shades allow in the ideal amount of natural light. Many window coverings block an abundance of light, which is excellent for bedrooms, but not living rooms. Woven shades filter light beautifully, and liners are available for increased light control and privacy. Wood shades are especially at home in kitchens. Not only do they allow in plenty of light, but they are also an attractive and inviting addition to the room.
Just because woven wood shades are earthy and organic doesn’t mean they’re only suited to casual decor. The myriad fibers and textures available allow you to take your woven shades from casual to formal and rustic to refined. Wood shades pair easily with other window coverings. You can maintain the organic theme with linen panels in subdued tones or a bold look with luxe fabrics in vivid hues. The natural fibers of woven wood shades add depth and visual intrigue and help to keep eclectic designs grounded.
