As the year winds down and we’re all spending more time than ever indoors, you’re probably looking around, reevaluating your home and wondering how you can make your space even more comfortable and inviting. Changing up your window treatment can be small yet effective way to refresh a space that has become stale. You want a window treatment that is both visually stunning, promotes an energy efficient home, and adds value. Wooden blinds are a fantastic option for meeting all of these needs. Wood blinds add natural warmth and cast a comforting glow. They create a cozy atmosphere with a rustic vibe that’s familiar and easy to pair with accenting decor. This month on the blog, we at Don’s Drapery Service want to take a closer look at wooden blinds - especially our Hunter Douglas Parkland® and EverWood® collections - and how you can incorporate these styles into your home this new year.
These stunning wood blinds feature 100% authentic hardwood slats treated with advanced finishing techniques that ensure your blinds last a long time and maintain their beauty. Parkland® wood blinds block up to 50% more incoming light compared to typical blinds thanks to the innovative de-Light™ construction that eliminates light holes. Even cords are a thing of the past with the LiteRise® operating system that allows you to adjust your blinds by gently pushing or pulling them into place where you can expect all-day hold. Choose from an array of colors, including gorgeous stains that bring out character of the wood, and lustrous paints that complement any interior design style. You can’t go wrong with colors like Golden Oak, Prairie, and Cosmopolitan.
Adding natural wood blinds provides a solid, neutral base for the rest of your room’s decor — whether you’re decorating a bedroom or a living room. Alone, Parkland® provides subtle yet eye-catching visual interest, but you can take your decor to the next level with Design Studio™ drapery and side panels. This exclusive collection features prints from NY designer Rebecca Atwood, who takes inspiration from refreshing locations like Cape Cod.
Want to enjoy the cozy appeal of hardwood blinds but durability and easy upkeep is your priority? Then we recommend the EverWood® collection. EverWood® boasts some of the most realistic textures on the market with TruGrain® texturizing processes. And, with a gorgeous collection of realistic stains to pick from, you won’t have to sacrifice on looks to experience a window treatment that can keep up with your busy life. Faux wood blinds feature a blend of manmade and real materials that produce a lightweight, yet ultra-durable product that’s great for homes with children and pets. We also recommend EverWood® for locations that experience extreme climates, like bathrooms and kitchens that are prone to humid conditions.
