Wood blinds help bring warmth and charm into your space, by complementing your existing décor and enhancing the beauty of the room adding warmth and sophistication. Most wood blinds are made of basswood. Basswood is a light hardwood which is stained in many various shades of wood tones and white shades. There are many options that come along with wood blinds as well. You can choose to add a valance, motorized options, and several lift and tilt options.
