The finest quality wood blinds available, offered in a comprehensive color pallette. Our wood blinds are true wood products, made from 100% kiln-dried basswood. There will be variations in color, grain, textures and stability that are characterisitc of all woods. These variations will be especially visible in blinds with light color stains. The variations are normal and natural and conform to insdustry standards. Additionally, due to the improved closure of blinds with routless privacy features, slight bowing may become more noticable when slats are closed.
All blinds come standard with 3 1/2" Colonial Valance and Trapezoid bottom rail. Traditional routed slats can be upgraded to routeless/privacy option or decorative cloth tapes The routeless/privacy option eliminates cord holes in the slats, preventing annoying "sunspots" and ensuring privacy. Decorative cloth tapes allows to you futhure customize this product to match your rooms decor.

Like any wood furnishings, wood blinds should be dusted regularly to keep them looking new. Use a soft, clean cloth, chemically treated dust cloth or dusting mitt.
Blinds may also be cleaned by vacuuming them with a brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner or by wiping with a soft, damp rag. Stained blinds should be treated periodically with lemon oil or other wood preservative.
Our manufacturer warrants that wood blinds from this collection will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as original purchasor owns the products. See additional information on warranty page.
Some slight warpage, as well as natural variations in color and grain effect are normal with a wood product and are not considered defects. In addition, some fading and or dicoloration of the finish may occur over time. This is common with man-made coatings and is not considered a defect.
For added privacy we offer the routeless/privacy option. Slats do not have the traditional route holes. They have small knotches at the back of each slat. These knotches allow the slats to rest on the braided ladders. This elimates "sunspots" due to the traditional route holes found in slats. Slats are able to be removed easily from blind for cleaning. However because the slats only rest on top of the ladders, they tend to shift to the left and right very easily during operation of the blind. When this happens you simply realign the slats with your hands.
Another great option to customize your blinds is cloth tape. This allows you to choose a 1 1/2" wide cloth tape that will be used in conjunction with braided ladder to help support the slats. The cloth tapes come in a variety of colors to further enhance the decor of your home.
