(Window Coverings, Home Improvement and Decor) Permanent link   All Posts

When it comes to blinds, there are a variety of materials available. Tacoma wooden blinds are among some of the most popular for the vintage look. They offer a range of benefits. Here’s a look at all the reasons you will want to invest in wooden blinds for your home.

They Offer Extensive Light Control

Most wooden blinds are slat blinds. They either slat vertically or horizontally, although the latter is the most popular. Either way, the slats allow much more light control than other types of blinds and shades. Because of the slats, you can turn them to allow plenty of light, no light, or little light into the room.

Not just that, but you can affect the way the light sits when it comes into the room. You can prevent it from glaring into your eyes or on your TV. It’s possible to aim it to a specific point in the room, manipulating the beams with ease.

It is important to change where you direct the light now and then. The UV rays will cause damage and discoloration to various parts of the home.

They Offer Extensive Insulation

Fed up of your home constantly feeling hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter? Hate the need of putting your heating on all the time when it is cold? You likely lose or gain a lot of heat through your window. Wooden blinds in Tacoma will solve this problem.

When the blinds are closed, the heat in the room isn’t able to get past and escape through the windows. People have found their heating bills in the winter drop considerably. Likewise, their air conditioning bills can decrease in the summer. The blinds can prevent the heat from coming through the window and into the home!

They Are Durable in Most Cases

For the majority of rooms in your home, Tacoma wooden blinds certainly make a lot of sense. The material is durable and long lasting. As long as you care for your blinds, including removing dust from forming between the slats, then you will find the blinds last for decades.

The only room they’re not great for is the bathroom. The heat and moisture can cause the wood to warp. You’ll want to look into faux wooden blinds in Tacoma instead. You get the vintage look but without the warping disadvantages.

When using wood in the other rooms, you’ll find they look beautiful and last. You will not regret the money you spend.

They Are Extremely Easy to Clean

Yes, maintenance is a must, but this is the case with any type of blind you get. The good news is that maintenance is extremely easy with wooden blinds. The material is used to gaining some moisture. There’s no need to take them down and rush them through the washing machine and then dryer! You can get some soapy water or a damp cloth to run over the slats.

Cleaning the cords will be slightly trickier, but some warm soapy water will work. You only need to clean the blinds once a month or so. But every day, you will want to use a dry cloth just to wipe away the dust.

Consider wooden blinds in Tacoma for your home. They work in the majority of rooms and will help you benefit in far more ways than simple light control.
