Window treatments of any kind serve a multitude of purposes. They can add to the ambiance and décor of a room; they can help control lighting by blocking or admitting sunlight; and they can even influence the temperature in a room by shielding the interior air from the influence of exterior temperatures. Can all window treatments do all of these? No, but wood blinds can.

If you’re looking to change the ambiance of any room in your home, then consider wood blinds. With a natural tone and smooth, rich texture, wood blinds bring sophistication with just the right amount of casual comfort. Southern Shutters & Blinds in Georgetown, TX, offers an affordable selection of wood blinds so you can enjoy all of the advantages that these attractive window coverings offer.
Wood Blinds for Beauty
Wood blinds bring warmth and texture to a room. Whether you choose a product from the Southern Shutters & Blinds private line of 2” or 2½” wood and faux-wood blinds or one of our Hunter Douglas products, you’ll enjoy the way these blinds transform a room. If you select natural wood blinds, then a stain can be applied to the blinds’ surface that will enhance the grain of the wood. And if you choose painted wood blinds, then you’ll have the strength, durability and thickness of wood with a color that complements the décor of your room.
Wood Blinds for Privacy
Another advantage of wood blinds is the degree of privacy they offer. To an extent, all blinds obscure the view into a room from the outside when the blinds are closed. But because they are made of a solid product and tend to be of thicker construction, wood blinds completely block the exterior view, so you and your family can enjoy the comfort and security of visual privacy.
Wood blinds are designed to last with a minimum of care. Maintaining wood blinds is simple; they only require dusting and an occasional cleaning with a soft cloth and a light cleanser. Wood blinds will give you years of enjoyment.

Blinds are hard window coverings, made of individual slats or vanes, which tumble down or across the blind. The slats are controlled by a manual pull cord. They may be closed tightly for privacy, or adjusted to allow you to control the amount of light needed. Blinds can come in a variety of forms including wood, faux wood, woven wood, mini-blinds, and vertical blinds. They are usually made from wood, metal, a composite or woven grass, or bamboo. Most windows should be covered by horizontal blinds. Vertical blinds are best used to cover extremely large windows and patio doors. Blinds are best suited for rooms with strong architectural features like high ceilings, columns, and beams.
Shades are soft window coverings made from a continuous roll of material. They stack neatly at the top of the window. Shades are typically drawn up and down by cords or rolled up with a spring device. Unlike blinds, the fabric and feeling of a shade is flexible and flowing. Although shades can’t be adjusted for lighting, they do come in a range of opacity to accommodate light preferences. Popular varieties include Roman shades, roller shades, and cellular shades. Shades are best suited for layered and intimate spaces. If you prefer either a minimum or maximum amount of light, you can choose between sheer shades and blackout shades.
- Cellular shades are most popular because they are made of tiny pockets that trap hot and cold air creating an energy efficient source for your home.
- Roller shades are the standard economical shades that simply roll up and down.
- Roman shades are made of more elaborate and elegant fabrics which create soft horizontal folds down the window as they are lowered. Roman Shades are a decorative alternative to traditional drapery.
