Why You Should Choose Wooden Blinds in Your Home

Wooden venetian blinds are this seasons must have for your home. They are a classy and stylish way to give your home an instant lift and can transform a room quickly and simply. These blinds have become more and more popular over the past year, and there is no sign of them slowing down in 2017 and beyond. Here we take a look at why you should choose wooden blinds, and what the best way is to use them in your home.  Learn how to transform a room quickly and simply.

Why choose wooden blinds?

Venetian blinds give you the ability to control the light entering into your room with just the pull of a cord. This is great when you need some privacy, or you just want to stop the sun reflecting off the TV (we’ve all had this struggle!).


With venetian blinds, simply twisting the slats by 45 degrees will still allow light in, but stop people being able to see in.  This is great if you have a room that looks out onto the road, or for when the sun comes round and shines into your room. If you choose the wider 50mm slats, you can have the look of plantation shutters but at a much lower price.

These larger 50mm slats are a great way to enhance the look of your room and when paired with the vertical cotton tapes, look stunning. The most popular are the white wooden blinds with wooden tapes.


Our wooden blinds are made from sustainable Basswood – once the slats are cut from the wood, we kiln dry them to make sure they don’t warp or bend once they are installed. This is a very important process and one that cheaper manufacturers often overlook. You can be sure that with Make My Blinds you are buying only the best quality blinds, made from the best quality materials. By using basswood the natural grain comes through once they are stained. With real wood blinds, each slat is unique and the grain will vary and alter across the blind. Our quality control team makes sure that any knots are removed that would affect the edge or end of the slat. The subtle variance between each slat gives these blinds character that is not matched by any other type of blind.


Why choose made to measure?

Made to measure blinds are the way forward, there is no point in purchasing a blind and then cutting it to size when you get home. These won’t last as long, might not fit your window perfectly and will generally not last as long either.

By choosing made to measure wooden blinds, you will get:

  • Perfect fitting blinds
  • 4 year guarantee
  • Bespoke sizes
  • The combination and style you really

By buying made to measure blinds online means you have a wider range of blinds to choose from, with many more styles and colours than a high street retailer will be able to stock and offer. Make My Blinds has focused on simplicity and making the measuring, ordering and installing process the easiest possible. When you buy with us you can rest assured that we make made your measure blind ordering process simple and quick. The benefit of choosing made to measure blinds over shop bought ones is that you don’t have to do anything to the blind. If you buy from a larger DIY retailer, then be prepared to cut the blind to the size required -often leading to frayed fabric or splintered ends on wooden venetian blinds.

How to transform your home

Do you have a room that looks a bit down and out? But not ready to renovate it yet? By installing wooden venetian blinds you can transform the room with minimal effort. Simply installing a set of these blinds will allow the light in, and help illuminate the room. This simple addition of light can be all it takes to help lift the room.

We offer our wooden venetians with and without tapes, this gives you the flexibility to choose. The wooden blinds with tapes are colour coded to make sure you get the best pairing. The tapes don’t make any difference to the operation of the blind, and are just down to personal preference.

Our wooden blinds are best installed into living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. If you want to install wooden blinds in your bathroom then we recommend opting for our Faux Wood range. These look the same as real wood, but have a moisture resistant property to them, making them perfect for damp or humid environments.
