Wood blinds do a great job warming up the energy on the room they get installed in. They are similar to faux wood blinds, but because of the wood they're made of, they make the room feel very warm and natural.
Plus, there are a couple operational systems you can add to make them very easy to operate like a cordless system or a motor to operate the blinds. And yes, these operational systems will make the cost of the blind to go up, but if the cost is an issue, there is absolutely anything wrong in having the regular and traditional operational system in your blinds.
The brands that we use and we are well familiarized with are Hunter Douglas, Timber Blinds and The Window Outfitters. We also know and use other brands like Norman, Design Shutters, among others, and if there's another brand that makes you curious, let us know about them and we'll review them together; we'll help you learn everything about the warranties, the styles, operational systems, prices... pretty much everything there is to know about that brand.
We're sure we can offer you the best deals and service for your house transformation. Get a hold of us and let us know how we can help.
