Wooden blinds can be ap­peal­ing in a room lack­ing any form of in­ter­est in terms of de­sign. Be­cause the ma­te­rial it­self is of­ten used in home fix­tures, wooden blinds tend to fit bet­ter into de­sign, al­most as if they were a per­ma­nent part of the wall on which they sit. The ma­te­rial also adds warmth and nat­u­ral beauty to a space with its wooden grain.

How­ever, wooden blinds can be ex­ces­sively heavy, and might not sit too well with larger win­dows that re­quire more to cover, as they may be cum­ber­some to draw and lower. Dust also tends to­wards show­ing up more starkly against wood. In gen­eral, wooden slats form Vene­tian blinds with cords to pull the blinds up or down. Wood is also used to form blinds with slats that may be ro­tated such that light can pass through them, of­fer­ing a great de­gree of con­trol. to clean with a sim­ple wipe down, alu­minium can be used to form both ver­ti­cal blinds, as well as hor­i­zon­tal blinds, al­low­ing for ver­sa­til­ity where de­sign is con­cerned. These also come in a va­ri­ety of colours to suit your in­te­rior decor while ef­fec­tively block­ing harsh sun­light from en­ter­ing your home. Be­ing mois­ture-re­sis­tant, they are per­fect for both the kitchen and the bath­room. How­ever, blinds made of alu­minium tend to­wards be­ing noisy, so do ac­count for that, es­pe­cially if you’re go­ing to be in­stalling them in a baby’s bed­room.
