When shopping for new window blinds, the first type that often comes to mind are classic wood blinds. Horizontal blinds with a natural wood finish add comfort and character to any room. Blindster offers a wide selection of genuine wood window treatments in a variety of sizes and colors, all at the best prices.
Blindster's made-to-measure wood window coverings are 100% basswood, a premier natural hard wood that is both lightweight and durable and the ideal wood for horizontal blinds. Our wood venetian blinds with horizontal slats are perfect for almost any window, including large windows. However, if you want the look of hardwood blinds but need more durability at a lower cost, check out our Faux Wood Blinds. Fauxwood window treatments are a practical, low cost window blind alternative. Also, compare real wooden blinds with faux wood by reading Blindster's Real Wood vs Faux Wood Blinds article.
10/01/2012 - We just installed the wood blinds we ordered and I couldn't be happier!
I was a little nervous about measuring and ordering online, but it was easy and each of the 4 blinds I ordered fit perfectly! My living room now has a nice new updated look and I will be recommending blindster to everyone I know.

The right color choice is important. Wooden window treatments should complement a room's Décor and never clash or look out of place. Most wood window blinds can be put in one of two color categories: whites or stains. White window blinds range from bright white to more subdued almond or ivory hues. When you choose a stained wood blind option, your color options really expand!
A room with existing furniture and accessories can help determine what color of window treatments would work best. Rather than creating a new color scheme for a room, real wood window coverings can help organize an existing color scheme. Prefer window shades? Bamboo Woven Wood Shades offer the same natural look of wood window blinds in different textures and colors
At Blindster, we offer a variety of genuine wooden window blind styles, sizes and color options to suit any window covering need. We carry 1", 2", and 2 1/2" slat horizontal blinds that can be customized with a variety of options and colors depending on your style preferences. The difference in window covering slat size is somewhat personal taste. Functionally, a larger slat size offers a wider, shutter-style view to the outside when open.
Depending on your window blind selection, widths range from 7 to 108 inches, and heights vary from 10 to 126 inches. Color options range from 4 for our 2" Super Value Wood Blinds to 25 for the 2" Premium Wood Blind.
The following options are available on our Premium Wood Window Blinds to increase light control and privacy:
Cloth Tapes: Cloth tapes are a popular decorative option available on horizontal blinds. With this option, the standard braided cord ladders are replaced with decorative tape available in a variety of colors. Cloth tapes also increase privacy and light control by covering the route holes.
Routeless Slats: When you choose routeless slats for your horizontal blinds, the slats have no route holes. Instead, the ladder cords are held in place by small notches at the back of the slat. This provides additional light control and privacy for your custom window covering.
