A popular trend in window treatments right now is the use of woven wood shades. Woven woods resemble roman shades, but instead of soft folds of material, they are made with natural material such as reeds, woods, and grasses. This distinctive look adds depth and warmth to any room, and its natural finish goes with any decor. As an added bonus, the use of renewable materials makes woven wood window coverings an environmentally friendly product. Stop by our showroom in Estero, serving the greater Naples area, to see full size displays of our woven wood window shades.
Where to use Woven Wood Shades
Woven wood shades are a great window treatment for any room. In the kitchen, woven wood shades are durable and can bring out the natural textures in your cabinetry. In a living room or dining room, woven wood shades serve as a subtle design element that doesn’t take away from other focal points in the room, such as furniture, wallcoverings, or artwork. In bedrooms, add a room-darkening liner for extra privacy and edge banding to match your bedding. In any room, add a custom fabric valance bring color to your window treatments.
