Wood blinds are timeless, traditional, and classic and are made from a variety of woods. Wood blinds are extremely versatile as they are available in a wide array of finishes or paint colors. Most often found in a horizontal style, they can be custom crafted for almost any window size or shape.

Offering the look and feel of real wood, faux wood blinds are particularly durable and can withstand humidity, intense sun, and other extremes.

Vertical blinds are great for sliding glass doors and large windows are available in a number of materials such as aluminum, vinyl, and fabric. You can select the lush look of drapery or a more minimal style or something in between depending upon your décor and taste. No matter what style you choose, your vertical blinds will provide plenty of light and privacy control.

An alternative to traditional vertical blinds, sliding panel blinds are an excellent shading solution for larger window coverings. Because they are cordless and ride on a track, they are child and pet friendly while still offering the look of luxury. The sheer style will allow lots of light or you can choose a room-darkening version.

In your office, commercial blinds protect your equipment and furniture from the sun and can save you money because they are energy efficient. You can choose wood, faux wood, metal, or fabric to enhance the office experience for your employees and clients.
