There are a lot of people today who assume that because something is lower in cost, that it must, of necessity be better. The simple truth is that quite often the opposite is true. In many cases, the old adage about getting what you pay for is the reality. While many different kinds of Venetian blinds or the plastic or metal blinds will help to lower the means to view into your home, some are thin enough that it's still possible to see it.
Wooden blinds have some very practical and impressive advantages over the other types of blinds. One of those advantages is the privacy that the blind offers to you. It means that you will be more secure in the knowledge that your wooden blinds are much thicker and less easily able to be seen through. The view from a wooden blind is literally non-existent, making it nearly impossible to see through the blinds. They are also able to offer you security for this reason. When your wooden blinds are closed, particularly when you are not at home, it is possible to prevent people from viewing into your home in order to ascertain that no one is there.
Some other very practical advantages to the use of wooden blinds is that they are far easier to clean than those which are made of plastic and metal.
Every one of us has at times attempted to create a way to clean the blinds which are made of metal. In many cases the metal is so thin as to be quite dangerous. Do you know anyone who hasn't cut a hand or finger while trying to clean some kind of metal or plastic blind? They tend to be very sharp on the edges and great care is necessary to avoid injury.
What we love most about wooden blinds is the ability to decorate them just as you'd like them to look in your home. In many cases, we've taken some wooden blinds, closed them tightly and then stamped or stenciled a decorative edging on them. They are easily painted. Open the blinds slightly and then spray paint or sponge paint to create a decorative effect that wll work well in any living room or even the most decorative room in your home.
Decorating wooden blinds is easily accomplished, while doing so with plastic blinds or metal varieties is quite nearly impossible. To find out more about the advantages that wooden blinds can offer you, why not check out the made to measure blinds from Direct Blinds.
