How to choose Wooden blinds

for your living room

Samantha Gibson by Samantha Gibson

The natural beauty of wood enhances your living space and complements every style of décor. Wooden blinds have undergone something of a transformation in recent years, and you‘ll be pleasantly surprised at just how many different types there are to choose from.  Here, we talk you through the options.


Haywood wooden blinds are made from Basswood which has a beautiful soft grain. The blinds are available in four slat widths to suit different sized windows and to give you flexibility to manage the amount of light that filters through each slat. Choose from the warm wooden tones of Aspen and Canadian Maple, to contemporary finishes in Limed White and Washboard Grey.

White and cream living room schemes are always popular, and our range includes wooden blinds in shades of white, cream and ivory. For a bleached wood effect, choose Limed White and for a shabby chic style, it’s got to be Provence White. For a pristine, all-white scheme opt for Purity.

All of our wooden blinds can be accessorised with coloured tapes for a personalised look. From bold, contrasting colours, to zebra stripes and geometric patterns, choose a tape that picks up an accent colour from your living room wallpaper, carpet or sofa for a coherent scheme. Alternatively, choose a vibrant, contrasting colour for a contemporary feel.

We also produce a range of moisture-resistant Faux Wood blinds that are ideal for lounge-diners or open plan kitchens with a sitting area. Available in a range of natural and painted finishes, these blinds perfectly combine the good looks of a wooden blind with the practicality of Faux Wood materials.
