Discover Wooden blinds

Warm woods

Constructed using real wooden slats, Wooden blinds have the quality and luxury associated with a natural product, for spaces that feel naturally warm and welcoming.

They are available in four slat widths to suit different sized windows and to give you the flexibility to manage the amount of light that filters through each slat.

Choose from a range of warm wood tones, or pick one of our special finishes, or painted shades.

There is an intrinsic warmth about wood that brings a comforting addition to any home. It mimics the effects of spending time outside in nature and studies identify that the presence of wood indoors is associated with an enhanced feeling of well-being.

A lick of paint

Real wood, painted in a satin finish, creates a beautiful product.  White and cream bedroom schemes are always popular, and our range includes Wooden blinds in shades of white, cream and ivory.

Choose every shade from a bright white to create a crisp and clean look to chalky creams and distressed greys.

Functional Faux-Wood

Opt for a faux-wood blind and get the best of all worlds – the natural good looks of wood, with a practical, hard-wearing properties finish.

Available in a range of natural and painted finishes, they easily wipe clean and have a moisture-resistant finish, so they stand the test of time in steamy environments like kitchens and bathrooms.

Natural Bamboo

Our collection of Natural Bamboo blinds have been designed in collaboration with the interior experts at House Beautiful.

Made from fast-growing bamboo and designed to bring a natural look to your window that will stand the test of time, our Natural Bamboo blinds have a wood grain texture and are available in six stylish brushed finishes.

Time to customise

All of our Wooden and Faux-Wood blinds can be accessorised with tapes for a neat and contemporary finish.

Tapes help conceal the little holes in the slats where the cords of the blind run, keeping the overall look at your window clean and tidy. This changes the appearance of your Wooden blind, helping to recreate the look of shutters.
