Custom Woven Wood Shades

Woven wood shades have a distinctive and organic look. 

They’re crafted from natural materials like bamboo, rattan, jute, reeds, and grasses.

  • They filter sunlight.
  • They provide privacy.
  • They reduce heat transfer through your windows.
  • They protect your belongings from UV radiation.

Plus, they add a casual, relaxed feeling to a room, and they’re strong enough to withstand years of regular use and sun exposure.

What Are Woven Wood Shades?

Woven shades differ from standard shades in one respect: their construction.

Thin, flexible strips of woven organic materials create a natural fabric that diffuses sunlight for a more inviting atmosphere.

One advantage of woven shades is their ability to blend with your decor. They work well in both contemporary and traditional settings, adding depth and visual interest to windows.

Designers favor woven shades because they strike a balance between functionality and aesthetics. They can be manufactured in custom sizes and shapes perfect for odd-shaped windows like arches, circles, hexagons, or trapezoids.

Benefits of Woven Wood Shades

  1. Natural Aesthetic: Woven shades are made from organic materials like bamboo, reeds, and grasses. They have a warm and earthy look.
  2. Light Control: Woven shades filter sunlight for a soft, diffused glow depending on the weave and material density. They’re ideal for rooms where you want to maintain a comfortable light level without glare.
  3. Privacy: These shades offer varying levels of privacy while allowing you to enjoy natural light.
  4. Versatility: Woven shades come in various styles, patterns, and weaves. They complement almost any interior design theme and color scheme.
  5. Energy Efficiency: Woven shades provide an extra layer of insulation and help to maintain a more comfortable indoor temperature.
  6. Durability: Materials like bamboo and rattan are known for their strength and durability. Woven shades can withstand daily use and are less likely to show wear than some other window treatments.
  7. Easy Maintenance: Regular dusting or vacuuming with a brush attachment keeps them looking fresh. Some materials are also resistant to stains and moisture.
  8. Customization: Various opacities let you choose the level of light filtration and privacy you need. Customized shades can fit different window sizes and shapes.
  9. Eco-Friendly: Since woven shades are made from natural, sustainable materials, they’re eco-friendly.

Customizing Your Woven Shades

  • Material: Your choices include bamboo, reeds, grasses, jute, and rattan. Each material has a unique texture and appearance.
  • Color: Woven shades come in various natural tones and finishes. You can select a color that complements your existing decor or a contrasting color for visual interest.
  • Weave Style: Tight weaves provide more privacy. Open weaves admit more light into the room. Consider the privacy and light control you need when choosing the weave style.
  • Opacity Level: Options range from sheer and light-filtering materials to blackout weaves.
  • Lining: Privacy liners enhance privacy, while blackout liners block out light entirely. We can add or remove liners according to your preferences.
  • Cord or Cordless: Cordless options have a sleek and child-safe design, while corded shades are easier to operate.
  • Motorization: We can motorize your shades for remote control, automatic programming to open and close at specific times, or smart home integration.
  • Valance Styles: Cassette valances, fabric-wrapped valances, and exposed roll valances are just a few of your choices. Each valance type offers a different aesthetic.
  • Edge Binding: Edge binding in contrasting or coordinating colors gives your woven shades a finished look and prevents fraying.
  • Top-Down/Bottom-Up: This feature lets you raise the shades from the bottom or lower them from the top for improved light control and privacy.
  • Custom Sizing: We can customize your shades to fit windows of various sizes and shapes, ensuring a perfect fit and consistent look throughout your space.
  • Decorative Accents: Decorative pulls, tassels, or rings add a personalized touch.
