Switch between Unabated Views and Untouched Privacy

One of the primary advantages of using blinds or shades is the ability to be able to switch between wonderful views and complete solitude when needed. Woven wood shades are available in a variety of patterns, designs and colors. This not only offer you plenty of options when it comes to the aesthetics, but one can also choose the exact amount of natural light they wish to let in thanks to the diffusion caused by the shades. While some of the shades are woven to make completely opaque surfaces, others are put together lightly for a more translucent look.

Textural Contrast for a Spa-like setting

The urban jungle that surrounds us is dominated by metal, concrete, stone and glass. In a world that is overwhelmed by these man-made materials, it makes sense to add a natural and far more pleasant element. Woven wood shades are one of the easiest ways in which you can bring in the right textural contrast without having to make huge changes to the interiors. They can be used both on the inside and the outside of the window and their ‘natural presence’ instantly softens the place. Bamboo blinds and jute shades also bring in a pleasant and holiday retreat-styled atmosphere.
