Stylish, Sleek, Sustainable

Created from natural, eco-friendly materials such as rattan reeds, jute, natural woods, and even a variety of grasses, woven wood shades from Budget Blinds of S.E. and Southwest Rochester impart a craftsman-like, nature vibe to a room that inspires comfort. Our woven wood shades, also known as woven wood blinds, are made from 100% organic materials, making them completely recyclable, environmentally friendly custom window treatments.

Woven wood shade styles include standard Roman shades, which offer a clean, classic look and rise evenly into neat, flat folds; looped Roman style, which features soft, billowing loops of natural material for a more dimensional look; and hobbled, waterfall style, which hangs from the front of the headrail and positions the cords behind the shades for a clean look. Select woven wood shades, including ones from our Inspired Shades Collection, are available as sliding panels and woven wood drapes that can be configured to open via a one-way draw, from the center, or as free-moving panels. 

Benefits of Woven Wood Shades

  • Eco-Friendly Materials - Woven wood shades are crafted from renewable materials such as bamboo and jute, introducing an eco-friendly window treatment option with a naturally organic appeal. This choice adds a warm, rustic charm to your home, aligning with green living principles.
  • Versatile Color and Style Options - Our Inspired Shades™ collection offers woven wood shades in a broad spectrum of colors, including on-trend grays, vibrant reds, and soothing creams, as well as natural wood hues. This wide palette ensures a perfect match for any room décor.
  • Customizable Shapes and Sizes - These shades are available in various custom shapes, including arch top or angled shades, allowing them to fit unique window sizes and shapes perfectly. This customization makes them ideal for specialty windows that are challenging to cover with standard shades.
  • Light and Privacy Control - Woven wood shades can be sheer or semi-sheer, providing a soft, diffused light that enhances the ambiance of a room. For more substantial light control and privacy, they can be outfitted with a blackout liner, making them excellent for bedrooms and home theaters where controlling light is crucial.
  • Coordinated Look - Complete your room’s design by coordinating woven wood shades with complementary woven drapes and panels. This allows for a unified look across both windows and sliding doors, enhancing the design flow and continuity within the space.
  • Advanced Operating Styles - Available in various operating styles, including popular top-down/bottom-up, cordless, and motorized options, woven wood shades offer enhanced safety and convenience. These features make them ideal for households with children and pets, providing ease of use and eliminating the risk of cord hazards.

Customization & Options for Woven Wood Shades

  • Lining

    Woven wood shades can be customized with various lining options to enhance privacy and light control. You can choose from no lining, which allows natural light to filter through while providing minimal privacy, or opt for privacy lining, which offers additional seclusion and better light blocking. For complete darkness, a blackout lining is ideal, particularly for bedrooms or media rooms where controlling light is essential.

  • Edge Banding

    Edge banding is a stylistic customization that adds a contrasting or complementary border to the edges of the woven wood shades. This not only enhances the visual appeal of the shades but also helps in reinforcing the edges, reducing the likelihood of fraying and extending the lifespan of the shades. Edge banding can be chosen in various colors and materials to match or accentuate your room's decor.

  • Motorization

    Motorization is an increasingly popular customization for woven wood shades, offering convenience and functionality. With a motorized system, you can easily raise or lower your shades with the touch of a button, a remote control, or even through a smartphone app. This is particularly useful for hard-to-reach windows or for integrating your shades into a smart home system. 

Exclusive Inspired Shades™ Collection

Budget Blinds is proud to offer you our designer collection of two original product lines: roller shades and natural woven shades. The collection features designs and patterns that are on-trend, versatile, modern, and vibrant, built with optional child-safe operating systems and light control features.  The Inspired Shades Collection is available in the U.S. and Canada through Budget Blinds’ locations serving over 10,000 cities.

Woven Textures & Natural Materials

Traditionally, natural woven wood shades are heavy, rustic, and limited to the natural colors of bamboo and wood.  The natural woven shades featured in the Inspired Shades Collection bring a new level of softness, finesse, elegance, and simple, natural beauty to the home. There are 38 unique blends of soft, natural fibers – like hemp, jute, and flax – woven into the thinnest threads to make the lightest natural shades both durable and delicate.  Vibrant reds, greens, and blues are used in the decorative accents, silk-edge bindings, sewn-in ribs, and other finishing touches. The colors are all-natural plant dyes and are 100% sustainable.

Woven Shade Considerations & Alternatives

Seeking a Natural and Textured Look?

Woven wood shades provide a distinct aesthetic by incorporating natural materials like bamboo, reeds, and jute into their design. This lends an organic and textured look that enhances any space with warmth and earthiness, making them ideal for settings that benefit from a touch of nature. Perfect for those who appreciate a more rustic or eco-friendly décor style, these shades add character and depth, complementing both traditional and modern interiors.

Natural Light Filtration

One of the key features of woven wood shades is their ability to filter light in a way that creates a warm, diffused ambiance, which is less uniform than what is found with synthetic materials. This natural light filtration provides a soft, serene atmosphere that can transform the mood of a room. However, for individuals needing more precise light control or complete darkness, adding a liner or considering alternatives like cellular shades might be more effective.

Looking to Combine Beauty with Practicality?

Woven wood shades beautifully merge aesthetic appeal with functional benefits. These shades not only elevate your decor with their natural and textured appearance but also provide practical advantages like enhanced privacy and effective UV protection, especially when paired with options such as blackout liners. If you’re looking to maximize energy efficiency or sound insulation, woven wood shades can be easily layered with other window treatments, offering versatile solutions that meet a variety of needs while maintaining a stylish, cohesive look.

A Long-Term Decor Investment

Choosing woven wood shades can be seen as an investment in your home’s aesthetic value and comfort. They are not only stylish but are also made from high-quality, sustainable materials that stand the test of time when maintained properly. For those who prioritize environmental sustainability and want their decor to reflect a commitment to natural beauty, woven wood shades are an excellent choice, offering a blend of functionality, style, and environmental responsibility.

Frequently Asked Questions About Woven Wood Shades

Woven wood shades stand out by offering a distinct, natural aesthetic that incorporates organic materials such as bamboo, reeds, and grasses. This natural composition provides a unique texture and warmth that synthetic blinds or plain curtains cannot match, making them perfect for adding an earthy, organic touch to any room.

Woven wood shades are highly customizable, available in various colors, textures, and weaves that can match any décor style. They can also be outfitted with additional features like liners for privacy and light control, or top-down/bottom-up controls (US only) for adjustable coverage, enhancing their functionality and aesthetic appeal.

While woven wood shades add a beautiful natural element to any space, they are best used in areas with controlled humidity. It is advisable to avoid placing them in bathrooms or kitchens where moisture levels are high, as the natural materials can warp or deteriorate over time. For such environments, faux wood or moisture-resistant treatments are recommended.

Woven wood shades provide variable light control and privacy depending on their weave and the materials used. Lighter weaves allow natural light to filter through while still offering privacy, whereas tighter weaves can significantly block light and offer greater privacy. Adding a liner can further enhance these properties, making them suitable for bedrooms or private spaces.

Maintaining woven wood shades is straightforward: regular dusting with a feather duster or a soft cloth will keep them clean. For deeper cleaning, a vacuum with a brush attachment can be used gently. It's important to avoid using water or harsh cleaning agents as they can damage the natural materials.

Choosing the right woven wood shades involves considering both the style and the functional needs of your space. Neutral tones can blend seamlessly with any décor, while darker or vibrant colors can serve as a focal point. Consider the amount of light and privacy you desire, as well as the overall aesthetic you want to achieve. Samples are invaluable for visualizing how different styles will look in your home’s specific lighting and setting.
