Woven Wood Shades

If you live an eco-friendly lifestyle, natural woven wood shades can add a natural look to any of the rooms and window treatments in your home, and the shades and textures of the eco-friendly window treatments can evoke a tropical, exotic feel to your living space. For many of our New Jersey customers, natural woven wood shades remind them of their honeymoon or a dream vacation. While on a getaway of a lifetime, they may have enjoyed the look and diffused sunlight of natural woven wood shades and were inspired to ‘bring that same feel home’ for their everyday enjoyment.

Today’s natural woven wood shades are available in sustainable materials, from bamboo to matchsticks, large reeds, flat wood slats, braided rattan and even assorted grasses. Colors range from barely-there tan to chocolate browns, reddish browns to tortoise greens, and natural woven shades can be designed with alternating rows of color – such as light and dark tan or a more dramatic light tan and dark brown – to create a natural, island-inspired effect and exotic feel.

Blackout shades will provide just that – a total blackout in your bedroom with pure darkness for your body’s ultimate rest and a great night’s restorative sleep that’s so important to your well-being. Health experts say we need at least eight hours of sleep, and if you’re going to bed at midnight and waking at 6:30am when the morning sun shines through your too-thin window shades, you’re missing out on the health benefits of good sleep.
