Wooden blinds from Dunelm Mill
Wooden blinds are fast becoming one of the most desirable window dressings on the UK market. The wooden slats help to add a touch of sophistication and class to your home whilst still performing all of the normal functionalities of a blind. Wooden blinds are available in a range of colours from a traditional pine shade to a darker wood, as well as a very contemporary white wooden blind. Wooden blinds are characterised by the horizontal wooden slats that can be tilted to allow a portion of light to filter through or alternatively pulled up to the top of the window frame thus allowing your room to flood with natural sunlight. These types of blinds are often also commonly known as wooden venetian blinds.
