Wood calls to me – the natural warmth it exudes along quality and craftsmanship is reflected in every product made of wood.

Since there was no use talking about something I could not afford, I decided to check out what fell within my budget to cover my windows. The contemporary window coverings market gave me more choices than I had ever before. Graber Blinds, a renowned brand in window treatments had alternative options for wood blinds available in different styles like.

In addition, they are finished to repel dust and prevent yellowing due to over-exposure to the sun. Further, they are warp, crack, and rot-resistant, which is an excellent choice for use in climates that swing to extremes like in Columbia, characterized by its humidity, wind and rainfall.


I had the 2 inch Lake Forest Faux Wood Blinds from Graber installed on my window; they were priced way below my expectations for a product that looked so perfect. Available in different paints and stains, the decorative designer cloth tapes I got served to enhance my window decor, as did the color-coordinated cords and ladders. I could now also afford the cordless control that would eliminate the risk of strangulation for the kids and their pet. The routeless vanes offered excellent privacy and ambient glare control, so TV viewing during the day would be a painless experience.

Faux Wood Shutters can withstand harsh environmental conditions as well as the faux wood blinds, and quite easy to care for and operate. The arch louvers are designed with a grooved or rabbet edge for a tight closure that prevents air seepage and makes for great insulation. As the louvers are movable, it provides protection from the harsh sun when it intrudes.


Since I’d opted for faux wood blinds a faux wood arched shutter, I had kept well within my budget – I decided to indulge in covering my patio doors with real wood vertical blinds that are also specialty window treatments. The beautiful vertical slats of these 3½ – inch Vertical Elite Wood Blinds from Graber create a unique woodsy aura, and along with its corded operational smoothness, they make an awesome solution. The American Hardwood used in its manufacture is light weight, rich in texture, of consistent color, and most importantly, have attractive grains. The split stack assured me of a full view, and for privacy, I could tilt the vanes to the left or the right while still having light slant in, when the blinds were drawn closed.


Combining the real wood vertical blinds, faux wood arch shutter, and faux wood blinds have made an enormous difference to my decor, so much that I can’t believe it is the same home anymore. My windows have sure got all the poise they need for now.
