Consider wooden blinds for any room

The best thing about wooden blinds is that they will work in literally any room. They are perfect for adding privacy to a bedroom, a practical choice for a bathroom and a way to bring colour and texture into a living room. Swift wooden blinds are moisture resistant so you know they will last in a bathroom or even behind a kitchen sink, where they will be prone to the odd splash. All blinds are made to measure and there are also extra wide options for large or awkwardly shaped windows too.

Swift’s wooden blinds come in so many colours and stains so you can find a blind that will fit with your style and the vibe of your room. They are also a pretty timeless choice too, so if your tastes change you don’t have to worry about switching out your window dressings every time you redecorate. 

If you like a nice clean look in your space, we reckon a chic and simple white wooden blind would be the best choice. If you prefer a warmer more rustic look, stick to a light wooden blind in either real or faux wood – a lighter shade is still fresh and bright but it’s going to add that natural element to the room too. 

And there are coloured wooden blinds too! We are talking reds, pinks, blue, yellows, you can even choose to have the tapes a different colour if you just want a pop of something brighter. We think these would be such a fun addition to a kid’s bedroom or a playroom. 

Faux wood or real wooden blinds?

Well really this just comes down to your budget. So if you are redecorating and still want the best quality for your money but need to keep costs low, faux wood would be the way to go. Plus they are easier to maintain than wooden blinds being made from PVC. Swift’s faux wooden blinds do look like the real thing though, honestly, no one would know they weren’t real wood and they still come in plenty of lovely shades.

And if you just can’t resist the natural beauty of real wood, Swift’s real wooden blinds are still a great price. Again, loads of colours and shades to choose from and totally timeless too.
