What are Woven Wood Shades?
With a very neutral and natural aesthetic, woven wood shades offer a unique style with a luxurious feel. Made from varying types of flexible woods and natural materials like reeds, grass blades, bamboo, jute, and others, woven wood shades are often also called “natural shades” due to their material composition. They are often quite extraordinary as many are hand-woven and manufactured.
One of the unique features of woven wood as opposed to solid wood used in shutters is the flexibility it allows for the material. By providing such movement, natural shades can be installed with many different functions in Denver, including the ability for it to hang straight down or have folds like with pleated or Roman shades. You can also include things to make them more custom, like including a blackout material or incorporating a motorization system to eliminate extra hanging cords and create a safer environment for children.
Woven wood shades often add a casual and relaxed feeling to the atmosphere of the space and can also make a strong statement. You can use woven wood shades to make a more formal space feel more relaxed or add a natural touch to a space which feels more structured.
