Woven Woods are made from the combination of natural bamboo and grass. They are known for their natural look and earthy colors with a roman shade look.
Benefits: Woven Woods are a great solution to decorate your kitchen windows and to coordinate colors with your cabinets. Some textures can provide privacy without liner; otherwise, they will act as a filter between the inside and the outside. Unlined woven woods can block the sun, keep some of the view while controlling the privacy in the day time, and they fit almost every opening.
Common usage area: they are used typically in residential homes to improve the look of the room; although, it’s not recommended to use them more in more than one room because of the strong character of the treatment.
Mounting requirements: For the inside mount, they need to have a minimum of a 1” mounting requirement, otherwise they can be mounted on the wall
Types: They are made of bamboo, grass, sticks or combined. The natural grass material has a great organic look, while the machine-made has a consistent look. The bamboo type can be made of wide flat pieces, as well as small, round, full, or sticks.
Colors available: woven woods are known for their natural colors, such as beige and brown; although, the industry developed a wide variety of modern colors, including a bleached white.
Recommended manufacturer: There is no preferred manufacturer for the Woven Woods; although, for a whole house, it’s suggested to use a reputable manufacturer for future warranties and color fading.
Controls: they are mainly controlled with a cord lock for the lift system, although they can be controlled with a continuous loop cord, a cordless system, or a motorized system.
Child safety: woven woods with cord lock require cord cleats to be installed in order to keep the pull cords out of the reach of children. Because of the nature of the roman-shade style, to eliminate any risk it’s recommend to use manufacturers that provide tape lift instead of cords.
