An excellent insulatorBesides the great aesthetic character of wooden window coverings, we can stress the functional aspect as well. Wood is after all an excellent insulator. This might be important to keep the warmth inside during winter time and to keep the heath out during summer.
Of course, we have to mention that wood is a natural product which can show some reaction as a result of warmth and humidity. These minor changes of the wood give your product a little extra cachet.
Large surfaces, optimal hanging behaviorIf your home has large windows, than it is definitely worth while making the right choice of window covering. Window coverings such as roller blinds or roman shades are suitable for large windows, however there are a few remarks that should be taken into account.
