Woven wood shades and bamboo blinds have grown in popularity over the years as they offer earthy accents and add natural warmth to the décor. However, there are many other factors that you should consider before investing in these window treatments. Let us see them one by one.

The lift system available in woven wood shades
Today, the options you get in window treatments are immense. It’s not only the types, but the lift mechanisms come in various options. If you have pets and small children, always opt for a cordless lift. There are no chances of strangulation. Cordless lift options offer a cleaner look also.
Cleaning woven wood shades
Cleaning dust and debris with a vacuum cleaner every 10-15 days is recommended. If there are any stubborn stains, take a damp microfiber cloth and dab it. Do not spray water directly as it may lead to excessive moisture retention in the shades leading to warping.
