Woven Wood Shades

Blinds & Designs of Florida provides custom window shades for residential and commercial customers in the Sarasota area. All our shades are custom-made to complement your style and available with many options to choose from.

Woven Wood Shades

Handcrafted from natural materials like reeds, grasses and natural woods, woven wood shades provide an organic style to your home. Materials like bamboo, wood planks, rattan, sisal, wild grasses, ropes, and twine are woven together in various patterns. Some styles use one material while others use a combination. These eco-friendly shades add texture and dimension to dress up your windows with unique, exotic beauty. Available in a multitude of colors, woven woods can provide the exact “feel” you are looking for. Lighter toned shades complement rooms with white or neutral décor while darker toned shades balance rooms with bold colors or dark wood accents. Looks range from rustic to elegant to complement any of your home furnishings.

When paired with liners, woven wood shades block 100% of UV rays and give full privacy when completely lowered. These optional fabric backings are available in both light filtering and room darkening, protecting your valuable furnishings, and providing enhanced privacy. Another option is to attach a decorative edge banding that allows you to preserve the quality of wood blinds while creating stylish, custom window fashions at the same time. Even the decorative valance can be customized to accommodate every style from traditional to contemporary. Woven wood shades can also be custom made to fit inside unconventional window shapes like arches, octagons and trapezoids and around difficult architectural elements like ACs, heat registers and window cranks.


With modern technology, woven woods are available in a variety of operating styles

For added convenience and safety, you can motorize your woven wood shades so easy operation is just a click away. The cordless option also eliminates dangling cords, creating a safe environment for children and pets. The top-down / bottom-up style allows you to lower the shade from the top, raise it from the bottom, or both. A panel track can easily cover large windows and sliding doors to create a cohesive appearance while a folding panel has a similar look and feel to draperies. All options create a minimal, neat stack and provide an endless range of privacy and light settings for any mood. Consult your Blinds & Designs expert on how woven wood shades can enhance your environment.

Automated Shades

Today, automation is an integral part of how we interact with the world. It is the way of the future that now extends to window coverings. Automated blinds and shades combine style, convenience, and safety for the perfect solution to hard-to-reach windows. Or maybe you want to save time because you have multiple window coverings that you’d like to raise or lower all at once. Even if you just prefer luxury and the ease of operation that atomization provides, your life will become so much easier!

Simple to maintain, automated blinds and shades are the most convenient way to regulate sunlight and privacy. You can adjust your window coverings to the desired height with a remote, wireless wall switch, smartphone, or tablet. With the quick push of a button or flip of a switch, you can easily control your blinds or shades from across the room. No more leaning, reaching over the couch or climbing up a step ladder to grab hazardous cords or wands. Now, children and pets stay safe as well.


Huge Selection of Motorized Options

At Blinds & Designs of Florida, we strive to be the leader in automation by offering a huge selection of motorized options with the latest and greatest technology. From timers to sun sensors, we incorporate the most up-to-date equipment to keep your home insulated and protected when you are at work or on vacation. Timers allow you to program your window coverings to open and close at specific times while sensors signal them to close when the sun is at its brightest. These features provide significant savings in energy costs and keep fabrics, rugs, upholstery, and artwork from fading. We can even easily integrate new technology to work alongside an existing system.

The type of automation depends on what type of window treatment you prefer. With shades, a motorized lift is used to raise or lower the entire shade. Ask your Blinds & Designs of Florida designer about the top-down / bottom-up feature that lets you open your shades from the top and the bottom, allowing you to create the perfect balance of natural light and privacy. If blinds are more your style, motorized tilt is used to tilt the slats or vanes open or closed. Cellular, pleated, roman, roller and solar shades use motorized lift while vertical, wood, and faux wood blinds use motorized tilt.
