Basswood Shutters Ideas
Basswood shutters offer a warm, rich look to a room and block sunlight and offer privacy. Some types of wooden blinds can fall on the expensive side, but wooden blinds tend to be durable, and when properly maintained, they can last for a long time. When choosing wooden blinds, the location of the windows should be considered as well as your personal taste in terms of color, shape and size.

Strong and durable, basswood shutters offer a warm and appealing aesthetic to your room. They are low maintenance and the slats can be shaped to control the light better than vinyl or aluminum blinds. They are also good insulators, keep the cold air in the winter months and block the sun during the summer months. Wooden blinds are light, but are often weighed at the edges so that they do not blow their place when covering an open window.
Basswood shutters should not be installed in areas with high moisture content, such as a bathroom or kitchen. Moisture can cause the wood to discolor and shred. Areas in your home where extreme temperatures can be a problem, for example, in the mail way or basement, are not ideal places for wooden blinds either. Wooden blinds can be available in a variety of wood, but Raman and Basswood are the most common materials for traditional designs.
