Our primary vendor for wood blinds is Hunter Douglas. They have a very expansive wood blind offering at attractive prices. Their line is called Parkland™ wood blinds. (Formerly Country Woods).

Shades Of The Future® has searched the marketplace for wood blinds that offer the best price/value. Our recommendation is Hunter Douglas for wood blinds.

Reliable, consistent quality is the prime reason for this recommendation.

Slat sizes include 1 3/8″, 2″ and 2 1/2″ slats. There is even a 3 1/2″ wooden vertical product called Crosswinds.

Everwood® Faux wood blinds (Our best selling horizontal slat blind):

For a man-made alternative to wood blinds we recommend Hunter Douglas’ premium faux wood blind: Everwood. Our research and experience with this product shows that Everwood will perform in harsh, high humidity environments and where moisture may be splashed on the slats.

The extruded slat is a polymer composite blind that contains proprietary materials, but no wood or vinyl. Everwood’s horizontal stability far outshines the competition and doesn’t require closely spaced vertical ladder cords for support.

Everwood is now available in 11 white and off-white finishes with 11 TruGrain® stains. The de-Light™ feature is NOW available on 2″ and 2 1/2″ Everwood as a NO Charge option. The Everwood line is also available in a 2 1/2″ beveled edge slat.

The standard valance is now 3 1/4″ Grandover. Wide array of cloth tape upgrades are available.

The Everwood collection now includes TruGrain™, Hunter Douglas’ faux wood grain slat. Before TruGrain™, if you wanted a slat that looked like real wood, you only had real wood to choose. Now TruGrain™ slats are available and they look just like real, stained wood. Hunter Douglas has developed a process that applies a grain print to the slat that is indistinguishable from the real thing. The TruGrain® stains are fantasic and will fool anyone. It looks just like wood, but water won’t harm them.

The TruGrain® line has been expanded and now offers slats that look like grass weaves, textured wood and leather. A truely unique line exclusive to Hunter Douglas.

Hunter Douglas now offers battery operated, remote control tilt on virtually ALL of their horizontal blind products.
