These wood blinds are made of 100% real wood and are offered in over 50 different finishes ranging from painted, stained, high gloss vanity and sandblasted finishes. Like fine quality furniture, Skandia's wood blinds are crafted from only the finest quality hardwoods. Options on these blinds include: Fabric Ladder Tape (Optional piece of cloth covering the strings eg. the blind pictured left) and motorization on 1" and 2" wood blinds.The fabric ladder tape is available in 15 different colors which include black,white, and yellow. It has been my experience with this option that the blind does not close as tight as when you use the standard ladders. Just food for thought in case light control is your primary objective.||
