Wood Blinds vs. Magnetic Mini Blinds
Magnetic Mini Blinds have become a popular solution for people with steel doors. The magnetic brackets hold the mounting in place, thus eliminating the need to try to drill screws into the door. Sounds like a great solution, except magnetic brackets aren’t completely stable. They can fall down or tilt, as they get older. Magnetic mini blinds were intended to be short-term solution for window coverings.
For longer lasting coverings for steel doors, consider wood blinds. Wood blinds can be easily screwed into steel doors with self tapping screws and a hand drill. These provide a permanent solution for a window covering ensuring privacy and light control.
One concern with magnetic mini blinds is if they fall down when you’re out of town, you won’t know how long your door has been exposed to potential burglars. With wood blinds there’s tons of options of styles and colors. The steel and wood interplay has become extremely popular in the last few years, combining modern and rustic elements to a design.
Wood blinds have long been a staple in homes and offices, giving a warm, natural look to any room. Distressed 2” Wood Blinds offer an antiqued appearance for a more rugged decorating design. They contrast nicely with steel doors and steel accents.
Distressed wood blinds compliment rooms that utilize reclaimed wood, or antique wood furniture. Designed to blend in with oak, chestnut and pecan wood accents, these window treatments come with a variety of decorative tape colors that pick up accent colors in the room.
These basswood blinds are custom-crafted, durable and warp resistant. A matching distressed wood valance and bottom rail are included as well as mounting hardware. A cord tilt control helps filter light to preferred levels. The design includes variations of dents, scratches and nicks for an authentic feel. Samples are provided.
Whether you choose distressed wood blinds, or normal wood blinds, your room will benefit from the natural element. Aluminum mini-blinds with magnetic brackets are affordable and practical, but they don’t add a design element to a room. Both blinds offer protection against sun, but wood blinds offer superior insulation.
Wood blinds can be mounted onto any surface, including steel doors. Many consumers shy away from purchasing wood blinds when they have steel doors, choosing magnetic mini blinds over wood blinds. However, magnetic mini blinds are only a temporary solution. Magnetic brackets tend not to be consistently stable.
