Hunter Douglas Wood Blinds available at JC Licht

When you want to create a warm, inviting atmosphere in your Chicago home, wood accents are the way to do it. Wood is luxurious yet rustic, bringing life and lived-in charm to a room. You can introduce this natural material into any aesthetic, and we'll show you how easy it is.

The Wide Appeal of Wood

Wood is sustainable and biodegradable, making it an eco-conscious choice for your home's decor. In today's busy, colorful world, wood's calming, neutral nature is a welcome addition to many interior design themes. The beauty of wood accents lies in their simplicity and versatility. 

Your wood accents can be stained with a glossy finish or left in their natural state for a raw, primitive vibe that pairs well with other organic materials, like stone and leather. No matter what type of timber or finish you choose, the warmth of wood will never go out of style.

An Accent Wall That Wows

Our customers have interior design savvy to spare and know the impact an accent wall has on a room. A wood accent wall adds architectural interest and is more durable than traditional paint or wallpaper options. Adding a wood accent wall is also a fantastic way to embrace a minimalist style. 

When the wall offers color, texture, and visual interest, you don't need a lot of other decorative accents in the space. This is especially true when using reclaimed wood with significant color and grain variations. However, wood is a jack of all trades in interior decor and will look outstanding in all aesthetics, including traditional, contemporary, and eclectic.

Warm Up Your Windows

Wood blinds are a simple way to bring warmth to the windows in a room. Use a dark stain to make your room feel more cozy and elegant or a lighter shade to play up the airy feel of an open-concept space. If you want the ambiance of natural materials without using a colored stain, white wood blinds are easy to coordinate with a wide range of interior designs. 

You probably think that white doesn't offer much warmth, but the color exists on a broad spectrum with endless warm undertones. Shades of off-white, like cream, eggshell, or bone, bring gentle warmth to your home while maintaining a crisp appearance. White wood blinds reflect and diffuse light which makes them an excellent solution for rooms that need a bit of brightening.
