Made to Measure Wood Venetian Blinds

Wood Venetian Blinds

The natural beauty of wood combined with the crisp, clean lines of horizontal slats bring a natural warm texture to a room and can be a great focal point.

As well as being desirable, they’re easy to dust & wipe making them ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. Simply tilt, raise or lower the slats for fantastic light control. We use the finest ecologically approved Basswood slats as they are hard-wearing, tight-grained wood and able to resist the bowing associated with some timber blinds.

Our made to measure Venetian blinds are available in both 25mm and 50mm and they come in a wide range of light and dark woods, cream grey, white and black coloured slats which are either painted or stained ends to add an extra finish to the blind.  

25mm Slats

This option offers a denser look and is suited to smaller windows, where a 50mm system may look out of place. Motorised lift & tilt is available for blinds up to 2sqm. Please be aware that some ladder tapes and some colour options are not available for 25mm slats.

50mm Slats

This is the more popular choice offering a substantial yet clutter free appearance. Motorised tilt with cord raise/lower is available for all blinds. All colour options and ladder tapes are available for 50mm slats.


Standard cords or ladder tapes?
Blinds are finished with co-ordinating ladder braid which is functional and unobtrusive.  To further enhance your blind, an attractive woven “ladder tape” is available as an option.


Wood venetian blinds are supplied with a matching pelmet in the same colour as your chosen slat.  If you specify a blind to be fitted inside a recess, a front pelmet will be supplied.  If you specify outside the recess, you have the option of a rebated pelmet to cover either side of your blind.

Upgrade to Somfy Motorised 

There are two control options for motorised wood venetian blinds

Tilt and Raise – allows you to tilt the slats,  raise and lower your blind by remote control.  this option is only available on 25mm slats.

Tilt only – allows you to tilt the slats by remote control.  A cord is used to raise and lower your blind.  This option is available on 25mm and 50mm slats.

There are lots of different power options and control options so please see the individual information tabs for more information.

Revolutionising Home Comfort Control

Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS) is Somfy’s exclusive control platform which enables users to adjust motorised interior window coverings and motorised exterior products such as awnings, rolling shutters, pergolas and screens from virtually anywhere.


  • RTS is omnidirectional and travels through walls making controlling motorized products easy. You don’t necessarily have to be in the same room as your motorised product(s), or aim at them in order to operate.
  • No extra wires are needed.
  • Features Somfy’s exclusive “my” function, which allows you to program a preferred product position.
  • You can mix and match controls as you wish.  Use a fixed wall switch or a remote or use both.
  • Provides the ability to change user preferences anytime with simplified programming.
  • RTS allows you to build your home automation system gradually. For example, you can start with a motorised curtain, then add blinds and other accessories later.
  • What’s more, RTS adapts easily to changes in your interior layout, as you can add control points or move them at will.

How does it work?

A simple press of a button on a remote control or wireless wall switch sends out a radio wave signal to move any motorised interior or exterior window coverings with ease. There is no need to point or aim the transmitter because RTS is omnidirectional and operates within a range of up to 65 feet. And just like a garage door opener, the radio waves travel through walls, making control of motorised products easier than ever.


What are channels and groups?

Somfy motors are compatible with third-party home automation systems, allowing the user to access and control their motorized window treatments from their home automation remote, touch-screen, wall panel or smartphone, which also controls lighting, security, HVAC and audio-video equipment.
