Is there a more timeless window treatment than horizontal blinds? Always elegant, always functional, and never out of style. Skandia's horizontal collection includes a selection of wood blinds, faux wood blinds, and aluminum blinds.
Custom wood blinds are available in a variety of paint and stain colors, and slat size of 2". For an elegant, and entirely cord-free treatment, consider motorized wood blinds.
Our custom faux wood blind collection also offers color and slat size variety. The collection features 2" and 2-1/2" slat sizes and many paint and stain color options.
In addition to wood and faux wood blinds, we offer 1" aluminum blinds. Our aluminum blind collection features our new cord-free offering, which includes an affordable wand motor.
Features of Our Horizontal Blinds
Privacy and Light Control
Horizontal blinds are one of the most versatile window treatments in regards to privacy and light control. This is due to the ability to control the lift and the tilt of the blinds independently. Tilting the horizontal blinds to certain angles can allow for light to flow in to a room without allowing outsiders to see in. Closing the venetian blinds entirely allows privacy and light control. There are routeless and decorative tape ladder options that will enhance the light and privacy controls.
Want to enjoy the view? Either lift the blinds or tilt them to the open position. Doing so will still provide a degree of light control, while increasing the ability to view out.
Decorative Tapes: Horizontal blinds will have route holes. These route holes will allow small amounts of light to come into the room. For select products, decorative cloth tapes are available to cover route holes, while providing an elegant, refined look in the process.
Privacy Blinds: In contrast to the above, horizontal blinds don't have to have route holes. Visions™ routeless option offers no route holes. Cords run through notches at the back of the slats and are hidden when the blind is closed eliminating light gaps and peep holes caused by route holes.
Wide Windows: Like any other product, horizontal blinds have certain width restrictions. Our width restrictions for one horizontal blind range from 6 feet to 12 feet. For wider windows, multiple blinds can be fabricated on one headrail, making it possible to cover windows that exceed the width restrictions.
Motorization: For maximum convenience and control, we offer motorization on select wood, faux wood, and aluminum horizontal blinds. Motorization options include battery, DC, or solar power as well as a variety of control options (wall switches, multi-channel remotes, and even smartphone control).
