What Are Woven Wood Shades?
Woven Wood Shades are woven shades for windows made from natural woods, reeds, bamboo or grasses. Woven Wood Shades add immediate visual interest to any room’s décor with their rich organic texture. They also provide a relaxed atmosphere, inviting the peace of the outdoors inside. Woven wood window treatments look beautiful layered with drapery or alone for a simple, natural look. If you’ve decided on woven wood window treatments for your home, we’re certain you’ve chosen a versatile window treatment style you’ll love for years.

Different Types of Woven Wood Shades
At The Shade Store, we offer four styles of woven shades for windows: Waterfall, Standard, Cascade and Roller. Three of these styles — Waterfall, Standard, and Cascade — can be thought of as Roman-style Woven Wood Shades due to how they stack when raised. The fourth style — Roller — operates just like a our regular roller shades made of fabric or other materials.
We’ll explain the differences among woven shades for windows and help you choose the right type depending on your needs and taste.
Woven Roman Shades: Waterfall, Cascade and Standard
Waterfall, Cascade and Standard Woven Wood Shades function like Roman Shades. The Shade Store offers a wide selection of materials and colors to complement your home décor.
Our Standard Woven Wood Shades provide clean lines and include a custom valance. This option allows for further customization with decorative borders, as seen above. Pictured: Standard Woven Wood Shade — Artisan Weaves Bayshore, Sage
Finally, for even more visual interest in your shade, the Cascade Woven Wood Shade features aluminum dowels hand-sewn into the shade every 5-7”, creating a beautiful ‘cascading’ horizontal pattern. Pictured: Cascade Woven Wood Shade — Grassweave, Snow
Similar to Roman Shades, the above three styles of woven shades for windows can be made with blackout and privacy linings, making them well-suited for bedrooms, bathrooms, rooms facing the street and other areas where privacy is essential. In addition, you can choose the Top Down Bottom Up option for Cascade, Waterfall and Standard Woven Wood Shades (this option is not available for Woven Wood Roller Shades). Top Down Bottom Up woven shades for windows let you lower the shade from the top and raise it from the bottom, letting in natural light while maintaining privacy.
Woven Wood Roller Shades

Unlike the previously mentioned styles of woven wood window treatments, our Roller Woven Wood Shades don’t stack at the top of the window when raised. Sophisticated and minimal, these woven shades for windows take up only a small amount of space at the top of the window when raised, making them ideal for spaces with beautiful views.
Woven Wood Roller Shades are light-filtering, meaning they let in a bit of ambient natural light even when the shades are lowered.
For the brackets that hold roller woven wood window treatments in place, you can choose from a variety of stylish finishes. We also offer upholstered valances in the same material as your roller shade, as well as sleek metal valances.
Cord vs. Cordless Wood Shades
The Shade Store offers woven wood window treatments with and without cords. Our cordless woven wood shades let you adjust your shades’ height with a simple pull. Our motorized woven shades for windows are the ultimate in smart home solution — letting you synchonize multiple window treatments, set your favorite positions and schedule timers with your remote, smartphone, tablet or home automation system.
