SweetGrass Shades in Charleston carries 3 different types of horizontal (aka “venetian”) blinds that feature cordless and even motorized control options.  Select from faux wood, real wood, or aluminum blinds--all with a wide array of colors, sizes, and options that will make every a window a window of opportunity.

Faux & Alternative Wood Blinds

We offer 2 different brands of faux and alternative wood horizontal blinds.

The Performance Premium and Performance Essential line from Norman Window Fashions is the industry’s #1 selling. Where some might charge more for the 2.5" style, we provide both the 2 inch and the 2.5 inch styles at the same cost.   The Everwood collection from Hunter Douglas features the TruGrain finish which looks just like real wood—see for yourself!  Both feature a "routless" option that blocks more light and produces a cleaner look when fully closed.

We can accommodate specialty shaped windows with alternative wood blinds!

Wood Blinds

Our horizontal  wood blinds come from 3 different manufacturers, each with different options and features to meet any window covering need or personal taste.

The Normandy line from Norman Window Fashions now offers a “Euro-style” valance-free head rail that eliminates the bulky clip-on valance we so often see. TimberBlind’s Veneto collection features hard-to-find 1” wooden slats. Finally, Hunter Douglas utilizes 100% basswood in its wooden slats and a magnetized valance that provides a sleek finish.

Hunter Douglas wood blinds work great in specialty shaped windows!

Aluminum Blinds

We also offer horizontal aluminum blinds in a variety of sizes from ½” micro slats to 2” macro slats in addition to a wide color palette.

For a more economical approach, Norman Window Fashions' City Lights blinds are perfect.  If you’re looking to use different colors on the same blind or take advantage of the “MagnaView” feature which nearly doubles your view-through, you'll want to go with our Hunter Douglas option.

We are able to provide window blinds for commercial jobs as well!
