Pinoleum Blinds

A blend of traditional and modern design, pinoleum blinds are renowned for their distinct appearance and ability to regulate light and heat

Pinoleum blinds, are made from thin strips of natural wood or reed, intricately woven together to form a versatile window covering


Pinoleum blinds were traditionally used to provide shade and privacy in conservatories. Over the years, they have evolved and diversified into a wide range of styles, materials, and designs, catering to contemporary aesthetic preferences and functional needs. Today, pinoleum blinds can be found in a variety of residential and commercial spaces, offering an elegant solution for those seeking a unique window covering that balances a natural aesthetic with practicality.

One of the most appealing aspects of pinoleum blinds is their ability to provide a natural and eco-friendly alternative to synthetic window treatments. Suited for both traditional and modern interiors, these blinds exhibit an effortless charm, allowing for seamless integration within a diverse range of design schemes. Furthermore, their functionality in regulating light and heat transmission ensures energy efficiency and ultimately a more comfortable living environment.

Understanding Pinoleum Blinds

Pinoleum blinds are a type of window covering made from strips of woven wood or natural fibres, typically basswood or another high-quality material. These blinds offer a unique design style, combining the warmth and beauty of natural wood with the versatility of fabric blinds. Pinoleum blinds are available in various colours and natural designs, making them a popular choice for homeowners looking for a stylish and eco-friendly window treatment.

The primary material, pinoleum, is a fabric made by weaving thin strips of wood or wood-like fibres together. This weaving technique creates a lightweight, flexible, and durable fabric that can be easily moulded into various shapes and sizes for window blinds.

One of the main appeals of pinoleum blinds is the range of designs and colours available. With the use of various wood types, treatments, and stains, pinoleum blinds can be crafted in numerous shades, catering to different preferences and interior styles.

In addition to colour variations, pinoleum blinds also come in different patterns and designs that enhance their natural charm. These designs often showcase the beauty of woven wood and the intricate patterns created by the weaving process.

When it comes to quality, pinoleum blinds are typically made from high-grade, responsibly sourced wood like basswood. Basswood is a lightweight and stable material, making it an ideal choice for crafting pinoleum blinds. The wood is also resistant to warping and splitting, ensuring that the blinds maintain their shape and function well over time.

Our pinoleum blinds can be motorised, with Somfy motors offering the ultimate in automation and ease of use with a remote control.

Alternatively, our manual pinoleum blinds can be operated manually with a cord lock system.

Whether automated or manual, all our pinoleum blinds are expertly made-to-measure, ensuring a perfect fit for your windows.

Pinoleum blinds can be particularly well-suited for conservatories, orangeries, and timber-framed conservatories, as they provide an attractive and practical solution for reducing sun glare and excessive heat. Conservatory-specific adaptations include:

  • Roof blinds: Pinoleum blinds can be made to measure for conservatory roofs, ensuring optimal shading and temperature control.
  • Gable blinds: Customised gable-end blinds can be designed to fit even the most complex conservatory shapes and roof pitches.


For further heat and light protection for your conservatory then our specialist conservatory blinds, pleated roof blinds, perfect fit blinds and roof lantern blinds are perfect for rooms such as conservatories, orangeries with roof lanterns that are prone to heat loss and retention.

Benefits of Pinoleum Blinds

Light and Glare Management

One of the primary benefits of Pinoleum blinds is their excellent light and glare management. The unique construction of these blinds, using woven fabric and thin strips of wood, allows them to create a dappled light effect. This provides a comfortable level of natural light while reducing glare, enhancing the overall ambience in any room.

Pinoleum blinds also offer great energy efficiency and comfort. The solar reflective lining is available as an option, which can help to improve insulation and maintain an ideal room temperature. This lining adds an extra layer of protection, keeping the room cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, thus contributing to overall temperature control.

Other excellent energy efficient and heat reflecting blinds include our plantation shutters, pleated blinds, roof lantern blinds, bifold door blinds and Intu blinds.


Several factors influence the price of Pinoleum blinds, including materials, size, design, and customisation options. High-quality wood, bespoke designs and additional features like motorisation or UV protective coating will increase the cost. Contact us at Winchester Blinds and Shutters for a free no obligation quotation.

To maintain Pinoleum blinds, regularly dust them with a soft cloth/brush or gently vacuum with an upholstery attachment. For stubborn stains or dirt, dampen a cloth with warm water and a mild detergent, and clean the affected areas gently. Avoid soaking the wood and ensure thorough drying to prevent warping or discolouration. Excessive abrasion to your blinds may also invalidate any warrantees.

Pinoleum blinds provide a range of benefits for a conservatory, such as enhancing aesthetics, controlling light, and offering privacy. The natural wood woven design adds a touch of elegance and charm to any space. Adjustable light filtering capabilities ensure optimal glare protection and visual comfort.

Yes, Pinoleum roof blinds can contribute to temperature regulation in glass extensions. By adding insulating, reflective backing to your pinoleum blinds, they can further block sunlight, and reduce heat build-up in the summer, keeping the space cooler. Conversely, they help insulate rooms during winter by trapping heat. This thermal efficiency can translate to energy savings and increased comfort.

Pinoleum blinds tend to be more expensive than basic fabric or metal blinds but less costly than high-end wooden plantation shutters. However, the exact cost comparison depends on the materials, size, design, and additional features of the blinds.
