The Ultimate 2 1/2" Faux Wood Blinds from Norman offers much more privacy than the average faux wood blind when closed, at a slat size that keeps a better view outside when open. The non-slip, patented SmartPrivacy slats create perfect privacy due to tighter closure than most blinds. This is due to SmartPrivacy's design, giving the slats smaller holes, which are concealed when the blinds are closed. Comes standard with a 3" designer valance and invisible clips.

Install Time: 7-10 minutes

We Recommend:

  • The trapezoid bottom rail plus the SmartPrivacy slats mean better closure, making this blind perfect for rooms that require privacy.
  • Two return sizes are included to accommodate all installation situations, or choose a straight cut valance for a flush mount.
  • Need it fast? This product has a shorter production time than most faux wood blinds.


  • Heavier than wood blinds, this product is not recommended for large windows if you plan to raise and lower these blinds frequently.
  • The larger slat size of these blinds means you will not have a flush mount if your window frame is shallow.
  • Note: Due to the fast production time on this product, order changes are not accepted.

Blinds A BreezeI've placed three separate orders for three separate rooms for the Norman: Ultimate 2 1/2 inch Faux Wood blinds from blinds.com and am very very satisfied with ease of website navigation and order specificity, color choices, prompt fabrication times and amazing shipment tracking features. You'll know what you're getting and when you'll get it at every step of the way. I admit that at first I was hesitant I'd get the measurements right. But they were perfectly cut each time. You DO need to pay attention to your specific window dimensions and NOT assume they are all exactly the same even if they are very similar. Example: all those I did recently were generally 71 x 71 squares. But one was actually closer to 70 7/8 for both L & H. You do need to measure your windows at three places at both the length (i.e., width) and the height to make sure. While it took me a small learning curve to put up the first set of blinds, the next two were so easy I hardly needed to refer to the instructions any longer. Have your pencil, metal ruler, screwdriver (or preferably a hand held electirc drill) ready to go and you'll be finished before you can say blinds.com!July 28, 2014
Amazing ResultsI had heared ads on the radio for months For Blinds.com. When it was time to purchase blinds I first went to the local Big Box, and discovered my windows were not the off the shelf size. Special order pricing was just too high. and there were no color options other than white. After doing a request for color samples and seeing the price for custom size blinds at Blinds.com. The choice to order from you was a no brainer. Exceptional quality, Faster than expected delivery, Your team is amazing. I had 9 windows all at different widths and they all fit like a glove. Besides you saved me a boat load of money. The color samples you shipped free made choosing a snap. love the blinds and the quality. The neighbors are already talking.May 6, 2013
The BESTThe Ultimate 2 1/2 Faux Wood Blinds are everything I wished they would be and MORE! They create a beautiful elegance in our kitchen and bedroom windows. The blinds are equipped with the Smart Privacy Slats feature that keeps the blind slats from moving and provides tighter closure than any other faux wood blinds on the market. The tight closure provides more energy savings, privacy and better light control. So when it's the middle of the day and my son needs to go down for a nap I can easily close the blinds and create a darkened room for his comfort.One of my favorite features of the Faux Wood Blinds are that all of them come with a new cord release device which is designed to breakaway when pulled apart. This feature makes the blinds a safer option for homes with children. I love them and I highly recommend them!July 30, 2013
BlindsHello Customer Service:Overall I am happy with my blinds there was and is a problem with both blinds, namely when I raise or lower them half way up or down, they have what I describe as a belly/bow in the middle. I think that the pull strings are not adjusted properly.SincerelyBillFebruary 27, 2012
Beautiful blinds, excellent priceThis is probably the best service to get blinds from. I ordered six windows with custom blinds, 2.5" faux wood ones. They were easy to install and the most difficult part was getting screws through metal in my window frames which has nothing to do with the product. The price is excellent and I love the sales going on. The price is well worth any other difficulties you might have. Shipping was fast too. I got my blinds in a little over a week. The neighbors noticed the new blinds too!October 9, 2012
Wonderful!I love these blinds! They arrived quickly, in individual boxes. My father and brother hung these in every room in my new house in about 2 hrs. I showed my father the video on Blinds.com and he was amazed at how easy it was to hang these. We also ordered the color samples before we ordered the blinds so that they would match our trim and these match perfectly! The 2 1/2 inch width looks really nice too.August 6, 2013
Wow!!!?Wonderful! Classy! Fast shipping and easy install!December 15, 2014
Good overall experiencePurchased 16 blinds for our new home- although the measurement process is tedious, it pays off. Everything fit almost perfectly and I was very surprised how quickly the blinds came in. Easy to install and price point is good too compared to local options. My one issue is the valance returns are not very well described on the website. Due to the depth I ended up installing my blinds, I had to modify each valance return so they looked finished. Its a minor detail but they look a lot better with returns on them. Overall very pleased and the fit is incredible for something you order online.December 31, 2014
Great blinds, great price, great look!These blinds are so beautiful. We just bought a new home and were nervous about buying blinds online. Blinds.com offered free samples which helped tremendously. After the quick and easy install, we now have gorgeous blinds for a fraction of the cost.We purchased the 2 1/2" faux wood blinds in white with added privacy (no holes in the slats). We also selected the inside mount.August 13, 2013
Beautiful Great Quality BlindsThese blinds exceeded my expectations. Very high quality at a very reasonable price.December 23, 2014
Beautiful!Just got my blinds installed and they look beautiful! I didn't do the installation, but I probably could have. They seemed to go up pretty fast. Wow, what a difference they make in my kitchen and dining area. Now, I'm ordering for my other rooms. I really love the valance that comes with the blinds.March 13, 2014
Love My New Blinds!Thanks to Glen Beck for recommending Blinds.com. It was easy ordering online and the blinds look great!November 7, 2014
Overall nice, but let's light thru top/bottomNice look and they do block MOST of the light. However, at the top and bottom of each blind (I just installed 17 of them) the light comes through a lot more than the middle. Overall I'm happy with it, but hope they can tweek the next generation of this blind so the very top and bottom 2-3 slats close as tightly as the middle.August 4, 2014
Slats out of level, and other issuesI ordered one set for a small bathroom window. Ordering and shipping were fine. Price was very good, but now I see why this product was inexpensive.These blinds arrived with the slats visibly out of level. I finally had to attach shims (I cut some old twist-ties) to the tilt cords in order to get the low side even close to level.I can fuss with them, but not everyone is going to want to open them up and make time-consuming adjustments. This seems like an easily-detected quality control issue.One slat arrived with a dent on the edge, marring the finish. Fortunately it was on the back edge, and is generally hidden. Again, QA should have caught this.Box contained an unusually high amount of dust and debris from shaping the valence pieces. A little compressed air before boxing would have helped quite a bit.Now that they are installed, they look pretty good. Nobody will notice the dinged edge, and they are pretty close to level. Fitment is good, and the valence was easy to attach.I was planning to order the Blinds.com brand genuine wood blinds, so I hope the build quality exceeds that of the Normans. I'll be much more picky about those.Thanks for reading.January 17, 2013
Great Quality but beware w/ corner windows!I was very pleased with my purchase. We used these window treatments in white throughout the majority of the house. They really finish off all the rooms so well. The header dresses up the windows so nicely, we ended up returning the curtains we bought to add extra oomph...didn't need them!My one suggestion is to make sure your corner windows aren't touching or near touching where one wall meets the other. I completely forgot about that when I ordered and this caused a problem for the outside headers. We ended up having to cut off the corners on one side of each header and caulk the two sides together. You can't notice at all but if you ran into this problem with any color blinds other than white, you'd be in a world of hurt. The corners meeting up also caused an issue with the brackets. We had to cut one of the brackets and drill the top of the blind into the mount to prevent the blinds from falling out of the bracket. Thankfully, my dad is Mr. Fix-it and he was able to fix all these problems. But, if your windows meet at corners, take this into advisement before you order these treatments!April 2, 2013
Quality purchaseI have only had the blinds for one month but so far - very pleased. They were shipped in durable but minimal packaging, so not a lot to get rid of which I appreciate. Easy installation and they look great!March 18, 2015
Excellent Service!I had shopped at four different sites for blinds, since I have two windows with odd sizes. None of the sites offered the 84" x 74" size I needed, except Blinds.com. Their prices were also very comparable to the big-box stores.I must admit that I was skeptical as I ordered 9 different sizes on a Sunday afternoon, and the site said 9 days for delivery. I figured the lead time would be correct, but since they claim free replacements if I measure wrong, something will probably not arrive correctly.The following Thursday, 4 days after ordering, all 9 boxes were delivered. We installed them that weekend, and all 9 were perfectly sized! I was amazed!The valances included are perfect for covering the hardware underneath, and I will not need fabric valances for these blinds. They look clean and modern, and are very sturdy. Even the 84" x 74" is heavy to raise, but doesn't sag when doing so.I am very happy with Blinds.com. I have 3 more windows to cover, and, of course, will be ordering through Blinds.com for those too. I have already recommended Blinds.com to several people. Great Job!March 21, 2012
Great ExperienceWonderful customer support, even ordered on a Sunday and was helped to find the best deal. The blinds were exactly the measurements and type we wanted and needed. Installation of 10 blinds took less than 2 hours. Fantastic!March 11, 2015
The look is amazing but the quality is even betterI had nine unusual windows in one room. I used these blinds through a combination of covering individual windows and combining windows (some individual blinds were wider than 90"). When you cover windows that are close to each other, you need a consistent appearance. I was concerned because I would be hangin these myself. These blinds are amazing! By no means am I an expert, but I hung these blinds so easily and the look is so consistent. I thought I would be writing about the appearance, which is better than I expected ( I get LOADS of compliments), but I have to write about the quality and ease of hanging these blinds. I just cant express how satisfied I am with my entire experience.The kindess, patience, and help of the salesman during purchase. the timely arrival of the blinds, the ease of mounting them,and the look combines for ther perfect experience.Thank you blinds.com!September 2, 2013
Overall: Excellent Experience!I was initially confused with how to measure and what type of blinds to get for my house. However, after calling their customer service line, I was patiently and expertly helped. The operator explained exactly how to get the correct measurements and gave very good advice on the color and type of blinds that would work best for my house. Upon receiving the blinds, which were shipped promptly, I again called their customer service department for installation help. The person I talked to allowed me to put them on speaker-phone and took the time to explain how to install the blinds. I highly recommend using their services because the blinds are top quality, customer service is excellent, and it would be hard to find better prices.December 6, 2012
