A Look at Faux Wood Blinds -

by: Jimmy Sturo
For those who want the warmth of wood, but are concerned with wood damage, faux-wood blinds may b e the answer. They are made of artificial materials but are designed to look just like real wood blinds. They are much less expensive than wood blinds. Faux-wood blinds are designed to be used in rooms with high levels of humidity like bathrooms and kitchens. They donít tend to warp unlike blinds made of real wood and are stain resistant.

Faux-wood blinds can be made of either PVC or composite wood. PVC faux blinds are made of a vinyl polymer, whereas composite wood blinds contain both hardwood and a polymer base. They are lighter than PVC blinds. The composite wood blinds cost slightly higher than the PVC but they offer more value with their special 3-inch valances and the special trapezoid bottom rails that allow the slats to close tightly. Faux-wood blinds come in a wide range of colors and shades, some looking exactly like real wood. They can be custom designed as per different requirements like light control, sleek look, and the viewable area between the slats.

The polyvinyl material used to make faux-wood blinds is very durable and strong. It is simple to clean and does not warp, crack, or fade easily. The blinds made from this material can be covered with UV inhibitors to protect them from excessive exposure to the sun. This covering makes the blinds last longer--even for a lifetime. Faux-wood blinds can also resist extreme temperatures like heat and cold and are suitable for any room in the house.

Faux-wood blinds are also available in different forms and in different sizes. They can be mini or micro, vertical or horizontal, 2-inch valance or 3-inch valance. They can also be provided with other attachments and options like tilt wants, locking pull rods, fabric tapes, cord-want tilt and motorization, and light-blocking properties. Faux-wood blinds are thus replacing all the traditional kinds of blinds but are still providing the same kind of look that traditional wood blinds offer.
