1. Cost: Faux wood blinds cost significantly less than real wood blinds. Saving money on blinds is always a good thing and can keep your decorating costs to a minimum. Many consumers agree that the faux wood blinds look exactly the same as the wood blinds especially when you choose a painted faux wood. Faux wood blinds can be painted in a variety of color choices.
2. Durability: Faux wood blinds can withstand the abuse of direct sunlight, drastic temperature changes, condensation and humidity. Wood blinds are much more susceptible to warping, chipping and fading. The hardware and installation are also similar to real wood blinds.
Your window treatments will be able to last for many years and look as good as the day you installed them. You can also repaint your faux wood blinds if you wish to update your room's design. Real wood requires diligent maintenance where faux wood is a little more resilient and easier to maintain and clean.
3. Easier to Clean: Because faux wood is OK to get wet you can easily clean them. Real wood blinds can ruin if they are sprayed with water and may warp and look discolored. Depending on the faux wood and the manufacturer’s instructions, you may even be able to spray the blinds off in the shower or water hose and hang them back up to dry. This is by far the easiest way to clean blinds.
4. Choice of Custom Blinds or Factory: As with real wood blinds you also have a choice of having your blinds made custom for your window and style or you may purchase already factory made styles in a variety of sizes. This option allows you to change features such as tilt handle styles or even remote control options for your blinds. The variety of a custom blind is endless.
5. Environmentally Smart: Using faux wood helps save trees. There are many trees that are endangered and those trees are not a renewable resource.
Many people who have purchased both wood and faux wood have said that they cannot tell the difference in their blinds. Faux wood is a great decorating choice for updating your windows.
