Window treatments such as wood blinds can really transform the look of your home. When deciding between wood blinds and faux wood blinds, you need to consider what room you’re decorating and how large the windows are and consider your budget and ideal finish for the room.

The difference between the two is the material they are made out of. Wood blinds are made out of wood and come in a variety of stains and paints to enrich the existing decor in your room. Wood blinds are better for large windows because they are lighter in weight than faux wood. Since wood can warp or crack, they are not recommended for high humidity areas like a bathroom or kitchen, whereas Faux wood are perfect for this room type.

Faux Wood Blinds are made out of a composite PVC. They are also available in a variety of colors, both paints, and faux-stains. Stain looks faux wood blinds will have a realistic printed image of the wood grain. Both paint and stained faux wood blinds are available with an embossed texture that adds to the real wood look.

The PVC coating on Faux Wood Blinds makes them perfect for high humidity areas like a bathroom and can withstand light splashing. The material is heavier than wood blinds, so if you have wide windows it’s better to split them into multiple blinds on one headrail.

Our Wood blinds are available both with and without decorative cloth tapes.
