Wood and Faux Wood Blinds

When shopping for window treatments one consideration may be the choice between wood and faux wood blinds. They are both very versatile and can match almost any décor. Additionally both wood and faux wood blinds have a variety of color options. Let’s explore some of the similarities and differences.


Our Work

Faux Wood Blinds

As the name suggests faux wood blinds are not made of real wood. They are made either of a composite wood material or a PVC/vinyl material. Faux wood blinds are a good option for homeowners as they are:

  • Durable and generally will not crack, fade or warp over time.
  • An excellent choice for humid rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms and homes that are located near to the ocean or lakes that constantly have a lot of humidity.
  • A smart choice for high traffic areas where they will be touched and bumped into such as the entry of a home, corridors and rooms where they will be touched by little hands.
  • Easy to clean with a damp cloth and gentle cleaning products

Economical option to getting the “look” and “feel” of real wood

Real Wood or Hardwood Blinds

Real wood blinds are made from North American hardwoods that have been specially selected, treated and kiln dried. They are an excellent choice for homeowners who want to add an extra touch of luxury and elegance to their homes. Real wood blinds are an upscale window treatment option as they are:

    • Unique as each piece of wood has its own grain and texture that cannot be replicated;
    • Able to provide excellent privacy, light control and insulation protecting furniture and artwork from the harmful rays of the sun and keeping homes cool in the summer and warm in the winter;  
    • Durable, long lasting and lightweight;
    • Easy to clean however care must be taken to protect them from harsh cleaning chemicals.
