Faux Wood Blinds

Exceptionally Durable Rotating Horizontal Slats and the Most Affordable Blind in the Lineup...

What Makes FAUX WOOD BLINDS great

Faux wood blinds can be a superb choice when compared to real wood blinds. They are one of the most affordable choices in the vast selection of window coverings. Faux wood blinds are typically made of vinyl or some combination of wood composites. This makes them quite durable and suitable for rooms with more sunlight or moisture.

Faux wood blinds are easy to clean with a feather duster, vacuum, and not to worry about spills or splashes because they can be wiped down with a damp cloth and a bucket of warm, soapy water. Do not use any chemicals on the product because it may wear away its finish.

Faux wood blinds tend to collect dust more frequently due to the horizontal design. White is the most common colour for faux wood blinds, but they do come in a great selection of modern grey colours as well as wood grain finishes. Many of the wood grain finishes look almost as good as real wood blinds but do lack the grain and colour variations prevalent in natural wood.

Those who prefer a completely natural look should select a real wood blind instead. Faux wood blinds have a great amount of light control because the slats can rotate to allow for as much or little light into the room. They can also provide a view-through without having to be fuly raised, although they can raise all the way up to allow for a full, wide open view of the window. When raised, they do stack up at the top of the window, so the taller the window the larger the stack at the top. Faux wood blinds tend to be heavier than other window treatments so be careful of the larger windows they can be difficult to raise and lower.

Faux wood blinds are a great choice for those who prefer to tilt rather than raise or lower. The most common size is a 2″ slat but they are also available in a larger 2 1/2″ slat size. A standard cordlock system is the most common control system that allows you pull the cord and lock it in place. As you pull the blind up the cord does get longer so having a cord cleat to tie up the extra cord is a good idea. A more child safe option would be a cordless system or even a motorized control. For visual appeal, all faux wood blinds should come with a matching valance option to cover the metal headrail. For a traditional look, decorative cord tapes can be used to cover the vertical cords or “ladders” used to string the blind together.

Some manufacturers offer a Routeless, LightsOut or de-Light feature which eliminates cord holes and reduces light leakage, blocking 50% more light than a traditional faux wood blind construction.
