Faux Wood Or Natural Wood Blinds For Your Home?
Before working with a window blind, shade, and shutter company, it's a good idea to do your own research. If you can narrow down some of the options you're considering for window treatments, it can make the consultation and selection process feel less overwhelming.
One of the most common decisions homeowners struggle with is selecting between natural wood or faux wood blinds. While we're sure you'll be with whatever you choose from our menu of selections, we want you to feel confident about the decision-making process.
What's Right For Your Windows?
Should you pick real wood or faux wood blinds for your home? Ultimately, it's entirely up to you and your family, but some of the points to ponder that can help are:
- Cost - While natural wood is worth the extra cost, it's important to realize a higher price tag is associated with real wood elements. In return for a higher investment, you receive custom wood blinds that are truly one-of-a-kind down to each slat used, and real wood increases the value of your home.
- Appearance - Faux wood has come a long way, so the appearance of imitation wood grains sometimes fools even industry pros. Although natural wood adds a warmth that's difficult to duplicate, our high-quality faux wood options come as close to the real thing as you can find.
- Humidity - Faux wood is the better choice for any rooms that are damp or humid. Real wood will warp and rot, making it unsuitable for spaces like the kitchen or bathroom. Some homeowners use both types of blinds in their homes, putting faux wood in places that have plumbing.
Keep in mind that PVC-coated blinds are heavier than natural wood. If you're covering a larger window, it's a good idea to split a sizeable faux wood set into two sets to cover the window without the additional weight.
