Benefits of Faux Wood Blinds

When people think of window coverings, they often think of curtains and boring, ugly blinds. But there are more options than you may think! Perhaps you love the look of wood blinds but not the price tag so much. Did you know you can enjoy the look of real wood for less? Consider the benefits of faux wood blinds!

Affordable Yet Beautiful

You may be leaning toward faux wood for a few different reasons, but the chance to enjoy beautiful new blinds for less is probably the biggest draw! This economical choice provides the appearance of wood blinds without the high cost.

You should be aware that some retailers sell a foam product that warps and yellows over time. Natural wood blinds also suffer from this drawback when exposed to direct sunlight. To avoid this unpleasant outcome, make sure you purchase faux wood blinds rated with 100 percent UV protection for withstanding direct sunlight and heat for years to come.


Whether you plan to install blinds on narrow double-hung windows, wide slider windows or swinging French doors, faux wood blinds are a good choice. Just realize that faux wood is heavier than the real thing, so this material may not be an option on very large windows. Due to the added weight, you may also need a professional to install your blinds for you.

Durable and Easy to Maintain

Constructed from the highest quality synthetic materials, faux wood blinds are made to last. Look for blinds with good warranties that support their quality craftsmanship. Homeowners often select faux wood for bathroom windows because this material resists warping in high moisture environments better than real wood. An anti-static feature also helps prevent excessive dust from collecting on the blinds, reducing the time you need to spend with that feather duster.
