A Look at Faux Wood
|For those who
want the warmth of wood, but are concerned with wood damage,
faux-wood blinds may b e the answer. They are made of artificial
materials but are designed to look just like real wood blinds.
They are much less expensive than wood blinds. Faux-wood blinds
are designed to be used in rooms with high levels of humidity
like bathrooms and kitchens. They don’t tend to warp unlike
blinds made of real wood and are stain resistant.
Faux-wood blinds can be made of either PVC or composite wood. PVC faux
blinds are made of a vinyl polymer, whereas composite wood
blinds contain both hardwood and a polymer base. They are
lighter than PVC blinds. The composite wood blinds cost slightly
higher than the PVC but they offer more value with their special
3-inch valances and the special trapezoid bottom rails that
allow the slats to close tightly. Faux-wood blinds come in a
wide range of colors and shades, some looking exactly like real
wood. They can be custom designed as per different requirements
like light control, sleek look, and the viewable area between
The polyvinyl material used to make faux-wood blinds is very durable and
strong. It is simple to clean and does not warp, crack, or fade
easily. The blinds made from this material can be covered with
UV inhibitors to protect them from excessive exposure to the
sun. This covering makes the blinds last longer--even for a
lifetime. Faux-wood blinds can also resist extreme temperatures
like heat and cold and are suitable for any room in the house.
Faux-wood blinds are also available in different forms and in different
sizes. They can be mini or micro, vertical or horizontal, 2-inch
valance or 3-inch valance. They can also be provided with other
attachments and options like tilt wants, locking pull rods,
fabric tapes, cord-want tilt and motorization, and
light-blocking properties. Faux-wood blinds are thus replacing
all the traditional kinds of blinds but are still providing the
same kind of look that traditional wood blinds offer.
