Faux Wood Blinds Features
Faux wood blinds offer high-end style for the home without the expensive cost commonly associated with wood blinds. Faux wood blinds can match almost any style of décor on any budget. You can even get a genuine woodgrain appearance with realistic stains and wood texture. Unlike wood blinds, faux wood blinds can withstand temperature changes without cracking, and won’t warp or fade with moisture – making them ideal for the bathroom or kitchen.
Since faux wood blinds are made of PVC material, they are some of the easiest window treatments to clean — just wipe down with soap and water. A variety of slat sizes means you can match your faux wood blinds to any size window. The slats on faux wood blinds can be tilted open and closed for light control and privacy. With slats open, you'll have a great view out.
Faux Wood Blinds Upgrades
Interested in upgrading your faux wood blinds? Consider these optional features for further customization:
- Cordless Lift: This popular feature upgrades your faux wood blinds with a hidden control system, eliminating unsightly cords and enables your wood blinds to be easily raised or lowered.
- Rounded Corners: This small upgrade changes the cut of the slats. Rounded corners add a subtle design touch to your faux wood blinds.
- Routeless: With routeless blinds, your faux wood blinds will not have visible holes for the cords to pass through, which gives you more light blockage and privacy. Please note this upgrade is not ideal for outside mount blinds.
- Cloth Tapes: Choose from different fabric styles to add a stylish flair to your faux wood blinds. You can also use cloth tapes to cover route holes, increasing light blockage and privacy.
- Valances and Cornices: These can accent your faux wood blinds with a stylish topper.
Faux Wood Blinds Considerations
- Faux wood blinds are actually heavier than genuine wood blinds. We don’t recommend faux wood blinds for large windows, as it makes them more difficult to install and operate.
- These blinds lend the appearance of real hardwood blinds, but they’re not quite an exact replica. If style and material are your top priorities, you may want to order samples to see the difference for yourself. Choosing embossed slats will give faux wood blinds a more realistic wood grain appearance. Generally, you can tell the difference between wood and faux wood by their feel, not by their look.
- While faux wood blinds may protect from sunlight and heat in the summer, they won’t be the most energy-efficient window treatment during the winter. If you’re looking to cut costs on energy bills in the winter, check out our selection of insulating window treatments.
