MARTINA said : It’s almost impossible to tell the difference between natural wood blinds and faux wood blinds.
Both of them add a touch of class to any room, and they add cohesiveness to your entire room.
Just in case someone asks, here’s a comparison that’s easy to understand and helps clear up why people choose one or the other.
1. Natural Wood Blinds
This variety of blinds are all natural, so they have all the features that draw people to wood furniture and hardwood floors.
Natural wood imparts a unique warmth to any surroundings, the grain alone creating a feeling of being close to nature.
The earthiness and texture of natural wood blinds adds an air of refinement to the room.
We carefully choose the wood for natural wood blinds to guarantee consistent beauty, durability and unique detail.
These lightweight wood varieties not only add beauty to a home, they also provide outstanding insulation against cold and heat, exemplary privacy, and protection against the harmful rays of sunshine that can mar artwork and furniture.
You can also match the stain on natural wood blinds to coordinate with floors, furniture or wall trim and have it sized for oversized windows or windows with non-traditional dimensions.
2.Faux Wood Blinds
Faux is the French word for false, so faux wood blinds simply means the material used is not wood.
However, the quality of most faux wood blinds is so high that it’s hard to tell the difference, especially at arm’s length or more.
Faux wood blinds generally fall into two categories: composite wood materials or PVC/vinyl.
Composite wood blinds have a wood core encased in a combination of PVC, polystyrene, and other first-rate elements to add strength to the blinds.
In most instances, composite wood blinds don’t warp. Some blinds in this category darkened with certain dyes have warped when exposed to intense heat or sunlight, a flaw largely blamed on the darker hue absorbing excessive heat.
Lighter colored blinds in this category have shown no signs of warping.
PVC/Vinyl Faux Wood Blinds
PVC/vinyl blinds are nearly indestructible. Many people first encountered PVC in the 1970s when it largely replaced metal materials for plumbing.
PVC is an ideal material for faux wood blinds based on its superb strength, light weight, economical price, and fire resistance.
The only drawback to PVC faux wood blinds is its tendency to soften and ultimately warp when exposed to temperatures higher than 131 degrees Fahrenheit (55 degrees Celsius).
Only a limited number of US cities regularly experience such high temperatures, so they perform flawlessly in most areas of the country.
They are still a good choice based on their ability to withstand extremely humid climates, their “natural” appearance, and their affordability.
3.Window Blinds Replacement
Many people replace their blinds when they do a major home renovation or just become bored with blinds they chose years before.
More practical reasons for blinds replacement include:
Decomposing, stretched, frayed or otherwise damaged cords that interfere with raising, lowering and slat adjustments
Warped blinds that look unattractive and compromise privacy by creating gaps in the window coverage
The color scheme or decorating theme of a room no longer matches the blinds.
Being busy doesn’t mean you don’t care about keeping your home tidy and inviting.
These guidelines make it easy to keep your blinds in great shape with minimal time and energy.
