Faux wood blinds are becoming more popular with blinds buyers and now match the sales of real wood blinds here at Just Blinds, Cannock.
Although in many cases the word ‘faux’ can imply a reduction of quality, (like faux leather) when it comes to blinds the faux wood venetian blinds actually outscore the real wood venetian blinds in a number of ways. Let us explain.
The faux wood blinds are actually made of a specifically developed PVC material that brings a number of advantages verses the more traditional wood venetian blinds.
- Faux wood materials are waterproof. This makes them easier to clean. These blinds can be wiped with a damp cloth with no danger of damage to the paint like a wooden blind.
- Faux wood blinds are not effected by moisture. This makes them perfect for high moisture areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.
- Increased range of colours and styles. The range of faux wood colours is far greater than the traditional wooden blinds.
- Increased durability. Traditional wood blinds can splinter and crack if handled without care. Once the blinds start to crack and splinter then the structure is weakened. In comparison, the faux wood blinds slats are able to bend, and flex rather than crack. Perfect for homes with pets, children and clumsy adults!
PVC faux blinds provide many advantages as detailed above. However, they do have their limitations. Faux wood blinds cannot be fitted in places that may subject the blinds to high heat, such as conservatories. Excessive heat can cause the slats to twist. This problem is exacerbated in darker colours due to heat absorption. Due to the reduced rigidity of faux wood blinds, additional supports or ‘ladders’ may be required for faux wood blinds.
