Understanding the benefits and uses of faux wood blinds

Custom Window Coverings for Humid Climates, Direct Sun & High Traffic Areas

Faux wood blinds, also known as imitation wood blinds or fake wood blinds, combine the attractiveness of real wood with the durability, ease of cleaning, and moisture resistance of synthetic materials. More warp resistant than ever before and with ultra-high UV ratings, our faux wood blinds are a great choice for humid environments, harsh direct sun windows, or high traffic rooms such as playrooms, kid’s rooms or family rooms.

Select the Faux Wood Blind Size to Suit Your Needs

Blindster offers a variety of faux wood blind styles, sizes and color options to suit most window covering needs. We carry 1″, 2″, and 2 1/2″ slat horizontal blinds that can be customized to your liking with a variety of options and colors depending on style you choose. The difference in window covering slat size is somewhat personal taste. Functionally, a larger slat size offers a wider, shutter-style view to the outside when open.

Depending on your window blind selection, widths range from 7 to 108 inches; heights vary from 9 to 96 inches. Color options range from 3 for our 2″ Super Value Faux Wood Blinds to 15 for our 2″ Premium Faux Wood Blind.

Decorative Options for Faux Wood Blinds offer Light Control & Privacy

The following options on our Premium Faux Wood Blinds increase light control and privacy:

Cloth Tapes: Cloth tapes are a popular decorative option available on horizontal blinds. Faux wood blinds with cloth tapes replace the standard braided cord ladders with decorative tape available in a variety of colors. Cloth tapes also increase privacy and light control by covering the route holes.

Routeless Slats: Routless slats are an option offered on horizontal blinds where the slats have no route holes. Instead the ladder cords are held in place by small notches at the back of the slat. This provides additional light control and privacy for your custom window covering.

Wood vs Faux Wood Blinds – Weigh Your Options

Faux wood blinds have the look of real wood but cost less than traditional wood blinds. Unlike wood, these blinds do not warp or crack with changes in moisture and are therefore recommended for areas or rooms with high levels of humidity and moisture – particularly where water collects. Keep in mind that discount faux wood blinds come in a variety of color selections reserved for traditional wood blinds. Learn more about faux wood by reading Real Wood vs Faux Wood Blinds.
