How To Decide Between Wood Or Faux Wood Blinds

Wood vs faux blinds

As a homeowner, you have a lot of decisions to make. Even narrowing down your selection from the variety of window treatment options to just window blinds is a big step. Now, the choice comes down to wood or faux wood, and you can't seem to make the choice.

Which Window Blinds Are Right For Your Home?

It doesn't seem like a big deal until you're the one trying to make the decision - wood or faux bois for your window blinds? Before you start to stress bout it, here are some key pointers to consider:

  • Real wood blinds are more expensive, but since they increase the value of your home, they're considered a wise investment.
  • Faux wood blinds work in spaces that real wood can't handle - like kitchens or bathrooms. Composite alternatives are moisture-resistant and won't warp or rot like natural wood.
  • Blinds, in general, can help make your windows and home more energy-efficient, but real wood does a better job of acting as a natural insulator.
  • If you want something that requires less maintenance, choose faux blinds because natural wood requires deep cleaning and polishing to prevent damage.
  • Faux wood still requires cleaning, but not as often and without the need for polishing.
  • Only real wood is one-of-a-kind, meaning each slat has unique qualities from the wood grain. Quality faux wood mimics the look well but can't replicate the uniqueness of each piece.
