Faux Wood Blinds

Faux wood blinds are an elegant upgrade to classic blinds. This style of window treatment uses narrow panels of faux wood to help control light. The ability to angle the slats lets you get filtered natural light while still maintaining privacy. These blinds are also ideal for blocking glare on your television or darkening a bedroom. In addition to angling the slats open and closed, you can also raise and lower the blinds. This makes it easy to enjoy your view or alter your light levels.

Faux wood is a simple way to upgrade your home's style. The wood-look material is available in multiple finishes. You can find crisp white blinds that look like painted wood or blinds stained to look like natural wood. As you browse faux wooden blinds, carefully consider the colors of your home. Some homes may suit cooler, gray-toned wood while others might look good with rich, warm cherry or mahogany wood. Whatever color you pick, wood blinds are sure to coordinate well with your décor. These are one of the most versatile blind types, so they can complement styles ranging from bohemian to traditional or modern.

Reasons to Love Faux Wood Blinds

There are many benefits to decorating your windows with faux wood treatments.

  • Moisture Resistance: Faux wood stands up to humidity better than real wood. Therefore, faux wood is an ideal option for bathrooms, kitchens, or laundry rooms.
  • Complementary Style: The natural beauty of wood-look blinds works with almost every type of decor.
  • Easy-to-Clean: Faux wood uses a durable PVC material that's incredibly easy to maintain. Soap and warm water can quickly remove most stains and grime.
  • Durable: Faux wood window treatments are one of the most durable options available. They don't warp or fade, and they won't crack or bend.
  • Affordability: Get the look of real wood without having to pay a premium.

Ways to Upgrade Faux Wood Blinds

Basic wood-look blinds are already an excellent window treatment, but you can make them even better. Consider adding these upgrades to your blinds.

  • Cordless Controls: If you want to remove unsightly cords, cordless lifts are a great option. This upgrade lets you raise and lower your blinds with a light touch.
  • Routeless: Routeless blinds use a hidden cord system to hold the slats together. This gets rid of the tiny holes that cords pass through, so you can darken your room better.
  • Rounded Corners: Rounded corners add a softer look to the blinds. Many people pick this style when they want some extra elegance.
  • Matching Toppers: Valances and cornices add more impact to your window treatment. In addition to looking stylish, these fit over the top of the blinds and help to hide any mounting hardware.
  • Cloth Tapes: Cloth tapes run over route holes, so they help to increase light control and privacy. The fabric material also boosts your blinds' visual interest.

Faux Wood Blinds Considerations

Make sure you know all about how these blinds work before you get them. Here are a few things you need to know.

  • If you want the blinds to look as realistic as possible, make sure you select embossed blinds. This will add a wood-grain texture that creates a more natural pattern.
  • Keep in mind that faux wood is actually heavier than genuine wood. This means larger faux wood window treatments can be too heavy to easily install or operate.
  • It's normal for small amounts of light to filter through slats even when closed. If you want more light-blocking, you'll need to get S-curve blinds that interlock together.
  • Blinds with larger slats may not create a flush mount if your window frame is too shallow. For shallow windows, pick blinds with slats of 2 inches or less.
