Here's a few pointers when it comes to deciding between wood blinds or faux wood blinds. Wood blinds are best if you plan on lifting the blinds frequently because the wood is lighter than the faux wood and that means you are putting less stress on the lifting mechanisms. Wood blinds are also a better choice for large windows because they weigh less than faux wood blinds.
Additionally, wood blinds come in a larger variety of paint and stained colors, so you would have more options when choosing the right color blind for your space. Wood blinds also have the advantage of having natural imperfections that make the product look truly unique and special.
You may want to choose faux wood blinds if your windows are exposed to moisture, like in a bathroom space, as faux wood blinds are less resistant to warping. Faux wood blinds also stand up better to routine cleaning.
Faux wood blinds are also more durable than wood blinds, and are less expensive than wood blinds, so if a tighter budget is a factor, faux blinds may be the right choice for you.
