First, please kindly realize that wood and faux wood blinds are not the best choice for room darkening. Wood and faux wood blinds have lots of router holes to accommodate the cords necessary to tilt and lift your blinds. All these holes will allow for lots of light bleed while slightly reducing privacy. Now to be sure, wood and faux wood blinds do provide decent privacy as someone would have to work at it to see in if your wood or faux blinds are closed, however this level of privacy would be unacceptable to most hotel chains.
So, what can you do to provide a little bit more light control and privacy on your wood or faux wood blind? In short, the answer is either to choose a router-less option or else add tapes to your wood or faux wood blind. The router-less option provides notches at the back of the slats, so there are no holes in the slats and the slats close tighter. Fabric tapes are also an option, and can be matched or contrasted to your blinds. By covering the route holes and the cords that extend down the length of the blind, cloth tapes improve privacy and light control, making them both functional and stylish.
