When considering window treatments, homeowners who want wood blinds are faced with a choice - should they spend a little extra on authentic wood blinds or save money by hanging faux blinds?

DoItYourself.com has released a number of reasons that faux wood blinds may be a good choice for a home. One of the primary reasons is that they are more resistant to moisture, which can cause real wood to warp or swell, making finish wear off the wood and exposing it to environmental hazards.

Since they are also water resistant, the news source claims that faux wood blinds are much easier to clean, as they just require a quick wipe. This high durability also makes them have a longer lifetime than other materials treatments.

Faux wood blinds are also more environmentally friendly, since they reduce the number of trees which are cut down for different wood products. And, since they aren't wood, they are available in different varieties and colors.

Homeowners who are still debating should consider that nothing can truly imitate the warm, natural feel of authentic wood blinds. If one is creating an environment of wooden furniture, authentic wood blinds can complement the theme more than faux blinds.
