Faux Wood Blinds Materials

Faux Wood blinds, as the name suggests, is not made out of real wood. Instead they are created using a combination of PVC and wood particles, which give the blinds added benefits unavailable with real wood. Faux Wood blinds are often called by different names, such as, vinyl blinds, fake wood blinds, and plastic wood blinds. These names all refer to blinds made out of a durable vinyl material (for example: PVC). This vinyl material is also treated with a UV coating that keeps the material of the blinds from fading over time.

Faux Wood Blinds Features

  • Unlike real wood, Faux Wood blinds are water-resistant. This means that they can be used in areas of the house where water may affect them (i.e. Bathroom, Kitchen) without warping over time.
  • Another aspect of being water-resistant is that Faux Wood blinds are easy to clean. They can be wiped down with a simple wet rag, without the worry of ruining the product.
  • The materials that go into creating the Faux Wood makes the blinds less susceptible to both fading and chipping, meaning that they will still look great after long periods of time.

Faux Wood Blinds Upgrades

  • Routless Ladders omits the traditional hole and cords run through the middle of the blinds, instead routing through a small slit in the back of each slat. This style provides more privacy to users, while also blocking more ambient light.
  • Decorative Fabrics and Tapes are an easy way to add a more personal touch to the blinds. Fabric ladders replace the normal cord lift ladders, with the added benefit that the fabric then covers the routed holes in each of the blind slats.
  • 2 on 1 Headrail helps to distribute the weight of the blinds when covering a large area. While a single set of Faux Wood blinds would be too heavy, this allows for the blinds to be separated into 2 sets of blinds that are all hung from the same headrail.
  • Faux Wood blinds come with standard crown valances, but can be upgraded to a Cornice Style Valance. This option entails a crown valance that sits outside the window frame and extends to about 1 inch past on each side. It can also be styled to create a cornice look to the crown molding valance.

Things to Consider

Faux Wood blinds are actually heavier than real wood and as such, are not recommended for covering large areas.

Depending upon the Faux Wood product selected there may be limited color options available. As an example, while the Aspen 2” Faux Wood Blinds have thirteen colors to choose from, the Express 2” Cordless Faux Wood Blinds only has two.
