It is also less susceptible to fading and warping from sun and heat. And of course, while faux wood does a remarkable job of mimicking real wood, it just is not as attractive. The one exception to the rule is if you are installing your blinds in rooms with high humidity levels, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Real wood can warp in these environments, while faux wood made from a plastic polymer would not have the same problem.
Wood immediately evokes a warm, welcoming, permanent feel in any room. Heavy draperies are quickly being replaced by simple earthy wood blinds mounted inside the window frame. It is a minimalistic but super stylish look that works with lots of different decorating styles.
There are many things to consider when choosing the right style of blinds for you and your home, starting with slat size. 1 and 2 inch slats are the most common, though larger slatted models provide more of a shutter effect and let in optimal light. 1 inch slats are best for French doors and small windows, while 2 inch slats look great just about anywhere. Other options to consider are vertical slats, woven wood models (think bamboo shades), and models made of faux wood rather than real wood.
