Many homeowners choose faux wood blinds/shutters over the real thing for a variety of reasons, though price usually tops the list. Real wood is not cheap, and faux materials can take some of the sting out of the final reckoning. There are some other things to consider when making this choice, however. Real wood is significantly lighter and as a result will last longer.
As mentioned before, the primary reason that wooden blinds have become such popular window treatments is their looks. Their appearance creates a sincere and relaxing feel to any room and they look great from both inside and outside the home. They can be stained almost any color to match your pre-existing trim or furniture or they can be painted to complement your homes general color schemes. And it is all complemented by the comforting look of their strong wood grain and texture. They truly are one of the most beautiful and eye turning products on the market.
Excess moisture is wood worst enemy, so avoid getting wooden blinds wet. To dust them, use a clean, soft cloth, a feather duster or a vacuum brush. To put more life into the wood, use a cleaner made specifically for wood, such as lemon oil. Reading the manufacturer guidelines is more important than ever with wooden blinds, so check to see what products the company recommends before you use anything on them. Run a dryer sheet along each slat to keep dust and grime from sticking.
