Real wood can warp in these environments, while faux wood made from a plastic polymer would not have the same problem.
Talk to a window treatment retailer or interior designer to get the best advice on which type of wood blinds are best for you. Also, more often than not these blinds are custom made to fit your windows, so its best to have a professional do the measuring and installing for you to ensure you would not be stuck with something that does not fit when they arrive at your doorstep. Finally, keep an eye out for sales when you start shopping around. Wood blinds can be pricey, but most retailers and designers offer regular sales that make a big difference in their final cost.
The benefits do not stop with their good looks, however. Wood blinds are excellent insulators against heat and cold because of their solid wood construction. For the same reason, they provide your home with unrivaled privacy and are excellent protection for your furniture from the harmful rays of the sun. Finally, they are also incredibly lightweight, dramatically reducing the amount of daily wear and tear and extending the life of your blinds.
