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.
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.
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.
