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.
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.
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.
