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.
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.
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.
