Wood blinds are beautiful but sometime pricey additions to help make a room more comfortable and natural. Many people often turn to faux wood blinds as alternatives to natural wood blinds. There are many benefits to using faux wood blinds compared to other kinds of blinds or shades and these advantages are valid.
Let’s face it; almost all natural items are pricier than their synthetic counterparts. The same goes for wood window blinds as compared to faux wood blinds. The all natural wood blinds or fabric blinds are almost always more expensive than blinds or shades made from plastic or any other synthetic material when compared with quality in mind. Some faux wood blinds which are made in complete mimicry of real blinds made of wood may be cheaper than some real wood blinds made with substandard materials and workmanship.
Real wood blinds made with high quality materials and workmanship are very expensive which is where faux wood blinds come in. Faux wood blinds can be made to actually look like and feel like real wood blinds with the added bonus of being more sturdy and better at insulation.
The same with most synthetic products, faux wood blinds can be made perfect or almost perfect anyway. Artificial products can be manipulated to present an almost perfect façade that more than just mimics the real thing, it can also exceed it.
Many real wood blinds have limited colors due to reactions of the wood to tinting and staining. Most faux wood blinds have unlimited color schemes and palettes since they can be painted with anything without any regard for their wood grain.
Many real wood blinds can withstand the test of time without batting an eyelash. In reality, the proper care of these is one of the factors that contribute to their longevity. Faux wood blinds can also last as long with the proper care and maintenance.
The materials used in faux wood blinds can actually rival those of real wood and the right way of cleaning them as well as taking care of them can add to this. Most plastics may grow brittle in time which is why choosing the right kind of material for your faux wood blinds is necessary if you have every intention of these lasting a long time.
Choosing between real and synthetic wood products may be easier than some people think the key is to think of quality and have some foresight.
