Can You Tell the Difference Between Faux Wood Blinds and Authentic Ones?
If there’s one thing homeowners just cannot ignore, it’s their home décor. Whether most of us want to admit it or not, we tend to make judgements about people the moment we step into their home. Like it or not, most guests do the same when they come to our home as well.
People appreciate home décor that creates an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation. Interestingly, your window treatments have the ability to pull the design of your house together and are often the one of the first things people notice when they step inside your home.
Wood blinds are commonly used in homes because they create a welcoming and warming atmosphere. They are an effective way to decorate and enhance your windows because they add a nice, clean contemporary touch that compliments any home décor. Their rise in popularity has brought different designs and other materials such as cane, vinyl, and metal. No matter the material or color you prefer for your blinds, they have the ability to create a certain type of atmosphere in your home.
If you tend to prefer wood window blinds, consider purchasing faux wood blinds. You’ll save yourself a lot of money while still achieving the same look that authentic wood blinds are known to provide. Not sure about faux? Manufacturers and designers have gone to great lengths to make faux wood blinds look as realistic as possible, and most wood blinds you see are most likely faux.
Faux blinds are typically made with either a combination of vinyl and hardwood or by vinyl alone. These blinds are a beautiful option to wood blinds because they look like real wood blinds and are great for humid climates and temperatures. The wood “look” is definitely achievable without paying wood prices.
Installing your faux or wood blinds is quite simple and can definitely be done on your own. The main thing you need to consider is whether or not you want your blinds to fit right inside your window or if you want them to fit outside your window. Once you’ve figured this out, make sure you measure the area you would like your blinds to fit in before making your purchase. If the size you’re looking for is not available, most stores are able to cut down larger blinds into your desired size.
