5 Reasons to Love Faux Wood Blinds

There are just some instances where real wood is not exactly ideal, such as kitchens, bathrooms, or playrooms.

While we absolutely love wood blinds, there are just some instances where real wood is not exactly ideal, such as kitchens, bathrooms, or playrooms. “Real wood can warp in these environments,” writes HomeAdvisor, while Faux Wood Blinds won’t have the same problem. These window treatments are made from 100% vinyl and, because of this, have a “couple of advantages over the real thing,” says designer Becky Dietrich. Here are 5 reasons why we love Faux Wood Blinds:

  1. Moisture proof and able to withstand humidity
  2. UV protected
  3. Lightweight
  4. Easy to clean
  5. Price

Many homeowners choose faux wood blinds over the real thing for a variety of reasons, though price usually tops the list,” adds HomeAdvisor. Here at Next Day Blinds, we advertise our faux wood blinds with one simple tagline – “The look of real wood at a fraction of the price.” For all of those homeowners who want real wood blinds, but simply cannot afford them, faux wood is an excellent cost-effective alternative. “If you find wooden blinds too expensive, you can opt for faux wood instead to keep the costs down,” without sacrificing aesthetics, says blogger Josh Stephenson.

“Cleaning these blinds is also super easy,” adds Sarah-Jean Ballard of The Fashionable Housewife. “Simply wipe them down with a damp cloth or even just a duster and they will look good as new again. If they need a deep clean, then they can actually be washed in the bath tub.” That’s what we like to call a win-win!
