Faux wood blinds combine the attractiveness of real wood with the durability, ease of cleaning and weather resistance of man made materials.  Faux wood blinds, which are also called imitation wood and sometimes fake wood, are avalaible with PVC vinyl slats or composite wood.  Faux wood blinds are a great choice for humid environments, harsh direct sun or high traffic rooms.  Shop online and save with discount prices, free shipping and samples and a low price guarantee.  Blindsgalore offers a great selection from all the major brands as well as our own value-priced signature brand. 

Faux wood blinds are often chosen for their increased durability or lower cost, in contrast to their natural material counterparts.  In fact, they can easily be blended in a home, where faux woods are used in humid rooms or in areas that will require more frequent cleaning like a kitchen.  In addition to these highly utilitarian characteristics, faux woods are also available in a wide variety of stains and painted colors.

Slat sizes

Available in 2 inch or 2 – 1/2 inch wide slats.  The difference in slat size is somewhat personal taste.  Functionally, larger slats provide slightly better ‘view through’ and look more appropriately scaled on larger windows than smaller slats.

Cloth tapes

Faux wood blinds normally have cords that control the tilt and lift.  If you prefer, these cords can be replaced with cloth tapes in a variety of colors and styles.  Cloth tapes can match, complement or provide contrast to the color of the blinds themselves, and offer a traditional look.  Note: Routeless and cloth tapes are not available together, though cloth tapes also improve privacy and light control over standard cords, similar to the routeless option.  With either option, you’ll have maximum light control and privacy.

Routeless slats

Similar to other premium blinds, quality, custom-made faux wood blinds offer the same features, like routeless slats.  Routeless means that the slats are manufactured without the normal slots or holes.  By omitting these slots, the small points of light that normally come through are blocked, making the blinds more effective at blocking all light and creating privacy.  Also, the blinds are stronger without the slots!  Slats ordered with the routeless option can also be removed entirely for cleaning!  (Only recommended for ‘regular’ installations where the blinds are inside the window opening.)

Wood Blinds, Wooden Blinds, Discount Wood Blinds

The style that a wood blind contributes to your home is driven by several elements: the color of the slats, slat size, valance, routeless slat design, cord versus tape support, and of course, your room.
