They are made to measure to fit the exact size of your window and can be the perfect solution for shaped and difficult windows. Their neat louvers offer you a full control over light and privacy; you can control exactly how much light you want in your room while keeping out prying eyes. Most importantly, they are made of wood and wood never goes out of style!

Real or Faux wood?

Wooden Venetian Blinds are available in real and faux wood options. In this article, we will explain the difference between these two options and which one of them is the perfect choice for your home.

Real wooden Blinds have a luxurious and warm look which is why they are your best choice for living and dining rooms. They are very light in weight, which makes them very easy to control and suitable for large windows. Their light weight also plays a role in their durability since less strain is put on their opening and closing mechanism. As they are made of genuine wood, they create an insulating layer that helps keep the outdoor temperatures at bay and protects your furniture from sun fading.

Genuine wood, however, tends to warp in high moisture environments such as in your bathroom and kitchen, which why in these situations faux wood blinds are much more effective and suitable. Faux wood blinds are more resilient as their slats are made of either a wood core coated with high tech polymer (composite) or made entirely of a vinyl/PVC material. They can resist harsh conditions and can be fitted even to your shower window. They are much easier to clean and very durable but they are heavier than real wood blinds, which why they are not ideal for large windows.

Both real and faux wooden blinds are available in a wide selection of colours and finishes, however, real wood blinds are available in a much wider range, which why you might find it more convenient if you are searching for a specific colour to match your window’s trims.
