ABOUT FAUX WOOD BLINDS
Faux wood blinds are made up of horizontal slats, which may vary in width from 1 inch to 3 inches. The slats are suspended on cords or tapes, and their angle may be adjusted with a string pull. Motorized options are available. Faux wood blinds provide a wide range of privacy settings and degrees of shade.
Wood blinds are available in a wide variety of finishes and colors, including several wood effects ranging from light woods to dark woods such as Wenge. They are recommended for use in places, such as kitchens, which are exposed to high levels of moisture and humidity. They are more resistant to fading and cracking than natural wood blinds.
