Faux wood blinds as the name implies are manufactured from man-made materials and look very similar to real wood blinds. In some cases, it is very difficult to tell the difference between faux wood and real wood blinds. The combination of materials used provide tensile strength, opaqueness, volume, color, and waterproofing. The blinds are very durable and provide total privacy, partial light, or a full view through the entire window. The faux wood blinds are less expensive than real wood blinds because the cost of materials are less, and there is less waste in the manufacturing process. Faux wood blinds are the single most popular window covering in the market.
Real wood blinds as the name indicates are made from basswood or other hardwoods. The process begins with the harvesting of the trees, primarily in the northeast. The wood is cut, kiln-dried, sanded, stained or painted, and then finishes are applied. When the wood is received at the assembly factory, they are in bundles of various lengths. In the Indy area, the stained wood of blinds varies in color based on the shipment. Dealing with the variety of lengths and dye lots, there is an increase in costs and waste. In addition, wood is more expensive than faux wood materials. However, wood blinds are lighter and are beautiful, especially with the variety in the stain choices.
Blinds and shades are both window coverings that serve the same basic function of covering a window for purposes of privacy, light control, or decoration. However, they differ significantly in operation, price, style, and other features.
When choosing between blinds or shades, there is one important question you should ask yourself: How do I want to control privacy and block light? Blinds have slats which can be tilted for adjustable light control. Shades are made with a solid piece of fabric, so they only have two options – open or closed. However, if you choose a light filtering fabric, you’ll be able to let in natural light while keeping your window covered for complete privacy.
