Real Wood and Faux wood Blinds are popular and classic window coverings options for your home. Learn more about the benefits and features of both in this short video.

Real Wood and Faux wood Blinds are popular and classic window coverings options for your home and offer excellent light control, but won’t block out all of the light when closed. Both types are available with a variety of options and upgrades, such as ladder tapes, which add color, cover route holes and improve privacy and routeless slats, which provide a sleeker look, and let less light leak in.  As you browse our collections, you will see a variety of beautiful stained and painted finishes, and valance options, that range from modern to classic. In addition to our standard cord lift, choose continuous cord loop, cordless or motorized.When trying to decide between Real Wood and Faux Wood blinds, here are a few things to consider:

  • Real wood blinds offer more choices in terms of slat sizes, valances and finishes.
  • Wood blinds are lighter than faux wood, making them easier to operate.
  • Wood blinds require fewer lift cords, providing a clearer view out.
  • Wood blinds may warp in high moisture areas.  Choose faux wood blinds for bathrooms, kitchens and coastal regions.
  • Faux Wood blinds are easier to maintain and clean while resisting warping, cracking and peeling.
  • Faux wood blinds are easier on the budget, and have much of the same look as their real wood counterparts, but typically cost around 15-25% less.
  • Darker wood tone faux wood blinds may warp in windows that receive intense sunlight in high temperature regions such as Phoenix. Choose real wood blinds for these windows.
