Faux wood blinds

Bathroom Chic: Faux wood blinds

Blinds today are more than just white on white and boring traditional.

They are textured colored and myriad different types, from roll up, to vertical to Venetian; blinds are used in all shapes and sizes in every room in your house.

One of the more popular types is wooden blinds in either the Venetian blind or vertical blind variety, yet they tend to be difficult to clean and keep up.

The cost is a great deal more than that of a faux wood blind which is cost efficient, doesn’t look all that different from the wooden blind it replaces and is far easier to clean
In a bathroom, a faux wooden blind of the Venetian variety will far surpass the wooden blind because the vinyl does not draw damp or absorb the humidity that is part and parcel of the bathroom

A far more utilitarian blind for kitchen and bath, the faux wooden blind is available now in a wide variety of grains and colors to match nearly any woodwork in your home.

The days when vinyl blinds were white and looked less costly and less room enhancing than the wooden ones they replaced are gone.

New technologies and new methods of molding and coloring the blinds makes the faux wood blind look enough like its more expensive counterpart that unless you are actually touching the blind it is difficult tot ell they aren’t wooden in nature.

Wooden verticals are lovely in appearance but do tend to be far less practical in nearly any room that you have.

The kitchen proffers a grease of moist atmosphere and can cause warping of the wood, or damage to the slat itself when the humidity is absorbed into the wood, or worse yet, when grease from a deep fry is on the slats, which in some cases you will have difficulty removing without using a harsh petroleum soap or a chemical to remove it.

The usage of this kind of soap may in fact damage the surface or coating of the wooden blind rendering it unsightly in appearance.

The faux wooden blind, made of vinyl and wipe clean materials will easily clean up regardless of what it encounters in its life span.

They have the added benefit of being room darkening and energy saving in nature.
