If you’re looking for the timeless and elegant aesthetic of wooden blinds, you actually have more choices than you might have thought – Expression Blinds can provide you with a range of wooden blinds, and also a full range of faux wood blinds options in a variety of colours and finishes!
What choice you make will be up to you, but might depend on factors like cost, the size of the windows in question, the look you’re going for, and what room you intend to use the blinds in – your fitter will explain everything in detail to you during your free consultation so that you have all the information you might need to make the best decision for your home.
Whichever you choose, both wooden blinds and faux wood blinds can really transform the aesthetic of your home, and both can provide you with durable, easily-maintained blinds that you’ll be able to use for years to come!
What’s The Difference Between Wooden and Faux-Wood Blinds?
The most obvious difference between wooden blinds and faux-wood blinds is the material that they’re made out of. Wooden blinds are made from slats of high-quality wood, while faux wood blinds are made from a strong, lightweight composite PVC material, with wood prints added on afterwards. Both blinds types are available from Expression Blinds in a range of stains and paint effects to match up with the décor scheme that you’re aiming for, but the wood-effect prints on faux wood blinds give them the edge in versatility, as they can be printed or painted in more diverse styles than natural wooden blinds.
Each blinds type is suitable for different applications – something else that your fitter can talk to you about. For example, wooden blinds tend to be lighter in weight than faux wood blinds, making them more suitable for very large windows where the mass of the blinds begins to add up. However, this issue can be circumvented by splitting the blinds up into multiple sets instead of opting for one massive blinds fitting.
Wood can warp or crack if exposed to excessive moisture, too, which would make faux wood blinds more suitable in rooms with very high or regular humidity like the bathroom or kitchen. Whichever you choose, Expression Blinds will be happy to manufacture them to your exact measurements and fit them for you to make sure you get the ideal fit on your windows!
Both wooden and faux-wood blinds are available with decorative cloth tape to match your décor, so just ask about what we can do for you and we’ll explain what the options are!
