Faux wood blinds are the best value in a horizontal blind. Providing of course, that you are looking for a wood look. The SelectBlinds Faux wood blind assortment will give you the look of wood, at a price that will stretch your purchasing dollars further than if you were actually buying wood blinds.
You first have to decide what matters most to you to determine which faux wood window blind is right for you. The very first thing to consider is the slat size. If you’re interested in the traditional wood blind look, then the 2" horizontal blind is for you. The 2 ½" slats give a more shutter style look to your window blind. They are bigger slats, so also consider the depth of your window when thinking about the 2 ½" faux wood blinds. Windows with narrow sills will not accommodate the larger slats. For a flush inside mount, you will need 3 ½" of clearance in the depth. You will see that we offer just one line of the 2 ½", compared to the 5 styles of 2" blinds. The 2" faux wood blind is by far the most popular choice.
Next you should consider the overall quality of the material itself. The best value in our faux wood blinds are the 2" Designer faux wood, and our brand of 2 ½" Premium faux wood blinds. These faux wood blinds have an incredible 500 hour rating. This rating compares the UV effects on a product. That compares to the average blind rating at about a 200 hour rating. The absolute highest quality blinds in our faux wood collection is the Vogue Wood faux wood blinds. This line offers a wood composite construction, with an assortment of 10 beautiful stains and shades of whites. Any of our lines will give you years of defect free operation.
There are other options to consider while you shop our window shades. Consider the thin ropes that you see running up the slats of horizontal blinds. These are called the ladders, and are used to lift your faux wood blinds. There are 2 options that will give your window blinds a totally different look. The first option is the SelectBlinds’ “no holes Privacy" feature. This very neat little feature hides the ladders behind the slats, giving your horizontal blind a more refined and finished look because there are no little holes in the faux wood slats.
Another room enhancing feature is our cloth tape option. Choose from many fabrics to accent the faux wood blind, and it will run the length of the blind wherever the ladders are. This is a great way to add sophistication to any room in your house.
