Article Body:
Faux wood blinds are the most common form of blinds used as window
coverings. This is because they are the perfect alternative to wood
blinds and they are cheap. Fauxwood window blinds are made of vinyl
material or a combination of vinyl and hardwood. They are called faux
wood blinds because they look like wooden blinds. However, they are more
durable than real wood and are suitable for all rooms of the home, even
those with high levels of humidity. Faux wood blinds are also much easier
to clean than wood blinds.

The main reason that faux wood blinds have become so popular is that
homeowners like the look of blinds to their windows and the fauxwood
blinds are cheap. Faux wood blinds can cost 30% less than wood blinds.
They also last a lot longer than blinds made of real wood, which makes
them really cost effective. An occasional cleaning and dusting will keep
faux wood window blinds in perfect condition. In fact, these window
blinds are so durable, you can take them down from the window and wash
them in the bathtub.

You can get fauxwood blinds in sizes to fit the smallest or largest
window. While you can purchase them in the store in sizes almost the same
as that of your window, you can also have them custom made. Custom made
faux wood blinds are not expensive either so you can dress your windows
in the perfect manner without incurring extra costs. They are available
in mini blinds or vertical blinds and you can also get these in motorized
versions.

Installing faux wood blinds is a simple affair. You just have to decide
where you are going to mount the brackets – inside or outside the facings
on your window. Most of the faux wood window blinds come in measurements
to fit snugly inside the facings, so if you want them outside you may
have to look for cheap faux wood blinds that are an inch or so wider.
Once you mount the brackets, then you simply slide in the head rail of
the blind and insert the small covering that keeps it from falling out.
Then you can attach the wand used to open and close the slats and you’re
all set.
Whether or not you install the faux wood blinds inside or outside the
facing, you can use valances and drapes with these blinds. If you
purchase the fauxwood vertical blinds, then this comes with a covering
for the head rail, so you don’t need to have a valance. Most homeowners
do use a small valance or topper over both faux wood blinds and real wood
blinds, just to suit the décor of the room and to add to its ambiance.
