					Faux Wood Blinds - Vinyl Blinds As An Alternative To Wood Blinds

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 d?cor of the room and to add to its ambiance.
