Wood vs. Faux wood? Everyone wants to know which is better, most durable and are you able to match my stain? The answer is yes! We know that doesn’t make much sense so we will lay out benefits and deficit of each and let you decide! Either way we offer both options.
Blinds made of real wood are versatile, low maintenance, offer complete privacy and come in a multitude of colors. Wood blinds can be used in any room of your home to bring that complete look, they are stained and sealed so they handle humidity well. They are virtually low maintenance, you don't have to spend hours cleaning them. They provide a darker look to any room and cut out the majority of the sunlight which allows for complete privacy instead of other blinds that have a translucent to them. Although we are unable to provide a custom stain as the blinds come stained we are able to match most stains with our variety of products.
Wood blinds while carrying many benefits, unfortunately, are not the most durable in Florida. While they can withstand mild humidity like that of a kitchen or bathroom, the constant humidity levels in Florida can cut the life of your blinds. They also struggle in extreme heat and fade easily. Considering the location in Florida that we are in they can cause you to replace them every several years due to color deterioration.
Faux wood offers all the same benefits that real wood does, however they do not warp in heat or humidity and they do not fade. Many homeowners in Florida have moved to Faux wood because it affords homeowners the same great benefits, but their durability and lifetime tends to be longer. They are also significantly more affordable without sacrificing quality.
