2″ Real & Faux Woods
An Investment You will never Regret
Our horizontal fauxwood blinds give you the best of both worlds! They have the look of luxurious real wood blinds at a price of about 15 to 25% less. Because faux wood blinds are made from a synthetic material, they also offer easy maintenance and care. You’ll never have to worry about warping, cracking, or splitting in environments of high moisture or high humidity so they are an ideal product for bathrooms, garages and more! Consider the popular no-holes routeless option. They come in a textured look of realwood or smooth finish.
Real wood blinds offer a warm and inviting feel to any decor, thanks to their natural look. Richly stained or painted, wood blinds are the modern alternative to shutters. Realwood blinds are perfect for larger windows, due to fact they are much lighter when lifting.
Options for either
A FREE upgraded decorative valance comes standard with each blind. Get your 2″ blinds with the popular no-holes routeless option to stop light from leaking into your rooms, or opt for decorative fabric tapes. Some wooden blinds offer a motorized tilt or the cordless option to raise them without cords, providing even safer and easier operation.
What they arent telling you when you order Vinyl or mdf
(we dont use this):
Vinyl was the first synthetic developed as a cheaper alternative to wood. It can be identified by its appearance, it is not finished and the edges of the bottomrails have caps to seal them. The tilt is a cheap wandtht breaks and bends Not at all “wood like” in appearance like synthetics. Vinyl should NOT be used as primary concern and should ONLY be used in laundry room or garages. Vinyl is available in both hollow and reinforced core types, both poor quality.
Bottom is MDF (theirs)
The material is brittle and can easily break under impact. NOT recommended for large windows. Like most products made of wood byproducts, M.D.F. is very soft and prone to damage which is very difficult to repair, but they SHOULD ONLY be utilized in seldom used windows as long as care is taken when opening.
Controversy also exists around the use of certain potentially toxic materials used in M.D.F. manufacturing. Most M.D.F. uses resins in its production capable of formaldehyde off-gassing, which, according to the FDA, doubles in level for every 10°F increase in temperature. This material is rapidly becoming a major part of the shutter market do to its cost and appearance. Though off gassing can occur with M.D.F. and more than most M.D.F.s contain formaldeyhyde, not all are dangerous and with proper sealing techniques M.D.F.s can be used safely.
