Adding elegant window coverings to your home doesn’t have to be a hassle! While real wood window treatments require a lot of care to keep them in good shape, the same isn’t true of faux wood blinds. They look the same, but are much simpler and cheaper too! Contra Costa Windows Blinds’s team is here and happy to help you find out the differences between the two, and much more! Read down below for more information about our excellent custom-made faux wood coverings.
Pros and Cons of Real Wood vs Faux Wood Blinds
Wood window coverings have been a popular and refined-looking choice for many years, and with good reason. They look lovely, and all while complementing any space. However, wood treatments made with real timber also have some maintenance requirements to consider before committing to them. They are susceptible to damage from moisture, especially in areas with a lot of humidity. Any water can cause them to rot, or swell up and splinter. To protect against this, they need repeated treatment. Along with this, special cleaners are necessary, rather than being able to wipe them down. They’re expensive as well, so it’s often more affordable, and much easier, to instead use waterproof faux wood blinds instead.
Spruce Up Contra Costa Kitchens with Faux Wood Window Treatments
Kitchens make a great space for wood blinds, as the natural and welcoming feeling they bring adds a homey aesthetic to the area. However, window coverings made from real wood can sustain harm when in a kitchen. Steam, splattered liquids or oils, and various other hazards due to cooking can damage them irreparably. Their cleaning requirements also make them more difficult to have in such a space. However, waterproof faux wood blinds for kitchens are an excellent choice! With faux wood, there’s no risk of harm by any of the aforementioned materials, and you can clean them up without fuss if needed.
