Fauxwood vs True Wood Blinds


One of the most commonly asked questions in our industry is: What is the difference between Faux wood vs True wood blinds? 


The best answer we can offer involves educating our clients on the features and benefits of both selections.


Our faux wood 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 (usually PVC or a polymer), they also offer easy maintenance and care.

You won’t have to worry about warping, cracking, or splitting in environments of high moisture or high humidity, making this an ideal product for bathrooms, kitchens, garages, kid’s play areas, etc. Faux wood blinds provide superior insulation!


True Wood blinds, on the other hand, offer a warm and inviting look to any decor. Wood has long been associated with strength and aesthetic beauty.



We often recommend True wood blinds when our clients need to match a particular wood stain or a custom paint trim color.  Keep in mind that there is no comparison between faux stains and the rich beauty of a true wood stain, but we do carry wood grain-like options in our faux collections as well.

Wood blinds are also an ideal choice for wider windows. Because of the lighter weight of real wood blinds, we can generally accommodate a wider window opening with a single blind. This is always a preferred choice over two blinds in one window opening!


Both Faux wood and True wood blinds come with a decorative fascia at the top as a standard feature. 


Both are aesthetically pleasing choices to dress up your windows! 

It really comes down to personal preference and/or budget.
