Wooden blinds are the current trend to make homes look classier and elegant. They are excellent options to keep the look and feel of a room chic and contemporary, without compromising on a blind’s true purpose of blocking light and prying eyes. They are low maintenance, inexpensive and are perfect alternatives to boring routine curtains.
With a variety of options to fall in love with in terms of colours, materials, variants and budget ranges, every home owner should consider these wooden blinds as a serious option for their windows and doors. A few colour alternatives include white, ivory, grey, black, plum, red and various shades of yellow, brown and beige.
Today’s home owner also has an option to choose between wood and faux wood blinds, each with their own set of pros and cons. While they both look classic in any home corner and are available easily in all the colour options mentioned above, and more, one can prefer the former over the latter, or vice versa, purely based on the kind of windows you wish to use them on. Faux wood blinds, or artificial wood blinds, are essentially made up of plastic, polymer or a similar non-wood based component, and are made to resemble wood in their looks and function.
Though both are easy to clean and durable, one would prefer wooden blinds for the sheer elegance they offer due to their uniqueness. Their grain texture and colour splatter is sophisticated and cannot be replaced for real admirers of art and elegance. They need slightly more maintenance than their artificial counterpart, mainly in terms of chemicals and humidity, but their sheer presence adds a certain quality to a room like no other. With opening mechanisms that include usual drawstrings to mechanised blinds, there is a perfect wooden blind waiting for every window!
