Wood vs. Faux Wood Blinds
There is a misconception out there that faux wood blinds are a superior option to real wood blinds. This is simply not true.
Wood blinds are lighter, stronger, and much more durable than their plastic counterparts. The paint finish on a wood blind will typically last twice as long as the finish on a faux wood blind. The slat material on a faux wood blind is more susceptible to warping due to extreme heat and more likely to yellow due to ultraviolet light. Faux wood blinds are the perfect option for bringing the elegant look of wood into your home without the hefty price tag often associated with it. We're experts in matching the style you want, and we'll work hard to ensure a quality, professional process throughout.
We have removed many wood blinds from Phoenix and Scottsdale that are 30 years old or older. Typically, these blinds are still in working condition and have minimal damage from the sun. There is also a beauty to wood blinds that cannot be matched by a plastic blind. We offer faux wood blinds with the following options:
- Slat Sizes - 2", 2 ½", and 3"
- Whites and Neutral Tones
- Printed Stains
- No Holes or SmartPrivacy
- Fabric Tape
For an affordable and quality option, choose aluminum blinds. At our company, we offer a full stock of these products. Aluminum blinds feature the following benefits:
- High-Quality Materials
- Hugely Customizable
- Extremely Durable
- 100% Opaque
Vertical Blinds are an ideal treatment for wide windows and sliding glass doors. Available in a wide variety of colors and textures, vertical blinds can be made from textured PVC or fabric. We also offer vertical blinds for commercial applications like restaurants, offices, and schools. Commercial vertical blind bids are available upon request.
