The right choice of window treatment can alter the ambience and overall look of your home. Blinds are the perfect choice if you want absolute control on the amount of light and shade that permeates into a room. Available in different materials, your choice should be based on the purpose for which you are installing them.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Choosing Faux Wood Blinds_feture

One of the most popular choices is faux wood as it has a number of benefits associated with it. Considering the benefits and the drawbacks, you can determine whether this is going to be the best choice for your home.

Benefits:

  1. Moisture Resistance

Compared to natural wood, faux wood blinds are more moisture resistant making them last longer in places with high moisture like the kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms. This is because they are made from PVC or Poly-vinyl Chloride. They are durable and not as prone to scratching and damage as natural wood. They also do not fade or become brittle from constant exposure to the sun like natural wood though then start yellowing over the years as they age.

  1. Affordability

Synthetic material like PVC is much cheaper than real wood. The price difference, however, does not affect their performance. They can deliver the same aesthetic appeal to your home just like natural wood. Though the shade choice is limited compared to natural wood, these blinds can match the interiors of almost any household. Since they are value for money, you can dress more windows around the house without stretching your budget too far.

  1. Easy Maintenance

Vinyl is easier to clean than wood as you can use soapy water and other similar solutions without damaging the material due to moisture. Unlike wood, they won’t rot or warp over time. Periodic dusting will ensure that it looks as clean as new. Using specific rinsing solutions or light pH-balanced liquid soap and water can ensure the blinds last you for years to come. You can clean them as much as needed as they are not prone to damage from moisture or scratching.

  1. Durability

Materials like vinyl are much more durable compared to natural wood and can last for years if they are maintained well. They are also pet-friendly as wood is more prone to breakage as pets cavort around the house. PVC is a type of thermoplastic and it is constructed to be fire resistant as well which is an additional advantage of such blinds.

Drawbacks:

  1. Appearance

The obvious drawback is the appearance as even the best quality faux wood blinds cannot completely mimic the sophistication of natural wood.

  1. Pliability

Moreover, PVC tends to soften up and become pliable from exposure to high temperatures and hence such blinds cannot be used in areas where the temperature consistently stays around and above 55 degrees Celsius for months.

  1. Irreformability

Lastly, they cannot be re-stained and have to be entirely replaced when damaged. You cannot have them repaired.

When you understand the characteristics of faux wood blinds, you can easily determine if it suits your home. Your ultimate decision should be based on major factors like durability, affordability and basic features.

How to Use Shades and Blinds to Make Your Room Appear Larger

Your home may be small but with the right light, colours and accessories it can look spacious and become functional. The right window treatment can also leave your home appearing spacious making the decision to shop for window dressing an important one. Smaller spaces are challenging to decorate and get cluttered easily. But strategic interior décor can create an optical illusion of space. Give your small apartment a healthy airy feel by installing the right kind of blinds or shades. Here are certain suggestions which can guide you while making the choice. The Colour and Material Lighter colours and sheer materials for blinds and shades allow more natural light within the room. Faux wood and vertical blinds are sheer enough and allow enough light to enter. Pleated graber shades in lighter colours like ivory, eggshell, light yellow, lilac and similar pale colours add to your privacy and make your room appear spacious as well. Allowing more light within the room imparts an airy feel about it. Simple, and Made-to-Fit Choosing a shade that is made to fit the window adds a minimalistic charm to your home. If you have less leg room, such décor is perfect for their unobtrusive nature. The sheer fabric becomes translucent under any light which makes the room appear brighter. Heavier and thicker window dressings may look beautiful but cast shadows making the room seem congested. Outdoor Window Treatment Larger windows make the room look bigger. When the shades or blinds are installed outdoors, you can control the light within the room and create an illusion of larger windows. Let the edges of the shades overlap the window frame up to several inches from the outside which will make them appear larger. Vertical Window Dressing If your room has a low ceiling, vertical blinds and shades will draw the eyes towards the ceiling. This will make the height of the room appear more than it actually is. Creating an illusion with the vertical height will make the overall room appear more spacious and airy as well. Vertical blinds are made to fit the patio doors and windows against which they are installed and hence do not take up any extra space. Solid Colours If you are choosing shades over blinds, go for solid colours instead of textures and patterns. Solid colours are generally matte, and they subtly add to the square footage of the room as they reflect light uniformly. This will not be possible for shades with patterns and designs due to the variations in the colour. When you want your room to appear larger, every inch should be accounted for. Window treatments can create an illusion of open space in a small apartment when chosen right.  Apart from window dressings, strategic use of mirrors and placement of open-bottom furniture with longer legs can also visually enlarge your room.
