Considering Blinds? Why Faux Wood Might be the Perfect Choice
Like many “faux” wood products today, new technologies have made telling the difference between faux and the real thing a lot harder. Take these beautiful Graber Faux Wood Blinds, for example. They’re beautiful, easy to clean, and moisture-resistant, so you can feel free to use them in high-moisture areas like a bathroom where real wood blinds might warp over time.
Beauty and Practicality
Faux wood blinds aren’t just beautiful, they’re super-practical too. Strong and durable, they provide the same tailored look as real wood blinds, yet they’re considerably less expensive, which is important when you’ve got a lot of windows to cover.
Another practical benefit? You control light and privacy, letting in as little or as much light as you want, and creating complete privacy when that’s your preference — say in the bedroom or bath. Speaking of light, the wider the slat is in blind, the fewer breaks in which to let in light, so wide slats are a good choice in a room you want to stay dark — like a bedroom or a baby’s nursery. The problem with real wood blinds is that, as mentioned, they’re prone to warping when humidity levels are high and warped slats don’t lie flat, meaning they’ll let in light when closed. Faux wood blinds hold their shape indefinitely, though, eliminating that problem altogether!
One of the hallmarks of blinds is the fact that they look good all by themselves, but also lend themselves well to layering. (Install blinds and then layer with a beautiful pair of draperies or a tailored valance for a more formal look in an elegant room, or add lined curtains for extra insulation.)
Graber also offers motorized faux wood blinds which operate with their industry-leading Somfy motors and remote controls. That makes them not only convenient — allowing you to open and close them from the comfort of your bed or sofa — but also means they’re completely safe in a home with children or pets, since there are no cords to present a choking hazard.
Choose from Graber’s Lake Forest or Lake Forest Premium, or their composites called Traditions — the strongest, most moisture-resistant wood-look blinds available anywhere!
